The Mark Family Homestead

the new digs

the new digs

We’re home! Don and I bought our first house. We actually closed on the 30th of April but we’ve been so busy unpacking and settling in that we haven’t paused to tell y’all about it! I haven’t really taken any interior photos yet. I’ll do that as soon as possible (or as soon as we paint and all of that good stuff).

The neighbors we’ve met are super friendly and Owen is thoroughly enjoying the yard. This past Memorial Day I planted an herb garden in the sunniest spot in our backyard. Don and I are working out plans for planting vegetables in with our front yard landscaping next spring (the front yard is the only other spot that gets enough sun throughout the day).

We couldn’t be happier with our decision and the area we moved to. Homeownership is the best feeling. I don’t know how to put it into words!

Here's the backyard.

The screened in porch off the kitchen has been our dinning room all month.

The porch swing was my Mother's Day present!
