Happy Friday, friends. I can’t believe I’m writing this post! We’ve officially moved into our new home. And while that was so exciting (and a lot of work), it was hard to leave our special home behind. Coco still asks about it and talks about how she misses her “old home” but always follows it up with how much she loves her new room! I really worried about how she would adjust and she’s made me so proud and is doing great!
I, on the other hand, sobbed when we walked out the front door for the last time. Maybe because I’m such a homebody that houses just mean a lot to me? I mean, I still have a photo of the home I grew up in IN my current home. And when my Mom sold that a few years ago, I cried the entire plane ride back to San Diego. I can’t imagine what the person who was sitting next to me thought.
But here in San Diego, this was the first home we purchased together as a married couple and we brought both of our babies home here. It was a house that was really good to us! Walking through our empty house for the last time allowed me to really reflect on everything. We have the most amazing memories here- Lola lounging in her sun spots and chasing lizards in the yard, entertaining many a family and friends visiting from out of state (one weekend we had nine people sleeping in our little 3 bedroom home!), drinking wine in the backyard, teaching Coco to ride her bike in the alley, lounging in front of the fire watching movies and of course, BRAVO tv, decorating our home together to really make it “ours”, playing seemingly endless hours of princess dress up with Coco in her room and late night sweet baby snuggles with Griffin as a newborn.
It always felt like home to us and nothing was better than coming back from being away on vacation and walking in this front door. As a homebody, creating a “home” for my family is critical to my well being and we did just that here. As you can see from the photos below, our style was a little glam, a little coastal, a little farmhouse and a little traditional.
Clearly, I had a penchant for flowers and coffee table books and while I don’t think that will ever change, I do believe we will have a different aesthetic at our new home. We’re so grateful to have lived in this special house but so excited for our new adventure! It’s totally different from what we have now and I can’t wait to share it all here. In the meantime, here are some of mine (and yours) favorite photos of our first home! Thank you for “liking” this home as much as we did and thank you so much for following along. xo
