moving in & moving up

Since my husband and I moved into our first house about three months ago we’ve done a lot of updates, despite the holidays putting our home renovations on pause.

(Ha! You can still see the 'Sold' sign in the front yard in this one!)

One of the biggest challenges so far had to be the kitchen. To say it was ‘blah’ is an understatement; builder-grade everything with a sink too shallow to wash a pot in, and a dishwasher and oven that broke within a month of moving in.

New beautiful granite countertops, new (ah-mazing) undermount sink and faucet, all new appliances and a couple coats of paint later…ta-da!

I LOVE it! We are planning to refinish the cabinets in the spring, when the weather is more cooperative for some outdoor drying time. In the meantime, I think the difference is night and day.

And these appliances are my new best friends! Oh yes…this range is not only beautiful, but it cooks some delicious dinners! In fact, I may just have to share a few recipes soon.

We’ve got plenty more projects in the works, partially completed, and still on the to-do list. But that’s the beauty of having our very own house! We are doing what we want and learning as we go…and enjoying every wonderful (and sometimes frustrating) moment!
