Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetIt’s been awhile since my last blog post and I apologize. Things have been so busy over here and I just felt that a little break from blogging was needed. I always told myself that this blog of mine would come strictly from my heart and I never wanted to feel like it was something I was forced or had to do. And I didn’t want to bore you guys with any blah content. ha! Anyway, with that being said I’m back in action with tons of inspiration, a food series that will be making its debut this fall, and A HOME! Yes! We finally found a perfect little starter home for us here in North Dakota and as of last week, it is finally OURS!

As most of you already know, Jacob and I had been actively searching for a home since we moved to North Dakota. With rent prices up here being rather insane, we figured we would be better off to invest and finally buy our first home. We have really grown to love Bismarck and so far, this summer has just been the icing on the cake. The milder weather, long days, and small-town feel North Dakota brings has been so nice to for our little family. Jacob loves his job here and this Fall I will began teaching a few classes at a local college. I’m quite excited! So now that we are finally getting settled and have a home I thought I would share our little home buying experience with you guys!
