You guys are troopers.
If you follow me on social media you know that I haven’t actually disappeared forever, I’m just out living life! One of the many things I learned during my little blogging hiatus is to be okay with not being able to do it all.
Never fear, I can’t stay gone forever. I love you guys way too much! This community is something I’m not willing to lose! With that said, here’s a quick recap of what I’ve been up to.
Shortly after my last post, I began a crazy long road trip to New York with my grandma, mom and sister. We first drove to Tennessee to drop off my youngest sisters with my grandpa ( poor thing! ha! ) and pick up my grandma. Their home is haven for relaxation and inspiration. It was the perfect start to the trip!
After visiting with relatives in Tennessee for a few days, we made the long drive to NYC. And when I say “we”, I mean my mom. My sister and I watched the ENTIRE first season of Downton Abbey in the back seat. No complains here!
My first experience in New York was just as awesome as I imaged it would be. Amazing art museums, killer pizza, inspiring street style, crazy sore feet and a full memory card – NY deserves it’s own post. And it will get one!
Our road trip ended in South Carolina with a beach vacation with my dad’s side of the family. I absolutely loved spending time with them but of course, I was really looking forward to getting home to see my mister!
On top of my excitement to see Chris, I was super excited to get in our NEW HOUSE! Yeah, we bought a house while I was in NY and Chris moved us in while I was gone! You can expect a LOT of “new house” posts around here. ( I’ve been posting little sneak peeks on instagram! )
Since I’ve been home I’ve been getting everything set up in our new place, catching up on design projects and enjoying being biking distance from our good friends in this area of Jacksonville. Last week my girl Ashley came to visit and enjoy the neighborhood with me! We had a crazy list of things we wanted to do while she was here and by some miracle we actually completed all of them! Having her here was such a blessing. Come back soon, Ash! :)
So there you have it – an overview of what I’ve been up to! I’ll be back soon with more details of the New York trip, our house and design projects I’ve been working on. Thanks for sticking with me! You guys really are the best.
