Hello + Verdict

Hello house.

Today was the second morning we woke up in our new house.

It still doesn’t feel fully real. Until I walk downstairs and see all the boxes of our stuff yet to be unpacked.

I love everything about our house. Well, except for the sink in the downstairs bathroom that has no water pressure and dirty water. But we’re working on fixing that.


I can’t wait to share all our future projects with you.

We have plans to build some outdoor furniture.

We have plans to add a pantry to the dining room.

We have plans to paint the dining room, guest room and office.

We have plans to build a craft table for the office.

We have plans to finish + seal the back deck.


And this is only a start of our list. So believe me, there will be plenty of home decorating, building and “how-to” posts to come!

(Progress pictures coming soon!)

Speaking of which, thank you for all your votes and comments on the future of Savvy Eats!

The thought of changing my blog to Savvy Living makes me a little sad for some reason. I think I have an (irrational?) attachment to my blog name and don’t want to give it up. And as Dan pointed out, I have no idea how long I’ll want to write about home projects. I could just be especially excited about it right now because we just bought the house.

I have a feeling blogging about home projects will become a new passion, but I don’t want to rebrand until I know for sure. Besides, I am so slammed with Savvy Blog Services work right now that I don’t have time to do my own rebranding anyways!

So here’s the verdict:

For now, Savvy Eats stays the way it is, and I’ll had a “Savvy Home” category. In a few months, I’ll re-evaluate.

If blogging about home projects has become a new passion, I’ll consider rebranding to Savvy Living, and work my own blog into my Savvy Blog Services schedule.

Sound fair?

Good. πŸ™‚

I’ve been completely out of the loop because of the move. How are you all? Any great blog posts I may have missed?

    Don’t be sad. I don’t see why you have to change at all. Why can’t you just have a Savvy.com. With an Eats section. And a Living section. You don’t have to love one more than the other πŸ™‚
    But I will still love Savvy either way! Good luck on your journey and remodels!

    I think if it feels wrong for you to change the name right now, then you shouldn’t. If and when you do, you should be excited about it! Also, I sent you an email about web design services! I hope to hear back from you soon πŸ™‚
