Today is an exciting day: it marks the one-year anniversary that I became a homeowner!
I vividly remember trekking to Midtown from DUMBO, the anxious trip to the bank, that crazy feeling of writing the biggest check of my life. Heading to the closing office, meeting the daughter of the former owners and talking with her attorney about how the ol’ neighborhood used to be. Signing a million documents. Sipping an iced coffee to calm my nerves. Hugging my attorney after it was all over because she was amazing and patient and helped answer all my questions through the process. And finally getting those keys!
Looking back, it’s so surreal. I still pinch myself sometimes when I walk in the front door. I feel so blessed to have found a house that I truly love, with beautiful bones and a lovely family history. And I am so thankful for all the amazing renovation and design bloggers that have provided so much inspiration and confidence through my most wide-eyed and panicky moments. The internet totally, totally rules.
So today, I wanted to share a few of my recent Instagram photos of day-to-day life at the house, and raise this year’s iced coffee to toast the best (and scariest) year of my life… so far!
