August Recap Plus an Announcement!!!

July was a super productive blog month, I cranked out five posts with a couple more projects humming right along...Then, August came and....radio silence! Here's the scoop on where I've been all month plus an exciting announcement!


We spent the first two weeks working on home maintenance stuff that isn't the most inspiring blog material.

We Stained our deck...

I painted the metal laundry line posts and strung up a new line.

I also started organizing the terrible mess in B's closet. It's much better now! I want to share a post, but I can't promise anything on account of our announcement...read on!

In addition to home owner stuff, we had some quality family time. We attended the Nebraska Balloon and Wine Festival, which I highly recommend!

We also went for a hike at Platte River State Park, we needed to test out B's new Deuter pack and binoculars!

Then, a couple weeks ago, I spent quite a bit of time prepping for and travelling to an interview with a new company....I bet you can guess where this is going!

I found out a few days ago that I landed the job, which is an incredible and super exciting opportunity! The company is based near Lawrence, so we are relocating to Kansas!

My first day on the job is less than four weeks away, so things are going to move very quickly. Fortunately, the company hooked us up with relocation services, which will ease the burden significantly. Jesse and I are heading down for a real estate tour soon and I'm so excited to explore our new community and shop for a home together! I'm not sure how much DIY posting I will be doing over the next few weeks, but I'd love to share some of the relocation process, if ya'll would be interested? Home relocation - interesting? Or press pause until we are settled?  I welcome your thoughts! Thank you so much for visiting our little corner of the internet, I'm looking forward to sharing our new adventures in home ownership with you...from Kansas!
