Your home was beautiful! Very welcoming. The location was great! We had some visitors (moose) wed. which was fun. Thanks for sharing it with us. First they (the moose) were out close to your neighboor. We saw them from the kitchen window. Then they moved toward your house to where they stopped and ate some by the hot tub and then moved around to the back side. It was snowing at the time so maybe that brought them out too.
