Hello, my dears. I’d alluded to some BIG NEWS recently and this is it! We bought our first home and are moving to Greensboro, North Carolina. I have dreamed of owning (and decorating!) my own place for ages and couldn’t be more thrilled. The new house has a very Southern feel with lots of quirky charm like a laundry chute, a wood-paneled library (complete with a gun cabinet…lordy lordy), and a proper sunroom begging to be filled with wicker furniture. While we love Seattle, my husband and I will both be working from home so we wanted more space and a city with more diversity for our black son. We have lots of friends in the North Carolina and it just feels right. I haven’t actually seen the home in person (you know I love an adventure!), but Simon did fly out to see it before we put in the offer.
Tomorrow we leave for a week-long road trip across country with two pugs and Gabe (he’s now 21 months and full of energy!). Needless to say, pray for us! Stay tuned for lots of photos of the new place and plenty of home renovation and decoration content (I’ve got six bathrooms to decorate—bring on the wallpaper!). I can’t wait to share this exciting chapter of our lives with all of you.
