three words.

I have three words about the new house. Worth. The. Wait.

I've been unpacking since we spent our first night here this past Sunday night.  This is our third massively renovated/rebuilt home and it's a culmination of all the things we learned and loved about the last two houses. I love the location - Our new home is about as urban as we could get unless we moved into a high-rise a mile away in dowtown. Just what I wanted!

I've been working primarily on the kitchen and the sewing room. We've been slowing retrieving our things from storage and still have a few things to do on the house before I can get completely comfortable. I worked on the sewing room until about 3:00 a.m. night before last and made some pretty good progress. The photo above is Wednesday night.

Here it was last night. I still have a long way to go, but I love unpacking and organizing! I can't wait to give you a little tour once things are more presentable. I hate that I've been away so long (there are 4,800+ unread posts in my blog reader and I'm dreadfully behind on emails), but I'm so happy right now I could just scream. Maybe I will. While I unpack.

Starting with the kitchen and the sewing room - yep, that sounds about right. Will you read all 4800+ posts? oMG!

Congratulations on moving into your "new" house! How exciting. It must be such a relief to get your stuff out of storage and unpacked. I love your order of unpacking - kitchen was always my priority and then the sewing room is quite important too.

How great it must be to be in the house! What is the color of your sewing room walls? Next week I'm getting wood floor installed and am rethinking the color my the walls. Yours look subtle and soothing.

Oh how I would love to live in town again! The 'burbs are okay, but there's just something about the vibe of living in the middle of a big city.

Congrats on the new home!

Congrats my dear :0)

You've worked hard! Congrats on a new URBAN home. I live about 3 major blocks from the high-rises of ATX. I love living either urban or country... not a suburbia lover.
Now you need a comfy chair and foot stool to sit back in and admire your creations :-)

I can't imagine any better room to set up first than a sewing room! Looks like a bright, comfy place to play :) Congrats on the long journey being over and being able to make the new house HOME.
