now we can play music as loud as we want

June 6th, 2012

I was seventeen years old the last time that I lived in an actual house.

Not an apartment, not a dorm, a real house with a garage and attic and guest bedrooms and a living and dining room that were not the same thing.

It’s a little weird.  It somehow feels very grown up to have a mortgage and a house — but I am slowly getting used to it.  I’m so excited for all the decorating and little updates we’ll be doing (hello, closet chandelier, where have you been all my life?!), I can’t wait for Calvin and Coco to explore our backyard, and I feel so lucky and grateful to have found a place we’ll stay for the next decade (or two). 

How crazy is that?

    Wow – your place is SO gorgeous! Congratulations! I’ve never been to Texas (or any further than the hotel by the Huston airport when our connecting flight was delayed, I should say), but from these photos your new abode reminds me of the houses I’ve been to in Palm Springs, California. Simply beautiful!

    Congrats on the new house! It looks absolutely gorgeous! I love the green wall 🙂 Good luck with all the decorating and furnishing – it’s a lot of work, but it’s so exciting and fun 🙂
    I, myself, am just moving out of the house and into an apartment, which is also exciting 🙂

    Woah! It’s amazing! I’m so jealous of you guys in America – you have the most incredible houses! I stayed in a ‘small’ bungalow in Napa last month and you could fit my mum’s UK bungalow in the front room! I’m so glad you’ve found somewhere you love 🙂 x
