i know i have had a long absence from blogland, but i assure you, it was for a very good reason. i have been moving myself and all my earthly possessions across the country to north carolina. the move was super stressful and we ended up sleeping at a friends for a whole week until we could move into our house. then there was some last minute paperwork and a few snags that held things up, so that was chaotic (i cried 4 times), but now i am here and safe and it is 75 degrees and sunny, and wow, that just really makes everything better.
we have already started a million house-related projects (and even finished a few), including painting the kitchen, art room, front door, and master closet, plus hanging art, fixing rain gutters, and assembling furniture and moving it all around. it is really coming together... i am tired but happy. here are a few photos in it's current state.
