After three months of work, a lot more money than we planned to spend, and far too much stress [yes, our original contractor walked off the job, unannounced!], my boyfriend and I officially have lived in our first house for one week - exactly! We are still digging through boxes to find our necessities, but the place is becoming more and more homey as the days [and even moments] pass. We've made so many changes to all parts of the house, but the kitchen was our major project. We stripped it down to nothing, and created a space that we love. Although it looks nothing like our inspiration, it is absolutely our happy place.
