Nine Years Later

We are finally moving into our home.  

I don't know if it was because our house was so big when we moved in or if I wasn't sure what kind of style we liked, but I have been intimidated by decorating our home since the moment we moved in almost 9 years ago.  We decided this week to go ahead and put up some decorations.  If we move, they will be easy to take down and they would all need to be re-packed anyway.  It is amazing how much better the house feels with just a few placed done so far.

Upstairs in the loft we placed two paintings of lighthouses as well as 6 lighthouse pictures from Grandma Seidel.  Every time I pass by,  it makes me smile to see them!

In the living room we added our wedding pictures...

...and some pictures of the kids and family.  We still need to add a couple of small 4X6 frames.  Our plan is to add a Maggie picture, and start taking updated pictures of the kids and our whole family.  Yesterday we went to a thrift store and found a side table so we have even replaced the tray table.  I think we are finally turning into grown-ups!  Now, to go tackle the hallways.
