Moving On Up

So, before anything else I want to point out the obvious that yes I have been totally MIA lately. As you may (or may not) know from one of my previous posts, I've been preparing to move. Well, after I published that I blinked and here I am, 3 days post-move. Time has gone by so quickly these past 3 weeks that it's all just a blur.

I've never lived on my own before. I've never even lived anywhere other than the house I grew up in. So moving into a new home in a new neighbourhood (only 20 minutes from my "old" stompin grounds) is quite the adjustment.

Buying a house came up for discussion in the Fall of 2011. After driving around neighbourhoods and searching for homes online we finally stopped by a sales centre for a new construction home. They didn't have model homes to walk through, just floor plans. Although it was a risk of not being able to see the actual home first, we found a  plan we loved and decided to buy. Now after a year and a bit of collecting things, buying new things and figuring out where everything will go, we have moved in!

Needless to say, I am enjoying the experience of moving into something that is totally mine. The most exciting part is being able to make this new house into my home. Decorating has always been a passion of mine and now I have 3 bedrooms and 3 washrooms of blank canvas to work with! I am looking forward to sharing it all with you! Right now, there isnt much going on except a mattress on the floor and a box covering our bedroom window. Oh yeah very trendy!
