A Trip To Venice


It's so nice to finally be able to travel. We live in the heart of Europe and really haven't been to THAT many places. But Patrick and I are definitely trying to change that, as much as we can.

This past month we were in Venice, Italy for 4 full days and it was a lot of fun to see a different culture and hear another language. Even learned a few little words while we were there....what was funny to Patrick and I was that we came across some "musical terms", most of them being in Italien. So we could guess what some things meant just because of our musical background.

Let me stop here and just let you enjoy the beautiful view. These are just a few of my favorites from the time we were there. Of course I made like over 2000 pictures during that time. ☺

Guest Bedrooms


The next big thing on our apartment TO DO LIST was to get our guest-bedrooms ready for our family visiting! One of our reasons to have a bigger place is able to comfortably entertain and be able to host guests for a week or two.

February 2018 - Home Tour

 For this month I thought I'd do a simple little tour of the rooms that are presentable...the rooms you would get to see if you'd come over my house.
The other rooms are still going through the sorting through boxes stage and are far from presentable... but in the next few weeks  3 other rooms should be looking presentable as I have family coming to visit next month! 
What?? Only 4 more weeks to get them done?? Oh no. :D
On top of working full time and getting those rooms organized my mom and grandma are in the process of downsizing and moving...so we shall see how much I get done.

Little Changes & Big Changes

So I said you'd be hearing from me more and now it's almost a month later!

It's been a crazy month of moving in two weeks...working full time...trying to get the kitchen functional and buying/building the stuff we need.

It's still quite some time before I will feel like it's more "done" but with one project done after the other...it's starting to feel more and more like a dream home I never knew I could have. The Lord has been AMAZING!

The Blue Birdhouse is Moving

I know I've been quiet here for almost a year. My blog moved to a wordpress site for just a few months, when it was hacked into and vanished from the world wide web.
Just imaging how it could work...the room sizes are not correct...just how I remembered it.
