decisions, decisions.

We thought we made a lot of choices the first time we built a house, but it turns out that was just scratching the surface. While progress continues on our future casa, we are knocking through all kind of choices — from the fun and visible (ooh, which light fixture to hang over the kitchen table?!) to the more mundane and overlooked (there are HOW many ways to texture a ceiling?!). I’m grateful that Page and I are both quick, firm, decision-makers…and in sync with our style (most of the time!). šŸ™‚

Here’s a peek at just a few of the recent choices made…

There are many more decisions to go — (up next, bath and plumbing fixtures!) and I’ll share as we have chunks of choices accomplished.

Happy weekend to all!

  • I love keeping up with your adventures Liz šŸ™‚ I have never commented on your blog before but I have read every post for almost two years! I just wanted to take the time to let you know that ‘Life in Yellow’ is the first blog I ever read and you inspired me to start my own blog which I did in August this year. So thanks for the inspiration, and keep the posts coming, I love seeing what you’re up to!

  • Rachel! Thanks so much for your sweet words. I just hopped over to YOUR blog to take a look! I’m adding to my blogroll! šŸ™‚ Admittedly things have been a bit slower lately for my own blog with no “home” set up to do some projects/decorating in, but hoping that all changes very soon, so stay tuned! šŸ™‚ Thanks for reading!

  • Oh wow, thank-you so much šŸ™‚
