Cook Cottage: Welcome Home!

Jon and I are so excited to share that we are new homeowners! In late May we signed all the documents, passed all the tests, and were handed the keys to our very own little Florida home! We've been busy and have so much to share, but this gives you a little idea of what we're working with.

The very first project was setting up a mailbox! Archie came with us (his first trip to Home Depot... and it went well!!) and helped pick out the cedar post and bronze mailbox... perfect first project!

It has been such a fabulous journey so far - and for every one thing we cross of the list of To-Dos we add about three more! 

My dad helped get our fence up during a Father's day weekend visit... Archie is so thankful to be able to run around as much as he wants to! Next up...landscaping!

New blinds! So much more insulation.

We are so thankful to our families, friends, and all of the staff at Home Depot that have helped us and offered support and suggestions thus far. We've gotten a few more projects done since i've taken photos but there's also a few rubbermaids and tote bags to unpack still! So, stay tuned on our journey here that is just beginning!
