Firsts

We are now officially home owners!  The keys were ours around noon yesterday and we went right to work.  We brought our tools with us on this first trip knowing we would not be able to wait to get that pink shag carpet and those drop ceilings out.  So many discoveries were made yesterday.  We took out all of the carpet on the first floor yesterday to reveal thin plank oak flooring.  We also uncovered two brick fireplaces and an arched doorway that had been covered up by a weird shoddy closet.  I have never renovated a house, but this demolition part of it is so fun!  Parker described it as the house holding a mystery we had to uncover.  This is fun.

  4. I just found you on Etsy yesterday, and wanted to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE your bags. Hopefully I will be letting you know that with my checkbook soon. (Metaphorically, since I wouldn't actually use a check....) :-) Congrats on your new house!
