we bought a house!

and it’s a very very very fine house, with two cats looking out over the yard.

after decades of dreaming, years of saving, and months of looking we bought a mid century ranch in the east bay that needs the perfect amount of fixing up for our handy-but-still-employed-full-time selves.

the previous owners, who appear to be the most adorable people of all time, had lived there for 42 years, so while the layout and bones are phenomenal there are lots of cosmetic upgrades we can do to make it our own. (this week i learned i have very strong opinions on door knobs)

the best part? we back up to a regional park and have an amazing view!

victor and i are still deciding how much we are okay to sharing on the internet, i’m team ‘put it all out there‘ whereas he is playing for ‘let’s be safe’, so we’re taking it slow and not posting a full house tour yet, but rest assured i have plans for lots of diy posts!

love,
