the Knight residence
The most lived-in rooms of the house...
Me, Clay (my husband), and...
and, our sweet foster dog Lou Lou
A little over a year ago, we all moved from our cute little first house to our current house (except for Lou Lou, she got here this summer). Over the past year, Clay and I have completed project after project in the quest to make the 1948 ranch house look and feel like it's ours. After MANY trips to Home Depot, we're getting close, but the reality of owning a house is that the to-do list never ends. Happily, the house is now more reflective of our style and it certainly feels like a home!

After we bought the house, I immediately got to work on the task of furnishing the place and found my way to Blogland. There was so much inspiration and I tinkered with the idea of starting my own blog to document my impending nesting process for friends and family. I loved the visual organization aspect of it - especially the prospect of displaying my overflowing coffers of interior images as well as having the ability to list and link all of my potential decor purchases. So, Knight Moves was born!
Since then I've accumulated these things called "followers" and have learned about "comments" and all about traffic stats and analytics. Seriously, I was not blog savvy AT ALL and didn't know about followers and comments until embarrassingly late in the game! In any case, it's been such a fun project and quite an amazing community to become a part of. There are so many encouraging, supportive bloggers out there and I'm so thankful to all who have helped Knight Moves along the way :)
Blogging has really helped me hone in on my passion for interior design and it has jump-started the process of making my passion into a profession. After being a citizen of the blogosphere for only a short time, I'm completely amazed at the fantastic opportunities that have come my way. I've been connected with really impressive people and have been invited to contribute to some super exciting projects. There are still a lot of moving parts, but a few are underway. One will be announced in October, so stay tuned!
Be sure to tune in tomorrow for Melissa's Blog Crawl response on So About What I Said... Again, Kudos to Beth for orchestrating this! Happy blog crawling :)
