Our House

I obsessed over finding a house of our own for some time.  It's now been 7 months since we moved in and while there have been some challenges, I am always thrilled to walk through our front door and be "home."

Over Easter, our new house had the chance to show off a bit.  My parents, sister, brother and sister-no-law came down from Canada for a visit.  Our house got to hold 9 of us over several days of eating, drinking, playing and generally having a lovely time.  

It was the first time I have been able to have my whole family together in my own home, and it felt so nice.  I now frequently remind myself of my Dad's kind words: "You have arrived."

So thanks to my family and thanks to my house.  I love you all.

Congrats on your new home! I just found your blog by searching for a "house" graphic for my home decorating idea binder. We have much in a common. I have a 4.5 year old little girl and a 2 year old boy. So glad I found your blog! I'll be back for more! Looking forward to your new home updates!
