1 Year On.. A Mini House Tour

by - Friday, September 01, 2017

As I sit writing this blog post, 6 months after writing my Flying The Nest | 6 Months On post I'm really struggling to come to terms with the fact that 12 months ago, S and I officially moved in together.

It is honestly so crazy to think that 12 months ago I moved out of my family home and became an "adult", what a year it has been!

It's tested my anxiety in more ways than I could've possibly prepared myself for but, there have been a lot more laughs than there have been tears. 

The house may not be at the stage I had hoped it would be 12 months on from moving in. My office is nowhere near finished, there is still a tonne of boxes filled with S' belongings taking up half of the room. S' "man-cave" still has a few tweaks that need to be made. Our bedroom hasn't even been touched since moving in and we're currently in the middle of a garden makeover post coming soon but despite the chaos, it feels like home and I wanted to share with you guys just a tiny snippet of our beloved home.

The Living Room

The Kitchen

The En-suite

The Bathroom

I do, regret more than I did 6 months ago, not reaching for my camera and vlogging our moving process. House viewings, even though we only viewed one other house. The stresses, and frustrations! I think it would have been awesome to have been able to look back at that time in my life. 

And yes, there is still so much more we need to do. Find places for even more boxes filled with S' belongings. Make tiny tweaks to make each room "perfect" but for now, it has fast become my safe place. Having been out of the country for the best of part May, I had my concerns of returning to our little bubble and it not feeling like home. I needn't have worried though and despite recent months becoming an anxiety-filled battle and adult life almost pushing me to the limit, I've loved every second of the last 12 months.

    1. Thank you so much Franzi, your sweet comment is so appreciated. A little secret the set of drawers in our en-suite is from B&M ;) Good to know we're not the only ones still tackling boxes or making tweaks, that definitely feels me with a little relief haha x
