We are in our new home and we are so in love with it. We have only been here for a few days, but many projects have already started. Our home has so much character & charm being built in the 1950's with an addition build on in the 70's. Most of the home is updated, but there are many projects and renovations that we have on our list. Our basement is at the top of the list. The basement had not been updated and it has that lovely, musky old home smell. Patrick came home from work the other day, grabbed a beer and an axe and demoed the basement. He had entirely too much fun doing it. Might have been the happiest he has been throughout this entire move. Men really love to destroy stuff.
I keep loosing Delilah. The house is much bigger than I thought and she is having a really good time running through it and finding places to hide from me. At 6 months pregnant, I'm not moving through the house very quickly, certainly not as fast as her, she's a little lightening bolt. I wish that we would have recorded Delilah walking through the house for the first time the night that we moved in. She was here when we looked at the home, but it was someone else's home then and filled with their things. Delilah spent the day with Patrick's parents while the movers were at our new home. That night she came through the house and went in to each room one by one looking for her room. She would walk into a room and say "oh this is so nice Mama", over and over again. It was pretty amazing. When she found her room she was so happy & excited. I'm so grateful that she is happy and at home here.
Much more on our new home to come. I hope to post some before and after shots as we accomplish some of our projects. Special thanks to everyone who gave us a helping hand throughout this process. Every little and big thing has been so much appreciated.
