House Tour

It’s been a little over a week now since we moved into our cozy new house. It’s hard for me to put into words how happy my heart is, even with all of the chaos and uncertainty going on in the world right now. This house has been everything I dreamed it would be and more. 

I know that there are a lot of mixed emotions swirling around due to the pandemic that the world is experiencing and it can feel strange to see content online that is meant to be light hearted and happy. I thought about waiting to share a look at our house for a later time when things aren’t so hectic. But then I thought that maybe somebody out there might care and would like a little piece of normalcy to cling to. Also, who doesn’t like looking at pretty old houses? 

I want to write an entire post on our house hunting journey and how we came across this house. But until then, I’ll just say that this house came to us at the exact moment we needed it. God answered my prayers and gave us our dream house, and I am feeling so blessed that I get to live here and make this house a home with my boys. 

Okay, so here’s a room-by-room look at our 1930s house. Most of these photos were taken before we closed and got the keys, so not much has been cleaned and all of the rooms are empty.

Dining room. This china cabinet was already here when we bought the house. I don’t like it, so if anyone is interested in it let me know!

Sunroom. This room was not originally part of the house. The brick was the exterior of the house and I love that it was preserved like this.

Brendan and my bedroom. I somehow didn’t get any photos of our bedroom when it was empty, so this is a little sneak peak of what the house looks like now.

Home sweet home

So there you have it! I love that this house is full of character and has so many fun details. It definitely seemed big at first compared to the apartments we have lived in, but I love knowing that we have plenty of space to grow our family here.

Once we get things in place and set up like we want I might do a more in-depth look into each room. More to come on that later this spring! Let me know what you think.
