Yes yes, I am still here! Are you shocked?!
Y’all, we’ve had a LOT going on over the past couple of months, but things are moving back towards a routine, and I’m excited to be back in the land of blogging! Woot woot!
So the biggest news is, we sold our house and bought another one! And can I just say that it’s WAY easier to move with no kids than WITH kids?! My goodness! I really had no idea!
We’re getting settled and establishing new routines in the new house, and there are lots of awesome things coming for us and for the blog, but for now, I wanted to share some fun pics with all of you.
NOTE: these pics are of the OLD house. WHY am I sharing pics of the OLD house with you, you ask? Well, I never really got to share ALL of the room tours I wanted to from the old house, and since our real estate agent brought in a professional real estate photographer to photograph the old house, well, my goodness! I wanted to show off the pics! Plus, you’ll get an idea of what the new house might look like from looking through these – most of the decor is the same, for the time being!
Without further ado…
…welcome to 6843 Cabernet Crossing, our previous home!
This is the first home my hubby and I ever purchased, so it will always hold a special place in our hearts!
Just excuse the grass. These pics were taken in the midst of a drought!
Please…come on in!
Dining room… (for more on our dining room, CLICK HERE!)

And there ya have it!
Well, I guess the only thing you didn’t see is the garage, so CLICK HERE to see what it looked like when we first moved in!
We ended up selling the house to a lovely family with 2 small kiddos, a boy and a girl. We hope they find as much joy there as we did for almost 5 years!
Why did we want to sell and move?
It’s simple, really. Both my hubby and I grew up in the rural/country areas of our small town. When we got married, we had moved to the next city over, did apartment life for a year (CLICK HERE TO SEE OUR APARTMENT!) and then bought this house in the city. At that point, everything was revolving around work commutes, and we liked the fact that there was a good amount of activities to partake of in the city!
Well, when the girls came along…
Let me just stop right here and tell y’all that they’re 10 months old now. 10 MONTHS. Can you even believe that?! (Here’s a little Father’s Day pic for y’all!)
Aren’t they HUGE?!
Anyways, when these lovely girls came along and rocked our world, we got to remembering how WE grew up. Out in the country. Where you could hear cows mooing during the day and see amazing sunsets in the evening. Where you had a little bit of space around you but still knew all your neighbors. A simpler time. A simpler life.
And we LOVED it.
So we decided to go back to that lifestyle, for the sake of our sweet girls.
You’ll start to see posts on the new house soon! It’s a lovely place on just over an acre of land, all safely fenced in, with an awesome wooded area behind us, neighbors with chickens on the right, neighbors with cows on the left, and a strawberry field in front! We’ve already seen a snake, a bobcat, a wild turkey, lightning bugs and a host of birds. (Yeah, I’m still terrified of birds, but everyone else at my house loves them, so…)
I’m excited to share it all with all of you! Until the next post…(which will hopefully be sooner rather than later!)
