Moved In

Little late in writing this post, but what's new? We have been moved in for two months now and besides trying to clear out some piles in the garage and finishing some repairs in the laundry room (more on that later), we are pretty much settled in.

In case you are new to ready my blog, a quick recap of what has happened in the past 10 months is a tree hit our house last November. We had to leave our home that late afternoon and were unable to live in our house for 8 months! We stayed with my parents for 4 weeks and then our insurance company found a house to rent for the last 7 months. We had lots of damage obviously and we added on some other improvements to the house because of the whole "we might as well" stage we were in.

Yes, I was home and with two of my daughters standing just feet away from the tree. It was traumatic and I think the three of us had PTSD for a few months after. I will get more into the whole incident in another post.

Since it has been FOREVER since I last posted, I thought I'd show you some quick photos of what the house looks like now for those of you that have been so kind in following along with the whole rebuilding progress.

This is what our family room looked like BEFORE the tree fell.


This is what it looks like now

I will do another post on the kitchen very soon I promise! Also, lots of posts to come regarding our plan and what things changed and why, what all got repaired, choices I made and why and what to expect when you go through something like this and I pray none of you ever have to.


  1. I just discovered you on Pinterest. So sorry to hear about your misfortune but fortunately you're a lover of design and have great taste so you have an opportunity to put your talent to work in a new direction should you choose.

  2. Your home looks like nothing has happened! It turned out even more beautiful than before!
