Today marks 5 years since we closed on our house. I can’t believe I’ve lived in this house since I was 23! The weekend we moved in we were able to unpack some whole rooms and others never got totally unpacked (the guest room, for example, became a dumping ground for every unwanted thing and weird decoration until it eventually was designated as the nursery this year). The photo above and a few others of lesser quality are ones I took during our appraisal. While we haven’t changed much structurally, we’ve put a lot of love into this house over the last 5 years and really made it our own.
