new home

hey everyone! i'm still here, i promise! one day, i will get better at being consistent. i figured now was a good time to break down and post a pic of the house. we're not close to being done with painting and all that good stuff, so i'll post those pics as we make progress. my head is swimming with DIY projects and decorating, but that post is for another day!'s our first pic with our house:

we have been here for a little over a month now and are so, so very thankful for the blessing of owning a house--one we absolutely adore at that! i could seriously live here forever. it's been quite an adjustment transitioning from the apt, but one that we're more than happy to make! we're slowly accumulating all the essentials of home ownership and have been so blessed by those around us with such generous gifts. joel is becoming quite acquainted with our lawn mower, and i'm learning how to cook on a gas stove...i couldn't even turn it on! i thought you had to use a lighter, so joel had to show sad? we really are enjoying this time together though; everything feels so new and unfamiliar. overall, we are learning a lot, having fun, and trying our best not to rush things--something i struggle with. it's so exciting to be in a new place even if it is just 30 minutes from where we were in our old apt. :)

i'll be sure to update as we finish rooms, so slowly but surely, you will get a tour. :)

So so cute!! I can't believe y'all have been there a month and I still haven't been able to come see it. Soon enough!

Haha! I was the same way with the gas stove. I thought you had to light them, too! :)
