A work in progress........

I'm thrilled so share our new home. I know we have a lot to finish up, but I love how it is coming along so far.

The first picture is of my new scrapping-studio.
I've kind of kept it simple for the moment, as I have a lot of closet space in this room, so my ugly plastic storage carts are fitting perfectly in there, not messing with the "chi" of my room...lol.

As you can see here, I've gone with a mocha colored paint, paired with light pink and green.

So far, this space has been very inspiring and I'm really enjoying adding items to my shelves and getting everything just right :-)

I'm also sharing a pic of our new living and kitchen area. I love how the kitchen is open to the great room providing a GREAT entertaining space. {Yes, that's Steve in the pic holding his glass of wine. }

He is so sweet and when I arrived home from work tonight he had dinner on the grill outside, along with 2 glasses of wine on the bar area just waiting for me to come and relax with.
I really love the deck area off the dining room, the hickory hardwood flooring and curvy lines.
In the last 8 years we've lived in a loft type home where the outside was not accessable.
I love being able to open the slider and sit outside enjoying the fresh air. Ahhhh.... Or should I say....to drink the air....lol.

We plan on adding some nice patio furnature and a wall fountain for ambiance :-) Gotta have good ambiance...right?!?

I'm so happy to finally be in a place that I feel is home.

Home for good.

We are even talking more about starting our family here since we have the extra room and the space is so perfect.
I know both of our families would agree that it's time....lol.
We've been married this year 8 years. Little ones are definitely next in our lives. Now that I feel I have a home that I'm firmly planted in.......I can actually think about that. Scary as it is, I cannot wait to become a mommy.

Have a wonderful week and I'll be back to post some projects I'm working on.
