1 short of 2

One month and Anush will be 2 years and I will stop counting monthly birthdays.

As a present to ourselves and to her, we have completely cleared our housing loan today!!

Four years ago, we decided we would buy a house and froze on this one- the third one we had seen. It was love at first sight- Front facing, first floor, lot of light, Ceebros at that.

We planned and decorated it. We even named it- an acronym using the first letters of our parents and us- VARNAM

Every few months we would exclaim- We now own the bathroom".. OR .. " We now own the dining area"

Navy- if you read this- It feels good! Varnam is ours now.
