The other day Nate noticed that our thermostat is set to 65, as always. "That's why it's so cold in here!" Well, that's true too. But that's just how it is done at our house. These big windows in the back of the house toast us up whenever the sun in out, and we love that. It was a high of 10 degrees outside today, the last day of 2015, but that warm carpet inside was even better than socks. We just lay around for a while, 2/3 of us eating candy canes.
Nate knew this exact scenario was important to me when we were house shopping. Maybe I could even say this exact scenario is about 85% of why we live here.
