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.

Xoxo,

Kylie

An Ode To Alex On Our Two Year Anniversary

Well, technically the day after.

And just like that, two years have come and gone. It feels like its been a lifetime, and a day all at once. And because you are you, Alex, and you are everything I’ve ever dreamt of, it is your turn to be featured on this here blog.

Cheers to two years, baby! It has been pure joy! You found me in the midst of heartache and soul searching, and took my wild mind and loved it for everything it was. Despite my imperfections, you have loved me. Through my pain and struggles, you have loved me. And you’ve made me a better person in more ways than I can count. That alone is absolutely priceless.

In this roller coaster world, you are my constant. You are the anchor that binds my wandering heart. Your soul is so pure…the most pure I have ever known. And your love is something I will never grow tired of.

Thank you for making me laugh when it was hard to smile, for encouraging me when I’ve lost my faith, for making my every dream your goal. Thank you for challenging me with love, for being the leader of our home, for loving me as Christ loved the church…selflessly, and unconditionally. I could have never created you in my wildest dreams, yet here you are; my greatest blessing.

I hope the years to come are filled with abundant happiness. I hope they are overflowing with Jesus and love. But as for now, just keep doing you…and know that I would never want to be anywhere but here – together.

I will love you forever.

Xoxo,

Kylie
