We’re moving!

If you have been reading this blog since 2010, you may have noticed by now we have moved A LOT in the last 5 years. After working out alot of details that I won’t bore you with, we found a house and are moving! Thankfully, this time we are only moving 10 minutes down the road.  We are so excited for our new place, and to finally feel settled and to make Dallas feel like home.

We officially get the keys on Sunday, so in the meantime I will be packing up all of our odds and ends and you will have to wait for pictures.

Stay tuned for lots of home and design inspiration headed your way. I have been pinning ideas for the last two years so to say I am excited to see plan to come to life is an understatement.

“I get up every morning determined to both change the world and have one hell of a good time. Sometimes this makes planning my day difficult.” – E.B. White

If you haven’t noticed  by my instagrams or the radio silence on the blog, Patrick and I packed up and moved to Dallas.  I had been hinting about a move on the blog for a while now, but I am excited to tell ya’ll that we are officially (well almost) Texas residents.  It has been quite the whirlwind of events this last week, but we are so excited for our next new adventure.  Because life is not as exciting without a little adventure right?

So a little background on our move, in case you are wondering why it seemed so quick.  This has been a long time coming, at least in the back of our minds. While Ohio was a nice transition spot and an opportunity for Patrick and I to be together again, we knew small town living was not our thing. Don’t get me wrong, there are some benefits to a simpler life, but we never felt at home in our small, furnished house (just think apple pie wallpaper in the kitchen and a lazy boy in the living room). While our happy life is not and should not be based on that “stuff” that makes our house a home, for us, we realized it is important in feeling settled.  So here we are, in Dallas, and have already started our new jobs and living out of a suitcase at the moment.  There will be a lot more updates to come about the big move, and definitely some more interior posts coming your way (cross your fingers but I think we found the perfect house).

Thank you for being patient with me if my posts are somewhat infrequent in the next couple weeks while we get settled in our new city.  I promise there are lots of good things to come!

A little side note: If you are from the Dallas area, I would love to hear from you! I need all the recommendations we can get! Leave a comment or email me at!
