-Gone house-hunting for a new place to rent.
-Packed up our little apartment.
-Moved...and unpacked all but approximately 10 boxes.
-Found tenants for a home we rent out in a different town.
-Parted, as Andrew had to leave for some out-of-town schooling.
-Taken care of our sick 2 year old, who came down with a stomach bug that lasted 4 days (he's feeling better as of yesterday, thankfully!).
-Made plenty of pots of coffee.
But we did it! And I love, love, love our new home.
Here's a little peak. We're not all the way settled (of course)...nothing on the walls and still need to buy throw rugs and curtains...but it's a start!
This is the dining room and front door entryway, taken before we moved any furniture in. The dining room is still empty (except for a desk it's temporarily housing) because we don't have furniture for that room yet. In time. We're on the Dave Ramsey plan.
The living room. I'm really excited about having a mantel to decorate. Eventually we'll get a big rug for this room and a coffee table.
This is the breakfast nook! In the morning, the light floods in, and it's so cheerful. In our last apartment, we had absolutely NO direct sunlight, so this is such a welcome change.
The kitchen! It's not huge, but compared to my previous kitchen, it feels massive. And I love it! There's a dishwasher and a gas stove (first I've ever cooked on). There's even a pantry! Bliss.
Here's our bedroom. :) I love how there's room for both end tables to comfortably fit beside the bed.
Lastly, this is part of the boy's bedroom.
There are two other bedrooms, a laundry room, and a garage, which I haven't taken pictures of.
You should know...to take these pictures I had to move half-folded laundry from the couch to the bedroom (where I had already taken a picture). My house is not immaculately clean...just photographed strategically. :D
I feel SO tremendously blessed and thankful that we've found a new place to live. And can I just say...modern conveniences are UH-MAZ-ING. One of my favorite things is when the dishwasher and washer and dryer are all going at once. Such a lovely sound of productivity--when I'm not doing a thing!
What's your favorite thing about the home where you currently live?
