Everyday Light Life: Lately



I haven't been accidentally neglecting this space. I've been purposely avoiding it. A few months ago, I set down my camera, set aside my blog, and dropped all my personal projects in order to find perspective and clarity in my life. Posting has been sporadic because I just needed some breathing room. I wrote about this on a recent post on Instagram, but to summarize, I found that setting aside creative endeavors only caused the usual chaos in my life to feel completely unmanageable. So little by little, I'm making space in my life for these forms of expression. But there have been some pretty big changes in the months since I last blogged regularly, and I thought this might be a good time to catch up. Here are a few things you might've missed if you don't follow me in Instagram:

I have pink hair now
Oh yeah. It's a whole thing... I've even been stepping outside my style comfort zone and wearing pink. I'm convinced I was supposed to have been born with pink hair. You can follow my attempts on Instagram with the hashtag #adventuresinwearingpink. You can find out more about the products I use to maintain my pink hair by using the hashtag #everydaylighthair.


We're selling the #AhlgrimHaus
This is still a tender subject for me, because it's really difficult to say good bye to such a gem of a home, but the reality is that we need to move on. We listed the house For Sale By Owner at the beginning of May. After two days, two showings, and two offers, we were under contract and stuffing our belongings into moving boxes. We're under contract to buy a new home, but it's an uncertain deal at the moment, to be frank. It's been a stressful couple of months, because apparently it's difficult to get a mortgage on a new home when you own several properties already. Which leads us to our next development...


We're house flippers now
So you may or may  not know that my husband and I own a small leasing and management company. But this year, we officially (and successfully) made our foray into the world of house flipping. We've finished one and are in the process of selling it, and already have our second one nearly finished. It's been a goal of ours for a few years now, so it's really exciting to finally be stepping further into that role. You can follow those misadventures using the hashtag #flippingthe918 on Instagram.


I guess that's kind of it for now. I feel like There are some really big things on the horizon, but we just can't touch them yet. Right now, there is a lot of trusting in God's plan and holding on for dear life. I'm glad to be back, and I hope you'll stay with me.
