I have been meaning to blog for some time now, but as my title states; “when life get’s in the way”.
Recently my boyfriend Nick and I have made a big move, we are officially home owners and broke! (A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!) This move was a particularly big one for me. On top of this being my biggest purchase ever and my first home, it is also a lot further and in the “country” than I thought it would be. Truth be told, it scares the crap out of me. Last night I decided that I wanted to peruse a store while Nick was out so I decided to go to the closest Winners/Homesense which was 14km’s away! ugh….
So why did we move there you ask? Good question! We absolutely fell in love with the house and can foresee the potential that it has. We looked in Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Dundas, Milton , Georgetown and nothing felt the same way this house did when we first saw it. What sold me in particular was the beautiful room in the back.
We have so many plans for this beautiful space. Nick is a carpenter (in case I have not mentioned that in previous posts), so you can imagine the excitement that we have knowing how wonderful our place will eventually look. I am going to be blogging updates as we do updates around the house. I am always looking for inspiration and furthermore, hoping to inspire others.
We are slowly beginning to find some pretty awesome sports around our area and can not wait to explore some more. In the photo’s below starting from the left are Nick and I cracking some bubbly after everything was moved in. On the right you will see us having celebratory drinks after receiving the keys in a local Brewery in Dundas Ontario called Shawn and Ed. (Great little spot…lager shed if you want to look it up online, http://lagershed.com/ ) Lastly, the very bottom picture is our new home!
I have also set up my gym and can’t wait to share some workouts with you. Until then…..wish me luck!
