We got a House, We got a House

......We got a house, HEY HEY HEY HEY!

It's true, as of December 21st Brent and I officially became homeowners!

Since we got engaged in September, Brent and I have been looking for a house. Shopping for our future home was fun... going through the whole bank process, not so much. But, we made it out alive and couldn't be more excited! 

The house is a 1940's bungalow with loads of charm, it even has the white picket fence to boot! It's located in the Peachtree Hills neighborhood here in Atlanta. Peachtree Hills is one of those really happy places filled with people running, walking their dogs, biking, pushing strollers and kids playing in their yards. From the minute we came across this neighborhood nearly four years ago, I was in love. It's in a great area that provides the best of both worlds - it is literally right in the city, minutes from shopping, restaurants, parks and museums but the homes are nestled on cozy, wide streets with tons of trees that offer privacy.

I'm obsessed with the house and the possibilities around every corner. As a designer having my own house is beyond exciting. Finally a space that is all my own to decorate, love and truly make mine. Of course, I'm lucky to be sharing this new home with Brent who is full of ideas that will enhance the space. 

Between the two of us we have several projects we want to tackle before we move in after the wedding in May, (like removing the massive Christmas tree in front of the house), but I'll save all that for another post. Over the next few months I will keep you posted (no pun intended) on our progress. It's going to be a fun process - stay tuned!
