As Adrian & I prepare for our life changing move to New England, I’m writing a Countdown Journal to keep you all in the loop and to share our adventures in this crazy journey! You can find our full New England story here ♥
One and a half month! It’s kinda really hard to believe right now. 1 1/2 month and we’re leaving California, drive for about 6 days and finally arrive at our new home in New Hampshire!
Right Now // The last few weeks have been crazy busy with weddings and just about every spare moment my brain has been on fire. Designing, dreaming, coming up with cool DIYs to save a buck or two. I’m pretty much ready with our kitchen design (eeeeeeks!!) and there’s a gorgeous vision for the outside of the house too! I’ve come up with a plan on adding more storage to the house and Adrian is dreaming of building a beautiful garage the following summer. Yes, things are certainly moving along!
In my excitement I started to look into what plants grow in the chilly North East! My goal/dream/plan is to have plenty of beautiful flowers in the garden and to make pretty bouquets for the house on a very regular basis!! ♥
A New Blog // This idea has been squirming around in my head for a while. To start a blog dedicated to this very special house. A blog with lots of cool tutorials, ideas and inspiration. A space where I can let my design heart run free :) Because I have a feeling that as soon as we rip into the floors, too many photos of the process will be taken and I definitely don’t want to bore people over here on RMP with this messy design stuff ;) LOL So, stay tuned – it’s already in the works!!
Moving Company // Adrian booked a container with PackRats! It’s 100% happening, people!!!
Excited to Pack // In true Rahel-fashion, I’m excited and giddy like a kid to start packing. Aka, going through all of our stuff and MINIMIZING. In all seriousness, I love moving for this very reason. It gives you a chance to see everything you have, and it gives you the perfect opportunity to just get rid of things that you don’t need/love anymore. The less the better is what I say :)
That’s it for our 1 1/2 month countdown post!
XO, Rahel ♥
