So I know I said “until next weekend” in my last post, but today I completed the task of unpacking, storing, organizing and decorating everything which means I can now show you photos of our place!

Now since this was more of a documentation rather than a professional photo shoot, please don’t critique the quality – it’s not like these are going to be submitted to Martha Stewart Living magazine or anything. But I think you’ll see why we like it here. Also, the first few photos of the outside and views were taken this September on my scouting trip – I didn’t think it was necessary to take new photos of the same thing. *GASP* Me? Not taking more photos than necessary? Why, that’s unheard of! Oh, and let’s play a little game – find the pup. (Sadie didn’t want to miss out on the action.)

Welcome to our new home in Golden, CO!

And now for the interior:

So that’s our place! Hope you enjoyed the tour. Now you’ll just have to come see it in person! Oh, and you may have to expect at least one more post this week…Rhonda (Ryan’s older sister from CA) is coming into town tonight for Thanksgiving and I think we’re finally taking the Coors tour tomorrow afternoon – hooray!

Love,
Laura
