A Peek Inside

September 23, 2013

Things are moving right along at the new house! We had stone go up last week; all that's left on the front is the porch roof and the white craftsman columns. Trim carpentry has also begun inside, so I snapped a few pics of the progress. I apologize for the quality, these were all taken on my iPhone.

 {Close up of stone on column base-Garage Detail}

 {Master Bath w/ vaulted ceiling, closets will flank the whirlpool tub on either side-Pan is in for the tiled shower}

 {Den looking into the kitchen-Looking down from the 2nd floor}

 {Master BR w/ tray ceiling, B is standing in bath doorway-Sitting area in the master BR}

Have a great night!

Life Update

September 16, 2013

Hey There!

Long time, no talk. :)

Things have been pretty busy around here, thus the lack of updates. Here's a quick update on life in our household!

We celebrated our 1st anniversary and B's 30th birthday in May. I planned a surprise trip out to Denver for his birthday and we had such a great time catching up with friends.

We also listed our townhome for sale in March, and it sold in July. It was bittersweet for us since that was our first home together, and we did really love it!

Currently we are finishing up on construction of our new house! It has been fun/exciting/stressful/crazy all at the same time. We started with this back in May...

And now we are here...

The plan is to close by the end of October at the latest, but hopefully it will be a little sooner. It's been so fun to watch all the details coming together that we picked out (everything from the roof shingles to siding to countertops). Please forgive me if house-related things make up the majority of my posts for a while. :)

Hopefully you also noticed that the blog had a little design refresh. I'm super excited about how it turned out so I hope you like it too. I think it will make navigating around a little easier AND prettier to look at. Stay tuned for a fun "welcome back" giveaway coming up later this week!
