It’s a new year (we’re almost a month in), nothing has changed accept for the overwhelming need to get our house furnished. We moved in after final construction around mid-September of 2018, & I was in zero rush to furnish the house. I kept telling Paul, “We’ll just do it as we go. I don’t want to buy a bunch of random things to fill it & then later on, want to redo it.” — Well…. here we are. Almost five months in & Paul & I are both itching to finish each room.
We’ve mastered our kitchen, guest bedroom, Holland’s room, most of the living room & for the most part our dining room. However, we have yet to find fixtures like chandeliers, a dining table & our own bedroom furniture that we just REALLY LOVE. If you know me, you know that, I usually do not impulsively buy large item pieces, unless I LOVE IT. Not like it, not kinda need it… it has to be something I just absolutely LOVE. Of course, there are the occasional shoes or tops that I buy, they come in & are nothing like the photo, or just look ridiculous on me. However, again, if I don’t LOVE it, I’ll return it. I have no shame in returning an item that just isn’t for me. Or I’ll always ask a friend or my sister if they want it before I return it.
I’ve promised you guys a home tour, & I’m sticking to that promise. I just don’t want to, well, for lack of better words – half ass it. I want you to see it finished, not just kinda finished. Because there is no fun in that & what’s the point?! — So, stay tuned. I promise there will be more home posts.
As most of you know (the ones that follow religiously), I took most of the end of 2018 & January off of blogging due to needing a break from just everything. We have been just going & going with events, traveling, home stuff, work stuff… it was the end of the year & that is always mine & Paul’s busiest time of the year for our jobs. Plus, with the holidays & everything else that we had going on, it was hard to sit down & just type. I would easily get distracted, or figure out that I had nothing to say. I have all of these drafts, with titles but no substantial material. That’s when I realized, I needed a break, to reset, refresh & come back when I was ready.
So, here we are. I’m ready, are you?! This year, is going to be so fun. I have so many fun posts – that I’ve actually ALREADY planned! How exciting is that!?
Anyway, in case you thought I forgot about my blog, I didn’t. I just needed a break. Now that my break is over, let’s get this 2019 party started!
