BREAKING NEWS: we're moving. to san francisco.


In about a week and a half I'll be putting all my stuff in a POD (or moving van?) and taking off for San Fran. Travis' job is transferring him to the new store they're opening in the heart of the city. I'm really excited about moving half way across the country to start a life with my husband, especially to SF; I've always had a soft spot for the West Coast. I'm still working on finding a second job there (Madewell is graciously accepting me with open arms, hey thanks guys!). Still, I'm searching for something that focuses on helping kiddos. If God provided me with that opportunity I would be beyond ecstatic but no matter where I end up I'm confident it's where He wants me. After all, we can serve Him wherever we are. Cool!

 I'm also interested to see what this does for Lo Maintenance. We'll finally have a place together that we get to decorate and make our own- our home. This means fun interior design posts! The new landscape means we get to do lots of exploring. Hello, Redwoods and Napa and Oakland and Carmel and lots of other cities! I'm mostly looking forward to late nights listening to our ever-growing vinyl collection, candlelit dinners to save energy, short showers to save water, a smaller wardrobe (a great friend recently introduced me to the marvelous Unfancy blog and Ms. Caroline's super cool take on how to build a wardrobe, can't wait to try it for myself), being cold a lot and seeing how Joseph reacts to being a small pup in the middle of a big city.

So I'll be road tripping with my ma, pa and pup. I'm sure we'll have like one, maybe two pictures from the adventure to share. Follow me on Instagram for more frequent postings from the road (@lo_maintenance).




Oh. P.S. I've started adding some blog pics (and some that didn't make the cut) to my Pinterest account, I'm sure you've guessed the name but just incase you're not in the mood for guessing games.. it's Lo Maintenance.

(p.p.s. my husband took these pictures)
