This is not a post about the new house. Rather, it is a post of things that I'm excited about/inspired by in terms of leaving behind this apartment and moving to a bigger space. Since I read decor blogs and use Pinterest and Houzz on the regular and did so before we were even considering moving, I don't view this as jinxing anything. It is just me sharing things that make me excited about houses in general.

Things I'm looking forward to about one day having a real house:

....being able to paint/wallpaper. Loving the idea of navy blue walls, beige walls, gray walls, wallpaper. I have so many ideas its going to be hard to par them down!

....being able to entertain. Currently we live in a 900 sq. foot apartment and we eat dinner at the coffee table. It will be nice to be able to have guests over for a real dinner or host parties!

...being able to have a space to myself and to organize! We've lived here for three years, couple that with the fact that I moved from my parents house where I had a lot of space plus the gifts we received from our wedding last year, there is stuff in every nook and cranny in this apartment. It will be nice to have a space to do work that doesn't feel overly cluttered.
