New House Preview

Daniel and I are caught up in a crazy back-and-forth of emotions the past few days.  We are SO excited to be homeowners.  We are SO terrified to be homeowners.

Overall, we are so thankful. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but this house is such a blessing on our marriage.  We can't wait for the intentional together time buying this house promises us--we have so many projects dreamed up! Last night we purchased a few little paint samples--we plan to try them out on the living room wall tonight so we can start painting this weekend. You're going to get tired of home project posts soon! :)

For now, here are a few outdoor photos: 

I'm in love!


Day Date

Today was gloomy and wonderful.  I had a last minute engagement session postponement due to cold rain, so Daniel and I got to spend our first Saturday together in a while. We took advantage of it by rug shopping and eating a yummy lunch at PF Chang's.  That may not sound terribly exciting to anyone else, but I've been kind of a wimp about eating out since I went gluten and dairy free--therefore we haven't had any out-to-eat dates in three months. But there are places with options, and we were impressed by today. Fried rice seriously HIT THE SPOT. 

Intentionally spending the day with my husband was a treat--something I need to make more of a priority.  It's too easy to get caught up in coming home after work, eating dinner and turning on Netflix without looking one another in the eye and then using free weekend time to play catch up on cleaning the house without really communicating. I'm still so excited to be this man's wife!

Happy Saturday, friends!


Dreaming of Home Projects

We close on our house in ten days. TEN DAYS! Time is flying, and we are so excited and so nervous. 

However, our lease isn't up until May, so we won't be moving in right away.  Instead, we're thinking about taking advantage of the little gap by using our new space for projects.  Painting is first on our minds, but we're also dreaming of a few other things we could get done in the empty house and garage before we fill them with furniture and such.

I can't wait for this adventure with my hubs!
