I’ve been VERY quiet around here and on social media lately, mostly because I’ve been exhausted (which you can read more about below). 2020 has been filled with so many things, some good and some bad, but it’s also been filled with lots of big changes for us that (seems like) happened overnight. One of the biggest things to happen this year was the 180 degree turn we made in regards to our living situation, and…spoiler alert (!!)….we bought a house! (Also, yes, Josh is really this happy about the new house, but since he’s out of town for work for a little bit longer, I definitely needed to include him too. Also, sorry Josh. Haha).
This post has been a LONG time coming and, true to form, I waited until the very last minute to share it with you guys. Buuuuut, at least it’s getting done, right? I had this house built back in 2004 and it’s been home ever since. I’ve been adding finishing touches here and there, ever since I renovated it in 2016 (see the kitchen before photo below…yikes), but I never really felt like it was ever quite done, and honestly, I don’t know if you ever actually reach that point in a house. It seems like something is always a work in progress or I’m constantly searching for “the perfect” item to display on a shelf or hang on a wall. But, regardless, finishing the house was part of my 2019 goal list and I was determined to get it done! Annnnnnd then life had some unexpected surprises in store for me, like moving to North Carolina! So in a few weeks, I’ll be packing everything up and starting over across the country, but I still wanted to share my Utah house tour with you guys before I go! Also, fair warning…this is a loooooong post!
