Two years ago this week, we moved into our little house. From the moment I laid eyes on this place, it was love at first sight. Though it is small, has no off street parking and could do with a makeover in certain rooms, it is cosy and comfortable and every bit our home. Originally, we had grand plans to extend and remodel and make fancy additions throughout. But the funny thing about grand plans, they're often also a little unrealistic or simply meant to be achieved over time or maybe not at all. I have actually heard that it's best to live in a house for a year before making any major alterations anyway.
A month after we moved in, I discovered I was pregnant with Felix. So the plans were placed on the back burner and have been on hold since. Precisely where they should be. Because these past two years have provided all the excitement and change we need. And they have travelled at the speed of light. However, I decided the old place did deserve a special something to spruce it up and this 2 year anniversary was a perfect excuse. I've been in search of a clever, yet stylish storage solution for the army of toys stationed in our living room. The other day I found it and I might just be head over heels in love with this place. Two gorgeous storage ottomans (which will also double as extra seating) on order, due for delivery in approximately 4 weeks. It has been so long since I purchased furniture of any description for our home, I'd forgotten how exciting it is. We may not have a few extra spacious rooms to loll around in, but a more modest splurge will do just nicely for now.
