we bought a house!

after nineteen very, very, very long and tiresome months, we finally sold our house today. as soon as the final paper was signed by the buyer, the stress and worry of it all slowly lifted off our shoulders and floated all the way up and out of our atmosphere. a relief... moments after our house was officially sold, we signed papers to buy a new one... giddy as a bunch of school girls, we went over for the first time tonight to have a look around our new space. a place we will burrow ourselves. a place we will call home. 

we will be taking the remainder of the week to move in ... i cannot wait to take down all of the old curtains, slap some bright paint on the walls and put our things away. so, so excited to nest my days away. 





here are just a few shots i snapped when we first got there this evening. once we were inside we were busy walking around and watching the kids run wild in and out of every room. it was so happy and wonderful ... i will be painting the front doors soon that are currently red ... i'm thinking a mustard yellow? we'll see!

  8. Feel free to walk around your new home, then go around some more to discover its features and merits. You've certainly earned that tour, having slaved over the search for months. Here’s to more months of appreciation and appraisal! Cheers!

  9. That is a really big house and so pretty! Beautiful brick, love the pillars, the shutters, the trees, the bushes, the landscaping is just gorgeous! There is going to be so much room for your family to enjoy and watch your kids grow in. I'm sure you will have all kinds of fun getting your new home set up and decorated the way you want. Enjoy your new home.

  10. That is such a great new house, the color and the detail are just fantastic. I showed my wife the pictures and she agrees. Kind of makes me want to go out and improve our house. Maybe a splash of new color and some good old fashioned wood work will bring it back to former glory. Thank you for this.
