Alive and Well

I went missing from the face of this blog. Moving kicked our butts, we didn't have internet, oh and we are settling into our amazing new space. But I am back and here to assure you that we are alive and well. It's unbelievable how happy we are in the new house, the extra space has more than made up for the very close quarters of the apartment. The weather is warming and there is just a whole lot to do. These boxes don't unpack themselves and this move is completely different from our move to Kingston. There's a little guy running around now in need of 99% of our attention so settling in is harder than I imagined. He goes upstairs, I unpack in our room for five minutes. He wants to go back downstairs so I unpack for ten minutes in the kitchen, repeat. Add in some outside time and that's our day. No bother really, we have thirty years to get it right. Here are a few snapshots of my favorite spaces around this new place.

The staircase is so lovely and surrounded by some old school damask wallpaper. This little one has regained his confidence on stairs so up and down he goes. When we saw the house there was this perfect red rotary phone in the phone closet. So naturally we asked to keep it. 

The playroom gets the best sun all day long. I have coffee, he plays with trains and trucks, and the sun shines on in.

Our shower stall is a little odd. It has lots of handles but only two of them work (there are a few more not pictured). But my favorite thing is the one that controls the temperature. It reads "Hot, Warm, Cold, Shut." The shut part makes my morning.

I'll save a photo of the new studio for when it's a bit more photo-ready. So last but not least, the backyard. It comes equipped with a friendly neighbor cat that O squeals with joy over whenever he sees it. Happy Friday, friends! I've missed you!
