This One Time At Our New House

I haven’t shared a post in almost two months. That might seem like a long time to you, but to me it’s been a whirlwind of minutes. I have lots of big news to share, and I also wanted to show you some snapshots from our new house so you can get an idea of some of the projects I might be tackling this year on the blog.

So, that news. As many of you know I have been the managing editor of Our Homes Magazine for the past several years. Not only has it allowed my love for design to flourish, but the job itself is just wonderful. However, all good things come to an end. I have decided to take a new job in communications with a really amazing company where I live. I am very pumped to take on this new challenge, and though I won’t be writing about interior design at work anymore, that means I have all the more creative energy to devote to The Crux in my off-time, so that’s really great news too.

Of course, between preparing for an interview, moving and wrapping up my current workload, and painting a 3000+ sq. ft. house, I really haven’t had time for The Crux. You’ll understand why when you scroll down to the photos. As soon as I finished painting I set to work on an interesting project I am almost ready to share with you (I’ll give you a hint, it revolves around another fireplace).

But mostly there was the cleaning, which I really can’t explain to you better than my series of horrified Facebook statuses.

Don’t mind the major typo. All typos are being put down to sheer exhaustion.

Then I broke my two favourite vases.


Then, we all got really tired and decided a nap was in order, except my toddler decided to draw on our sofa instead.



Oh, and then finally, the dishwasher caught on fire.


So you’ll forgive me, now knowing everything that has conspired against me, and seeing how I persevered.
