Home Sweet Home! The time has finally come! We are in the midst of building our house, and we couldn’t be happier! If you know me, it would come as no surprise that I have already ordered our moving announcements for our new home… even though we aren’t living there yet! I wanted the moving announcement card to be just as special as our home and as meaningful as the story that led us to where we are today…
As many of you know, Rob and I have been living in Minneapolis for several years in an apartment with a view of downtown Minneapolis. It has always been a dream of ours to own someday. This last June, we made the leap to search for our future home. We began looking at existing houses for sale, but we never felt as though it was HOME. Rob and I would walk through and love parts of each home, but it never was perfect for us. I will be honest.. I was pretty impatient during the process of the search. Rob, however, wouldn’t settle for anything other than what was right for us. (thanks, Rob!!) During our search we saw a piece of land in a new development and envisioned our place there; our future home. It all felt right! After a few weeks of praying, asking for wisdom and checking the finances one more time, we decided to say YES together to signing the papers for our forever home. We were going to BUILD our first home together!
Rob and I spent an afternoon in July picking out everything from the counter tops to the flooring. We chose mostly natural earth tones with classic details to give our house a timeless appearance. Rob not only picked out the exterior of our home, but also the fireplace finishes. He proved to be quite the interior designer!
We are now at the halfway point of the build, and we regularly visit the home to check up on the progress. As of now, we are projected to move in by the beginning of December! Once we move into our home, Rob and I are most excited to host friends and family. Our moving announcements were really important to us because they represent our story, and the importance this new home is to the Mahlum family.
I was really excited to work with Basic Invite to create personalized moving announcements to send to all of our friends and family that truly represented us. I loved that there were unlimited color options, and that I was able to order a print sample before ordering my set of cards. The cherry on top for me was adding gold foil on our moving announcement cards to add a perfect touch!
