the tour begins

Today is day ten of living in our new house.  And slowly but surely we're getting things unpacked and in place.  It really is starting to feel like home already.  Our living room, dining room and kitchen are unpacked and as we want them, minus paint and decorating, of course.  So I wanted to share them with you. 

I got the idea for compiling pictures into one composite shot of the room from Kal Barteski.  She did it to share her super cute space in this post here and I decided to give it a try.  I wish I had a wide angle lens for such purposes, but alas, I only have a 50mm.  And that just won't do for interior shots.  I used my phone's camera for these shots. 

 this view of the living room is standing right at the front door.  its a big combines living and dining room.  very open with vaulted ceilings and recessed lighting, big windows that let in lots of light and a sliding door that leads to the back yard and our patio. 
 our large kitchen pantry separates the spaces, and man do I love it!!  There is soooo much storage in this house!  I'm a little in awe of our kitchen.  The house came with the dishwasher, stove and microwave/range hood.  Chris' parents were so kind and bought us the refrigerator as a housewarming gift.  And I have a GARBERATOR!!  (that's a garbage disposal for all you Americans!  lol). 

So there is the first half of my home tour for you.  Still to come: the guest room, office, master bedroom with bath and walk-in closet, the other bathroom and the laundry room.  We're hoping to get some paint soon to get started with my office and the master bedroom, so I'll probably wait and just share "before&afters" with you once they're complete. 

Its been a little slow here on the blog, but life right now is anything but slow!  But all good things.  I am now regular auxilary pioneering, which takes up my days off work and has been bringing me so much joy.  I've got 2 blog design projects in the works, and one more coming up.  Chris and I are planning our big vacation in August for my friend Katie's wedding.  I just finished her wedding invitations and she LOVES THEM!!  Chris is in another play that starts in June and has had a bunch of rehearsals and read-thru's.  So fun!  and my sister Megan is getting married at the end of this month. 

So yeah, crazy busy! 
But good busy. 

So thank you to all who stop by amidst this crazyness and say Hi.  I'm so glad to have this space online to share.
