As I cleaned the house today I was having a sense of nostalgia as I thought about how much our home has changed since we first moved in. We've slowly been acquiring things and making it our own and in the past year and a half we've put our own spin on it. So I snapped a few quick pictures of the front part of our house because that's what has changed the most to share a bit of us.
Also, if you're moving to Germany this will be a great post to see what the average 2 bedroom apartment looks like and how much you can fit in it. I have seen floorplans that are slightly smaller and I have seen some that are larger by FAR so this is a fairly even middle ground.
This was moving day. My husband is assembling our bookshelf at the back of the room That bookshelf sat in our living room for nearly a year before we moved it to the office. It looked so lonely because it was the only piece of furniture that was pushed up against the back wall.
This is the only picture I could find of our living room after it had been put together and I know the reason why. This is all that was in our living room.... With exception to the litter box and book shelf that sat against the far wall. We didn't have any pictures or decorations up on the wall because we didn't own any. The only piece of sitting furniture we had was a two-seater couch which wasn't ideal for entertaining.
This is our home as of today. In this picture I'm standing in our dining room looking into our living room. As you can see, we updated our couch and got some big people furniture.
This is my favorite part of the entire house. Those pictures are the first that I've ever hung that are actually representations of my photography. The sofa table and the decor on it is all new or new-ish.
Our kitchen. Notice the new-ish (2001 model) glass top stove and the brand spanking new dishwasher. I even got to take of the protective plastic covering off it, it is so new! Definitely a fan of having new appliances.
Home sweet home.
