I'm back! And moved in!

I'm back! I've never taken that kind of leave of absence from TTS, but I really needed it... so thanks for sticking by.

The past week has been nuts. We moved out of our old house, and into this one (with a little construction still happening). At this point everything is done with a couple exceptions: Powder room is being wallpapered today, waiting on fireplace surrounds and shower doors, but otherwise, we're in really good shape.

Because this was all sort of a whirlwind, I didn't put a lot of thought into decorating before we moved in. I wanted to focus on the kitchen, bathroom and family room construction first. So now that we're in, its time to start brainstorming decor. I knew that our current sofa wouldn't work in this space so that our number one priority right now. We also need new dining room chairs ASAP. But for now, we're making what we have work and loving our new home.

Its amazing, a week ago I was sitting at our dining table, crying to my husband about how sad I felt leaving our home and now, only seven days later, I'm so happy and excited about our new place and haven't looked back once. Its funny how these things happen. I don't love the anticipation of change, but once it happens, I am always alright (a good thing to keep in mind).

So now, a little peek into our new home

The new built-ins in our family room. Turns out I need lots more stuff. We don't have nearly enough to fill all of these shelves.


And our kitchen pendants. These were such a struggle. I knew the space needed something with dark metal and a little edge, but I couldn't pinpoint the ones, until I found these beauties.


The master bath is almost done. Getting our mirrors installed today and totally in love with the sconces.


That's it for now but I'll have plenty more updates soon.
