Today marks the 11th anniversary of the day Aly, Michelle and I first toured the property that would become our homestead. “First View” is now one of the high holidays in our little family, an important marker day in our Christmas season (see First View: A Homestead Made Holiday).

I edited the paragraph above to say we “toured” the property rather than “saw,” as I originally composed it. I did this because, technically, we’d seen the property once before.
