In my last post I talked about how I was feeling uneasy about the change. We've been in this house for almost a week, and it's truly been amazing! Although the amount of work that needs to be done is a bit overwhelming at times, I keep reminding myself that we can take our time. It doesn't all have to be done immediately.
On our first night in the house, we began removing some of the heavy drapes that they had covering the windows. I still can't believe that they had covered the amazing stained glass! Having the drapes down lets so much light into the house, and we get some pretty awesome light spectrums shining on the floors and walls as the sun comes in through the coloured glass.
With the electricians starting their work next week, we have left as much in the garage as possible and we're basically living in just a few rooms for now. Even our closet hasn't been unpacked because we know that next week will be a dusty one in the house.
We've really been enjoying the front porch. Having our coffee outside every morning has been a great way to wake up, and with the addition of the palms and ferns that we bought for the wedding, it's really starting to feel like a cozy space. There's an awesome breeze that blows through, and even on a hot day it was still a cool place to sit and take a break. I know we'll be getting a lot of use out of this space in the years to come!
