I’m back! Here’s what I’ve been up to

My new office!

It’s been a while! Happy New Year….? lol. It’s good to be back! I just wanted to make a quick post to share what I’ve been up to.

1. We closed on our first home

Some of you my have heard on Twitter, but Brian and I closed on our first home in January! It was an extremely stressful and long road (we’ve been looking to buy a house for almost 2 years and the housing market here is insane) but we finally made it.

Our home is absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t be happier with it. Plus, I now have a new home and office (pictured above) that I get to decorate. 😉

2. I took time to recharge

We looked at houses on and off for a while, and our last stretch started back in December. While we were looking at houses (every weekend, and some weekdays too) I was tired and stressed and just didn’t feel like doing much else.

Once our offer was accepted on this house, I had a lot on my mind. So I decided to take some time away from blogging and social media (mostly) to reflect and recharge, especially after everything with the house. This was probably the best thing I could have done, because now I have a fresh, perspective and a new outlook. Now that I’m back in action, I gave my blog a fresh new look, too. I love that it feels like I’m getting a fresh start with everything!

3. I’m decluttering and organizing things

We’ve been in our home for about 3 weeks now, but we’re still unpacking boxes setting things up. Having a clean, new place with lots of empty and open space feels SO good. Instead of feeling like I want to fill it up, I actually feel like I want to keep it that way (mostly).

It’s an opportunity to get organized and to get rid of stuff I don’t need. If I don’t LOVE it or use it often then it has to go. That goes for my online work as well. I recently canceled some tools and services I had so that I could get back to basics, at least for a while.

4. I’ve been trying to balance everything

I find it really hard to balance everything I’m doing and I know I’ve been lacking in some areas. Health/fitness, family/friends, work, blogging and online biz, entertainment (I’ve been falling behind on shows, books, and movies), and moving/unpacking are just some of the things I’m working with. It’s time for me to get back on track!

What have you been up to?

  • Congratulations on your new home! 🙂 We’ve been up to a lot of the same things! My husband and I just bought a house and moved in! And I’m so with you on trying to balance everything! It is rough! But I think I’m getting back in the groove!

    • Thank you, Paula! And congrats to you guys too 🙂

  • I saw that on Twitter! Congrats on being a homeowner! That’s gotta be so exciting.

    That’s one of the upsides of moving is decluttering and starting fresh. I’m sure you’ll be back on track soon 🙂
