signs of settling...

We moved in our new rental a little over a month ago and we are finally getting settled. After a whirlwind month of travel we are finally getting things in their place. Now don't get me wrong... there are still a couple of boxes here and there... and we still have bare mattresses sitting on the floor in the guest bedroom... but we're getting there.

A few signs of settling have been spotted...

...the books are nestled in my favorite bookcase...


...the dinning room table is actually available for use...


...the "wall of fame" has found a new wall...


...the front porch is ready for morning coffee...


...the shoes have found a new spot to reside...


...the stamps are up and sorted...


...the inbox is full...

The best part of moving to a new place is how organized everything is. It's a great chance to declutter, organize, and clean all at the same time. Looks like you're off to a great start! Love the stamp collection (:

Glad you guys are getting settled...no better feeling than "home". Love to you!

Your organization astounds me...and slightly sickens me if I may be so honest. Looks great!

Yes, I can't wait to come over and have coffee out on your porch, sit in your darling dining room and even sleep on those mattresses on the floor upstairs!
