our new home. i love writing that, saying that and thinking that.
for those of you who don't know our current home is a one bedroom
apartment that we have lived in since we got married 10 years ago.
yes, there are four of us in this apartment, but thanks to the mister
who is very handy, we have been able to stretch our stay here until
now. just a quick breakdown the kiddo's share the bedroom and the
mister made a murphy bed wall unit in our living room, so we all have
our own space. but, it is time to move on. our little fella is almost
two and very active, loves to be outside and among other circumstances
it's just time for a new home. our new home couldn't have come at
a better time (well 2 months ago would've been nice considering Christmas
is just 2 weeks away), but we weren't committed to moving 2 months ago.
we really thought the whole looking process would've taken a lot longer,
but we feel like this house was meant for us and maybe even waiting for us.
i know sounds corny, but here's the gist of it. we had been planning on
looking for a new place when we returned home from kauai. we set out
looking for "for rent" signs around our neighborhood. we found one. when
trying to find the house that belonged to the "for rent" sign, we passed by
our new home. it was "for rent" too. the other house was not us, but this
one we liked what we saw on the outside. so we called, we looked, we
liked, we signed. it just all kind of fell into place. (that's the mister's
luck, stuff like this always happens to him). so here it is. there's some
things that definitely eventually need to be changed, but for now we are
just renting. keep in mind we are getting new carpet (you'll see why),
and we are going to paint the interior in "fresh day" from behr (love that color).
be prepared there's some funky, but there's also lots of potential....
with a 2 car garage
the mister is sold!
kitchen - funky retro, it's kinda growing on me
and yes that's a door to the backyard
in the bathroom - not sure why?
we are truly loving this place and can't wait to
celebrate our first Christmas in our new home.
