Hey Guys! It has been a while since I have posted a new blog post! And to be honest, I usually kind of hate the I’ve been busy with life, it’s been a while posts on blogs, but here we are soo…
The main reason for the hiatus on here is that I have been working on interior design stuff. I’ve been trying to finish my NYIAD course while I have also been working for an online interior design company. All while still having a family and being a being a stay at home mom as well!
So we have just been doing life here with no major updates or anything (yet – they are coming and they are big). Elijah just finished his first season of Teeball and it was so much fun for all of us! It was really cool watching him grow and get so much better as the season went, and look forward to each game. Now both boys are doing gymnastics which they both really love! It was Elijah’s request, but we put Isaiah in a class too and they both love it so much!
We did just do a pretty big reno to our yard – we transformed our falling apart deck into a concrete patio! It gives us way more space, and we are loving it. We have our garden going again this year which is also just something that brings so much joy and peace.
We did take a family vacation to Clearwater, Florida in April that was so much fun and so needed. it was just the four of us and the boys ask almost daily when we can go back to Florida! If you haven’t visited – the are is beautiful and very family friendly. I would highly recommend it!
We also visited Albuquerque for the first time since moving away, and it was such a heart warming trip to see all of our friends again! Slightly bittersweet as it felt like going home, but it’s not our home anymore.
We have decided Colorado is our place. The cold winters and springs are hard, for sure, but summer is absolutely perfect here. There are a lot of things about Colorado that aligns with our values – such as the active lifestyles, getting outside more, great schools, lots of alternative options for schools, etc. We toyed with the idea of trying to move back to California, but the FAA is a very difficult place to work for being able to change locations and it just doesn’t make sense to live in a temporary state of mind here in Colorado. We’re here for the long haul and who knows what the future will hold!
We have started looking for a home to call our long term house here in Colorado, and the process is fun, but a little stressful. We have moved a lot and we are going to be in this next house for a looooong time. So we want to make sure it is the right house, while also being realistic to the fact that we do not have an unlimited budget!
I mentioned working for an online interior design company. I have loved getting to work with clients and designing spaces. I’ll start sharing some of my designs in blog posts coming soon! I’m slowing down on working with them, so I can start working more in my own design business.
Doing my own thing is a long term dream if mine. I am a dreamer by nature and have lofty goals and visions. I will start by offering virtual design, but long term goals involve my own home staging company, home furnishing and decor shop, and design firm! These are massive goals, and if you are reading this I appreciate your support in my getting there!
That’s about it for now! I genuinely miss writing on this blog and plan to do weekly posts going forward!
