Don’t go clicking on that ‘Homestead’ link at the top of the page. It is old news. We moved! Didn’t you hear?
We started casually house hunting around Thanksgiving of last year. The houses in the neighborhoods where we were looking were going fast. Like on the market at 9 p.m. and sold by noon the next day fast. We knew we couldn’t just keep casually ‘looking’ if we were serious about buying. We managed to preview a home (thanks to our awesome realtor) that wasn’t even on the market yet. Made an offer, and here we are.
We moved in the day after Christmas. With an infant. Phew! Makes me tired just thinking about it.
A lot of the furniture from our previous house came with us, but some of it didn’t. We wanted to make some upgrades and additions. Furniture shopping is hard! After browsing online shopping sites for what seemed liked days upon end, we bundled up Zee and braved the longest, coldest winter of all time for some real life furniture shopping all over town and particularly at Bob Mills.
Bob Mills isn’t somewhere I would’ve sought out on my own, but after all those hours of online shopping— one brand of furniture kept catching our attention again and again. Bob Mills carries the brand locally. After viewing the pieces that we liked in person, we ended up bringing a couple of them home.
My favorite: This gorgeous wine bar. I think it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever owned. I love seeing it as I come down the stairs every day.
Moving into a new house is thrilling, but also a little frustrating. I don’t have the budget to purchase everything I want to at once. The new place is definitely a work in progress, and will be for a while.
I’m okay with that.
Actually….I’d rather spend money on another trip to northern California to stock that pretty blue bar with wine instead of saving up for another piece of furniture.
C’est la vie,
