From finishing the Hacienda Hideaway to welcoming our baby boy, 2023 has been a milestone year full of personal growth, renovation highs + lows, and sleep deprivation.
Before jumping into the new year, I like to reflect on how far we’ve come over the last 12 months, and set goals for the new year. This year, I’m recapping the highlights from each month in 2023 (both project + personal). Keep reading til the end for some exciting news!
Shared our Holiday Home Tour. Revealed the Hacienda primary bedroom and bunk room. Posted the final Hacienda Home Tour. Watched Esmé in her first ballet performance opening for the nutcracker (a personal highlight).
What’s coming in 2024?
I know I’ve said this every year, but we are actually finally finishing our own laundry room, ASAP. It has looked like this all year, and we’re both so ready to be done!
We’ll be working on it all month long, and hopefully revealing it by February.
On the personal side, we plan to travel more this year—family trips to Europe, Alaska, North Carolina are on the list. After a year of working long hours and at home with a newborn, we are itching to explore and take the kids on adventures.
And in other exciting news… a few months ago, we purchased another house! Meet our newest project:
We haven’t done any work on it yet, but this will be another investment property and future vacation rental. If you didn’t want the Hacienda Hideaway content to end, you’re in luck, because there’s a whole lot more coming in 2024!
We are ready and excited to tackle this next chapter, armed with new skills and lessons learned from our last renovation. Stay tuned for a full house tour and our design plans soon. I hope you’ll enjoy following along on this new journey with us! Cheers to a fresh start,
