Double Anniversary

We're celebrating 2X this month!

No, it's not our wedding anniversary (not until August). And, it's not a birthday either (Beatrice celebrates that event next month).

It was our 4th blog anniversary last week and we shamefully missed sharing that happy date. January 17, marked the first post on this blog written by Grenville, way back in 2010.

Today, January 20, is when we closed on our VA home, naming it The Frog & PenguINN, 11 years ago.

Here's a few "before" photos from when we first saw our future home. We've posted lots of before and after house photo posts in recent years, especially in this 2012 post by Grenville.


And, more recent photos of our home.
The F&P remains "on the market." While we are hopeful that someday (soon) a new owner will purchase and like love this house, we continue to  enjoy it daily.


AND, of course we're STILL having fun and look forward to another year in blogville. Doesn't it show?


We always welcome & enjoy YOUR visits and comments.

Beatrice & Grenville
(+ Dorothy & Pat)

Happy double anniversary! I hope you have a buyer for your home soon. We are in that same state of limbo waiting for our former house to sell too.

I love the 'new' look of your house. Nice to see the before and later pictures. Stay warm with this new cold wave coming in.

Congratulations. You made so many great improvements on the house. I know what it is like to live too far away from grand kids so I hope you can get it sold soon.

Congratulations all round. You sure did wonders with the place, but I hope you are able to leave it behind soon.

Congratulations on it being a whole four years of blogging. I have NO idea how long I've been doing it. I need to get it printed before I die and my children never even get to see it. It's sort of a record of my every day life.
FOUR YEARS!! Do you wonder that they few by so fast.
Your home is lovely..you sure you want to sell it? :)

Happy anniversaries to you! You've made a lot of nice improvements and made the F&P very appealing. I had to check my blog anniversary date, and sure enough it was last week and I missed it too. Guess we have more important things to think about than to keep track of all those details.

It is a beautiful house!
