Our Home: Dining / Kitchen

Today, I'm sharing pictures of our dining / kitchen area. Our kitchen is tiny, and pretty basic, so I didn't really see a point in sharing photos of just the kitchen. Also, I don't really feel like it reflects our style at all. I would change it if I could, but since we're renting, I can't. Oh well. It gets the job done.

Anyway, these pictures are mostly of the dining area, with a small peek into the kitchen...

Lucy agreed to make a cameo appearance.

Nothing fancy, but we enjoy cooking and eating in here. 

Next up, the bedrooms!

Our Home: Living Room

Sorry it has taken me so long to post pictures of our home here in Denver. My only excuse is that I have an almost-seventeen-month-old. You can see "before" pictures of our house here.

Today, I will be sharing photos of the living room. I feel like it's important to note that these photos are not staged. Sometimes, when I look at homes in magazines or blogs, especially family homes, I wonder if anyone actually lives there because everything looks so perfect and staged. Well, let me assure you, we live here. I left the smelly, old dog beds and the toy baskets and everything else that is ordinarily here. My style tends towards minimalism, so there isn't really a lot of clutter, but I also readily admit that my house isn't always this neat. Which I'm sure you know. OK, enough about that.

Our living room...

Painting the brick white was the first order of business when we moved into this house. It used to be a disgusting bloody red. It's amazing what a can of white paint can do.

I am still in love with the ceilings in this place. 

And the light.

That's our living room where we do most of our living. Tomorrow I'll share our kitchen / dining room. Or you could just come visit us and see it in person :)

Dancing Queen

Lucy was in a very dance-y mood tonight...

She clearly has a signature move, and it works for her.

Sleepy Head

Sorry for the lack of posts. We have been adjusting to life with M back in school. I feel like things are finally starting to slow down, and we are on more of a schedule, which is helpful for me.

This morning, Lucy and I walked to the park, where she got to play with some of the other kids and explore her new walking abilities. She was so worn out afterwards that she didn't quite make it to her nap. She started to doze off while eating lunch...

The sign of a really fun morning!
