I'm sure these are repeat pictures for most of you, but I have to share on LCaL also. We got the keys to our new house yesterday! Leasing, not buying.
The house is awesome. Like, whoa, this beautiful charming Hyde Park house is AWESOME!
Here's a sneak peak at the front, alá dreamy boyfriend:
and alá nerdy bird girl:
Isn't it perfect?? Imagine it with a patio glider (we've already started researching them. I'm going to drink a glass of wine SO hard on that porch), some hanging plants, and maybe a couple little topiaries on those small platforms.
Last night we took some measurements, dropped off most of our art and other framed things, sat on the porch for a bit just loving the neighborhood and the weather, and then had a lovely dinner at Mother's, which we can totally walk to. It was wonderful even despite my slowly subsiding migraine, and I can't wait to have all of our stuff officially moved in tomorrow!
I'll be taking before, during, and after photos, so be prepared to be inundated with cottage-y goodness.
So much love to you all; here's to a beautiful weekend! Extra lotsa love to the unparalleled Jane K., whose birthday is tomorrow! I'm constantly in awe of her genuine, thoughtful, and kind self, and I have so much gratitude for the world for making her a part of my life. Go, Jane, go!
