Home is where the heart is, right? Tell that to someone who has relied on the kindness of their sister and her family for almost six months and see what they say. They’d probably say, despite missing your sister, your BFF and your adorable nephew desperately, that having your space is awesome. Being settled in is the best. And I’m happy to report that it’s pretty much all systems go here.
Sure there are boxes yet to be unpacked.
Rooms with no furniture to speak of.
My office is still half filled with items we plan to garage sale.
But we are here. The painter is not. It’s our place, and we are settling in just fine. We curl up on the couch, lie in bed at night and shower in our house. We complain about the stairs, and the glass cook-top and laugh because finally, we have the opportunity to because they are ours. This is our fifth house together. The second renovation.
This is our fifth house together. The second renovation. And the 6th time my name has appeared on the title of a property. I feel lucky. There is a chance some in my generation won’t know the satisfaction of owing a bank shitloads of money for your home. But I do, we do, and I couldn’t be happier to do it.
I’m sure there’s more to say on that topic, isn’t there always especially at the moment, but I’m going to leave it there. Let you know that we are doing ok. That we are getting there. That the new couch was worth the fifty-billion years wait to get. Stay tuned, there will be more updates as each of the room are finished off. I mean, I promised to bore you to tears. I plan on honoring that.

Hi! I’m Melissa Walker Horn. Around here, they call me Suger. I’m the Chief Blogger and doer of all the things here at Suger Coat It.

I make stuff for the internet over at Chalkboard Digital. You know, living the sweet life.
I’m so excited for you – there is nothing like the contentment of being in your own place, on your own terms and in your own little zone. I’m looking forward to seeing all your room reveals as you go along!
Thank you. That little hiatus of boarding and then renting was difficult, we are certainly creatures of habits, the Mr and I. It’s been slow going on the renovations/changes front in the last couple of years, but we have some big plans. That’s for sure!
I’m sure with the new furnitures your place will be amazing!!
Thank you Camilla! We are getting there. x
Playing along at home, Melissa! Going to be moving in a few months and I’m panicking already. So much to do.
You make it look both easy and fun!!
Love the sofa.
Ahh moving, eeeew, it’s the worst! Good luck to you. Thanks so much for playing along at home. x
Umm you can’t just leave it at that!!
Where is the picture of the couch that you’ve waited [and so we too have waited! 😉 ] so long for?!
Can’t wait to see what plans you have for the place! x
I know, I KNOW! Sorry lady, the rest of my furniture arrives in the next couple of weeks. I’ll do more of an update then. I also need to swap out my camera lens and for now, it’s in storage.
Lol you know I only jest BUT I am looking forward to “The Tour”, when you’re completely settled in x
I’m looking forward to have A TOUR to give. Haha. Believe me. Haha.
