Settling In

I have a few more pictures to share of the house! Basically, we unpacked most of our stuff over the weekend and the rooms aren’t just empty beige rooms anymore. It was lucky I happened to be off on the Friday because I moved a bunch of stuff. On Memorial Day, I figured people are most likely done with food for a little bit. Hopefully you enjoyed some time with family. We flew home for an extended weekend not long after moving in. Crazy week!

Welcome to our home!

Moving-In Time!

Well, not exactly. Technically we moved in just under a week before this post is going live, but if you have been following the story this week, this is the final installment. During the week, you have learned about what I loved about our old place (as well as what I didn’t like as much), the house hunting process (uggggh so long), and cleaning out the pantry. The journey only seemed to get less fun, yet still more exciting as we went along. Both of us are used to moving, but it doesn’t get easier. This is my shortest move ever, only about 10 minutes away from our current place. We hired movers because, (a) we’re not muscly enough for my antique furniture, (b) we have lots of stairs in our current place, and (c) we ask enough from our friends as is. Another big reason is time. Moving always takes longer than you expect, and we wanted some help speeding it up.

Stairs at the new place!

Something Old, Something New

As I mentioned on Monday, I am living in a new place this week. There are lots of nice things, more of which will be described on Friday, but for today, I wanted to talk a bit about my current place and what I like about it. Home is, as they say, where the heart is. When I first moved to Washington from Maryland, I was sad to leave behind my large kitchen and cozy bedroom. My husband owned a townhome out in Washington and it was much newer than mine. Some of the changes were nice, like the granite countertops he had installed before I moved. I also like the high ceilings.
