This post has been sitting, waiting to be published since May. FOUR MONTHS AGO!
SO, I thought it was about time I dusted off my computer and let all you patient lovelies in on ALL the things, so here it is.
I don't think things have ever been this quiet around the blog front. But here we are, a few weeks since my last post and yet I have thought daily about sitting down and connecting with you guys. Things may have been quiet here, but oh me-oh-my, things have been crazy, hectic, challenging, exhilarating, terrifying, messy and fulfilling in real life.
I imagined a hand full of different ways to tell you all what has been up around here, but I am not sure how long we have before a baby calls me away, someone needs a sandwich made, or a lovely client calls to book an appointment, so lets just get right down to it!
If you were here in real life, I would pour you a coffee (or a glass of wine depending on what time a day it was) ;)
I would tell you in my high pitched excited voice with my happy flapping bird arms that "WE ARE MOVING!"
You see, we have been working non stop at getting this house we love so much ready for the next family to love it so much. We have been painting trim, finishing our deck, digging out gardens, painting front doors, washing windows, bleaching blinds, painting ceilings, cleaning carpets, puttying nail holes, painting bedrooms, polishing floors, getting rid of furniture, hooking up sinks, decluttering, cleaning and organizing closets and cupboards that just need organized the next day and we officially haven't slept in weeks.
But as everybody knows who has ever sold a house, it is all worth it.
Last night I walked around our clean, lovingly built home and I felt elated for the people that will get this house and call it THEIR home.
This house has been a five year labor of love for our little family and now that every square inch has been touched we can without a shadow of a doubt say that we adore this place and this space.
If you are wondering why we would want to start a new chapter in a new property after this house has finally been finished, you are not alone. Everyone is wondering if the paint fumes have finally gone to our heads. The explanation is simply that our needs have changed and everything fell into place so beautifully that it was meant to be that we move on.
I know you will love the story and the back story and the two years ago back story on how we found our new adventure. I cant wait to share it all with you as soon as I get more then five minutes to sit down without a tool in my hand.
Things have been a little quiet over here on this blogging side but they are about to get really amazing if you stick around and love a good before and after.
The next few months are going to take DIY projects to a whole new level and I hope you will swing by and check out what we will be up to. Until then, please, go finish the painting project you have been putting off, I am TELLING you, it feels oh-so-good to sit in a room that is happily finished. ;)
