We Bought A House!

I've been pretty mum with details about our new house. Sean and I are first-time homeowners, and buying can feel really uncertain and stressful. I didn't want to jinx it! There were minor hiccups, but everything really went off without a hitch this week. Thankfully, we had a great team and Realtor to get us through. 

The house is a three-bedroom split level. We're staying in Connecticut, and it is walking distance to the beach! The previous homeowners took great care of the place and cultivated some really beautiful landscaping. I'm hoping to be able to maintain all of their hard work—check out those pretty flowering trees in my backyard pics below. 

We'll be spending the weekend painting and sprucing. Monday we move everything in from our Norwalk apartment! It's a really great feeling to have a place all our own, and Sean and I are excited for this special time. Of course, I hope to share all the fun decor and DIY projects with you here! Do you have any suggestions for us as first-time homeowners? Tell me!

  1. Sooo exciting!!! Congratulations again!
    Not many tips from me because I'm boring. But definitely get all your painting done first, which is what you're doing. And try to get everything unpacked as quick as you can otherwise it will take you forever and you'll have boxes laying around for months. Christian's Mom visited basically the weekend after we bought our house so that motivated us to get everything mostly in place, haha!
