This Old House (Is Ours)

5/1/12


For those of you that don't follow me on Instagram*, here's some big news: Jeff and I got the keys to our new house last Friday!

I'm pretty sure we set a new record for fastest house-hunting, because it only took us about a month to find it. Sometimes being impulsive can be a good thing. We didn't think we'd actually get the house when we put in our offer for it, but it's ours now and we are pretty excited about it.  

The new house is keeping me busy these days. I'm dealing with all kinds of things I never had to worry about while living in rentals for most of my life: termites, broken gates, appliance shopping, and more lava rock than I know what to do with. But as with all new things we encounter, we see this little old house as another adventure to look forward to. Home sweet home.

Here's a photo of the living room from earlier today when I was painting. I have a lot more work to do!
