It has been such a long time since I have been active on the blog and social media. The last few months have seen some huge changes for our family and there is so much to update you on.
I know I promised to post about the kitchen makeover, and it’s still on my to-do list. It’s finally finished and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Those posts will be coming very soon. PROMISE!
The reason things have been so quiet here lately is because we have been super busy making a move from Texas to Tennessee! We were such proud Texans and loved everything that it stood for but we needed a change of pace and scenery. I have lived in TN when I was younger and missed it so much since the day I left.
We came up for a visit during the summer and Adam fell head over heels for this beautiful state. We were already talking about the possibility of making a move, but that visit was the tipping point and we decided to take a leap of faith.
We put our house up for sale a couple weeks after our trip and things just snowballed from there. The whole process happened so much faster than we anticipated. There were a few stressful weeks for sure (hello hurricane Harvey!), but everything just fell into place and moved along rather smoothly.
We are sad to leave our first home and all of the memories we made there but we are so excited for what the future holds! We’ve been here in TN for a few weeks now and it has been such a breath of fresh air. We can’t get enough of the cooler temperatures and gorgeous views!
For the next year we will be renting an apartment while we scout out the area and decide where to put roots down. I have to tell you it will be a nice break from all of the upkeep a house requires.
Obviously we won’t be able to do any renovations or permanent changes to our apartment, but it will be fun to work on smaller DIYs and decor related posts for a little bit. I know a lot of you are renters as well, so I’m excited to be shifting my blog focus to how I make our rental space feel like home.
So, what do you think? Are any of you in the same position right now after a major move? I’d love to hear about what kinds of posts would be helpful to you. Let me know in the comments!
