It has been a little over a month since I moved to a home with the love of my life. What makes it extra special is that this is our first place we can call ours. While the move was quite hectic and stressful around the holidays, we have come a long way from having tarps and painting essentials all over every room. The lime-green walls are finally white.

We finally have a couch so we don't have to watch Netflix and eat dinner on the floor. We have a fridge so we can finally go grocery shopping and just cook instead of take-out. While those four key furnitures are all we really have as far as the big essential must-haves in a home, I can't help but continue to look for the perfect complimentary pieces that would make this space feel more like home.
