Life In Our New Home

Some photos of the front yard.

Although our home is a work in progress, there are a lot of things I already absolutely love about it!
Such as:
  • Central Heat. I mean seriously, the last 8 months without central heat in the lake home was pretty terrible at times. Even when it was sunny outside {which, of course, is not often here in Seattle} I felt like I was living in an igloo.
  • My yard. There is soooo much yard work to be done, but I already love the openness, abundance of space, and, best of all, the PRIVACY! While washing dishes at the lake house I could easily see into my neighbors living room. Awkward. I would just smile and wave with my sudsy hand and then lower the blinds conspicuously. Again, awkward.
  • Our arbor. In the top picture to the left you can see that Steven and I have an arbor. It is in definite need of TLC but I am thrilled to see what kinds of fruit those trees bear!
  • My kitchen. Two people and a dog can actually fit into the kitchen now all at one time. Amazing, my friends. Truly amazing.
  • The ceilings. As you saw in this post, we have vaulted, wood beam ceilings. I love the look and overall feel they bring to this little home! So much charm!
I can't wait to share the decorating progress eventually! {Right now money is tight; therefore, decor is nonexistent!} It feels so nice to have a home you can say is yours. I am a homeowner. That tastes sweet on my tongue. I am a homeowner. Delicious.

The new home is beautiful! It will be so much fun for you to decorate it and make it all yours. And Huck will love spending time in the yard and having so much space to run and play!

I feel like "homeowner" is something to get used to saying just like "engaged" and "married". Enjoy the newness of it :)

Congratulations! Is it bad to say that I want to buy a house just so I can put my decorating pinboard to use? I sure hope not.

Oh, well, it looks like you've found a dream house in your new home there in Seattle. And that central heating system will surely be a necessity in your new city. :) Good thing that you were able to have one. Cheers and enjoy the life! :)

Congratulations! That is indeed a beautiful house you have there. I can’t wait to see the decorations you’re going to put up. Nothing beats the excitement of moving into your dream house, right?

I like the country style look of your home. The wooden beams and ceiling certainly add to your home’s interior allure. And having a spacious kitchen is definitely a bonus! Good thing you got this one. Hope you post more photos of your home’s interiors, especially when it’s furnished already.

A house that you can call your own is, indeed, something to be proud of. I can only imagine your excitement in decorating every room in your new home. :) Just relax and have fun. I am sure every decorating project you have in mind will be completed in no time.
