Welcome to our new, temporary home for the next year in Toledo, Ohio!
For our first year in Ohio, we will be living with my in-laws. Our boxes are all unpacked and we are settling into our new routine in Ohio. We want to take our time finding the right neighborhood for us to move into as a family to consider location, school district, etc. But for now, we are living in a fantastic neighborhood and have enjoyed meeting our new neighbors. Check out our temporary, Ohio digs!
Tour of our Home
Isn’t their Cape Cod style home beautiful?
Our favorite feature of the home is the back porch. It provides the perfect amount of shade and the dual ceiling fans give a great breeze to hang out there all day!
There is space for lounging and a nice big table for all of our summertime meals. The kids love these lounge chairs.
Quick Porch Flashback
When Chris and I got engaged, my in-laws renovated the porch and added a roof to be able to host our rehearsal dinner outside in the rain or shine. 🙂
Our two pups spent their first summer on this porch with their 8 other pup siblings. Lucy is the darker yellow lab to the left and Lizzie is the black lab on the right. They were seriously the cutest little things. Who doesn’t love a good puppy pic?
Master Bedroom Updates
The master bedroom was previously the boys bedroom (Jonny and Tim) and had sports themed wallpaper that needed to be removed. We all pitched in to get the wallpaper down when we visited last March. Of course Thomas wanted in on the action and loved scraping the walls and pulling down the wallpaper.
For the master bedroom, we chose Grey Owl by Benjamin Moore and it really looks fantastic.
Master Bedroom Before
Before, the room was in great condition, but we wanted to freshen it up with some paint.

Master Bedroom After
Evelyn’s Bedroom Before
Evie is sharing her bedroom with her Godmother, Katie. Setting up Evie’s room was a fun challenge utilizing Katie’s furniture and blending their styles together. Katie painted her walls a green and blue color a few years back and we decided to keep it as is. The colors matched really well with Evie’s bedding and I think the room turned out very sweet.
Check out Evie’s nursery in our Denver home.
Evelyn’s Bedroom After
The only furniture we added to the room was the crib.
Thomas’ Bedroom Before
This was Chris’ childhood bedroom it really doesn’t look that different! The walls are Owl Grey and Hale Navy.
Thomas’ Bedroom After
Thomas LOVES the desk in his room and calls it his office. At night, he stays up to draw and cut out photos at his desk.
We utilized some decor left over from Chris’ childhood bedroom which was fun to see passed down from father to son. The Fenway Park snow globe and baseball lamp are all throwbacks from Chris’s childhood!
We are excited for the summer in Ohio and reacquainting ourselves with the city. I hope you enjoyed the tour of our temporary Ohio home!
