A Place to Call Home

So today my boyfriend signed his life away and bought a house:









Clearly, I am super excited about this. A bigger house means more room for yarn, right? The moving process will begin this weekend and end by the end of this month (because we do not want to have to pay another month's rent for March).





This house definetely needs some TLC, much like the other house we were looking at months ago.



If you are confused, let me inform you that this room is where the kitchen used to be. Yeah. Let me give you some time so that can soak in. Completely gutted, everything gone, start all over again type of kitchen.

Obviously we're planning on renovating this entire house. However, major renovations will begin this summer. For now, we're going to have to create a make shift kitchen so we can survive in our new home. Used appliances, second hand sink and countertops, peel-and-stick floor tile. In other words, we're trying to make the ugliest kitchen in America. Good thing it will be temporary.



I have no clever way to end this post, so I will say that's all for now. I'm going to be busy moving these next couple weeks, so you might not hear from me to much this month.

What a gorgeous home! I think renovating it yourself will bring so much appreciation to you when it's all finished. Congrats!!

Yeah, a house that will, by main force, be made into the home that you two want it to be. Congratulations. Yippee!!! From those bare walls to something else, over time: add love, and stir, gently. :)
