I have some of the most exciting news I’ve been able to share in a while – my husband and I have bought our first home! It’s an adorable mid-century in St. Paul, Minnesota. It was in Better Homes & Gardens in 1959 and the original owners built it themselves by hand in 1952 (it blows my mind!). I can not wait to get my hands on this property – we have a long list of things we want to do to make it more contemporary and “us” without spoiling the existing retro character of the house (the primary reason we bought it). Can you smell a spin off blog on the horizon? I can!
We close on the 30th. In the meantime, we’re packing frantically and trying to get someone to take over our lease (if you’re in the Twin Cities and interested, our posting is here). Posting may be a little sporadic as a result, and expect me to be a little behind on emails. I’ll also be updating the vendor directory after the move, so if you’re waiting to be approved or are planning to apply, please note I won’t be reviewing portfolios until after that time.
