in 3 weeks we will be in our home. our current house no longer feels like our home. it's weird. we're all getting very sentimental, thinking back on what has all happened here. so many memories. so many firsts. but it feels kind of uncomfortable living here right now. all of our special things are packed away in boxes, so it's very plain and blank in here.
but it's funny....we just had the couple that will be renting (super sweet young couple that is about to have their first baby. i could cry.) walk through the house last night. they mentioned that the owners will be replacing all the windows. i felt like i was going to cry. it's my favorite character piece of this house. horribly inefficient. but it will be sad to see them gone.
and yet, i can't wait to get into our new place. to be 'home'.
it will be awesome!
it is *so* exciting to see this when i pull in the driveway! opening up all the fun packages is one of the best feelings. i'm not going to lie, it's been really fun picking out the special details that will make this house feel like our home.
i am crazy for this shower curtain for the kids bath. too bad it isn't in the budget to spend that much on a shower curtain. but it sure is adorable.....maybe i'll save my pennies.
this picture just doesn't do this light justice. it's a big farmhouse pendant. minty green mixed with robins egg blue. it has been a favorite light choice of ours this whole time. i love that phillippe was on board with it. pretty pretty.
progress on the house:
*siding is on
*getting ready to pour the driveway
*getting ready to paint the exterior and add stone
*the finishers have begun their interior work
*we will have our trim walk-thru with our builder before we leave on our trip next week to plan out the reading nook, fireplace, built-in column, shelves, bookshelves, and mudroom lockers. eek!!
we can't wait. it's getting to the point where we're tired of packing and planning and signing papers and we just want to be there. it's hard to fight the urge to go hang out there all day. i'm sure the builders would love that. 3 weeks. that's it. and we'll be gone next week, (costa rica!) so it's really just 2 if you think about it. surreal. everything about this is surreal.
