Hi everyone! Happy Monday (okay…you west coasters may be getting this before midnight so…just go with it!)!! I promised I had some news for today so I figure that I will start with the most pressing…here ya go. *And because all good blog posts have a picture..I’ll rope you into reading all of this with a picture of one of our cocker spaniels, Sophie. 🙂 hehhehe
1st: The studio
For those of you that do not know, we have been in our studio space for a little over a year now. It has been INCREDIBLE for so many reasons and we have loved it soooo much. It has provided a place for us to meet with clients. Its been a place that has FORCED me to separate my work from my home life. Its been a place to display albums and canvases full of images we are very proud of, all while giving us the opportunity to get to know our amazing landlords even better. HOWEVER, change is in the air! Last year when we opened the studio it gave us the opportunity to have something that was a tangible result of all our hard work from that last several years. But, while that was wonderful and I think necessary at the time, we are at a new place in our business and lives (with greater responsibilities…aka. having a growing business and a baby changes everything :)) and its time to move on. We have decided to bring our office/studio back home. We are taking meetings at our current space through the end of the the month and after August 31st, we will no longer be at our Barber Street location. This leads to the next item on our agenda…
2nd: The Home
Since I just mentioned that our studio is going to be moving back into our home, the main question has been, ” Where are you going to put it??!!” Good question. 🙂 We have prayed and thought and prayed and talked and have finally come to the decision that we are going to put our house on the market and buy a larger home. I hear its the PERFECT time to sell a house so… (okay, that was sarcasm!) Our house has been on the market for exactly 1 week now and we have already had a caravan of realtors & a family come look at our house and there is actually a family coming today too! So if you guys would, please be praying that someone sees our home and falls in love with it like we did! This was our first little home and we have so many memories here already, but there isnt a way for us to have our offices here AND have room to live. We have found a house that we LOVE that is just a mile from us now and our fingers are super crossed that its still on the market when our home sells. So, long story short…if you’re in the market for a one story, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cape cod with a GIANT fenced in back yard, a huge front porch, big back deck, hardwood, carpet, and tile floors, and 10ft ceilings with crown molding and pictures rail in the living room…call me! We will make sure to keep everyone updated so you know where to drop by once the new offices are set up! And no worries, we still have our office phone number so keep the calls coming! Now onto the next item…
