Big News! We’re Moving!

Y’all!  I cannot even believe I’m typing these words!  This has all happened so fast, but it’s true, we.are.moving!

And, we’re moving . . . WEDNESDAY!

Let me back up and start from the beginning!  A month ago, I wouldn’t have dreamed we’d be moving.  We have lived in our home for about 12 years and were quite content there.

I’ve been looking around casually for the last few years, but never saw anything that felt right or that I liked better than our current house.

In those searches, I came across a builder whose work I LOVED, and I started following them on Instagram.  They’re a darling husband and wife team and everything they do is done with such thoughtfulness, style, and attention to detail.

But, they don’t do very many projects, and the ones they do go fast.  So, I just admired their work from afar.  I really wasn’t even looking to move, but I was also open to the possibility should something pop up.

One Saturday morning I was scrolling Instagram, and the builders posted that one of their homes was on the market.  #noway!!!!

I immediately called my friend Tarah, who also happens to be a Houston realtor and went to see the house that day.

As soon as we drove up, I was smitten.  And when we walked inside, it felt like home. ♥

Honey We're Home New House

I could totally see us living there and being so happy.

The living room opens right up to the backyard with big sliding glass doors.  And it’s close to outdoor parks and nature that would help us get outdoors more.

It’s convenient to everything my kids do and is about the same size as our current house, but with more functional, better use of space.  And it’s almost new and so very pretty inside!

I’m sure you’re curious if Brian and I are moving in together, and the short  answer is no, not yet at least;)  But, we have talked about it and down the road, we could easily live there together with plenty of room for everyone.

I put an offer on the house the day after I first saw it.  It’s been hard to hold something so big inside, but I wanted to make 100% certain it was a done deal before I said anything.

And I needed a minute to absorb everything and take it all in.  I was in shock for about a week and every time we visited the house, I honestly couldn’t believe this was happening.

The shock is slowly fading into a peaceful excitement.

It’s really happening!

I feel so grateful.  It’s a fresh start, a true blessing after the ups and downs we’ve been through.

It’s been a crazy few weeks, lots of paperwork, phone calls, inspections, reports, checklists, documents, not to mention, preparing to sell my own house!

It’s serendipitous how all the changes I’ve made to my house over the last three years has actually prepared it for new owners!

The guest room and dining rooms are completely redecorated, I replaced the dilapidated fence and the 12 year old appliances, upgraded the mudroom, switched out several light fixtures, lime washed the stone on the house and painted the siding.

I didn’t realize at the time how those changes would prepare our home to be put on the market.  I didn’t even know when I did my mudroom that I’d be moving the next month!  Isn’t it crazy how things happen?!

A wonderful family made an offer on my home the first day it was shown and I feel really happy thinking about them making it their own.

God has been so faithful every step of the way.  When I feel unworthy to be in such a good place or worried, waiting for the other shoe to drop, He gives me that gentle peace inside.  I don’t feel anxious or unusually stressed.

I feel . . .  ready.

I’m ready to move, ready to live in a new space with my family, and ready to share this next chapter in our lives with you!

Thank you so very much for sticking with me through these past several years.  It’s been a journey and we’re about to embark on a new chapter together!
