My View From


Our new home.  

Yep, call me crazy but we just closed on a new home yesterday.  Actually it's not "new". It's an older (and much loved) home on one of my favorite streets in my most favorite neighborhood.  I'm giddy happy ya'll.  We have DREAMED of raising our babies in this neighborhood for so long.

We started the renovation today.  Our architect has dreamed up a beauty of a space for us and I'm so excited to get this project rolling.  Naturally I've been "pinning" inspiring home images like a mad woman. So if you're on Pinterest, which of course you are, follow me.  And expect a lot more interiors related posts :)

Here's to making dreams happen.  Happy Weekend!!

Caroline said...

I am DYING here!!!!! I have fallen off the face of the blog earth and don't check my much loved blogs enough anymore since the baby. As I am catching up on yours I see this picture...

I looked a little closer and it looks all too familiar. Oddly enough, I grew up in the house across the street!! Lived there for 20 years of my life and my parents still live there!!!!!

I asked my mom who bought the house and she went on and on about how such a lovely young couple bought it and has great ideas, etc etc. Her name is Janet and my dad is Tommy. I'm headed there tomorrow!

There is nothing greater than raising your babies in the OV, I can attest. Looking forward to seeing you and your family across the street!!
