We Bought a House!

Real Estate - PropertyEscrow closed on our new Gig Harbor property yesterday and we’re officially homeowners again!!⁣

Since we moved from California, it took four months of looking in person, 11 months of looking online 🤪 and dozens of blue shoe bootie/mask-covered Covid showings to find this home — but we did it! Thank you for sharing in all of it with us 🏡.


Family - RecreationHere’s a look back on just some of the houses that didn’t make cut before we found the one we’d call our own! Between perfect houses that faced busy roads, to not-so-perfect houses with major issues, and properties with no wired internet to even the one we got outbid on – house hunting during Covid was, um, well it was sure a journey to put it politely 🙂

Now, on to the next chapter.

… And that brings me to: The Remodel. Before we move in, we’ll be redoing the kitchen and the floors. Make sure to check in on all the progress over on Instagram.

  1. Hi Tonya – I stumbled on your blog via Facebook and surprised that we both recently moved to GH from Paso Robles. My husband and I moved in March 2020. We love it here. I just wanted to say hi from your former life. Looks like you are doing well. Cheers
