WE BOUGHT OUR FIRST HOME!!

Jessi Malay's Family

Welcome to our new home! G and I are still pinching ourselves right now! It’s just insane to me how quickly life changes… 1 year ago, our heads were in a completely different place. We were not married yet, no baby, and living out of our suitcases, working from the road. Obsessed with our jobs, all we focused on was which trip we were going on next, fashion weeks, I preoccupied myself with the little things and blew way too much money on designer bags and shoes.. Just before we found out we were expecting, I remember thinking to myself a lot how ready I was for the next chapter of life… The blogging world can be so catty and competitive and I could feel myself getting wrapped up in the pressures of it all.

G and I had started really discussing the future, what was ultimately most important to us, what we’ve always valued in life, and what we would like to accomplish in the next 10 years. It came down to family. We started talking about marriage, thinking about how and where we would possibly like to have a wedding, and then…surprise! I was pregnant! Every part of me knew our baby was a gift and a message from God. G and I already loved each other so much, and getting pregnant set us on a clear path to making those long term dreams a reality. We quickly shifted our priorities so we could feel prepared to welcome our little girl and be the best parents we could possibly be. We started working hard, even harder than before, but instead of feeling stressed out about it and down on myself from time to time, we worked with a new purpose, a new goal, and the motivation of doing it for our little girl that was growing inside of me made it all even more positive and exciting!

Owning a home, having a house for Alessandra to grow up in was a huge part of our new goals. We started house hunting like crazy people! I would literally sit on Zillow from morning to night, studying all of the different neighborhoods and properties, their school districts, and trying to figure out what kind of home would really be best for our new family. We wanted to live somewhere where we could easily walk out the front door and go for walks in the neighborhood, somewhere where there’s a sense of community, parks, and ideally close enough to my parents so they could see her often. I’ve always loved Spanish architecture, but G and I both prefer more modern interiors, a combination that’s very hard to find! We searched like crazy, only to be outbid and disappointed. Then one day, I saw a rendering of a new construction…it was kind of odd because that’s not usually what you see on Zillow. G and I decided to do a drive by and figure out what the situation was… Sure enough, it was a brand new Spanish home, in a beautiful old neighborhood, not far from where I grew up…seemed too good to be true, but we immediately called the realtor to set up an appointment.

When we first got to see the home, it was a completely blank canvas…Still in the process of being built, I could see why there were no offers yet, but for us, this open space was a dream! We knew we could customize it and make it ours, a place that really felt like home.

For months now we’ve been a part of the completion process…picking fixtures, marble for the countertops and walls of the kitchen, even these hand painted tiles around the door and steps! It’s been so much fun for us and also more work than we could’ve imagined. Now that the house is almost done, we wanted to finally share with you and welcome you in! One of the best parts about all of this has been getting closer and more open with all of you! So much of what we share now is our personal lives and family time, and the more we’ve opened up, the more you have too! Thank you for all of the amazing advice, personal stories, and for literally becoming an extended part of our family. We hope you continue on this journey with us, we love growing and going through life with you!
