We've been here three + months and I'm still having a love affair with our new house. I always think it's interesting to go back through my records and find house pictures to see how I decorated wherever I've been living. And I like to be reminded of things I may take for granted as normal in the future.
This is the view from our front window and it has become a major part of my daily life. When we used to visit Hawaii as a big family my dad would make us march down every.single.night to the beach to watch the sun set. Rough life, right? But enough times of being bossed into watching the sunset became annoying. We called him the Sunset Nazi. And now I hear myself nearly every day demanding that the kids come look at nature's fireworks. Thankfully they don't yet resent it and have started alerting me to spectacular sunsets. Thus I've become a person who takes pictures of sunsets. That pink line at the bottom is the Great Salt Lake.
January was the month when I was expecting a whole lot of people to come to our house so it had to be ready. January 18 was the deadline -- our sealing party. LouLou helped shop. That's her first cart ride.
Finished product of our room. My besties came over and helped me paint it that dark gray and Anna consulted and encouraged styling. She's a beautification wizard.
For the first time in my life we have a TV in our room. It doesn't get much use, yet.
Final product, currently. My #1 favorite thing is the curtains that Amy made for me. Sometimes you need to beg your meticulous and capable friends who can sew to do your real crafts for you. I know my sewing limits. She did a great job.
