I love how the light streams into the living room. What is the first thing that you unpack or decorate with? We started with curtains. The first two days we were here I didn't have the curtains up and hated looking out the windows into pitch black. I'm sure the one neighbor across the street already has cable and isn't interested in our family sitcom.
The choice for the living room curtains was a sheer white swiss dot. When I first saw these, their original purpose was Aries room, but once moved in I realize how perfect they are for the living room. They hang at just the right height for the kids to run underneath them or for a gentle breeze to make them billow.
So as we slowly (trust me sometimes I feel like we are crawling) making our way unpacking, I hope to keep updating my blog more often. This weekend we are going to try to finish painting the kitchen. My yellow wasn't yellow enough and ended up just looking dirty, luckily we only painted one wall with old color. I hope to put out fall decorations when it's still fall but for now we are enjoying the new sandbox, the extra space, our new floors, and the space where we can all sit together and have a family meal.
