This day completely snuck up on me! JR told me last week one day that it was the day that we moved from Lincoln, Nebraska to Kansas City last year and I about started crying. I have really been struggling this past month with living far away from family. To be honest we haven’t really made any new friends in Kansas City and I don’t really have any girlfriends that live here. I think I can chalk it up to be a rough month but there are days where I really wish we lived back in Nebraska.
When we moved last year I didn’t have a job yet and spent the entire month of February cooped up in the house unpacking boxes. I had sort of started the blog but had only posted a few times. On February 7, 2017, I decided to post this update with pictures of our new house and I made a commitment to try and post twice a week. I didn’t stick to it perfectly but I did post way more than I ever thought I would and I am so glad I formed this little space on the internet. My proudest moment was posting my first room reveal – our master bathroom renovation. I have met so many new friends and connected with so many women through the blog and on social media than I ever thought was possible.
Although lately, I have been having a rough go of it, today I am reminded that instead of moping around last year I decided to find happiness and build something I’m passionate about where I’m at. I’m so glad I did. Yes, it would be ideal to have this blog someday grow into a full-blown business. But for now I’m just proud of the work I have put into it, the spaces I have been able to transform, and the people I’ve connected with. I truly can’t wait to see what God has in store for year two!
