We're moving!

Yep, if you didn't know - we are moving...again! We are moving out of our current house mid-August and will move into our new place at the end of August. My husband is going back to school so we are moving to a town near his school. Imagine a farm town + a lake town put in one...that's it. The population sign says 2,383. I think we are going to fit in juuuust fine!

If you couldn't tell, we love all things DIY. So, you know that our whole townhouse is going to be done by us + on the cheap! We are going to build all of our furniture and create all of our decor...and the best part is we are going to show YOU how to do it too...specifically for those of us who are renting! To start, I thought I would give you a quick tour of our new home. I wish I had taken better pictures, but I think it will give you a good glimpse of our next adventure!

By the way, I wanted to say thank you if you have been praying for us and our little housing adventure. It's been so stressful to say the least, but we are so confident that this is where the Lord has us for this next season.

As much as we would love to be able to buy a house, it's not in the works for us for a few more years. We are renting a townhouse that has three bedrooms and two baths. Here's the front door - I love the color and the white trim! It's pretty narrow space, but I think I could fit some flowers in the front and one of our doormats outside too. And maybe a wreath on the front door?!?

When you first walk in, there is a small entryway on your left. On the right, there is a door to our one-car garage and another door to the downstairs bathroom. Like I mentioned above, I didn't take the best pictures - so I didn't get pictures of that unfortunately. As you walk down the small hallway, you come upon one big room! It's the kitchen, dining + living room all in one.

Here's a closer look of the kitchen. Did I mention that these units have just been built? We are going to be the first people to live in here. All new applicances, too! We are so excited. We are going to build an island and a small dining room table too. I'm going to look into some removable vinyl "back splash", so I'll let you know that goes! And if you know Bradley this won't surprise you -- he wants under cabinet lighting. ;) We have never had this many cabinets before, so this will be a real treat!

As you can see, the stairs are right behind the kitchen/in the living room. The living room is to the left of the kitchen in this picture.

These are the windows in the kitchen/living area - I'm in LOVE. They provide a ton of natural light which I absolutely love - I mean, who doesn't?! And look at that's a taste of home for us! Bradley and I both grew up in a farm town, so this has been the sweetest treat from the Lord. There are farms galore around this town!

Like I mentioned above, there are three bedrooms in our unit. We will use the rooms as a master bedroom, guest bedroom and office space. There is also a full bath to the left of our bedroom. Taking pictures of bedrooms is pretty hard, but here is a picture of the master. There is one thing I want to show you about this room though...


This view, y'all. The horses!! I'm so excited I could stare at it all day long. Do you think the owners of this farm will want to be friends with us?

And one other thing I'm SUPER pumped about: brand new washer and dryer!

So that's all for my little tour now! We are going to go back sometime after we get back from vacation, so I'll share more pictures then. For now, I'm about to hop on the airplane and board to Dallas! We are visiting our best friends who live there and we are soooo excited! Hope you enjoyed this little tour...we are so excited for our new place! Thanks for sharing in the joy with us.
