These photos were taken on the first of December. There is still inside unpacking, decorating, arranging to do but it is now their home! When I took these pictures, both of them were at work and there was a crockpot bubbling away and a newly made loaf of bread on the counter. We gave Matt a bread machine like ours for his birthday in November, and he has made maybe half a dozen loaves since they moved in. Margaret told a dear story of a bunch of guys who stopped by and they all stood around the island eating fresh bread. Don't you love it? We gave Margaret a red KitchenAid for Margaret's Day, and already a cake has been made. Ah, the lovely domestic life. It fills my heart with the deepest happiness.
What you see when you first walk through the front door
Happy Lexi and Piglet in their new home
Margaret and Matthew's closet off the bedroom - isn't it great?!
I love the built in shelves in the master bath, such a nice touch.
Upstairs - the loft
These are Margaret's childhood beds in the guest room
Her massage room
If you look really closely through the trees, you can see our house
With the camera zoom
Waiting for a summer day
The landscaping can't happen till spring, and wow is it ever muddy!
Isn't this a great welcome mat? Matt's brother gave it to them.
The joy of seeing their lights each evening is simply indescribable. We are so very happy for them, and for us!
