Anybody out there?

Oh my goodness gracious it's been ages! I promise you, it's just because we've been lazy. We haven't had anything else going on. We did take a trip to Cancun. And I do have a blog post written about that sitting in limbo. There is basically nothing going on as far as renovations go. I, for one, am bursting at the seams to get this show on the road and start a new project. We have a few small projects in the works for the near future and one really big one - hint hint - it's the kitchen! But you'll have to wait on that.

What I'm here to tell you today is that I had the most unexpected visitors Saturday. We had such a full day. We ran tons of errands and we came home for about a 15 minute window to drop off Josh's car that we had just picked up from being serviced. In that 15 minute window, we heard a knock at the door. We opened the door and there was one of the family members (and her husband) that grew up in our little old pink house. They asked if they could come in (and I was secretly praising my lucky stars that we had cleaned the house) and of course we obliged. They were so appreciative, impressed, and happy. I even gave them the link to this blog!  If you're reading this right now, I hope I got your emotions right. :) Maybe it's because I'm a sentimental person, but I was literally on cloud 9 when they left. And a little sorry I didn't snag a picture! It's so crazy to think about lives that have been lived in the space that you now live in and love and renovate. I'm pretty sure they could sense just how much this house means to us and I know after they left, my heart was totally smiling. And then we went to see Gone Girl. And if you've seen that, then you know my emotions shifted. 

But in all seriousness, it was so special to us to have their blessing in a way. Sure, we all make fun of design choices that were made back in the day but at one time that was someone's home. I do hope they come back once our kitchen is complete!

Over the weekend, we started up on some unfinished projects. There were two broken tiles in my bathroom, those got fixed. Some caulk got updated. And a broken tread on our stairs got fixed. So basically nothing you wanna see. #snooze
Oh, and I shared this picture on instagram yesterday. Outdoor furniture is being painted and I'm drinking margaritas. Who knows, maybe I'll even get you an after post? 

Thanks to everyone who has been asking me where I've been. It means so much to me to know that I have a few people following along :)


  1. I wondered what had happened to you.

  2. How fun to have old residents stop by for a visit. Glad you've had such a good summer.
