Little house + PB&J's

We've been in our new place for just about 5 months now and it's been really great. Paul and I are constantly saying how thankful we are to have ended up here and how it feels like it's been out home for years. Not only has our little home been a lot of fun but it's really awakened a lot of energy and joy in our marriage. Not to say that our marriage wasn't joyful before but we are more active together and purposeful with the time we spend with each other. This house inspired us to buy beach cruisers, go for jogs, take a ladder ball or corn hole work break, go to the beach on a whim, or take drives on the PCH, garden together. All in all life seems more full together than it did before. A couple days ago I was feeling in a rut while editing a film, I came out of the office and into the dining room where Paul was also editing.

Side note, we can't work in the same room, haha. We realized this AFTER we bought matching desks for our office; thinking we could be that cute couple working side by side. NOPE, not us. So now there's my desk and then another sad lonely desk that gets piled with papers. 

I just needed to get out of the house and take a break so I talked Paul into going for a run on the boardwalk and then eating PB&J sandwiches on the beach. Totally random but it just felt like the best thing ever at the time. So we did! Dropped everything and took a break together; something we wouldn't have done before this little house. I see us here until it's time for us to move forward in purchasing our first home. For now I hope that time doesn't come for a couple years but life here is really happy!


  1. So fun! Those types of daily breaks are important to reconnect - they make life rich :) :)

  2. You guys are so cute. I'm glad this house has been a blessing for you guys!

  3. So cute! Would love to be able to get up and walk away from work for a little bit! And take a walk on the beach too! #jealous
