Allow me to introduce you to our new home: a perfect little house we see being our forever home! If you missed the saga of how we ended up here, I shared a bit of our buying/selling process over here in this post earlier this spring.
The house itself was built in 1930 and was very thoughtfully updated by the previous owners — we feel so incredibly lucky to now call it ours! There are so many projects and interior/exterior design ideas swirling around in my head, I can’t wait to make progress in tweaking it to be completely “us.” That said, we are very fortunate that nothing needs to be done and it is a dream to live in as-is.
I shared a not-so-brief tour of the inside and outdoor space over on IG that I’m re-sharing here to give you a lay of the land:
Everything down to that sweet brick walkway to our front door exudes so much charm, I am still in disbelief that I wake up here everyday now! We have a lot of big plans down the road because I never want to move again and am very set on this being our forever home that we can make decades of memories in. (I’ve learned that, of course, life has a way of throwing challenges and surprises at us, but if I get to have my way, we will grow old and fabulous here.)

On top of these specific projects are just the little moments of creating home, from styling out a bookshelf, getting your bedside table in order, picking little bits of decor here and there — all those little things that make a home perfectly you — that I’m excited to dive into.
Now that I’m settling into a new routine, I’m hoping to get better at snapping decent pictures and sharing more over here. I’m excited to reconnect! Thank you all for the kindest notes that have been sent my way wishing us well in our move. I cherished every sweet word.
I’ll sign off by sharing some of our recent purchases and selections for our home below. Trying to keep tabs of everything over under my “Shop” sections but will need to tidy that up a bit later this month…until then!
