We are back from vacation and back at work on the new house. The laminate is done and our carpet is going in next week! I also think I am close to being done painting - hallelujah! So exciting. After 4 weeks of working away, the house is finally starting to feel like it's ours. Good thing since our furniture is moving in on Saturday....
Here's a little sneak peek of the family room. We took the saw to those Ikea Expedit shelves on the weekend and are working on turning them into benches.
Since this feels like a time of change and new beginnings (and since fall is in the air), after a year and a half of publishing A Swell Place to Dwell, I am officially launching my very first reader survey. It has been interesting to watch the statistics on this blog and I am always so surprised to see what people respond to. Posts that I think are going to be popular, are often duds and other posts get tons of comments when I don't expect it.
I'll be honest, I love a post that generates discussion through the comments. Comments make me feel that I am not alone once I hit that 'publish' button, and they also allow me to interact with you - my readers, who I love to no end. But, I also know that there are many of you who read and don't comment, and that's fine too. This is the chance for everyone's voices to be heard.
So, I'd really, really, really appreciate it if you'd take a few minutes to answer my very official (as in I created it on my own using a free website.....) survey. It will let me know what I am doing right and what might need some improvement. All answers are completely anonymous, so please don't be afraid to speak your mind. I genuinely want your 100% honest opinions.

I'll be back later this week with a little glimpse into our kitchen and some new/old lights.
