July seems to be the month of anniversaries.
Our wedding anniversary, T's mother's wedding anniversary, the anniversary of losing a friend, and this one: 5 years ago we arrived in the mitten.
The place has, and continues to, grown on us. It's not perfect, but it's not as bad as originally thought.
The mitten does now have the distinction of being the place we've been in the most, so that must be saying something!
