A Place to Call Home


Hacienda Retreat Gated Courtyard Desert Oasis

We’ve had some reasons to celebrate around here. For one, today makes it exactly one week since we received the keys to our new house. After an arduous, year-long search praying our hearts out for a place to call home, we are finally blessed with one just in time for the fall, my favorite season. Don’t they say, ‘third time’s a charm’? Well, this is our third home of our married life, so let’s hope so!  

Three words to describe this 21-year-old new baby: inviting, secluded, and a retreat. As of today, we’re starting the process of giving her a much-needed face lift to have her looking her best in no time, and of course, I’ll be taking you through the renovation process. The idea that it’s not brand new makes me excited, for it gives us the opportunity to upgrade it just the way we like, and make it our own. I can’t wait to see our vision for this place realized so I can finally get back to doing the things I love most in life: entertaining friends, hosting happy hours, having high tea parties and spending time gardening, slowly turning the backyard and courtyard into an oasis.
I look forward to chronicling the before and after updates, as we go through the process of making this new space home! Eek! So EXCITED!
Have a wonderful and safe week!
