You know in “Say Yes to the Dress” the bride rings a bell when she’s found her wedding gown? There should be something like that when you close on your first house!

Since I’ve been back from Seattle in the beginning of January, Taylor and I have made friends at church, I started ice skating lessons, and we have been continuing our search for a home. I have also made a blog schedule with the goal in mind that I won’t see my blog collecting dust anymore!
Upon entering our apartment, you will find a makeshift entryway station. There is a place for keys, notes, shoes, and bags huddled next to our door. To give this area a final touch, there is a decorative piece that says “home sweet home”.
