You might have caught it on my Insta-story, but we're going to be moving into a house! So actually this is a house that my mom purchased as a place for her to stay when she's in California (currently she still lives in Hawaii) and she's planning to live part time in both places. I'm very excited to be moving back into a house, though I really do like living in a trailer. I'll miss trailer life for sure. But I'm willing to give it up if it also means I get to have a blog office (which I'm calling a bloffice). Currently my stuff is split between the trailer and the Airstream garage and I do most of my blog work at the garage. Nothing wrong with that but I can't wait to have a designated space for all my clothes and a chance to see it all in once place so I can organize it better.
I also look forward to but also dread having to fully furnish a house again. When my husband and I first bought a place, we decked it out and bought a lot of stuff. When we downsized to a trailer, 85% of that went to Goodwill and it made me realize how much stuff I had purchased in just 5 years and how much money I wasted. This is what probably fueled my mindful consumption goals (not that I'm there yet, but I'm working on it). For this house we're hoping to buy just the essentials and to purchase some things secondhand (though I'm wary of secondhand furniture in general because of an incident with bed bugs once on the East Coast--seriously it made me think it was not worth getting secondhand furniture). So we'll see. I'm okay if the house looks sparse because who knows, if I can't handle living with my mom again, moving back into the trailer is plan B.
This also means I'll be changing my blog name at some point (hopefully by the end of the year) since I won't be a wife in a temporary-house anymore. I've been thinking about a name change for awhile now since I'm not really a fan of this current name. It was just something I came up with because this blog was going to be a log for my year as a temporary housewife. I'm really not the housewife type nor does it reflect what I'm really blogging about (fair fashion, zero waste goals, mindful consumption goals, etc.). Don't know what I'm going to change my name to yet but I'm open to ideas!
