It has been nearly a year since we moved into our 'Forever House.' I posted Open House pictures back in March even though we hadn't finished settling in, and a few of the pictures were taken before we moved in.
Since I have spent the last week cleaning and organizing in anticipation of hostessing book club (isn't entertaining a great catalyst?), it seemed like an ideal time to invite all of you to another open house. So, welcome, and come on in! Our library/school room is straight ahead through the French doors. (Unfortunately, it became my 'stash and dash' room, so I will post pictures later... Grin.)
Below is our living room. The kitchen is again straight ahead (we'll go there last of all so we can sit and enjoy some hot spiced cider). The hallway is the opening on the left. We'll head down there in just a moment.
This is the view from the kitchen doorway~ looking back toward the front door.
We've now walked down the hallway to the master bedroom. Some day we'll have a master suite, but until then we'll enjoy this cozy little room.
I hesitated to show you this messy picture, but if you were here you would see it. Russ built me these wonderful shelves which I have yet to organize. I still use one of the dressers as a changing table (when it isn't covered with clothing and what not) since we don't have space in the boys' room.
This is the hallway view from our room back into the living room. Through the curtained doorway is the tiny stairway leading up to the playroom. If you were really here, you would still not be allowed up there. Maybe tomorrow. Or the next day. To the right is the boys' room.
Ah, we are now entering my favorite room. The quiet room. Sometimes. Leif is only taking naps in here. At night he sleeps in the play pen in the school room. It's soaking in and he will be brilliant by the age of 3.
And we are heading back into the hallway...
I'm sure you were just dying to see our bathroom, but it is nice to know where it is... just in case.
And now back to the kitchen for some cider. Our dining nook is to the right. I love the way the sun pours in the window all morning.
