Well, we’ve officially moved into the new house! All of our belongings are out of the storage unit and the apartment that we’ve been renting the past three months and it’s the first time since March that everything is under one roof. It’s a huge relief to have all of the craziness of this move from Chicago to North Carolina behind us. Now the real fun begins, which means finding a place for all of our stuff and turning our new house into the comfortable home that we envisioned when we first saw it.
We, well I, have a ton of ideas already and, once my two sprained ankles and broken foot heals I’ll get to work. I took a fall down our deck stairs a few days after we closed and hurt myself pretty good. It’s not the best time to get hurt but I’m just thankful that it wasn’t worse.
Foot issues aside, there is so much I want to fill you in on. I want to share our project plans for each room as well as inspiration for all of the ideas I have for the house both inside and out, because there’s a lot to do outside, too.
Because you need one pretty spot among all of the chaos…
Before we get into all of that, though, I thought I’d share a quick little (unedited) video of the house just a few days after we moved in. There’s no decorating done but our large pieces are in place…for now. And it may look like all of my boxes are unpacked but no such luck. They are in the basement, which is a total disaster area. Anyway, here’s our little stone cottage on day 5 after the big move. Enjoy!
