We loved renovating our Lambert Avenue house with the intention to flip. It was a HUGE project - one where we added an entire room and ran into lots of fun surprises. Eek!
But it turned out so BIG and BRIGHT and AIRY. We wanted this home to be classic and calm, reflective of the buyers who generally are looking in this beach area.
We turned this 3/2 80s style house into an up-to-date 4/2 with a white kitchen and an open layout. We removed two huge walls, built a wall for an extra bedroom, and completely rehabbed the kitchen. It's amazing what new farmhouse floors and gray paint could do too! We also kept the existing bathroom cabinets and gave them a poppy blue update to bring some color to the white tile.
What we didn't expect is that my parents fell in love with the house so much that they ended up MOVING IN.
We LOVE that we can see this house every week when hanging with them. Renovating this house wasn't easy.....but it was SO worth it and fun to see the end result. Creating a special space for someone to make memories is so meaningful!

God has had me in this season of challenging my idea of dreaming. For so long, I had a hard time dreaming about the future because of pain and fear. But this summer, I was challenged to believe in the creativity God has put inside of me and live it out in a new way. I think this is something God is trying to speak to so many of us, so I hope it resonates with you too!

We took a month off to get us through the summer and some of the speaking engagements we had, and now we're back on track with a FRESH new name. So since most of our podcast is focused on family, we renamed it to Antos in Love. This was our wedding hashtag, and so we thought it'd be fun to refurbish it. Our podcasts will feature Ryan a whole lot more, our family, and our travels as we raise Amelia.
For this episode, I loved chatting with my brother Dillon. He is 22 and a man of many talents. He currently lives in a 400sf apartment in downtown San Francisco, and is freelancer in videography, photography, & audio engineering. He is a nomadic minimilist who's traveled extensively, loves meeting new people, and has a knack for the art of conversation. He's had some crazy experiences (one may or may not have been working for the government. ;)
Take a listen to hear us chat about being afraid and taking risks anyway, why being a good conversationalist is so important to loving people, and some inspiration from his travels! This episode was recorded a little wonky, so forgive some of the sound issues. We're hoping your ears have lots and lots of grace. ;) <3
