This month has felt very chaotic while we are in the midst of selling the house we’ve called home for the last three years and the home where Elodie was born to move into a new home.  We have slowly picked out each piece of this new home and have many more finishing touches coming soon.  It is a very exciting, albeit a little bittersweet time in our lives.

This 30 minutes photography blog is a circle blog where I join other photographers from around the world in sharing a little moment of our ordinary lives.  Please be sure to see the link at the end to see what Janet Crouch did this month as well.

In our 30 minutes this month, we are taking a look at our new home in it’s somewhat raw form.  It’s not quite ready, although it will be soon.  New construction is an interesting process and this will give you a small peak into what we’ve been up to this month.

Here our daughter leads us to the front door, “Come on in!”

This is the kitchen, it’s almost completed.  The final touches will be done in the next few weeks and then we will be DIY-ing some additional upgrades as well. We plan to do an upgraded faucet and a complementary backsplash.  Open to ideas on colors that will look good, feel free to leave suggestions in the comments!

Have to play peek-a-boo with all these empty closets. “Is this where they keep the treats?!”

I think one of our favorite parts of this home and what we really led us to finalize our decision is these gorgeous sunsets over the lake.

Time to check out the backyard and that view.

Beautiful sunset light pours over the backyard every evening.

As new life is popping up everywhere here too.

Soon we will get to enjoy these gorgeous views daily and we are truly looking forward to it!


These photos were all taken with a Canon 5D Mark IV and Sigma 35 mm ART lens and lightly edited in Lightroom.
