The Next Chapter

Hey y'all! Remember me?
A bloggy break for the past 4 weeks could not have came at a better time. Mine and Kev's lives have been completely flipped upside down, but we are almost on the other side of this tornado that swept us up and away from the heart of the bluegrass state.
It's safe to say we aren't in Kansas Lexington anymore.
Let me catch y'all up to date - long story short
- hubs got a new job in Cincinnati, Ohio causing us to relocate
-we planned on putting our house on the market and Kev would commute back and forth until we sold our home and found a new one
-yeah that plan didn't work because we put our house on the market and it sold in 24 HOURS?!?! say what?!?
(lex girls - Miss Dana is the real deal. do yourselves a favor and use her for all your real estate needs. you will not be sorry!!!)
-our buyers wanted us out in 7 days. (ummm excuse me?!?)
So in less than a week we
-packed up our entire house
-moved into a hotel with our fur babies
-closed on our old house
-and put an offer on a new house
I am exhausted just thinking about it!
We closed on our new house last Friday, but are still living the hotel life which has officially started to take it's toll on me, Kev and the dogs.
We went ahead and decided to re-do hardwood flooring, lay new carpet and paint before we moved all of our stuff into our new home. The house is only 4 years old, but my husband gave in a little on this one. I know ....I'm a total brat!
We are hoping to move into to our new home this weekend.
So much has happened in the past 4 weeks and I can't wait to share it all (bare with me as some of it is for personal documentation).
Where are we living, you ask ??? Well I am a Kentucky gal through and through and I told hubs I just didn't think I could cross the Ohio border. Although, a cute home in Hyde Park was so tempting, but my blood bleeds blue ya know?!?
(No offense to my Ohio girls out there - ps I can not wait to meet some of you soooooo soon!!!)
So Kev and I are officially in the greater Cincinnati area, specifically in the Northern Ky part.
Our adorable town is called Union and we are semi-obsessed with it. It's super close to Florence Y'all! (inside joke for us Kentucky folk)
We are in love with the rural/country/backwoods feel to it, but still have all of Cincinnati at our fingertips.
Kevin and I both have the best feeling in our guts about this move. We feel like we are moving into a home that we could potentially stay in for a long, long time. That's such an awesome feeling. We both feel like we bough the home that we will raise our children in one day. It's been overwhelming, emotional, stressful, exciting, sad and happy all rolled into one.
But Bottom line - this was a great decision for the both of us. We just know it. We are both looking forward to what the future holds.

We are ready for the next chapter - BRING IT ON!

Welcome to NKY! I don't blog, but enjoy reading yours! I also moved to Cincinnati (technically Ft. Thomas, KY) from Lexington, and just could not get myself to actually reside in Ohio. If you need a taste of Lexington, Sundy Best is playing at the Southgate House Revival in Newport, KY tonight at 8:30. My girlfriends (mostly UK grads) and I are going if you would like company. My email address is sarahbethUK at gmail dot com if you are interested or just have any general questions about the area. :)
