It's been awhile since I have posted but it has been so busy around here. It took 3 months but we are finally in our new home! We live in a neighborhood next (literally) to the best rated elementary school in the city, by family and friends ( Clark's sister and brother live in the neighborhood too!), next to parks and trails, by Clark's work, by shops and restaurants, and by the grandparents! We have truly been blessed and I'm grateful for a husband that is smart and has energy to make our house perfect for or family. The kids love their own rooms (or mom does) and I love having one floor to tend to. The previous owner had wallpaper in all the rooms and it just was not clean. All the wallpaper is gone and fresh textured walls and paint make the home more inviting. Most of our decorations are up and my Craigslist and HomeGoods finds have brought the house together so nice. I feel like we can actually have a life now. Clark isn't working on the house in his spare time late at night after work so bring on the friends and family activities!
Here are a few pics to get the idea of our new home (can you tell I like neutral) -
Wrap around back patio
My list of to dos will be never ending... hang up curtains, hang more decorations, get plantation shutters, put up kid room decorations, clean the garage, put stuff in the attic, find more furniture...
