Good morning friends, it has been a while since I have posted on here. Quite honestly this last year and a half has been, well…WEIRD. There is so much to say about this crazy weird year, but we all know this already. I have stepped back from blogging because I just felt so anxious about this world. I am not going to go ahead and list all the reasons why I haven’t been around, but know that I am back and ready to start getting to work around here.
As many of you know from my Instagram, we moved into our 1930’s farmhouse in the beginning of January of this year. We sold our home in Wake Forest and moved about an hour north into Virginia onto 3 acres of land with our house that needs lots of love. And that is where we are at right now. Trying to get our house done has been very difficult around here. We have not had the best luck with contractors so in true Our NC Nest (P.S I am not ready to change our name here, its just lots of work. Maybe one day? Who knows!) fashion, we are doing most of the work ourselves. So in saying that, it is taking a lot longer. Lots of days spent painting, ripping things out, laying floors and so on. So far the only thing we have had to hire out is someone to open up 2 walls and eventually we will have our electrical work all redone in our kitchen. Other than that, it will be all on us. We are excited though. It has been fun, stressful and a whirlwind honestly.
So that is our update here but be sure to keep checking our blog out because we plan to add lots of progress pictures and D.I.Y’s here! I’m excited to be back, I hope y’all are excited too!
