I've been renting it out and living in it for a couple of years now already (whoa, how time flies!), but a couple of weeks ago I signed a bunch of papers and what have you, and now it's all official. Exciting! There's tons of things I want to do to the place (and will now be able to!), so watch this space!
Also, just to clarify: no, we don't have snow here yet, this is just wishful thinking. It's a photo I took in December 2012 when I had just moved in. But I'm crossing all my fingers and toes and hoping for tons of snow this year too!
