Home Sweet Home

It's hard to believe we've only lived here a week, considering how much work we've already done to get settled in. I'm so happy with how our new house looks & feels. It is a very life-giving space... So many windows, grass all around us, friendly neighbors. Oh, it is so wonderful. I hope that all of our dearest friends & family can come spend time with us in our new home, but for those who are too far away, here's a peek at what it looks like:
So, we'll start at the front door. Here is the living room (my favorite room right now), just inside the front door:
Next, we'll move into the kitchen...
Past the kitchen, we have a laundry nook that leads to the backyard:
Back through the living room, we have a hallway that leads to a full bathroom, a tv room, and our office. First, the bathroom (with an awkward window into the laundry room. Haha):
Then, the office, which is not finished yet, so I'll just show you our awesome DIY wall bookshelf:
And then, the TV room:
From the TV room, there's a stairway up to the master suite!
On the right, the oddly-shaped bathroom:
And on the left, the oddly-shaped walk-in closet (which I love):
And of course, the master bedroom:
From the bedroom, we can step right out onto our balcony and down the stairs into the backyard:
And when we walk around from the backyard to the side of the lot, we'll soon have a big garden full of veggies!...
And back around to the front porch:
So, that's our lovely home! We hope you can come by sometime :-)

Haha, well then I guess it's a good thing that the 5 people who read my blog already know my address anyways. Lol.

You have no idea who reads your blog! I've gotten a comment before from someone not following me saying he wants to kill me and then have sex with me in heaven. Just sayin'... I'm extremely private with my personal information online, I won't even put where I work or anything. The only way to know for sure is to make your blog private. If you're comfortable with it obviously disregard everyhing I've just said, but it makes me nervous for you.

Ahhhh that was the creepiest comment that dude left you! Now I'm paranoid. Officially took that picture off... I don't want any creeps figuring out what street I live on & coming to kill me in my sleep (and then have sex with me in heaven...wtf).

Love you :-)
