the little things

We’ve now spent ten nights in our new place, and it is starting to feel like home! There are many big things I could say about the house—what I love about it and what needs improvement. But right now, I’m only focusing on six little things that I am excited about.

1. We have a porch swing. Nolan likes to sit in it for about five seconds. Steve says it’s Amish-made, which makes it a neat addition.

2. A double sink. I can’t tell you how many times I wished for one when our dishes would pile up in the apartment, and there was no leftover space to wash hands or fill up glasses.

3. A window seat. The seat opens up for storage, and once we get some curtains and pillows, it will be a cozy reading spot.

4. Washer and dryer! This is the first time (since I lived with my mom in high school) that I’ve had a free washer and dryer in my building! This almost deserves its own post!

5. Though the small garden looked overgrown and has not been taken care of this summer, I found swiss chard, rhubarb, peppers, and tomatoes growing healthily!

6. I haven’t used it yet, but I love that there is a clothesline in the backyard for wet beach towels, rugs, and to share my delicates in front of the neighbors ;)


  1. what a fun space you have! and you've shared it so well with such pretty pictures!

  2. I love all these spaces in your new house! The window seat is amazing, can't wait to see how you fix it up :) I hope our next house has something similar... our cats would LOVE it and it would make such a cute reading spot!

  3. The swing on the porch will be great for rocking the new baby :) Super jealous of the window seat! I would love one!

  4. It really is the small things, isn't it?! I love the garden!

  5. These are all such awesome things! I'm SO jealous that you have a porch swing AND a window seat!


Thank you so much for your comments! I enjoy reading each one!
