Layout: Home Sweet Home

House hunting on a time crunch...not the most fun I have ever had. I was about 6 months pregnant when we decided that we wanted to buy a house and move in before baby arrived. We had the BEST realtor who showed us as many houses in our budget as possible in a very short time frame. It was such an overwhelming process- houses that needed too much work, houses in a bad location for small children, and houses WAY overpriced for the market. The last home we looked at was a light at the end of a very long tunnel! I knew immediately that this would be our home- there was a giant daisy bush right outside the front door in full bloom. Yes please! The home was also move-in ready, which was a must have! We closed a week and a day before my due date...which obviously was not as big a concern as we thought...since baby has yet to arrive!!! 
Supplies: Paper: Lily Bee Designs, Alpha: Lily Bee Designs, Tag: Ormolu, Punches: EK, Martha Stewart, Mist: Tattered Angels, Stamp: Leisure Arts, Rhinestones: Kaiser Crafts. 

Now that we have moved in and I have stopped working, I piddle around the house all day long. I am trying to unpack and keep the house clean, but also trying not to over-do. It feels so great to have a place to call our own! I look forward to building many memories and traditions in this home for years to come!
