Things Are Getting Real

I realized that I never gave a tour of our home when we first moved in {even though I’d said in numerous blog posts that I would}. So, I guess it’s better late than never, right?

Welcome to our space…

GA House {living outside the stacks}Do you see those beautiful transoms? Yeah, those are what made me fall in love with this house. That and all of the windows. So. Much. Natural. Light.

And those hardwood floors. Seriously, have you ever seen more beautiful flooring?

A dining room that we’ve used three times in the three years that we’ve lived here… Maybe.

My girls and I have spent countless hours around that bar top eating Small Cakes cupcakes and laughing…

The living room… I was never really sure how to decorate the walls. Looking at it now, the pictures on either side of the TV are way too small. How did I not notice this before?

The guest rooms…

This is, perhaps, my favorite room in the house. Remember all of the photos where you all commented on how much you loved my office? This is the room. We’ve reworked it into a family room, but this is where I used to sit and write.

The laundry room.

The master bedroom. Funny thing: for the three years that we lived here, we didn’t have a dresser in this room. When we had new carpet installed in the closet, we moved the dresser into the bedroom and were like WHY DIDN’T WE DO THIS BEFORE?! The room looks so much cozier now.

I know it sounds like I’m sad or worried about the move, but I’m not. We requested this transfer so that we could be closer to our grandkids and grandpups. Like I said in a previous post, The Hubs and I grew up without the benefit of extended family and we don’t want that for our grands.

Our kids have an incredible relationship with my mother-in-law. They call each other every day and talk for hours about absolutely nothing, and I love and respect it. They depend on each other in a way that I can never understand. When my kids were little, they would pack up their clothes on the last day of school and catch the bus to my MIL’s house. And, unless we went to her house or they needed something, we wouldn’t see them until the end of the first day of school when they caught the bus home. That is what we want. Or something along those lines. We want our grands to want to visit and hang out with us. We want them to know their uncle and aunts {who are also either living nearby or planning to move closer in the next year}. We are beyond blessed that this opportunity has presented itself and the joy is just bubbling over.

Beyond excited to be living our next adventure as Papa Tony and Yaya,
