Life Update + Exciting Announcements

Hello there, friends. Fancy seeing you here.

I hope this post finds you all kinds of well! Things have been a little crazy in “Kylie” world, to say the least.

Remember a week-ish back, when I mentioned on Instagram that we were celebrating? Calm, calm. We are NOT engaged. However, after several months of hard work, we DID happen to sell our house!!! Thank you, thank you. We are ecstatic.

On Saturday, July 22, we got the call that our house had sold. We were sitting at lunch in Denver at this time. I cannot express the amount of relief we felt…and after only 2 short months on the market, I would say we’re pretty blessed.

So then came the whirlwind of beginning a new home search. We knew we wanted to buy again…but that was about all we had decided. Our hearts were torn between a condo and another home…between downsizing and traveling, or continuing the life we were accustomed to. We confused the heck out of our realtor by telling her “whatever we find is what’s meant to be,” and also gave her and ourselves way more ground to cover.

But that’s the kind of gal I am…and the kind of life Alex and I live. We just like to go with the flow. We don’t limit ourselves with firm decisions, but simply pray for God’s will, and His greater plan.

Fast forward 8 days…a new condo is ours. I KNOW! It all happened so quickly! We saw a lot of homes to begin with, but a specific complex had stolen our hearts. Say hello to water views and tiny living! A big change, but the right choice.

And y’all, we CANNOT wait. We have already begun the super-purge. Donating everything we really don’t need, and getting excited to live a little more minimally.

Just me, my man, and my fluffy rottie. I really couldn’t ask for more. We are in the perfect place, and the perfect space, for exactly this time in our lives…and I refuse to look ahead, but instead be grateful for the here and the now.

So, we will be in a new place come the third week in August! And I am SO excited for this next chapter in our lives. We are two weddings down, two more to go…so our plans for the fall are travel, travel, travel. And somehow find time to reno this condo. Ohhh yes. We are gutting and re-designing. Y’all are just gonna die. So look out for that!

So, what have I been up to lately? That’s pretty much it…plus Al and I are planning a few short weekend trips for ourselves. We try to keep it interesting, and really busy around here (clearly). Lol, we don’t even try…I swear it just happens.

That’s the word in our little household. I’m glad to have finally gotten to fill y’all in! Any reno advice y’all have is welcomed!! And keep your eyes peeled for design blogs, and travel vlogs.
