"This is the blessed life-- not anxious to see far down the road nor overly concerned about the next step, not eager to choose the path nor weighted down with the heavy responsibilities of the future, but quietly following the Shepherd one step at a time."

Welcome to The B & B!
In September, I was blessed to move in with an amazing roommate & friend, Rebekah! We have been having so much fun together and I can't believe how perfectly the whole situation has worked out. I met Rebekah at church, but recognized her from UMC, where she is also a nurse. Thankfully, we are quite a bit alike and so moving in together was perfect! I wanted to show all of you who are not in town, a little virtual tour of my new house. It has been such a blessing to see how our little house just fell into place... all of our furniture and decor match each other's perfectly, all we had to buy was a few pillows and a rug!
We have named our little house "The B&B", mostly because we want people to feel welcome and comfortable here, and also because its like a quaint little cottage... hence "The B&B". With that said.....
Welcome to The B&B!
This picture is of our front door and a wreath we made for fall!
First stop is the entryway....
And then on to the living room/dining room, which looks out through a wall of windows to the arizona room (screened in porch) and patio.
The screened in porch is SO nice this time of year... we eat out there a lot, and its also a really nice place to read and journal. I love having outdoor space!!
The patio is also very nice and the best part is the spiral staircase on the left that leads up to the roof.... for a little rooftop terrace!
The view from the top!
Here is the dining room... where we have bible study every wednesday afternoon!
Next up is our kitchen, where Rebekah and I cook all the time! Rebekah is turning me into quite the little cook! We can't get enough olive oil, balsalmic vinegar, salt, and mozzarella (these are the habits I brought back from Italy :) !
Now on to Rebekah's room... so cute with all the ruffles and flowers! We really do have similar taste!
Finally, my room! I love it so much, it is such a relaxing little haven! I am so excited to have a queen bed after 5 years of a lil twin! As a side note, the two nightstands, my daddy and I refurnished together (ok...he did most of it). Also the hope chest at the foot of my bed is extra special because I bought it for $25 at a garage sale and my dad completely redid it and now its absolutely beautiful!
Well, thats about it! Of course I am so thankful for such a cute house, but the best part of this new living arrangement is Rebekah and the fellowship we have together as roommates! Please come by anytime, our door is always open!
