Home Sweet Home

So I guess the biggest news from the last few months is that we moved to a house!  We are currently renting with an option to purchase the house at the current market value anytime within the next two years.  We have already decided we want to buy it, we just need some time to pay off some bills and get a down payment together.  Here are some (somewhat blurry) photos of the house as it is now.  I'm just posting the living room and dining room/kitchen photos right now because most of the other rooms are still kind of a mess from moving.  We still have boxes everywhere!  It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house with an office and a huge living room.  It's very open and there are tons of windows, so it gets great natural light.  The back yard was landscaped by a landscape architect and is so fragrant and green right now, and the front yard has lots of pretty flowers.  We want to do a garden in the back yard when we buy the house, to grow veggies and fruits! It's paradise, really.  I'm in love with this place!

Living room

Living room window - I love these curtains!  My dad made the dragon clock on the wall for Jon's birthday

Kitchen - I love the open cabinets - I think it looks really cool

Dining room - this is not our official dining room table.  That will have to come later. :)

The other side of the living room.  We're going to put another one of those chairs on the other side of that chess table.

We've planted some flowers to decorate back porch.  He also planted an herb garden, which is thriving.  I can't wait to cook with the fresh herbs we are growing!

This creek is right behind the house and is in a protected wetland owned by the local university, so it will never go away and it will stay the same.  They even have cleanups out there a few times a year to combat litter.  It's a gorgeous spot for reading and writing.  I've gone down there several times already just to sit and enjoy the sound of the water.
