Closing Day

I’m hoping I can hold it together as I make this announcement…

 Today we sold our home.

 The home we stumbled upon by accident and fell so deeply in love with 5 years ago.

The home we spent two years together as just us.

 The home we brought our first baby home to.

The home we brought our second baby home to. 

The guest room that later became Thomas’s room where we hosted family and friends for the weekends.

The cozy living room that actually only looked like a living room briefly — and then became a play room…

The kitchen where we spent so much time creating delicious meals.


The bathroom where I rarely spent any time alone in. 

Our bedroom that I never got around to decorating.

 The backyard we hosted many friends in for game nights, dinners, and parties:

2016: Football Party // Thomas’ 1st Birthday //  Caroline’s 2nd Birthday 

2015: TaTa Party // Caroline’s 1st Birthday

2013Summer Soiree // Fiesta Engagement

The back deck where Matt and I spent many late nights together listening to music and laughing over cocktails after the kids went to bed.

 The front porch I spent so much time rocking a baby on during my maternity leaves.

And of course, I’ll never forget these front porch steps that we took so many photos on.

It’s no surprise we’ve been wanting a little more space for our family for awhile now. In fact, a few years ago we almost sold our house but pulled it off the market when we found out we were pregnant with Thomas. Although 1800 square feet was the perfect size for two of us plus Charlie, things have gotten a little tight with two rambunctious toddlers and their toys. But despite living on top of each other, we knew we didn’t want to move until we found our forever home — ideally in our same neighborhood. However, we thought that would take about a decade to save for and find but our new home story turns out to be one of the craziest (and unplanned) things that
has ever happened to us and we are excited to share all the details

So today was actually a double closing day for us as we closed on two homes — old and new. But we’re not moving just yet! We are renting our house back for the next 10 days while we give our new home a little TLC.

However in the meantime, you can find me bawling my eyes out over closing the doors to our beloved bungalow…
