Life at the Speed of Light

That title is what it feels like in my life right now. On June 10th we closed (on schedule!) on our new house, then we cleaned it FOR. TWO. DAYS, moved in on the 13th (with movers, , unpacked, cleaned The Old House, unpacked some more, then packed clothes and headed to Edisto Beach, SC for a week of vacation. We are back -- for almost a week. We leave this Friday for Emerald Isle, NC for the July 4th week.

Needless to say, there has not been much time for any type of projects. Those will come. One day.

But in the meantime, here are a few pictures of the clean empty new house. I thought I would take many more, but I was too exhausted to keep the camera in my mind! Luckily for us, my mom came up and stayed with us for a week - Sat. to Sat. to help us clean and unpack. That is the sole reason we are not still living out of boxes. Moms Rock. I came home from work on Friday to find our entire laundry/utility room cleaned and organized.

From my viewpoint, there is not a lot that needs to be done to this house. There are no obnoxious paint colors that are slapping us in the face. This is a nice change from The Old House. This time around we can change colors slowly as we start to decorate the rooms. After my next vacation (and perhaps some picture hanging), I will take some after shots of the rooms with furnishings. There are more 'before' shots but they are just bedrooms and kind of boring. I think they'll have more wow factor if I put them against the 'finished' room. Finished meaning "this is what we have to work with right now, but does not mean it's permanent."

I'll be back after our July 4th vacation!!


  1. What a beautiful house! I just love the master bath!

  2. That house is GORGEOUS. There is absolutely not.a.single.thing that I dislike about that amazing master bath. I mean, who wouldn't love those light fixtures and the perfect symmetry of the sinks? Don't even get me started on the wood floors and the kitchen cabinets. Ahhh...
