Hello, my pretties! ♥

A lot of you have sent sweet messages congratulating us on the purchase of our new home and I cannot thank you enough for all the love and kindness you constantly show us! I have been dying to share with you more about our new house. I want to do it very slowly and take my time, so AndrΓ©s (a.k.a. The Mr.) & I came up with the idea of a home decor series for the blog: 415 Vista Rd.

By the way, the name of this new series is not our real address. I say this because friends & family were worried about us sharing too much. We value our personal privacy + are always concerned with safety for our boys. So, we came up with this name instead. This way, whenever you see the series name on the title, you'll know it's a house-related blog post.

But... I am holding back. A LOT. Buying a house is a very personal decision and many variables come into play when making a purchase of this magnitude. So, in all honesty, I'm a little nervous about sharing our new home with you. This is our sanctuary & is sacred to us. I promise, however, I will share with you little by little and room by room how we transform this house into our home. All I ask of all of you is that you remain respectful of our space and family.

I know a lot of you have been very curious about how the house looks, what plans we have and what we're doing to it. You will see everything as it changes. I don't want to bombard you with a bunch of photos of the house. Instead, I want to take you on a journey with us about our new life as homeowners, new lessons we are learning, the struggles we face as well as all the fun things we get to do to the house with decor & style. I truly hope it will be just as exciting for you to read as it is for me to write about it. Believe me -- there is plenty to share!

But before we begin with all the pictures of the house and the home decor blog posts, I want you to know this: We are not sharing our home with you to boast or brag. We made a tremendous amount of sacrifices in order to achieve a goal we set up for ourselves as people and as parents. There was a plethora of boring weekends, more no-buy months than I care to admit, and stretching of money in every single little thing we could think of. We got really creative when it came time to buckle up and get our savings in shape for home-buying. Both The Mr. & I come from humble beginnings. Our parents did the best they could with what they had at the time. So, now it's our turn to do the same for our boys in hopes that they can do better than us when they grow up.

This is also why we're sharing with you! We want to show you that no matter where you come from, as long as you're willing to work for it and not give up, you can achieve whatever you set your mind to. We hope these posts are not only entertaining but also motivational and inspiring for you to keep working towards making your dreams a reality!

This is a fresh unexplored journey for our little family and we're happy to take you along. So, stay tuned for all the new things coming to the blog in the very near future. And, once again, thank you for all the incredible amount of love you send our way. It makes us so happy you're happy for us! 

See you around here very soon,
