I have a new respect for people who have to move fairly often. I honestly don't know how they do it. Having your lives turned upside down can be so very unsettling. Throw kids into the mix, and things get a whole lot more complicated. :) I think part of it is my own fault, we have lived our life fairly routine. For the kids, nap time, snack time and bed time are almost always right on time. I wish I was a little more spontaneous, if I have the choice though... I'm going to plan as much as I can... and then have a back up plan. ;)
After typing up somewhat of a long winded post, I decided you guys deserved the short version... and here it is!
Basically, moving and trying to purchase a
house is expensive! Between appraisals, home inspections, water samples,
switching cell phone carriers, u-haul trucks, storage units... it is
adding up QUICK! So I've decided to launch a 50% off sale
in my digital shop through the rest of this month. Hoping to drum up
some extra sales, and save you guys some money in the process! :)
Anyhow, just use code EXPENSE it expires 12/1
I am incredibly grateful that we are in a position to purchase another house. I'm also thankful that our house sold quickly... and to the first people who looked at it. I didnt need to worry about a bunch of showings... because that is never fun... especially with kids. :)
It has been a little stressful these past few months, but we have an estimated closing date on our new place for the 19th of December. Fingers crossed we can make that date! The cabin itself isnt real big. I feel like we sacrificied a little on space, but gained so much more. When you are out there on the property it just feels so quiet and peaceful. We can always do an addition at a later time... but the location is key for us.
A few weeks ago I realized that I didnt have a cabin included in the Wherever We Are Together Series... so I created this little guy. I havent wanted to show a picture of the cabin we're buying... because it seemed too premature... but this guy looks quite a bit like our soon to be new place! I meant to post him on the blog... but kept forgetting. :) He is available in the shop right here.
I have a board over on Pinterest filled with ideas for the cabin. We're leaning towards an industrial rustic cabin style. Warm and cozy with lots of industrial pieces thrown in for good measure. :)
What do you think? I cannot wait to show you guys more pictures!! I've been so excited to share my decorating plans... Jaydon can only handle so much. ;)
