Home Sweet Home

My apologies for the blogging hiatus. Life has been quite busy this past week.  Last Thursday, Austin and I made our trip up to DC to find a place to live. After weeks of online hunting and stress, wouldn't you know it that Austin found the place we ended up signing THE DAY before our trip? Typical. 

Anyway, I'm so in love with our new little space. Our new digs are in Georgetown.  It is a neighborhood in the NW district of DC. If you've ever been to DC, you know how stinkin' cute Georgetown is. The location of this little row house is beyond ideal. We are a half block back from bustling M St, where there are hundreds of restaurants and boutiques. The fact that we get to call it home makes me crazy jump up and down just a little excited.

Here is an exterior photo. Interior photos to come once we are all settled in :)

 Georgetown is one of the oldest DC neighborhoods, as it was used as a port because of its close proximity to the river. (I may or may not have been doing "new town  research")  I am absolutely smitten by all of the charm that this area boasts. 

And of course we musn't forget..

This could get ugly.

Our "D-Day" is January 4th.  I have been packing and such to get us ready to load our life into a U-Haul trailer.  These last few days in Raleigh are bittersweet, but we are excited for new beginnings in DC.

I hope everyone had a beyond amazing Christmas and spent lots of quality time with family!




  1. You LUCKY thing! I used to travel to DC with work and I love it and MISS it! I love the Georgian style of the house you are looking it.

  2. Hi Katie!! Welcome to the blogging world :)
    What a quaint little place that is, I'm darn jealous to tell you the truth! Can't wait to see pictures, soon!! Is it sad that when I was little, my mom and I would pack in the car and tour model homes to dream and wish... ha.

    Anyways, it's great to "meet you" and I look forward to reading more posts soon!!

    P.S. Bailey is ADORABLE!
