Hard to believe in a few short weeks, Kyle & I will be homeowners!! We are in the process of buying, building, decorating, and living in our first home! We are building through Ryan Homes, and so far have nothing but rave reviews to share – the whole process is going so smoothly (fingers crossed that continues through closing!). It’s been an exciting and stressful time, and while it’s always nice to choose your finishes it can be very overwhelming at the same time.
With Pinterest (follow my board on Decorating, Organization, & Office Inspiration for a quick peek into my style), blogs (like this living room, this kitchen, or this closet), and magazines, it’s easy to get caught up in searching for the best home decor, that realistically will never make into into our first home. BUT, we are undeterred and know this home will be perfect for us! We can’t wait to be done with apartment living and start to feel more settled in Pennsylvania.
Our new house will not be far from our current apartment, and we are lucky that one of my friends lives in the same neighborhood! Phoenixville is an “up & coming” city in the Philadelphia area with tons of new restaurants, bars & shops all a quick walk from our house (for my Indy friends, think of like an up & coming Broad Ripple!).
For now, I’m still dreaming of the furniture, art pieces, rugs, and knick knacks we still need to get. Going from the limited furniture we have now, to a decent sized first home is expensive on so many fronts! I’m excited to blog along the way with my inspiration boards & room renovations as we move in April!
While we don’t OFFICIALLY own the home, we feel good about where we’re at in the process & excited to share the news with all our friends. Fingers crossed we don’t run into any issues anytime soon!
