It's really happening!!! We bought a house and we finally got the keys yesterday! I have a never ending list of all the things I want to do, buy and clean. all.the.things. So, in a way to make myself slow down and truly see the process for what it is, I'm coming here to share with you all my feelings on becoming a first time home owner:
I'm learning so many new things
I'm eating really unhealthy because who has the time
I'm a Pinterest queen
and I'm for reals thanking God for this blessing!!!
Buying a home has been something Kirby and I have talked about for years. For the longest time, we were unsure buying a home was even in our future. Not because it wasn't possible, but because we really didn't know if home ownership was for us. After having Addison + getting another taste of apartment living, we knew we wanted something more... Ours.
Our First Home
I truly never thought we would be able to find a home that ticked off so many boxes. Such a crazy feeling that hasn't really hit yet. Our first home is a beautiful 1914 farmhouse (in the city) and I'm dying to start adding our own little touch. It's spacious and has wood detailing throughout. The closet space is amazing for a 100+ year old home and the yard is so beautiful. We're beyond pumped on location and ummm, we have a front porch!
I'm so excited!!
Home ownership definitely brings me some anxiety because it's such a big decision. Overall, I'm happy we decided to buy and really proud we continued to search until we found something that fit. Of course, there are some compromises we had to make with this home, but I know that's true for the majority of home owners. I really just can't wait to start the decorating process! We're so close to living there and it's giving me all the feelings.
Current Favorite Home Decor Shop
I can't really say current because Wayfair has been a long time favorite. Every time I move or redecorate I'm reminded of my love for finding new home pieces and recharging our living space. I've been shopping on Wayfair for 5+ years and continue to find amazing pieces at such good prices. The second we bought our house I started checking out all the new goodies. Sometimes it's hard too stay on track because they offer so much. One way that helps me is creating idea boards! That way I can save products I love to check out later so I can just keep searching away.
We're almost into October and I have maybe 3 Fall decorations out at our current place. I've wanted to decorated, but didn't think it made sense to do it before moving. Since we have a big new porch, I wanted to make it feel welcoming to people coming to check out our new place. I'm not even thinking about decorating it until next Spring so I need to fill the space up with pumpkins & mums. I also found this pretty fall wreath that gives the perfect pop to our front door!
Stay in the loop!
