The Sanche Home Update

If you’ve been following me on IG, you know that our family has sold our house (yay!) and have purchased a new home! We are so excited for this new house and to fill it with new memories!

This new house is in a different but nearby city, has almost 900 square feet more than our former home and is in impeccable condition with big yard. Did I mention that every wall is in a garish shade of orange, green and yellow?

It is going to take buckets and buckets of paint (and hopefully yards and yards of some fresh white base boards) to make it what we envision for this place but we are pretty excited for the challenge! I foresee many late nights painting walls while listening to audiobooks! 
Bring. It.

I’ve been having way too much fun pinning away inspiration for the new house on Pinterest (you can see my board Our Home to get an idea of what style I’m going for!) which has been so exciting. Anyone else totally on board with the farmhouse style? This girl is! I can’t wait to decorate the kids’ rooms, the playroom and of course the kitchen! I plan on taking some before pictures so I can share our progress. Hopefully the first set of “After” pictures come before Christmas...fingers crossed!

Since we don’t get into our home until late Summer, my parents have kindly offered to let me and the kiddos live at their place until we take possession. Remember that adorable a-frame cabin I posted on IG a while back? That’s where you’ll find me this summer and I’m so excited to be able to enjoy that darling cabin! Donald will be commuting back and forth and staying with family close to his job since my family lives quite a ways from the city. It’s going to be a super strange Summer, with our family not being together every night. 
We plan on making the most of our time together on the weekends and the odd weeknight and dive into that old Summer bucket zlist we came up with a while back. 

That’s where we are at! We’ve been planning to take this leap for a while and I’m so grateful that we are doing it surrounded by our families. I keep reminded myself that sometimes one has to think (and live) outside the box to get to where they need to be. We are so lucky to have the opportunity and I know that despite being away from daddy during the week, our kiddos are going to have the bestest time spending their summer at the farm! We are already day one into this little adventure and so far the kids are on cloud nine!
