WE SOLD OUR HOUSE!! Ok, I know about 99% of y’all are like, WHAT!!!? Trust me, I get it! I’ve been through about every emotion possible… I had to keep it under wraps until the time was right. Today, I wanted to share with you guys. I’m currently sitting in our great room, looking out the windows at the breathtaking view as I write this…
Let me take you back about 4 years… Luke and I were living in LA, happy as can be. We had started to look for a something in the mountains that would be a second place for us to escape the city life. Cut to us buying our current property with an older home on it. We decided to do a slight remodel, which later turned into taking the home down to the studs, re-designing it and building a brand new modern farmhouse! It took about two years to complete. During the building process we decided we no longer wanted to live in Los Angeles. Once the house was done, we would move to Sun Valley, ID and see how we liked it! Since moving, we’ve LOVE it. So like, why would we sell our house?!!
At the end of 2019 Luke and I started to discuss potentially selling our home at some point in the future to find and/or build another place that has more “kid friendly” spaces. When we built this house we had no kids and honestly didn’t even think that we would live here full time. Well… your perspective definitely changes once you have little ones!! In my mind, there was no rush in selling our place. I was thinking a few years, not NOW!! It’s crazy how things line up in life. What happened next??
In January we had our relator bring a few of his colleagues through our house to tell us what they thought it was worth. Luke was curious but we had no intention of selling our home NOW or putting it on the market! 5 days later, we had THREE offers!! Again, it was NOT on the market. I think the universe was like, this is the time! Luke and I talked for a long time about it, and inevitably we decided to sell. You never know what the future holds, and we already knew we would want to remodel/build another house for our family. We accepted the best offer and yes, that meant leaving EVERYTHING as is – fully furnished including every pillow, blanket and candle. In the end, it is just a home, and I understand this. I know the new owners will love it like we did.
With that said, I have been mourning it for the past 6 weeks. Like, bawling – no joke! I LOVE our place and it’s given me so many gifts. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to learn through building, designing and decorating it. I’ve been able to grow my business, share with y’all, bring my family and friends together as well as live in a place I truly love – Idaho. Most importantly, I brought my son into the world in this home. I tear up just writing this… This house is a symbol of so many joyful experiences in my life. It will always have a special place in my heart.
I now, am excited for what the future holds! So where are we going?? We are staying in Sun Valley, ID and moving into our fixer upper. Thankfully we have another place right down the road. If not, I’d probably be having a full blown melt down trying to move with a newborn!! LOL We will most likely live there for a year or two while we look for another property to remodel and/or build again! For now, I get to decorate and share an entire new house with y’all!! I can’t wait! OH and Luke has a grand idea of traveling through Europe with our babe… So ya, you never know where or what we will be up to in the future! I’m taking it a day at a time and enjoying each moment.
We are moving NEXT WEEK, packing up only our personal belonging and kitchenware. It’s the easiest move I’ve ever done! LOL I’m surprised at how calm I am. As I mentioned above, having a child changes your entire world and perspective on life. I believe this is part of the reason why I’m actually OK with moving. Time for a new adventure with my family!
Thanks to y’all for always being so supportive! Love you guys!
