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.

Summer Water Wine by Yes Way Rosé x Winc | Plus COUPON CODE

Mmm…wine. Need I say more? Okay, rosé. Mic drop.

I am trying out this monthly wine membership with Winc and am particularly in love with this Summer Water rosé. So naturally, I had to tell y’all about it. Don’t be judging the wino trend.

First things first, let me tell you ’bout Winc.

How It Works

  • Winc is a monthly wine membership, with no membership fees! You simply answer 6 questions about your palate, and four wines are custom selected for you, boxed, and shipped to you each month. Your fee is the price of each individual bottle, with bottles starting at only $13.

All The Reasons Why I Love It

  • The variety of wine is primo…I’m talking anything you could ever want
  • Shipping is complimentary
  • You can rate your wines to get better recommendations
  • Don’t like your wine? You don’t have to pay for it
  • Members can skip a month at any time, free of charge (say what?!)
  • Simply call or live chat to cancel your membership

Now let’s talk about this Summer Water… “Yes Way Rosé” is right! I mean, I know where it gets it’s name from…this here will be my water for the summer. This dry, crisp rosé is French inspired with notes of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white peach (can you say, refreshing?!?). Pair it with caesar salad and pizza…with tomato, sausage, mozzarella and basil (I’m drooling), or your favorite sushi and fried rice. I can picture a cheese board…maybe even grilled cheese…mac ‘n’ cheese…give me all the cheeses.

Needless to say, I recommend. Try this out. You deserve it.

If you’re anything like me (indecisive and short on time), save yourself the hassle of those necessary wine runs (necessary…lol). Let Winc handle your wine for you. You just kick your feet up and relax. Come on, I dare you.

Okay, so you decided to try it out? AWESOME SAUCE. Because I have a coupon code (mwahaha). Use code “kylie” and get your first 4 bottles for $27 (a $25 savings). You’re welcome.
