I'm Back!

Wow! So it has been almost a year since I last posted. I guess I took a sort of unintentional break. Some pretty big things have happened in 2013. In March we welcomed this handsome boy into our lives...

 
 
who now looks like this, and is 7 months old and crawling all over the place!
 
 
Being a mother of two kids is definitely harder than one, that being one of my reasons for not keeping up with this blog. :)
This crazy girl can't get enough of her little brother and will be 3 years old next month!
 
 
Another big thing that happened so far in 2013 was this:


Yep, we sold our house! We put it up for sale by owner at the beginning of June, and had two offers before we accepted the third offer at the end of July. A month later we were all moved out.

 
I cried... a lot. That house was like my first child and we put a lot of love into it, but after having our son we were feeling very cramped. When we bought the house we knew we wouldn't be there forever. It was a great starter house for us and we sure enjoyed every minute of the 5 years we spent there. We are moving onto more exciting things though. We are currently in a temporary living situation while we build our next home! Guardian Homes is building our next dream home and we couldn't be more excited! We spent a month perfecting the floor plan and deciding where to build, and we finally started the process and the foundation was poured last week! So, I hope to start blogging again about our building experience. There are so many decisions to make when building, and I have already made some pretty big ones, but as an interior designer I am loving being able to design my own house!

You have two adorable children, Amber! And with your family growing, you really need to move into a bigger place. I'm pleased to hear that things went smoothly with selling your old house. And just like you, I can't wait to see when your new house will be done, and your hands full with house projects. Best of luck!
