Life Lately

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

This weather right now just has me so happy.  My windows are all open, the ceiling fans are on, and a cool breeze is just filtering throughout the house.  This. is. bliss.

I've been recapping our wedding weekend & our honeymoon lately [here, here, here, and here], and will be sure to add more to the wedding recap; however, I wanted to take a minute to explain why the posts have been so far and few between.  You see, this little thing we call life...  I've been living it to the fullest :)

This has been one of the happiest and most eventful years of my life.  I'm not sure many future years will top getting married, going on an amazing honeymoon, and buying a house; to be quite frank, I'm not even going to try any time soon.  

We closed on our house the day after we came back from Mexico and have been painting and remodeling ever since.  Nick's parents came down the last two weekends to help us clean and paint and I am so amazed how far we have already come.  Our entire first floor has been repainted (including ceilings and trim), and a few mini modifications have already been made.  We'll be traveling to the Outer Banks soon & have to go back to school in 2 weeks (oh nooooo!), so it was important that we knock out a lot of the renos up front.  I have a lot of ideas up my sleeve and lots of decorating to do, but here are some pictures to bring you up to speed with life lately in our home:

We will certainly be updating more on all that's been going on, but there you have it.  We've been juggling a lot of excitement and I couldn't be happier!!  Stay tuned (per usual) for more fun to come!
