a new home.

We moved into our new place last week; a beautiful loft in downtown Springfield. I feel so blessed that we found such a great place to call home for (at least) the next year.

Beautiful hardwood floors throughout...
Exposed brick in the living area + both bedrooms...
A baby grand piano (the landlord requested to keep it here. yes, please!)...
Sliding barn doors to cover the big windows in the living area...
Great lighting...
Space, lots + lots of space...

So far, the only "negative" I've been able to find is the creaking + cracking this old building does, but that is, of course, to be expected. I'd be lying if I said it didn't make me jump occasionally, though!

I'd say we're all pretty happy here, including Tatum. She loves it. In our previous house, she had very little room to run around. Here, she is all over the place. There is really nowhere she can't go. We keep all doors shut and the kitchen baby proofed...the rest is hers. It seems like she's been having more fun since the move. And that's great, because a happy baby = happy parents.

Feeling so grateful for this fresh start!
