Bittersweet End To 5.5 Years...Moving.

We have leased our home since it was nearly new for the past 5.5 years. I always hoped to own it one day but the owner became distressed and we needed to move. We love our area and more specifically our neighborhood so we were fortunate enough to snag another home down the same street. We were hoping to avoid a move as we have been actively looking at real estate recently. Searching for our "forever home" isn't easy in San Diego. We have been riding out the market and waiting to buy.

I took some photos of our home we just moved out of today. It is nice to be in someplace new, but I will forever miss this place.

1,600 square feet, 3 bed, 3.5 bath.

The kitchen, perfect layout for me with a pantry and plenty of cabinets. I did a lot of baking in this kitchen. I also baked bread and made homemade pasta for the first time here.

Living room with fireplace and media niche.

Half bath.

This was my daughter's room. It was huge!

Sneak Peek Of Our New Home!

Long story short - we've moved! Here are some snapshots of the new place. I am overall very happy with the way it turned out. That may also be due to the fact we are mostly settled. Believe me, it has been a very long week of moving. I will have better pictures to follow this soon.

In the midst of all of the chaos, I nearly forgot I am turning 30 years old by the end of the week. If it wasn't for this rug that arrived from Ballard Designs I think I would have seriously forgotten my own birthday. Honest. I picked this rug out as my birthday present and it arrived a few days ago. I am super pleased with it.

We have this awkward decorative space in the hallway going upstairs. I decided to utilize the space by storing photos, DVD's, and drawing paper in IKEA boxes. I added more boxes and styled it a bit differently since taking this photo, so I will update you all on this soon.

The kitchen....still coming along. The gray runner doesn't fit this space well s
