If you follow me on instagram, you probably know by now that there’s news on the home front. After looking at countless homes, property sites, and house plans, we’ve decided to put all of that on pause and rent for a year. We feel good about this choice since it will allow us to step back and really take our time with such a big decision.
Last Friday, we looked at a rental in Habersham and just took the plunge. We moved in the very next day! It’s been five days and there are still boxes everywhere and furniture still in the storage unit. I’ll feel so much better when pictures get on the walls …and when every last cardboard box is out of sight.
I’ll be honest. It kind of stings a little unpacking everything, knowing we probably will be buying or building our own home within the year. I don’t want to move any more!
Our new space has quite the different vibe than anywhere else we’ve lived. Stained concrete floors, along with exposed wood beams and air/water ducts make for an industrial feel. But I’m honestly kind of loving it. Our furniture is really cozy, so it’s starting to warm up the space nicely. We do have beautiful wood floors upstairs which gives a neat contrast between the two floors. Winston, on the other hand, just isn’t sure. He’s been almost permanently hiding under the comforter we keep folded on the end of our bed. That kitty boy.
Our neighborhood might be my favorite place ever. I’ll never tire of the trees and waterfront views. Looking forward to many evening strolls this summer.
Below are photos of the marketplace area – full of cute little shops and restaurants.
So yeah – that’s where I’ve been! If you don’t hear from me tomorrow, it very well could be because I’m buried under cardboard boxes. Or bubble wrap. There’s a lot of that around here, too.
