This is a DIY blog, and for five years to the date almost (YAY!), we haven’t gotten too deep and personal about much and have kept it DIY and home design related. That doesn’t mean we have had it easy breezy 24/7, it just means for two folks who pour their home improvement hearts out, we keep everything else pretty close to the vest.
Moving to Nashville was a HUGE life decision that took a lot of weird exercise to get to. Almost three years ago we were packing up and ready to move to Los Angeles for all the wrong reasons, and then two years ago Richmond, VA was where we were house hunting pretty seriously. Making a decision was debilitating, so I put it all on Joey and he picked Nashville and I am so happy he did. We love our new home.
We have been here six months now, and a lot is happening. The DIY projects are being curated and scheduled. We actually set up a pop up shop for Rich Hippies at Old Made Good in East Nashville, and open our first full store front in East Nashville on November 1st. We will have our home goods line, children’s line and a host of brands we use and love at the shop. Interior styling and decor services will be available via the store as well. This + a new home + our really big news in the works with only 10 hours of reliable daycare each week makes for an interesting schedule.
With that being said (after the big ol’ break we took to get things lined up), we are ready to spill the beans.
We bought another house. Across the street.
This house needs a lot of love. It’s currently a duplex and our plan (as of now) is to turn it into an Airbnb. We are very, very excited. After blogging for five years and turning into a full-time career, we decided that opening up a storefront and keeping renovations and DIY projects alive was what’s int he cards for us. It truly makes us happy. We have never gotten too deep personally, like I started off mention with this post, but we are just so grateful for you guys who follow along and keep us dreaming and scheming of new projects and new ways to do things. Cheers to figuring more stuff out and sharing it with you.
