We believe we should all love where we live.

We’re a couple of homebodies, working to uncover the home our home wants to be. And we’re so happy to have you here.

All in one month (October) Chris applied for a job, interviewed for it and got it. Whoa. I know. Official start date being November 4th left us all of ONE DAY to find a place to live. It took 10 hours and lots of disappointments (now funny stories) to find our new place, but it was worth it. We are current residents of Pleasant Grove, UT, living in a basement apartment that we can see ourselves calling home for quite some time. I’ll give you the tour:

This is our living room. We have a sectional that we just couldn’t make work, so we had to separate it. Thanks to a few minds and good ideas we made this space work. COZY!

Our bathroom. I really love the deep sink. And the water pressure in the shower. Also, the place has SOFT water. Heavenly.
This is the second bedroom/office for now. Eventually, we’ll transform it into a room for our little baby girl, but for now it serves its purpose as Chris’s’ dressing room/office/art room.

Our bedroom. *sigh*
The kitchen. The BEST kitchen. It is so easy to keep this kitchen clean just because there is a space for everything. It’s so open and really fun to cook in.

Our dining area.

Now welcoming visitors. :)
