Our New Little House...

Our new house
I know I'm soooo late with pictures of my new place, but I've been so busy! So here's a little sneak peek for you. What do you think? The boy fell in love with the green shudders the first day we say it :) It's a 2 beroom, 1 bathroom house that was built in the 1930's. I can't wait to show you the inside! We've got so much to arrange, organize, and purchase before this house will feel completely like home but it's so wonderful living here now. Words cannot begin to express how much happier I am with in this space. There's so much more room and it just feels like we are meant to be here. I am so inspired to live the life I've always wanted here and I can't wait to share that journey with all of you!

We're surrounded by trees
We're surrounded by beautifully wide and tall oak trees...and lots of bushes and shrubs in the backyard. I can't wait to work on the landscaping. Things are overgrown and dead now, but come Spring when everything comes to life, I'm going to have some work on my hands :)

There's really not much else to tell right now. I've got to run and get some stuff from Home Depot. We've got a few repairs to make to our old place. Once we do that and do some mopping and scrubbing, we'll be done over there. When I get to drive away from that house for the last time, I'll be wearing the biggest smile ever. I won't miss it one bit. I realize now that me and the boy had to go through living there to make us stronger and we are! I am so ready for 2010!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. We had a wonderful time and maybe I'll get around to posting about it. If I don't, just know that I had the best cranberry margaritas and homemade coconut cake EVER! (It's the boy's grandmother's recipe and omg it's insanely yummy!) Later on that night we had our first fire in our fireplace and it was so magical. Sitting in front of that fire, warming my toes...it was the happiest (and most child-like) I've been in a while!

Stay tuned for pictures of the inside of the house...
