my home tour

We got married on June 10, 2011 and have been blissfully and disgustingly happy ever since! Chris found us this basement apartment before we got married and it's come a long way. Here are some before pictures. I want to see what you would picture it to look like before you actually see it!

This is the view from the front door. You can see Chris in the bathroom mirror.

Now i know that this has been a long time coming, but we recently found out we're moving so some pictures of our new place were a must! I must say, like i've disclaimed before i am NOT a photographer so i'm a little embarrassed of my picture taking skills, and not totally confident in my decorating either. So this is a HUGE deal for me, and i know that Chris would be mad if i didn't do this. So here are the pictures and sources to our cozy 900 sq. ft. basement apartment, that we will miss dearly!
