Moving To Magnolia.

The crazy thing about blogging is that you end up with this tangible archive of memories of things you’d otherwise likely never have documented.  Over the last ten years (since I graduated college), I have moved a zillion times.  And here in this space, I’ve documented quite a few of them:

So here is how the last week or so has played out.  Last Wednesday, we officially closed on our Magnolia home.  It was a wild day of last minute meetings, racing to signing appointments, and general chaos – but by the end of the day we had keys to our new place in hand and nothing else mattered. 

As is tradition for us when moving, we celebrated by having a picnic dinner (Vietnamese takeout this time, mmmm) on the floor of our empty house.

IMG_7060 (640x427)

After a year of hoping and waiting, it felt so surreal to finally be in there and have it be ours

IMG_7061 (640x424)

All three of us ran around like kids exploring the new space, opening every nook and cranny, and enjoying all the warm sunshine pouring in the windows.  It felt so right.

Capture

Celebratory photos at the door before we left!

IMG_7068 (419x640)

IMG_7074 (425x640)

Even though it was pushing bedtime and we still had to drive 40 minutes back to Kirkland, we decided celebratory cupcakes were definitely in order. 

IMG_7076 (427x640)

Cullen did not seem to mind.

IMG_7079 (640x427)

The next day was another busy one.  We were out the door immediately to drop Cullen at a friend’s house, run over to the new Magnolia house to meet carpet installers, and then head to the hospital for my 20-week ultrasound.  Even though it was hard to squeeze in, I am so glad we got the carpet replaced before we moved in so we didn’t have to move furniture and things around again post-move.  It is so soft and fabulous!

IMG_4203 (480x640)

Thursday night my mom arrived to help, and that’s when the real madness began.  On Friday we started working around 7am and basically never stopped.  I made one last messy pancake breakfast for all of us before we got to work, and then we got moving.

Capture

My mom’s job was to play with Cullen and keep him happy (and safe) while Casey and I tore the house apart.  He is totally in love with her, and was very happy to show her all his new skills and things.

IMG_7107 (427x640)

While they played, I boxed up most of the second floor. 

IMG_7102 (427x640)

IMG_7108 (640x427)

IMG_7110 (427x640)

The dogs just sat there looking at us like you have got to be kidding me.  We counted that night, and realized that this new house will be Huey’s 10th, and Indy’s 8th – they are pros by now.  If only they’d help pack some boxes!

IMG_7114 (427x640)

We worked pretty much nonstop until our bodies were totally drained.  Casey took a car load of breakables over to the new house, and ran around doing all the wall patching and touch up paint.  By dinner time, we were all ready for a break and some fresh air.

We headed down to our very last Friday night Juanita Beach market.  I’m sure we’ll go back at some point to visit with friends we made over there, but it felt a little emotional to go there for the last time as residents.

IMG_7116 (427x640)

Juanita Beach was probably my favorite thing in our old area, and Cullen loved going there to swing and dig in the sand.  The summer market was my favorite Friday night tradition!

IMG_7126 (426x640)

Good thing we will have lots of nearby playgrounds in our new neighborhood, just waiting for us to explore them. 

IMG_7127 (427x640)

Goodbye, Kirkland!  You are very pretty, but you were not right for us.

IMG_7137 (640x428)

IMG_7146 (427x640)

Saturday was moving day, and we were up and at ‘em around 5 to get started.  I’m planning to write a Babble post this week on tips for moving with toddlers, but let me just say – I do NOT know what we would have done without my mom.  Once our movers arrived, the house became total chaos, and he barely even noticed because he was so enamored by her (okay, and the iPad). 

IMG_7150 (640x427)

We also had the world’s BEST moving crew.  For this move, we used a local company – Adam’s Movers – and I have seriously never seen a crew work so hard.  They were literally running down the steps and up the ramp to the truck.  They pulled up at 8am and had our entire houses loaded and ready to go by 9:30 – it was nuts. 

IMG_7152 (640x427)

Cullen was into the giant truck.

Capture

And just like that, it was time to go!  I felt a bit emotional as we packed up and left our house.  Even though it wasn’t the right fit for us, we had a big year there and grew a lot as individuals and as a family.  No regrets.  (Okay, slight regret on the cargo shorts.  Hey, it was moving day.)

IMG_7155 (428x640)

IMG_7157 (640x415)

Our movers continued their amazing job and had us totally unloaded into our new place by noon.  I couldn’t believe it!  We even had time to take a break and go out for a sit down lunch.  We were all so tired and hungry – we needed it.

We spent the rest of Saturday settling in, unpacking boxes, and getting adjusted to the new space.  My mom is an animal and was determined that we were going to have all the major stuff done before she left.  The worst part is always the kitchen, right?

By Sunday afternoon we were in great shape, and ready to relax and have people over to see our new space.  Our gender reveal party was that evening!

IMG_7251 (427x640)

As timing would have it, Monday morning Casey was out the door at 4am to leave for a week-long work trip – so sad!  Luckily we got to hold onto Grandma for a few more hours, and she took the red eye home on Monday night. 

IMG_7266 (427x640)

So this week, it’s been just me and C settling into a new space and learning the ropes of our new neighborhood.  It feels great to be here, but we are very ready for dad to come home and enjoy it with us (he gets in tonight – hurrah!).  We have really missed him!

Capture

So many of you have been asking for new house pictures and a house tour once we are settled in.  I have to be honest that I’m feeling a lot more private about our space and our home this time.  To keep it brief, we suffered some pretty major privacy invasions during our last home purchase and sale, and I’d like to minimize the risk of that happening again.  Of course, I know that sharing our life online opens us to some of that, but perhaps I (naively) also counted on the greater good of people. 

So while I will certainly still continue to share our adventures and many family photos, I don’t think I’ll be doing a formal tour of this house.  After all, this is the house where our children live, and the need and desire to protect them is our first priority.  This is also really important because Casey travels for work quite a bit, leaving me here on my own with kiddos (creepers beware – I am ready for you!). 

But I thought I’d show you two happy pups who are LOVING their new space.  I haven’t seen them this happy (or well behaved) since we lived in Charlotte on an acre in the woods.  They have so much more room to run and roam here, and they are acting like puppies again.

IMG_4251 (640x480)

So here we are!  One week in, and excited to get settled and finally plant some roots.  And a garden!

Oh, the new house sounds lovely! As for the electric coil stove… Oy vey. I got used to them. But I am soooooo looking forward to gas in the next house. sorry to hear you had creepers, gives me the heebie jeebies. luckily I have a vicious sounding dog… (he is a puggle) so while he may not physically harm someone, you would not know it from his bark. very protective when I am home alone.

Leah Reply:

I had a glass top electric stove for 13 years! It worked out really well (just converted to gas). I would suggest the glass top over the coils any day! It also worked well with our cast iron pans.

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

We have had glass-top before too! Definitely easier to clean, and can provide extra counter space when it’s not in use (or hot). Eventually we’d like to renovate the kitchen to look more like the original farm house style, rather than such a dark, modern look!

[Reply]

Stacy Reply:

I wish I could do gas stoves. My taste runs towards old homes that have them, but I am apparently allergic/sensitive to the chemical they add to the gas to make it smell so that you know when you have a gas leak. Such a pain. I love glass top stoves, but I have broken one with my cast iron, so I opt for coils.

Emily Malone Reply:

Same here. Our dogs go absolutely insane for any noises or knocks at the door. I would pick a different house! :)

The new house looks lovely – I’m so happy for you and your family! And I’m surprised (guess I’m a little naive myself!) to find out that you had your privacy invaded with your last move … how scary! I hope you’re settling in and able to get a little rest!

[Reply]

lisa fine     at 5:01 pm

Congrats on the new house! It kind of becomes easier each time, and kind of not. My fiance and I have lived in four places in the last year, partly because we like to try new locations, and partly because of circumstance (like relocation for jobs). If anything, packing and unpacking helps us throw and give away a lot each time.

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

YES! We have purged SO MUCH STUFF! This move involved three car loads to Goodwill and many items sold on Craigslist. Somehow we still keep finding more to get rid of, even though it feels like there should be nothing left! But packing/unpacking has become a quick process for us, since we’ve done it so many times now. Definitely one of the perks! Four in one year is more moving than me! :)

I loved the Magnolia neighborhood when I lived in Seattle. Hilly tho!!! Get those legs ready for lots of hill walking/running/biking!

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

I read this right after we got back from a walk and my legs were BURNING! Although most of Seattle is super hilly – hard to avoid! As I climbed a giant hill with the stroller I was thinking, “no way I could do this on a bike.” Haha!

Jaclyn     at 5:33 pm

I think it’s super creepy that public records of little ole me are available online for the world to see. I can’t even begin to imagine how concerned you must feel at times. I would have reccomended setting up some sort of trust so that your private information would be a little more difficult for creepers to find. Unfortunately, the Internet makes things too easy. Best of luck on your new home.

My favorite thing about moving is being able to run through the house when there is absolutely nothing in it! Nothing more fun than that. Especially since the rest of moving pretty much sucks!

And congrats on another boy–how exciting for you and Cullen!

Angie     at 6:18 pm

Its awful that you’ve had privacy issues. I understand wanting some sort of privacy. My husband travels all the time for work too. I love the view from your deck!

Leah     at 6:25 pm

Emily,

Best move story ever: happy pups, happy toddler, and time with your Mom!

For the past 2 months (we’re in the process of re-doing our kitchen ourselves) we have had what I fondly refer to as the “dish rack discussion.” Tonight as I read your post I was able to shout out to my husband: “See this, someone else has the same dish rack that I love and you hate.” :)

Thanks for sharing…and for helping me score one for the pro-bamboo dish rack department.

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

Haha this made me laugh bc when I put it out I turned to my mom and said. “how do we feel about the dish rack?” The thing is I don’t love having it out, but the alternative is dishes and towels all over the counter every day. I know I am not going to hand dry every dish as I clean it, so I have to be realistic about a functional solution. And I think the bamboo looks way better than wire or plastic. :)

[Reply]

Gabrielle Reply:

I’m seeing comments about your kitchen, but I don’t see anything in the post about the kitchen, or a dish rack, or electric coil stove. Did you remove the picture/caption? I did, however, see the picture of your mom helping you set up the kitchen on Instagram… maybe you posted that here to and removed it?

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

I had a few pictures of the house posted originally, but then got a number of emails from readers who had additional concerns based on some things they saw on other sites. Feels stupid, but I figured I’d just take them down to cover all my bases. Sorry for the confusion.

[Reply]

mia     at 6:29 pm

Yay! So happy yall feel settled and finally home! It stinks that Casey has to travel so much, but life is what it is at times. I know how ya feel…..minus the babies. The cupcakes and pancakes look yummy.

So sorry you have had to deal with privacy issues and creepers. That is part of why I have always been afraid to blog. I don’t know how bloggers do it and can still stay sane/ sleep at night. I can’t recommend a home secuity systems enough! Love the sense of comfort it provides. :) wishing you all the best!!

Meagan     at 7:04 pm

Oh so exciting! I had a big laugh with your comment about the dogs thoughts about another move. Too funny! I’m also really sorry about your privacy invasion! That is definitely not ok. I personally have always been scared something like that would happen to me so that’s why I never really share anything much person about myself on my blog. I really admire people like you though, who can find a happy balance, since I so enjoy reading!

[Reply]

Syndie     at 7:22 pm

Your new house is beautiful! I can tell how excited you are :). I am so sorry to hear that your privacy was invaded. That is nothing I would have expected and I totally understand your feelings on the issue! Crazy to think I have been reading your blog since your “car accident” in VA! So much has changed and I love seeing your new posts. Thank you for sharing with us!

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

Thanks for reading for so long!

Nikki     at 7:37 pm

Two questions:
1) Is Casey’s travel more difficult emotionally while you’re pregnant? I’m 23 weeks and my husband is in China right now; normally I miss him but right now I feel downright sad and emotional about him being gone.
2) On a more positive note, where are those cupcakes from? I feel like I’ve seen them on an episode from the Cooking Channel.

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

Casey’s travel is just a part of our reality, so I try not to let myself get worked up about it. Neither of us enjoys it, but we knew it was part of the job when we came out here, so we try to view it as something that allows us to live a nice life, rather than something to resent. That said, it is definitely not easy. It also depends on where he is. This trip was just to the midwest, but he’s been to China before too, and I’m always much more worried and lonely when he’s incredibly far away. Cupcakes are Trophy Cupcakes, and delicious! :)

[Reply]

Megan Reply:

I can relate to a traveling husband. Emily you have a really great outlook on it! My husband is a pilot so I knew what I was getting into when I first met him. We also moved away from family and when I was pregnant I would cry when he would leave for trips (total hormones). It’s given us amazing opportunities so I try and remember that when I am home alone with our son for days.
Nikki- don’t feel bad about being emotional- I’ve been there. Hope your husband gets home soon.

Anyways, congrats on the move! I absolutely love Seattle. We come to visit family at least once a year. That really sucks about your privacy. I’ve worried about how much information to keep off my blog and its relatively small. Thanks for being so open about how much you are sharing/keeping private! It helps to hear others opinions on the matter. Hopefully people can respect you and let you share what information you want! Ill keep reading as long as you are writing!

I’m not sure if I should be proud or embarrassed, but I knew I recognized that cupcake! Trophy Cupcakes was on Unique Sweets! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLTd7svhhOQ)

Julia     at 7:42 pm

Gorgeous house, Emily! Can’t believe you moved and got settled so quickly.

In regards to the privacy issue, that’s pretty creepy. Can I ask, though, given that you’ve had a problem, why you didn’t keep some more details about this move private? If I were in your shoes, I don’t think I would have shared more than the fact that I was moving and even kept the new area private. There’s just too many weirdos out there….one incident would be enough to have me setting up some additional boundaries for sure!

On a related note, has this had any effect on your thoughts about posting pictures of Cullen (and the new baby when he :) comes?) I love the peeks into other lives that blogs afford, but I sometimes wonder about the safety aspect of so much personal information being shared in one place…for me, I’d be really nervous having so many pictures of my kids out there if it was easy for people to also get other information about me like where I lived. Maybe it’s just me, I can’t really imaging having so many strangers know so much about my life, lol!

[Reply]

Julia Reply:

Just read that back and hope it doesn’t sound snarky, as that’s not how I meant it…just genuinely curious. I honestly don’t know how you do it, because being so open with strangers would be torture for me!

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

Not snarky at all – at least I didn’t take it that way. I actually DO feel like I kept details of this move private! I never mentioned our house was for sale or that we were moving until basically the week before it all happened. I mentioned our neighborhood name only because I knew it would become very obvious (to anyone local) as soon as we were here, based on surrounding things/restaurants/parks/etc. It also happens to be the largest neighborhood in Seattle proper, so knowing the name really doesn’t tell you much. I didn’t give any details about the new house like # of bedrooms, age/style/size of the home, etc. Unfortunately, property transfer records are public information, so anyone can find someone’s address if they really want to. I will say that it takes a special kind of asshole (sorry, it’s true) to go to the effort of looking it up and then sharing it on highly trafficked sites. And even creepier to then tour the open house of a blogger’s home.

My desire to protect Cullen and future kids grows every day, and weighs heavily on my mind. I honestly can’t tell you how much longer I will continue here. As far as photos go – I actually don’t worry about that quite as much. I figure with social media the way it is now, everyone’s life is just naturally a lot more public than it used to be. Whether it appears so or not, I am very very careful about what I share about my family, both here and in other SM outlets. This space probably captures about 20% of our life. The rest us for us to enjoy – (hopefully) privately.

Sharon Reply:

Hi Emily,
It makes me so sad that there are people out there who have absolutely no regard for others privacy and are willing to compromise their safety – enough so that you are considering pulling the plug on your blog. I am a long time reader (since your Flying Pig blog days with Lindsey!) and will be so sad to see you go if that time ever comes. I will miss following the adventures of you & your adorable family, but at the same time, I totally understand. Thank you so much for sharing all that you have these last few years. You are my favorite blogger by far :)

Hey Emily! I think it’s smart to protect yourself and your family. Take every precaution possible – I wonder if there are some good resources about protecting yourself while maintaining an online presence? I had my eyes opened a bit when we moved into our house last month (first time owning) and a cop ran a neighborhood watch meeting. She gave us a lot of good tips and scared a little sense into me. We can be so naive, but it’s SO important to protect our little ones!

[Reply]

Jennifer Reply:

Just curious, what tips did the cop share with you?

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

We have lived in a few major cities, so we are pretty cautious now (not that crime doesn’t happen in small cities too…). We are very mindful of locking doors/windows, we have a security system, we have a gun, and we have two dogs who are very protective of us. I typically feel very safe, but I also know it’s dangerous to lose awareness.

[Reply]

Anne Reply:

Maybe it’s because I’m not american, but reading “we have a gun” makes me feel very uncomfortable. I’m thinking, my god, security system, dogs, and everything is enough, no ? Cause with a kid, you hide the gun, so what’s the point of having it… Sorry, it’s so strange for my culture/values…

[Reply]

Margaret Reply:

Anne I don’t think that its just because you are not an american. I was exposed to guns a child, I work with many people who carry weapons as part of their job (I am a prosecutor, but I don’t chose to carry), WA is an open carry state so guns are pretty common around here, and I realized owning a gun does not make me feel “safer” at home, or at work for that matter. But, I think its a personal standard, and if it makes Emily feel safer, cool by me.

My grandfather kept the guns in a gun safe and the bullets in his safety deposit box when he was in the city. He taught his kids and grandkids to shot when we were on the ranch and I have always associated guns with hunting and being outdoors, not with personal safety. I carry when I am backpacking, sometimes, especially in Alaska and it makes me feel safer, but the vast majority of gun violence that I see at work has nothing to do with strange home invaders.

The funny thing about my job is that it makes me way more scared of drunk drivers, which are far more common and deadly than most of us realize, than random acts of violence, which are exceedingly rare. I want to say that over 90 percent of rape victims know their rapist, but I can’t recall the exact statistic. Most of us don’t like to think about the fact that its extremely likely if we are victims of violent crimes, the perpetrator will not be a stranger. Of course random acts of violence happen too, and we should be responsible with our personal safety, but at least in most American cities crime rates are at record lows.

I guess my point was Anne, I get how you feel, but I think that I have a somewhat typical American response, which is to all their own. Different things will make, different people feel safe.

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

Great perspective, Margaret!

[Reply]

Sara Reply:

It is NOT an American thing. She may have a gun, but that is not how it is done around here. I would never have a gun. Please don’t lump all Americans into gun-toters. Ugh.

[Reply]

Anne Reply:

Thanks for your response Margaret and Sara. What I was trying to say in a more simple way is that I never saw a gun in my entire life, I don’t know anyone with a gun, etc. I live in a very big city but here guns are linked to criminality and not personal protection… But I know it’s a sensible subject. And a more complex one also.// I remember the story of the blogger from Eat, Live, Run; her little brother was killed by his friend, by accident, in a house, with a gun, from a bad manipulation… This is just an example, but I would never accept a gun in my house, it’s like… visceral.

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

I think this is a really complicated (and personal) topic, and one I really did not intend to open up here. I actually did not grow up with or around guns either, and to be totally honest they make me somewhat uncomfortable. But all cultures and families are different, and Casey grew up in a much more pro-gun family. We do not know that it’s something we will keep long-term, but for now we aren’t concerned given our own safety precautions, and the age of our child.

I replied to the original comment, and this is not a conversation I intended to get into at all. We are not “gun toters” by any means. It is important to not make mass generalizations in general.

I love having had a peek into your days/weekends but also understand the importance of privacy for you and your family.
Three years ago I had a blog that I documented everything on and now I look back and wonder why I felt that need to divulge so much. My current blog is much more private and our life had changed so much in 3 years that I feel comfortable blogging again (i.e. we’ve moved, I don’t write about everything I do, where I am at that exact moment, when we’re going on vacation, etc.)
I’ll enjoy reading what you do decide to keep sharing. Congratulations on the move.

[Reply]

Kt     at 10:05 pm

I find these comments about safety and privacy really interesting! I really don’t mean this as a “holier than thou” type of comment, but I feel like where I live in Canada (in a big city) we aren’t as concerned about these things. I mean, obviously our gun laws are very different which results in a different crime culture. I just hate the idea of people living in fear. Of course Emily, I can understand where you are coming from. I’m glad that you are taking precautions that make you feel safer. I just don’t think I would EVER feel safer with a gun in my home.

On another note, I am moving in a few weeks and the fact that you could pack and move so quickly and efficiently is so encouraging! Thanks.

Hey Emily, I remember last time you moved you hired plastic moving boxes. Did you use them again this time? If not I wonder what your reason was for not using them again?

I’m moving in a month and have hired plastic moving boxes for my move. Something I thought wouldn’t be available here in Australia but surprisingly it is. Your thoughts on cardboard vs plastic boxes would be interesting.

I hope you are settling into your new house now.

thanks
Sally

Emily Malone Reply:

We looked into it for this move, but it was a lot more expensive than I had anticipated (last time we had a Living Social deal). I couldn’t justify spending $200 to rent boxes. :/ We have friends moving next weekend, so we got cardboard instead and then gave them all to friends to be reused.

Sally Reply:

Thanks Emily, yes that’s fair enough about the cost. I’ve only got a small house with just me so probably don’t need quite as many boxes as your family. :)

Wow– y’all are moving pros!! We’ve moved three times in the past five years, and I still feel like every time, we’re doing it new (and doing it wrong, ha).

That’s scary about the creepers. I know that must be rough, especially with your husband out of town so often.

I felt a tinge of pain when you wrote of your privacy issues. It is the sad danger of being public with your life. I feel honored you share your family with us.

Your posts bring back lovely memories of my daughter being little. She is now in college and I think in hindsight what a treasure your blog is. When Cullen and his litte brother are older they will have the most amazing treasure of your incredible love for them.

Thank you for sharing with us and I pray the trolls of the interwebs took your warning seriously. Don’t with a momma and two loyal dogs.

Congratulations. New house, new baby boy and many delightful and wonderful moment in the future. Yeah. I am just so darn excited for you.

Oh Emily, from one who has enjoyed reading your blog for a while now, I really am so sorry to hear about all of this privacy stuff. I had no idea any of that was being spoken about (did you delete the comments about it all? How did you know some creeper toured your house?? That’s too far!!).
Having said that, I truly enjoy reading your blog. Maybe now is a good time to take this private– you’ve met some great people through this blog who fully support you and who you are safe sharing with (me included!!) and would never creep into your reality. I know you make $ with page views, but honestly, your content really is no longer as much about cooking/fitness now as it is about your family. I think some people feel if you are making $ from us reading about your life, they have a “right” to look into public info about that life (I am NOT justifying it, but it is akin to the whole “celebrity/paparazzi thing). Perhaps if you went private, and invited us safe people, that would help you to feel better about things, and keep your personal private info off of the internet. Only then could you truly have control over it.
I must say, I have seen you in person at a park (twice!!) and, even though I enjoy your blog, I didn’t feel comfortable approaching you, because of the whole privacy thing.
Have a wonderful weekend!!

Your comment is kind of creepy… if you saw her in the park and you are “friends” why would you not say hi? Then referring to yourself as “safe”?

Sorry, you’re just making all kinds of “creeper flags” pop up for me.

[Reply]

wendi Reply:

How is that a “creeper flag”? I never claimed to be her “friend”, and this is exactly why I have never approached her (or any other blogger, or a celebrity that I recognize for that matter). I enjoy reading her blog and have ever since she moved to my city. She can post details about her life without having to worry about certain people (such as me) calling her neighborhood/house/gym, etc. out in public way, or worse, touring her open house. Had we conversed before, it’s one thing, but if you ask me, running up to someone that you recognize from the internet (or TV or movies) to say hello is pretty creepy. I’m a mom, I live in the same city, I homeschool my kids. We frequent parks, markets, museums and zoos.
I don’t consider bloggers, celebrities, or any other person that I know only virtually to be a “friend”. I do enjoy reading her blog however. Is that too creepy for you?

Emily Malone Reply:

Hey Wendi! Just finally catching up on all these comments and seeing you had a few responses. Hope there wasn’t a misunderstanding and you thought they were from me! I in no way consider myself to be a celebrity of any kind, and I actually love when people do stop and say hi! If you see us in the park again, please do. :) I love meeting other Seattle people, especially other moms!

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

Nope, never delete comments. Just all things that have gone on in the back end (and in my email). Some people are crazy. And yes, for some reason people think that any sort of monitization gives them rights to information and answers about things that would NEVER be public in a traditional work environment. Again – say hi next time! :)

It’s gorgeous and I’m so happy for you! I’m sorry about the invasion of privacy that previously happened; you are well within your rights to keep your home and your children safe!!!

Painting the cabinets is time-consuming, but easy to do well and it will change everything. I’ve done it myself to all the cabinets in my 115-year old home (but none of the cabinets were 115-years old!!) and I could point you to about one thousand how-to blog posts. When you want a face-lift without a whole kitchen overhaul (if you think you can live with the counters for longer than the cabinets), it’s not a bad project to take on, if you’re inclined.

I wish you and your family ALL the best there. I hope you are deliriously happy and get to stay a very long time!

[Reply]

Definitely a long term project, but I think it would be really fun to tackle ourselves! Lots of hard work for sure. Our house is very old too, and we’d like to preserve as much of the original charm as possible. :)

Aimee     at 10:54 am

Thanks for sharing about the privacy concerns! I’ve been going back and forth on how much to share online about our recent move. This seals the deal. Especially since I’m a single mom now, I think privacy has to take precedence over people’s (kind and concerned) curiosity.

[Reply]

Aimee     at 11:02 am

I would hate for you to stop blogging– I have been reading since you were wedding planning, and I’ve enjoyed seeing how this space and your life have developed across the years.
I wonder if a return to more of the food-focused blogging of yesteryear wouldn’t make more sense than going totally private. Your header suggests the blog is “a resource for healthy recipes, cooking tips, and inspiration for active living,” but lately you have been SO family focused. I get that priorities and foci change, but you have Babble, Twitter, Instagram etc to share ‘snippets’ of your family life– maybe having less space (in terms of word count etc.) would help limit some of the markers that can breach privacy.
For ex, here on the blog you list that you’ve closed this past week, are walkable to Discovery park, that your house is a farmhouse-style… it doesn’t take long for a curious person to do a little Googling on Zillow, you know? And that curiosity may (and most likely often isn’t!) not be malicious, but if you’re worried about inviting privacy invasion through what you share, you might consider being even MORE guarded about specific place-markers of your new neighborhood.
Anyway, I’ve written quite the novel of a comment but I just wanted to encourage you to assess your options moving forward and to consider staying on DG in some capacity– you have a great ‘voice’ and I’d definitely miss it in my reader!

[Reply]

Amy Reply:

I agree with the above! I would hate to see you stop blogging entirely because you’re a wonderful writer with a lot to share, but I too would be really uncomfortable sharing that much of my family life online (it’s one of the reasons I’ve opted to phase out blogging myself, actually). I think with so many options as far as social media goes it would be easy to contain the family stuff to, like, twitter and babble and Instagram and keep the blog more focused on what you want it to be, without compromising the privacy of your family.

Anyway, your new house looks lovely and it must feel so nice to be settled and “home”. Enjoy planning your garden!

Can’t believe you’ve been reading that long! THANK you! I’m definitely hoping to get back to more food talk. It’s been a difficult couple of months for us, and a year of lots of change and growth in general. While I talked about it here or not, I think it’s probably reflected in my writing and what I have put forward here. Not planning to stop any time soon necessarily. Just concerns that my whole family needs to consider. Thanks again for reading for so long!

Hi Emily,
I found your blog through a friend back in January when I found out my husband and I were relocating from San Diego to Seattle this summer. I enjoy your writing style and love learning more about our new city from a family perspective. We just had our second boy in September and I hope your boys bring you as many smiles and laughs as our’s do! I bet Cullen will be thrilled to meet his little brother! Check out the book One Special Day about becoming a big brother. Super cute with beautiful illustrations.
Best,

I know some people have suggested keeping personal family life posts to tweets and Facebook, etc. and of course you should move forward with whatever you feel comfortable with. My two cents – I don’t partake in any other social media sites and as I will be a new mother (due in November) I really enjoy reading about your family life and of course pregnancy posts! You truly have an amazing voice and your posts feel homey (hope that’s not creepy). I have even gotten teary-eyed reading your letters to Cullen (before the pregnancy hormones kicked in!).
There are many other recipe and family blogs out there and I started reading yours for recipes and fitness, but as our lives change over the years so does the focus and I really look forward to reading about your life experiences.

Gabrielle     at 8:18 pm

The new place looks great, and I love those floors! In reading the comments about what happened to you, well, it changes the tone a bit. It sucks that you have gone through this, but it is always a possibility when you blog so personally. It went a bit farther for another blogger I used to follow, a woman living in the country, in Wyoming I think. She had a stalker actually drive out to her ranch and pull a gun on her. Anything can happen, and I’m sure you’re prepared, and even if you didn’t blog you might encounter one nutjob or another in your life. That said, I hope you keep on blogging just as you’ve been!

Food and recipes when your appetite is good, and you’re in the mood, family photos when you take a trip, walks and runs with the dogs and the stroller(s). You can’t live in fear, just be cautious. You’re smart, you’ll figure it out. We love your blog, Emily, and we all wish you the best.

Hi Emily!

Like many readers, it really saddens me that your privacy was violated. I enjoy your blog so much and its horrible someone would take something good and turn it into bad…

On another note (and not to sound like a creeper!) Last time you moved, I remember you renting reusable boxes – but didn’t see them this time. I’m moving soon and was considering renting reusable boxes (in San Diego). Is there a particular reason you didn’t do it this time around?

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

We looked into getting them again, as we really liked the service. But it turned out to be much more expensive than I could justify as a moving cost. Last time I had a Living Social deal, and this time would have been over $200 just for boxes. We ended up using cardboard and then giving them to friends who are moving next weekend. So I at least feel good that they are being reused!

Lesley T.     at 7:38 pm

I’m sorry, Emily, I really do enjoy your blog and have been an avid reader for nearly two years, but I don’t understand why you decided to include this bit: “This is also really important because Casey travels for work quite a bit, leaving me here on my own with kiddos (creepers beware – I am ready for you!).”

I don’t think it’s wise to share that you’re frequently alone while you’re pregnant and caring for a small child. Announcing such a thing to the Internet is unnecessary and would make me feel more vulnerable than anything, so I truly don’t understand your perspective here.

Anyway, take care and enjoy your new home!

“To keep it brief, we suffered some pretty major privacy invasions during our last home purchase and sale, and I’d like to minimize the risk of that happening again.”

That is absolutely horrifying. I am sorry you experienced what you did, and I don’t blame you at all for wanting to protect your privacy. I used to blog on another site, and did not realize that when iphones came out it was posting my almost exact address in the tag line of each post! I was freaked out when someone I had never had a conversation with mentioned that he had driven through my neighborhood out of “curiosity” when he was in my city. Which also happened to be when my fiancee was out of the country on a guy’s surf trip. Creepy much?

I read above about what you experienced. You are right, that does take a special kind of asshole. Doing something like that would never have even crossed my mind in a million years.
