Hello frans. It’s been awhile since I’ve published a post because I’ve been super busy with life. I thought I’d let y’all know of all the changes going on around here, starting with my career change. I am so excited to tell y’all that I’ve accepted an international sales position at a company that my dad has worked at for years. It was time for a change and luckily I was able to make that happen. I am so thrilled to start this next chapter.
It just so happens that the day I received a job offer, a sweet couple decided they wanted to purchase our home after it had been on the market for 5 months. It’s a little funny how things happen because I’ve been praying for change and God just started laughing at me and then answered both of my prayers.
I had a week off between both jobs so I packed up our 1800 square foot house and began speaking with our lender, selling realtor and land buying realtor. I also had to do the annoying switchover of all our services from Hope Lane which was not fun. Needless to say, my week “off” was a lot of work.
My husband and I are living in a brand new duplex while our house is being built, which is only supposed to take 5 months. It is the cutest little place and we truly believe that it has all happened in God’s timing. I mean, the duplex is still being built and will be done the same week that we are moving in. That is great timing if you ask me.
We are going to be so busy this summer with our professional lives (starting a new job is tough), our social life (we’ll be at a lot of rodeos) anddd building our home. I’ve heard if you can make it through building a house together, you can make it through anything. We’ll have to meet with the builder weekly to go over where we want this cabinet and that light switch, and honestly I am so excited about that. I love seeing a project come to life.
Also, fun fact- the land we bought is near a Google facility in Oklahoma and we’ve heard that Google pretty much funds the school there which is awesome news. The Oklahoma education system needs to be updated so it’s nice to know that when we have kids they will get to attend a school that is well taken care of.
My goal is to keep y’all updated as we build the house. I think that’ll be super fun to look back on when it’s all said and done. I’ll leave our house plans below to kick this party off. Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss a single step in the process.
