Finally moving in!!!

I am finally moving in with my boyfriend of almost 6 years!!!.  My daughter finally graduated from high school and started college this fall.  I have been in a long distance relationship and I am the one moving out.  Sad, but excited at the same time.  My boyfriend has been in his house for years and when I move in I want to be able to make his house my own too, like maybe some redecorating but not much maybe re-paint a room be able to put up pictures etc.   I don't want to feel like a visitor, I want it to feel homey to me too.  Any suggestions on what to tell him?  I know he will say whatever I want to do I can, I just don't want to push it.  I don't want to make it all girly but just want to feel at home

Congratulations! Maybe you could start with the bedroom since it will be a space that is really just for the two of you. Then from there you could possibly start to put your touches on other rooms.

Thank you!!! It feels like it took forever, but i wanted to make sure my baby girl got settled and is ok before i leave.  That is most important.  That is a very good idea then it will feel like he is helping me adjust to my new home too!

COngratualtions, I am happy for you (and a whole lot jealous!!!) Why don;t you start by remodeling some rooms together, even if its minor, like painting?
