It’s beginning to feel like the neverending countdown.

The blog posts have been lagging a bit as the beach house has become all-consuming right now as we spend every weekend out on the coast getting ready.

An Update on our Airbnb Beach House!

Paul and I bought a new construction home on the Oregon Coast to rent out as an airbnb about 2 months ago and we are now roughly 6 weeks away from our beach house being complete!

It’s all happened so fast.

My New Home Essentials

Hello!

It’s been awhile since I’ve had some time to sit down and blog – because moving pretty much takes over your life… even when you’re just going 6 blocks up the street.

Paul and I have said goodbye to The Pearl District, but we’re still in Northewest Portland and loving our new apartment after we realized how much we needed a door and some division of space. (more…)

Come join me and Jenni Bost of A Well Crafted Party as we host a fun networking night out for local Portland Bloggers + Creatives in collaboration with Room & Board in The Pearl District.

I’m super excited to be partnering up with this modern furniture brand as I’ve been eyeing a few pieces for our apartment and airbnb beach house. Their space in the Pearl is inside an old renovated and revitalized warehouse and it’s stunning.

We will have lots of snacks, goodies and drinks along with a chance to chat with local creatives from the Portland area. To RSVP, please email Lisa Hill via the address above and let us know if you’ll be joining us for this free event!

Hope to see you there!
