New house, new beginnings..

We moved into our new house in December.  Just one town over, 7 miles away, but it feels like the other side of the world.  New neighbors, new town, new way of life really.  It's like starting over, but in a good way!!  And this was all totally on a whim, by the way.  We weren't even thinking about moving or selling the house that we put so much love and time and money into, we just stumbled onto a listing that we couldn't ignore.  I am not exaggerating when i say that as soon as we walked in we knew it was home.  I guess I shouldn't speak for my husband in that moment but as the saying goes, "happy wife, happy life!"  So we put our house on the market two days later and it was sold two days after that.  My head it still spinning.  We are settled in now but I have days where I wonder if we did the right thing.  We left some pretty wonderful neighbors, a newly renovated house, and the community that we loved for 4 years (although it felt like much longer), but then I remember all of the projects we still had left to do, and I start to forget all that.  I love me a good project, as you probably figured by now, but the things we had left to do included a new roof, boiler, insulation, just to name a few.  Nothing blog-worthy that's for sure!  

So instead of all that, we did the most unexpected thing of all; we bought new construction.  



I know.  I know.  What sort of projects could we possibly have here when it's brand new?  Trust me, though, we haven't been bored.  It's a blank slate.  There are a million decorating possibilities, two new kids rooms to have fun with and a whole basement to refinish (not sure if I even showed you final shots of the old one).  So although we won't be gutting and renovating this one like we did the last, we have a lot of work to do.  It was sad leaving such a special place (I will always love and miss our first home) but the extra space is really nice and I'm looking forward to all the amazing projects we can come up with here!!!

Looking forward to sharing this journey with you!!
