New Year, New Home!

We have been our new home almost a week! It has been very busy! There were a lot of little detail things that needed to be done on the house so I've been having painters and repairmen come in and out of the house several times a day- not to mention all the unpacking, organizing, blinds hanging, etc stuff we have been doing! Hopefully next week will be a little more low key. :)

We have a lot of work to do still but our kitchen is functional, the remaining boxes are centralized in the office, and all the furniture is in place. So here is a mini tour of our house. (Excuse the little messes here and there!)

Favorite things so far-
- Gorgeous kitchen! I'm loving all my new appliances, the granite, and the fridge we picked out! Plus we have a pantry now, which is wonderful.
- The sound of the doorbell!
- The walk-in closets in every room! Avery has been taking very good care of hers.
- The big yard and beautiful views!
- Beautiful wood floors in most of the main floor. Adds so much character to the house. I'll have fun keeping those clean though!!
- Having more space to spread out! It's great! Just need to get some furniture to fill it up now. :)

Not so favorite things so far-
- My oven exploded glass everywhere the first time I tried it out. A little scary! Got a new one in yesterday though!
- Finding places to put everything that was in our basement! We have plenty of space but not as much storage so that's an adjustment. We'll figure it out!
- Being paranoid living in a brand new house- feeling like we are going to ding it up really fast! I'm sure we'll get over that soon!
- Construction! Now that its a new year they started building 4-5 houses this week on our street! Will take a little getting used to but we're excited for the new neighbors it will bring!

The first week of moving is definitely the busiest one. But it doesn’t have to be overwhelming; just enjoy the fact that you’re in a new house. I bet you’ve finally moved in by now. How is it going? BTW, congratulations! ->Lakisha Zimmerer
