June 28, 2018
And just like that, we've lived in the country for 3 years. It still feels like we're the new neighbors, with the brand new house. But truthfully, we've now been on this little piece of land since the weekend of June 26th, 2018. So much has happened since then. Great things and bad things, and everything in between! We were not sure we'd actually enjoy living out here. We wondered if we'd "chicken out" once Winter arrived that first year. After just a day and half, we knew it was the right thing. And we haven't looked back.
Since moving in, we've done a lot. We've unpacked, decorated, hung art work, created our art studio, stained the front veranda and began our landscaping. There is still much to do, including finishing our landscaping (will it ever be finished!), creating curtains, putting up the crown moulding and wainscotting, and redoing our master bedroom closet with a custom closet system. The deck will begin off the back porch the week of July 23rd and the veggie patch is in but we still have to put up the pickets for the fence. It's all coming together but we know it will take time to feel like it's finally all complete. And then maybe, just maybe, we'll start all over again in a new location, with a new house plan. Or maybe we'll just stay here. Or even better, find a little spot on our favorite island. The future is unknown but our time here has been our dream and we've loved every moment!
