    • Laurie—this is awesome! I must admit that I do like the pink/salmon tile floor. 🙂

    I am so happy for you guys! Isn’t the ring supposed to come before the house? -totally kidding. (that is what my Dad said when we bought our house!!) Congrats! Your place looks amazing, and really big- especially for Portland. You guys look so happy!

    • That’s what all parents say. How do you know if you want to marry someone if you don’t test the waters first? I better start picking out a ring style… just in case. 😉
