Love like a sunset

So, I have some exciting news! A few weeks ago, we officially became homeowners!!! We've been hunting for the perfect place for around six months now, all the while madly saving away for the deposit.  When we finally walked into this place, it really was love at first sight. I mean, I actually had a physical reaction, I felt like I might cry - it was THE one.

Thankfully, the stars aligned and we were successful in adding this lovely beach house to our family. Check me out Mum, sooo grown up!  This is the first time I've gone through the whole house buying process, and although we are absolutely thrilled with the end result, I can honestly say I dont want to go through it again any.time.soon. It's ridiculous how much emotion and stress is involved.

We move in 9 days - and counting! I cant wait to get in and work out the personality of the place, the best part is having the freedom to make it our own. I'm an avid reader of home and interiors magazines and cant wait to get creative and decorate to our hearts content!

We're not going too far but we've been feeling a little nostalgic about the neighbourhood we've called home for the last few years. We've been pretty spoilt being so close to the beach and to stunning places like this for sunset.  Last night, Rich and I stayed well after the sun had disappeared on the horizon, soaking up the changing colour of the sky and its reflection on the sea.  Magical.  Although, we did leave it a little late - the walk back to the car in the near dark through the bushes wasnt ideal.  Especially with a husband who think's jokes about snakes and spiders at a time like that, are funny ;-)
