In Bloom

(Our house this morning after our morning jog)

It is officially spring in the Low Country, and we love watching our plants bloom for the first time. From our limelight hydrangea to our grey beard, everything is coming to life. Emerson chased a bunny through our yard this morning, and Seaweed, the alligator, is becoming more active as our wildlife and plant life awaken for spring. It is so magical to watch.

I just got some amazing vintage adirondack chairs that will soon surround a fire pit in our backyard. (Stay tuned for post with photos upon completion).  

We love our new house and are even talking about finishing off our attic space. 

Happy Spring!!

It's Complete!

This post is a little delayed.  :)

It has been a long time coming, and the house is complete!  We moved in right before Thanksgiving and had a huge punch list including finishing the screened-in porch so we didn't want to post pictures until it was completely finished.  Then it was a mater of getting the house camera ready with a very active toddler.  Here are some pictures from Travis' dad's visit last weekend to give you a small peak into our house.  We absolutely love it!  It is perfect for us!

We love having a large backyard for Emerson to run around and play.  Behind our property are miles and miles of nature preserve and a pond housing our new pet alligator, who Emerson so lovingly named "Seaweed".

We love the built-in cabinets in our living room:
