Settling in

We have been in our new (old) house for a little over two weeks now and are getting settled in, slowly but surely. We are all really happy to be in this space. Jacob has done so well with the move, even crying when we were still in the moving process because he wanted to stay at the new house! He's transitioned from a crib to a twin bed in his own room with no problem. I was a little bit nervous about this, because his previous "room" was really just a large closet/small office area off of our bedroom. Now with his own full bedroom he seems like such a real KID!

1. This boy is not interested in this dirt pile going away anytime soon.
2. This mama hen and baby chick planter set, a gift from Red Envelope, couldn't be more fitting for this chicken keeping, plant loving Mama Annie.
3. Moving from a 650(ish) sq ft living area to a 2000 sq ft house leaves us with some empty rooms. We are looking forward to having a fully furnished house, but not rushing out to buy just to fill the space. We don't like owning a ton of stuff for stuff's sake, but I am definitely going to hit up some yard sales soon!

There are still a few small projects to get done, but nothing overwhelming. We still have to build out the chicken area, so for now our girls are at our old house, being cared for by a house-sitting friend.

Oh, and remember when I bought out an entire vintage store and stored it's contents in a 10'x20' shipping container on our property? Yeah...I still need to sort through that and find a new storage solution. Wish me luck!


  1. That is so cool that he gets to have an actual room now and feels like a bit of a big boy! 650 square feet is pretty tiny! 2000 sq ft sounds AMAZING! Wow. I can't even fathom. Congratulations! We don't like owning stuff either. My friends sometimes complain when they come over that we have such naked walls or hardly anything and even took down shelves we used to have up that we didn't need because we got rid of stuff. . .and they just don't get it. I'm glad knowing there are others who don't like a lot of things. I hope you enjoy your yard sales though. Have fun with the chicken area too!! If you have any size small dresses (26-28" waist with small busts 32-34") I'll gladly borrow them from you...haha.

  2. You have amazing floors! I love your blog. I found you over on Cakie's and I'm glad I did!

  3. Ah I am pregnant with my first and we are looking for a new place, all worth it in the end although I am pulling my hair out at the mo. I love the bird planters too. xx


  4. I've never seen planters like that - they're awesome! Good luck settling in and enjoy the free space!
