I know it’s been a few months since I’ve been blogging, or on any social media really. But I am happy to announce I am back!
To be honest I needed the break for the summer – why?
Because, we were busy moving! YEY!
We took the plunge and moved from South Florida to South Carolina. We have been thinking about moving for awhile now and the summer seemed like the right time for us.
Starting the kids off in a new school fresh for the new year was the main focus. Our home was listed for only 6 weeks. We closed pretty quickly and had a home build in SC right outside of Charlotte. I have to say it is so peaceful here. The hustle and bustle of South Florida was getting to us.
We moved over a decade ago pre kids, pre marriage on a whim – two kids really looking back at it that went on vacation and never returned to NY to stay and raise a family. As years went on I missed the seasons. Since we grew up in NY we knew they were fun but I dreaded the winters. I am not really a fan of snow. However, a dusting would be nice for Christmas.
So after some great detail in looking over school districts we settled here. So far has been one of the best things we could have done.
We outgrew our Florida home very fast and needed more space. Financially this was a great move for us since our money goes alot further up here. We were able to purchase our dream house.
I said it a million times how stressful moving is as we were going though it but now it feels amazing to finally be here and getting settled. There is so much house I can not wait to decorate and add DIY projects to for you guys as well. Same with recipes my new kitchen has inspired me to really want to get back into cooking, baking and meal planning.
I think I was out of routine for so long I am missing it – a creature of habit but I know when things need to take a back seat.
So there it is, I can’t wait to share the rest of the journey with you guys soon!
