Big News: Happy Homeowners!!!

As some of my regular readers may have noticed my blog has suffered a bit of neglect in the past week or so as my hubby and I have had a big purchase in the works: our first house! We closed Thursday of last week and are now the proud owners of this brand new "farmhouse-style" home :) Although the colors were selected before we signed the contract, I am very pleased that the light yellow "heritage cream" siding and black shutters are a perfect match with the colors of the century-old Vermont farmhouse where I spent my youth (and where my parents still live)!


We rented a truck on Saturday and have moved most of our belongings across town from the apartment to the new house, but still have a few more loads of random items to move (how did I get so much stuff?!?) and a TON of cleaning to do at the old place. While that won't be much fun, I am truly enjoying unpacking and putting things away in the new house :) I'm also ridiculously happy to have a mailbox--it's such a simple thing, but so nice after 8 years of apartment living!
I'll be posting more pictures and updates as we continue to settle in, and I have a chance to plan and set up my new studio!!! Stay tuned :)
