    • Before, during, during, and after. Hours of work, lessons learned, and more hours of work. Restoration Bungalow continues with one more room nearly finished. The moment I saw the house I was inspired to restore it back to its original beauty, one room at a time.  Tons of credit to Forest for all his hard work! Classic colors, furniture, and fixtures. Half the fun is the research and the rest is seeing the vision executed!! All that’s left is artwork and new bedding.

    • Quiet night in a quiet town living a quiet life.
    • Making a house... a home. Everyday I’m filled with gratitude.

    • Seriously pinching myself while settling into my new home. Being able to walk out my backdoor into a canyon full of deer and jack rabbits, the dogs being able to run free the whole time, and quiet country life waiting when I get home. It’s hard to believe this is life.
.
2019 is off to a pretty good start! First day of work at my new job is Monday and spending these last couple days working away on the house and taking the dogs into the mountains behind our house.

    • This year I got the ultimate gift, on Friday I was handed the keys 🔑 to my new house.
.
We spent the weekend starting to bring her back to her original 1920’s charm. Christmas we woke up in the  house, drank coffee, opened presents, and took a hike out the back door up into the canyon behind the house. I already love being back in a tiny town you’ve never heard of. People have stopped by, given us cookies, fudge, and chocolates. Heard stories of previous families who lived in the house and a few nuggets of the property history.
.
Beyond excited for the next chapter of life. It’s been a crazy last month and a half. A dream job came to me, bought a house, and now in the process of moving and bringing this little beauty back to life.
.
The lesson learned in the last couple months is - trust life has a plan for you - things happen for a reason - and life is full of good people.
    • Did you catch the recent podcast episode with @bemorewithless? We talk about living simply and loving life.
.
Because of the holiday this week’s episode will come out later in the week.
.
Happy Holidays All!!
    • Rebuilt in the 1599. Still in business today... I love the history of the UK 🇬🇧 and pub names... but mostly the pub names.
