I don’t normally post on Sunday but I’m in too good a mood not to. We’re officially in pack mode because our house will be done next month! It’s still a few weeks away but to say that I’m ready is an enormous understatement. I said to my father-in-law the other day, “Won’t it be great when we can stop having conversations about how the house is or isn’t coming along and talk about something else for a change?” I can’t wait to get into our forever home and start the nesting process all over again. It brings me so much joy to turn our house into a space we love to be in. I’ve already boxed up things we plan to sell at a yardsale and it was such a relief. I plan to tackle most of the packing myself simply because I have more free time than David, plus cleaning and organizing have always been hugely therapeutic for me. More about all this soon!
Moving provides such a great opportunity to make changes. We feel the freedom to replace items we aren’t thrilled about and we’ve even found places our existing furniture just won’t work. I’ve wanted to sell and switch out our current coffee table for a while. We had it custom made by someone found online for a relatively cheap price but it turned out to be a huge hassle by the end and we were pretty disappointed in the quality of the piece. I can tell that isn’t the case for Akron Street’s clean and effortless goods, which I fell in love with recently thanks to The Fresh Exchange. How stunning are the lines of this Kou Table? The entire American Oak Collection is a pleasure to look at, in fact–perfectly modern without feeling lifeless. The dreamy combination of this muted blue sage rug and Akron Street’s white oak table is making me long for cool temperatures and breezes blowing through open windows. Aside from having a great name, the Morse Coat Rack seems like it would fit our hallway needs perfectly and we’re hoping to snatch it up if our yardsale goes well. I can’t resist adding such wonderfully designed pieces to our home.
I’m feeling some real calm and cozy vibes on this beautiful Sunday–just what I need as I head into the chaos of packing and moving. Here’s to a productive and exciting week!
