A Year In St. Louis…And Some News

2014 May 6
by Becky

Remarkably, a year has gone by since we packed up our small-but-crazy-expensive rental house in Old town Alexandria and moved back to St. Louis.

As some very wise person said, “The days are long but the years are short” and oh how we can all relate.

People ask us if we’re happy to be back and the answer is unequivocally YES. We are so thrilled to be back “home” and have just had so much fun getting reacquainted with this city we love, meeting it with fresh eyes—those of parents.

As parents, we think St. Louis is a downright incredible place to raise kids.

It’s no secret my favorite part has probably been the food. St. Louis knows good food.

Since everything is better through music and video, I’ve put together a very quick, two-minute recap of our first year back…plus a little news at the end. You don’t want to miss it.

    VERY exciting news. Cool to see the floor plan of the house – and feeling bad that we didn’t make it over there to see it pre-surgery. Looks like you are moving ahead – but we’d still like to come see it sometime soon! :)

    I LOVE this! I just cried like a big flobbering mess at work watching this. No, I have no idea what flobbering is but that’s all I can conjure up. Too sweet!
