This old house

It’s been just over 2 months since we signed the papers, and our house is really starting to feel like home. I was hesitant to take any photos until we had every last project complete, every last piece of artwork created and hung, and every room exactly how I envision it.

However, as I’ve been told before, and am slowly admitting to myself, the house projects are going to always be growing and looming. So, as we’re now settling in enough to finally relax a bit, I thought I’d provide a virtual tour for our faraway friends and family. While this isn’t the whole house, and I hope to share more as we finish making it our own, but I wanted to share some of our favorite details, and hopefully this gives a pretty good idea of the place.

The gallery wall filled with some of our favorite places and faces, going up our [very narrow and steep!] staircase.
