GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCEMENT AT THE END!
Hey there friends! It’s been a while and I have sincerely missed reaching out to you all! Boy has it been a hectic month. Buying and selling a home with 3 little kids has been the hardest thing I have ever done in my life! We have now been at our new home just shy of a month. Things are finally starting to settle down (even though I still have a ton of boxes to unload ?).
And by settling down, I mean we have been getting used to living in the new home, not that things have actually slowed down one bit. The very first week of our move, our 2 kids started school. The good thing was that it was the same schools they would have attended had we stayed in our old house so that helped.
We try to enjoy our new neighborhood whenever possible, even though our time is extremely limited right now since we are still unpacking. Our neighborhood is really tranquil and we even have our own lake which is really nice.
Here’s a little view of the lake:
I cannot wait to see what it looks like with the changing of the season.
Our favorite spot in the new home is our keeping room and is where we spend half our time. Here we are eating on the floor – this was the first day we “officially” moved in. That fireplace and those beams are what sold us on the house.
I have some great plans for this place that I cannot wait to share (they do include painting the walls ?). EVERY wall will need to be painted so stay tuned for some great “before” and “afters”.
Oh and that light fixture is going to be gone soon.
In addition, I’m starting 2 business ventures (in addition to my stock photography site) and I cannot wait to share a little more once I get a little more settled in and am ready to give out more details.
And finally, as if I didn’t have enough on my plate, we baptized our son over Labor Day weekend and have had family over from other states and my homeland, Puerto Rico.
Below is the little guy with his 2 sisters (in white) and his 2 cousins from out of town. We have had a blast with our family these past few days which has been nice from all the changes going on in our lives. I know our kids are super grateful.
He thought he was the cutest little guy in that white suit. He wouldn’t take it off!
Also, I have teamed up with some great Home Decor accounts on Instagram to give you some great home design inspiration. Each week we ask people to share their decor under the #MyDarlingDecor hashtag, we vote for our favorite and feature the account and the image on all of our feeds! It’s been a lot of fun so definitely check it out here and look for the following image:
Lastly, I wanted to mention that I have teamed up with a great company to bring you an awesome giveaway! The winner will receive a $100 gift card! More details will be in your inbox before the end of the week so stay tuned so you can enter!
Please tell me I’m not the only one dealing with so many changes right now. Tell me what you have been up to below!
