SPS: The Opposite of Parks ...

... is very private space, the home. Last evening, Justin and I signed all the necessary million papers to come into possession of our first place! So, SPS goes out the window just for today and I celebrate our entrance into a long phase of packing, moving, redecorating, coordinating both major and minor repairs, and ultimately, settling in to a new rhythm of life.

The house we chose needs some serious TLC (and possibly even some tough love!). But its bones are great, for being 120 years in service, and we have high expectations for the place. Today begins a weekend of cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, then painting, painting, painting. If my posts are a bit more infrequent over the next two months or so, then just know I'm probably up to my eyeballs in paint/dust/sanding/packing/moving :)

This is a very attractive entry way; and a perfect picture for your post about embarking on the planning and hard work. Enjoy this time of getting your home just the way you want it and remember to take pictures!
