BIG News Y'all!

Change is a comin'...
There is a reason for my lack of posts lately!  I am in the midst of a crazy whirlwind!  Let me explain...
My husband and I have had this recurring conversation about moving out of California.  We have both lived in SoCal our entire lives and just wanted a change, an adventure!  We have never had the guts to do it though b/c we had not found a place we felt could make up for leaving the great CA weather, oh, and then there's the beach!  Then we found Austin, TX...
My hubby travels to Austin frequently for business and often talks about how much he loves it there so three years ago my Mom and I went out for a weekend to see what all the hype was about and...I LOVED it!   I was hooked and didn't want to leave!  So, we continued to daydream and basically the "fear" of the unknown and leaving our great friends and family kept us here.
After our recent trip.....we both felt VERY strongly that Austin is where we needed to be.  Sooooo, we got home, sold our house and are currently packing everything we own in a U haul (including four goldfish).
I am beyond excited about our future and also fearful that I will have a total panic attack at any moment!!! 
The best part is...well, one of the best parts....I get to actually design my OWN house!  Can't wait to blog about that process.

Wish me luck!   :-)

Oh how exciting and what an adventure!

Congratulations and I wish you happiness in your new home. Watching you design it will be wonderful. It makes me want to move too.

Congratulations! SO often we let fear of the unknown hold us back in life, but we should never have to look back and say "what if". Proud of you guys for following your heart. Wishing you a safe move and a happy life in your new home!

How awesome! I am a little sad, because I was just going to email you and ask if you'd want to meet for coffee and talk about design! I'm an interior design student and will be attending FIDM this next year and loveee your work. BUT change is exciting!! My brother just moved to TX to attend Baylor and he loves it. Safe travels!! :)

Congratulations! Austin is awesome. We lived in San Antonio for 8 years before recently moving out of state and we miss Texas so much! Enjoy designing you new house :)
