new home.

 This is not my home. It's just cute.

We're just a week away from closing on our first home. Actually, I'll be doing it all by my lonesome because Todd is headed to Costa Rica for work. I'm such a big girl. I really, really hope nothing goes wrong.

I've been thinking so much about the house and everything I want to do with it. I've even started a Pinterest board to keep track of my inspirations. A few of them, in no particular order:
  • A mason jar light fixture for the dining area.
  • An antique buffet complete with a bar and a record player.
  • A raised-bed garden with mint, basil, heirloom tomatoes, and cilantro.
  • A yard packed with sea grass, roses, lavender, elephant ears, and jasmine.
  • A fold-out couch so we can use the second bedroom as an office.
  • A cozy writing nook for said office.
  • A little shed to store our bikes and surfboards in.
  • A patio lit by fairy lights.
  • Pretty chevron curtains. 
  • A big party to celebrate.


  1. I can't wait to visit! Your house is going to look awesome, you can't help it.

  2. ooh, all of those things sound lovely. especially a fairy light lit patio and a mason jar light fixture!
