welcome to new hampshire

now that i have my computer back, i can upload the few pictures i managed to take before killing the camera. you can see that the welcome to nh sign says welcome in english and french, because a large percentage of our population in french-canadian. it also has our state motto: live free or die. i think i have already posted about the awesomeness of this motto, but i will pause for a second, brief mention: our state motto kicks your state motto's ass! ad astra per aspera? who out there (besides dorky me) even knows what that means??? or what state it is from? and i dont even know what california's is. maybe something about going into debt up to our eyeballs and not paying teachers' salaries???
this is a side view of the first covered bridge i have ever seen (i think - at least the first one i remember). we drove up to the white mountains on the second or third day i was here and stopped off the highway to see this. apparently there are tons of covered bridges in new england, so this will be one of many pictures you see. i loved the sign that was posted above the entrance to the bridge. we didnt drive over it so thankfully we weren't fined. :D these kinds of scenic views are one of the many reasons i love my new state! (the state motto is right up there!)
today was a gorgeous day and with jeremy's help we got a lot of decorating type things accomplished: curtains hung, pictures hung, shelves created and hung, pot rack hung. not nearly as many piles of stuff on the floor!
