This summer we thought about moving, even put an offer on a home (the same home we put an offer in on last year, but they took down the listing) but we weren’t all in and another family got it. Which is totally fine with me. I wanted to move in and gut it. So now that we are staying in our home I want to do the updates I’ve always wanted to do.
So far I’ve done the kitchen, we finished the entire basement, and have decorated. I am now wallpapering and hardwood flooring the upstairs and replacing the carpet. Then I’d like to eventually like to move on to remodeling the bathrooms. Baby steps, but it’s a work in progress.
I feel good about this decision and about just staying put and being content. I love nesting and making this home our own. After all, I am the one who chose it. I love its bones, kids room layout and love watching all the progress.
