I have SERIOUSLY missed you.
If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been MIA from Clyde’s Corner for the last few months. Dylan and I have had some BIG life changes that have required most of our time and efforts– I will definitely be sharing more on this in posts to come 🙂
In one of my most recent blog posts I mentioned that Dyl and I were leaving San Francisco but I didn’t share where we were headed (mainly because I didn’t want to jinx it), well…. Arizona, we’re back baby!!
Dylan and I are both from Arizona (we met at Arizona State during undergrad, go Devils!) and all of our family, excluding my sister (cue the uncontrollable sobs), live in the area. Moving back here was always in our long-term plan but due to the Covid19 Pandemic, and Dylan’s new ability to work remotely, we were able to move back much sooner than we anticipated. YAY!
We drove from San Fran to Phoenix back in June to look for houses– we actually thought we would be able to find one (make an offer, and have it accepted) in ONE week. HAHA. I’m literally laughing out loud as I type this because I now realize how absurd that thought was #firsttimehomebuyers.
Our one-week trip turned into a full month of home searching– we had to order clothes online and have them delivered because we had been living in the same five t-shirts day after day. Just to be clear…I’m not complaining about the shopping, I would never do that 😉 . On top of our unexpected trip extension, the housing market in Phoenix is INSANE right now. I’m talking hardcore sellers market with bidding wars on every. single. house. So that was fun.
Thanks to our awesome real estate agents and my incredibly patient husband (this girl can be a tad picky) we found our perfect home! Dylan and I still wake up every morning in complete shock that we get to call this place home.
Now I’m ready for the temps to cool down so we can start to enjoy the best part about living in Arizona, the nine months of perfect weather and outdoor living. Bring on the Fall weather and toasted marshmallow season!
[Side Bar] get ready for some Fall overload on Clyde’s Corner peeps. It’s happening.
Once our offer was accepted, we rushed back to SF and packed up our entire apartment in less than two weeks. If you’ve seen my Photo Tour of Our SF Apartment post, you know that we didn’t have that much to pack up–if you missed it, you can check it out HERE!
Overall, our move went pretty smoothly and we couldn’t be happier in our new home. Now that we are somewhat settled I am SO excited to be back blogging 🙂
I have a ton of fun things to share with you in the upcoming weeks! I hope you guys like home renovations 😀 We may or may not have taken on some projects with this house (spoiler alert, we totally did).
What you can expect to see coming up on Clyde’s Corner:
- Before & Afters of all of our home renovations (I’m SOO excited to share with you)
- How I’m decorating & organizing all of our new space– the word space is brand spanking new to our vocabulary
- Tons of new recipes
- And so much more ❤
