a tour

our new home! to say, I love it, would be a huge understatement! we've been here a little over a week and i'm still walking around saying, "i cant believe we live here!"
we were so blessed to find sun a nice home, in our budget, close to a bus stop and with an AMAZING landlord! we've learned that lesson the hard way...

we've moved a lot, this makes 7, but we are planning on being here for at least the next 4 years, and I'm so excited to stay put! there are many, many reasons i never want to leave! we have storage! I am seriously giddy about my organized and labeled totes stacked nicely under the stairs :) we have an attached garage (more storage!) and our own laundry! these were the reasons for our move, we had zero storage at our old place (unless you count under the beds, and our thule on the van, that's where our christmas tree was...haha!) and no laundry, we were happy to bid the laundromat goodbye after a year!
call me crazy for being totally unpacked after a week, but our parents, and my sisters came to help us move, and I put them to work! we really couldn't have done it without their help! and on that note, here's the finished product mom :)





















our home has been a labour of love for me, almost every piece of furniture was given to us second hand, from a garage sale, kijiji, value village or built by us (...mostly by brock) and hold a lot of memories! i love seeing all the pictures together in one place! even though arranging pictures on blogger stinks!

AH so cute Amy!! I am so jealous of all your storage! Like really jealous... ;) All of our furniture is second hand too and I/we have repainted and fixed almost all of it! It's true that it makes it a lot more special! You are so cute and I wished you lived closer!
