New Home and Giveaway

Simply Grove's new home

I’m so thankful to be writing that we FOUND A HOUSE! After selling our home this past fall, we’ve been on the hunt for the next perfect project. We are currently under contract and will close in the next few weeks. Once we close, it’s party time! We have some pretty big goals for this space. Though we are on a time crunch (our lease on the rental ends in a few months) we don’t want to rush the process for the sake of rushing. I’m sure we will do things in phases, but the majority of work will be done before we move in.

There will be major differences between this renovation and our last renovation. We lived in our last home throughout every single project. We won’t do that this time around. Another difference is we’re not as much of beginners as we were before. Shane, or as most like to call him Late Night with Shane, is a renovating boss now! He’s got things down to a science. We will also be hiring out quite a bit more than we did before. My design firm is crazy busy at the moment and Shane is going back to school, so we don’t have as much spare time as we did before. But that doesn’t mean we won’t indulge in some late nights. We’re thrilled to get started!

If you read my Instagram post on Tuesday, you read that I am focusing my attention on my email newsletter, Pinterest and this blog. I am going to try and deliver all of our new home content, as well as design/styling tips and design conversations to these three channels, so make sure you’re following along. I’m not leaving Instagram and my design firm, We Three Design, will still be going strong on Instagram. I’m just cleaning things up a bit for my own sanity sake. I am beyond thankful for all of you and I hope that we can bring you new, fresh content that will help you in your own home journey!

To celebrate I’m giving away 5 of my favorite candles to 5 different people. Have you smelled Lightwell Co. Rose and Almond Milk? It’s DELIGHTFUL! Leave a comment below and I’ll choose five winners randomly.

  8. our house is 100 years old and I love it! But, I dream that our next house (our retirement house) I can fix up before we move in. Take our time, make it perfect and then have the world’s biggest moving sale of all the stuff that doesn’t fit in the new house! Heather
