A Few Snapshots

The move is going well. We haven’t done much yet since my family is coming up tonight to help us with the bigger furniture, but things are moving quickly!

Since I just had my surgery done two weeks ago, I can’t lift anything too heavy so I’m helping with lighter items and unpacking – and, actually, I’ll be at work for most of the day today while Nick is working on stuff until my family arrives.

I’m so excited to get in the house and for my family to see it! It will be fun to have Christmas in our new home ; )

And honestly – it still doesn’t feel real yet. I can’t believe this is our house.

For now – here are a few shots of my favorite parts of the house.


We definitely have plans to change up some wallpaper / paint in the house, but we just fell in love with the layout and the charm of this old farm house. And the updated kitchen didn’t hurt, either ; )





And this view from the front porch. Can’t be beat!

Not sure what will be posted next – most of my food for the next few days will be quick meals and I’m not sure when I’ll have time to sit and post more pictures, but they’ll be coming as soon as possible!


PS: We’re on our way to reaching our goal! If you’re still looking for something to do to give back this season, please consider helping Jovenes.

Help Holly + me raise money for Jovenes en Camino, an orphanage in Honduras for abused, homeless and orphaned children. Tis’ the season for  giving – we hope you’ll join us in this challenge.
