The Joy of Moving

Its been a very long month and I feel that I’ve been consumed with dejunking, trashing, making numerous trips to the DI (thrift donation), and taping up boxes. My poor children have not had alot of attention lately especially Easton gets more and more confused each time I tape up another item of his. Yesterday Trent took down the TV and that broke the string for him. He kept pointing at the wall and said, “No show?” I just sat and watched him walk around the room trying to find the TV. In a 2.5yr old mind I’m sure this situation is just so hard to understand and you can’t explain it to them. I hope he adjusts well that’s all I’m asking for. I pretty much packed up the whole house myself because I was just so antsy to get it done and Trent has been so busy with work that all I asked him to do was his closet and the garage. But it ended up me going through his closet and then I had to pack up all this tool stuff which I just threw into a box and did no organization. Hopefully its ok. I am now sitting down at my in-laws and have settled her short-term with a few things like clothing and books. I feel so free its incredible. I’ve loved watching my townhome shrink in size as I packed. Do I really need all those things to clutter up my life and my family? I guess you do to create memories but for right now I just feel like I don’t have alot of responsibility to take care of my things and its a nice feeling. Trent and I were invited to a spontaneous camping trip with friends and I said, “Yes” and you might wonder why. But if you knew my craziness this last month I NEED it to just get away and just enjoy nature and I am excited and I’m sure my children will be too because it will be family time and will be able to give them my full attention. So the joy of moving is only for a small moment and I can’t wait to see where our new home will...

Farewell 333 Oak Ave

It’s been a sweet experience living in this area! We’ve enjoyed our time here by the beach and being able to walk around the village and enjoying the little shops around us. We were lucky to be in this place as long as we have. It was for sale the whole time we’ve lived here. I got the phone call from Sandi (our landlord) telling me that the condo sold and I was really praying for one more summer at this place and not to let it happen now while I’m 7 months prego but hey what can a girl do? Its been a long 3 weeks since she made that phone call and I’ve packed and walked through at least 15 homes to rent and I just get more and more frustrated because I have really been a spoiled girl the last few homes. We’ve seen a few options but its now crunch time. We are scheduled to move out April...

A Neighborhood

I’ve longed for the day when my family will be settled into a home that we own and my children grow up with the same great friends that they have made on our neighborhood. That was my life as a kid and my neighborhood growing up was just like that! I had 3 additional mothers who took care of me and feed me and treated me like their own. We took care of eachother’s yards and grabbed mail while they were on vacation. We played baseball in the street and rode our bikes up and down Wasatch Way. It was truly a great place to grow up. We were even able to do alot of service for our neighbors and one in particular was for Tom who was in a wheelchair. On many occasions we helped him out even though he was stubborn about it most of the time and didn’t want to accept help. I mowed his lawn and we shoveled his driveway when it snowed. I want this so much for my children and I long for that day for that type of neighborhood. I want to be the house that my children’s friends flocks too to feel safe and secure and more importantly to feel the spirit. I want to host parties and to have annual block parties in the street! One day, One day I...

My Past Work

I started getting into home design when I had to when we built our first home. I didn’t know I was so interested in it and I think over time I have come to LOVE it and enjoy making a space for my family to enjoy and feel safe. We all go through our different phases of our lives and I am a believer of CHANGE and especially when it comes to a home. I love to change furniture around just to spice up an area because I tend to get bored with the way it looks. As I have learned more about design I have found that I want to eventually transition into something else. Hence the purpose of this blog. I have to to know that I need to branch out and try something new and “spice” up my space. My past homes: 2423 Primrose Ave 672 Borden...

The Family Tree

I have finally found the family tree that I’d been looking for, for quite some time. I have this vision of creating a family wall by my front door and its been quite the project and I’ve been searching and searching for all the right knick knacks to finalize the project. It’s been in my current project list since September and its still not done! But now I see the end in site now that I found this. I’ve been on her website before looking and looking but not until recently did I find this one. I love it and can’t wait to blow it up and put the finishing touches on it. Wish me...
