All Moved In | Galloway Ohio Photographer

Joyful Moments Photography Has Officially Moved To Galloway Ohio

Last Monday, February 27th, we signed our life away and officially moved into our new home in Galloway Ohio. The first session in the new studio was a newborn session and it took place on Thursday March 2nd followed by another newborn session on Saturday March 4th. We are so excited about this new phase in our life and we can’t wait to bring our little one home in September.

A lot is happening over at our construction site. The lights are all in installed and the electricity it turned on. They also painted the walls and added molding below the windows and around the floors. As you can see from the 2nd photo below, our cabinets were also installed. It is starting to feel even more like a house!

When we visited last Thursday they were starting on the siding but when we stopped by again on Sunday, we realized it was the wrong siding. No worries though, they are getting it all fixed up and taken care of. We are still on track to move in at the end of February.

House Progress | Dublin Ohio Photographer – Galloway Ohio Photographer

It’s been a little while since I posted a house update so I decided it was time. Plus, we got big news regarding the time frame. As you can see from the pictures, we now have drywall and a garage. The contractor says all the work happens really quickly at this point. We will have our final walk through of the house on February 22nd and we will be closing on February 27th. We are so excited to get moving!

Windows! | Dublin Ohio Photographer – Galloway Ohio Photographer

The pictures don’t look a whole lot different this week but a lot has been done. We now have windows and temporary construction doors (behind the plastic tarp). They also poured the concrete in our basement and garage. The plumping is almost done and they even installed the water heater and bathtubs and started the duct work. Before we know it, we will be having our pre-drywall meeting. Yay, so exciting!

Last Friday evening, we had the opportunity to drive over to our new home in Galloway, Ohio. When we drove up we saw something that actually looked like the beginnings of a house. They put up the exterior, as well as the interior walls. We were able to walk through our house and look at the layout of each room. It is starting to feel even more real now and we are so excited!

We have a Basement | Our New House | Dublin Ohio Photographer – Galloway Ohio Photographer

We visited our home on Thanksgiving day after eating a delicious lunch at my parents house in Grove City. Upon walking up to the large whole in the ground we were very excited to see that the basement walls had been poured. It is coming a long very quickly. The next phase is framing the walls.

That’s my mom & dad photo bombing on the other side of the house.

5 Things I Am Thankful For | Thanksgiving 2016 | Dublin Ohio Photographer

While I am thankful for many things this year, there are 5 specific things I want to mention (in no particular order).

1) My husband.

I have no idea what I would do or where I would be without this amazing man in my life. He has been there through everything and I know he always will be. I do not deserve all he has done and all he has been for me. I love you Jay!

2) My Family.

Family has always meant so much to me. Growing up, I always got so excited when my family got together. I love you all so much and I thank you for always supporting me.

3) My Church & Church Family

The church I currently attend is the church I have attended for my entire life. I met my husband there, I have so many amazing friends there, and I have people who love me like family and pray for me daily. I am so blessed!

4) Our new house.

I grew up living in more of a country setting where we had over an acre of land and a decent amount of privacy. We could only hear our neighbors if they were having a loud party. For the past 4.5 years I have lived in little apartments with no land and neighbors that I can hear cough and sneeze. What I am trying to say is, apartment living was never for me and I am so ready to have our own place.

5) Peanut Butter M&M’s.

So I know this is a little funny but it is also very true. I have no idea what I would do without them. Yummy!

They dug a hole | Our New House | Dublin Ohio Photographer – Galloway Ohio Photographer

They have now officially started building our house! It is starting to feel more real now and we are beyond excited. The basement has been dug and the footer has been poured. Before we know it, we will be moving in. From this point it really won’t be long. The project manager for our house has given us a date of February 28th, but he is pretty certain it will be ready even before then.

Here are some photos of the progress:
