After closing on July 26 and making enough "updates" that would rival a full-blown renovation, tonight will mark our very first evening sleeping here. Everyone. In their own beds. (Well, the couch for Buddy because he won't set foot on the second floor, but that is neither here nor there.)

There's so much to share, there are so many people to thank and there are so very many things that make me beyond happy. But for now, I'll just say we are all so very excited to be in our house together. There may be concrete lions guarding our steps (they're going, Chip), the trees and bushes may be ready to eat our house, and the basement may look like a bomb went off, but gosh darn it, we're in the house. And it's great.


  1. It's so beautiful! I love those shudders, and the red door, ooh, and that top floor window. Like it all actually. Congrats on finally getting to sleep there. I hope you all slept well. Thanks for sharing the picture. Oh, and don't you feel safer with the lions guarding you?

  2. I am so so so excited for you guys and cannot get over how great it all looks. You all should be very impressed with yourselves (and very exhausted). Lord knows I got tired watching you all do all that work! Can't wait to enjoy the fruits of your labor with lots of play dates!

  3. I cannot wait to come visit. Oh special Buddy, why will you not go upstairs? The steps are easier than your old house?

  4. Yay! I think the lions add a nice character touch and should stay.

  5. I CAN NOT wait for more post! Welcome home TB! Happy new home memories.

  6. So very happy for you!
