I have been bursting at the seams with such exciting news but I wanted to wait and share until it was official.
We are moving!
Jordan and I have lived in our house in Hyde Park for the last 4+ years and have really loved it. We’ve had great memories in this house. We were newly married starting our lives in this house, brought both of our babies home to this house, had countless family dinners, events to celebrate friends, and became a family of 4 in this house. I have so many memories of my Dad in this house.
We’ve also had some not great memories here. I started typing out and explaining some of those memories but honestly, typing them out just doesn’t even do them justice. I found out about Bea’s liver disease in this house. The day I lost my Dad I cried myself to sleep in this house. I’ve missed him in this house. I miss him in this house.
This house is full of so much. So much love, so many memories, and so much of our family history (even though we’ve only live there for 4+ years). I feel so tied to this home so needless to say, it was a difficult decision when we decided to move.
We’ve been looking for over a year. Originally, we were looking for a house with a pool, yard, and enough space to live as the girls get older. I wasn’t going to move for any ‘ol house and really always admired homes that were different – ones that look like they were loved and cherished by their owners.
I’m so excited that we found our perfect house.
We closed last week on a barn that was built in the late 1800’s and was converted into a home in the early 1900’s. It has a great outdoor space and my favorite feature? The different floors throughout the home – pebble, tile, herringbone wood, etc. The home just has so much character and we are excited to make it our own.
So, some of you have followed along since the beginning. You’ve seen us get married, start our family, move mountains for Bea, happily welcome Miss Poppy, and now move into our new/old home. You’ll notice my posts will gear more towards home decor/decorating and furnishings as I start the process of turning our barn into our home.
I hope you continue to follow along 🙂
