Wow, it has been far too long since I posted, and for that I am sorry! We've had a crazy few months, marked by several major milestones which I look forward to sharing with you over the next several weeks!
One of the biggest things that happened recently, is that we purchased our new home. After months of looking online and going to open houses, we found a house that we are completly in love with. Another bonus is that though there are updates we want to do to make it feel like ours, by in large it was already done in a way that we like.
My favorite part of the house is the kitchen. I love having the big island and see my family gathering around it as I cook and prepare for holidays. I will be posting the before and after pictures of our kitchen shortly for you to see the updates we made there.
I also like that we have room, we went from a two bedroom twonhouse to a three bedroom detatched and I realyl have enjyoed having room to have family come over.
Another perk of our new place is that we back on to a green belt. It's funny, my city loving husband and I really apperciate being in a more remote town with nature, and our backyard makes it feel like you'r eon vacation, which is perfect for when you come home after a hard day.
Another perk of our new place is that we back on to a green belt. There is a creek, tons of trees and a walking path between us and the folks behind us.

On our list this year for improvements are: kitchen updates (already done and excited to share), expanding our driveway/landscaiping and painting in the upstairs. I will share all of our tips and tricks that we learn along the way, but as a first time homeowner I really am looking for tips and tricks from anyone who is reading this.
What have you done to make your house feel like home? What special touches are you most proud of?
I love to cook, entertain, craft and create - all while being a wife, friend, daughter and a mom to a little boy.
