Resurrection and Changes

by Shelly


Well, I think it’s safe to say that I basically fell off the edge of the Earth for six months. Life got a bit crazy the end of September/beginning of October and there was a lot going on in our family life that I wasn’t able to talk about…until now.  Some good, some bad.  But let’s just talk about the good, shall we?

As of February, my husband and his business partner have sold their business to a very well-known, amazing fitness centered company in the San Luis Obispo area. So what does that mean for the Van Rozebooms? Well, we’re moving to Central California!  This is a HUGE change for all of us….new school for kiddo, moving my business, hours away from all our friends and the life we currently know. It’s going to be a shake up for sure. We’re excited to get out of the Los Angeles area however. I’ve been here all my life and never went away to school or any of that. So this…So Cal that is…is ALL I know!  My husband is from the Central Valley originally, so we’ll be closer to his parents, family and friends which will be nice.

We’ve already bought a house in the city of Pismo Beach which is very close to where the hubs will be working in San Luis Obispo.  It was important for both of us to still live near the ocean and Pismo fit the bill for us. We also found an amazing house, with really great bones and a beautiful ocean view! You cannot buy that kind of place for under a million (heck a couple million!) where we currently live, so we sort of jumped at the opportunity. The house was originally built in 1991 and hasn’t been updated since. So we are gutting it….new kitchen, new baths, flooring, skim coating walls…all that fun stuff!  Eventually I’d love to also do all new windows and a revamp of the outside, but in due time.  Here are some of the major rooms and the exterior before we started construction….

So needless to say I will be sharing LOTS of before and afters of this house on the blog. It’s just going to be such a fab transformation. Tomorrow I’ll be back with the plans for the kitchen. It’s been a bit of a head scratcher to rework it, but I think we’ve finally come up with a good plan.

 
 

Sorry for the looonnng hiatus!!
