We Bought a House!
I can’t even believe I’m saying this but we are officially home owners! Our story has been a long one, we’ve been renting for almost a decade and have moved even more times than that. Between school, jobs, having a baby, and everything else we’ve experienced as a family we’re finally settling into a permanent place and we are so excited, and honestly relieved. House hunting in the Portland, Oregon area is no joke! We started out looking at homes in a specific area that is notorious for being extremely competitive and was proving difficult to find what we needed within our budget. When we expanded out a few miles we found the perfect home for our family under budget that is still close enough to my parents as well as a quick drive to downtown.
Since we are saving some money on the house we have fun plans for the space! I’ve been pinning home decor inspo like CRAZY and I can’t wait to just get my hands on the space and get started. We’re going to re-do the entire kitchen and master bathroom and Stella will be getting her official “toddler room.” I’ll be sharing a whole series on the blog with before and after photos as well as the whole process of transformation! Home decor and design is a huge passion of mine, I used to draw and imagine home floor plans when I was little and constantly re-arranged the furniture in my bedroom. As a child I wanted to be an architect and then I got more into interior design as I got into High School and College age. Owning a home of my own has always been a dream of mine, to have my own space that I can mold into my own personal haven is a dream come true!
We won’t be moving in until the end of the month even though we’ve closed on the house and we are recorded as the owners, we’re actually renting the home back to the previous owners to give them time to complete the purchase on their new home, but I’m so excited to bring you all along on our moving journey in a few short weeks! get ready for all of the home decor posts over the next months!
