We moved. See our latest house here.

You can also see us at Apartment Therapy (here and here), The Zhush, Live The Home Life, Brooklyn Limestone, Digs Magazine, Bathtastic and elsewhere.
Pictures of each room in one place? Is this some sort of sick joke?
Nope, you're not dreaming.
Don't expect me to do this for all of the places, though, okay? There are still properties that I haven't even mentioned, let alone shared them in posts that include photographs of more than one room at a time. But I will. At some point. Because, honestly, my story wouldn't be complete without including that hideous one bedroom that came to me with a light dusting of rabbit poop and scratchy mauve carpets. And how could you live if I didn't share those details?
In due time.
For now, let's just start with our current pad, shall we?
This is The Historic House By The Water, built in 1929 and located in the San Marco neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida. It's where Andrew and I currently live and work. Here's a picture of him working.
Not really. His job doesn't involve imitating a butterfly while sweating profusely.
You know, usually.
So why did we move to Jacksonville from Fort Lauderdale?
Well, not long after we fell in love his company offered us the opportunity to relocate.
So two weeks before we got married we began shopping for North Florida real estate. Yes, that's right. TWO WEEKS before tying the knot. There was a lot of Advil involved.
Luckily, we found a place within a few months. We bought it because of this.
I'd love to tell you that the inside was just as beautiful. But. Well. It wasn't exactly worthy of storing our chocolate milk.
But we're working on it.
So far we've managed to tackle a few spaces. See for yourself.
The Master Bedroom
The Living Area
The Guest Bedroom
So that's what we've been up to. Oh, and this.
Check back soon for more.
