Lots of NEW & BIG Changes in our House!


Lately, I have been posting A LOT about CF. Yes, this is a blog about my life with Cystic Fibrosis. and yes, CF affects almost every aspect of my life. BUT... It is not my whole life. So I wanted to take some time to talk to you about the non-CF stuff that has been going on.

We have a lot of exciting news to share with everyone.

First of all, we have been very busy lately updating our house a bit. We bought our bungalow in June of last year (2016). It had a lot of the rooms that needed a bit of TLC. The original wood, doors, windows, floors made it all worth it.  We tackled the living room & dining room first. Yes, we still have a few things to add & do in those rooms, but overall I'm very happy with how they turned out:

AFTER:





We are currently updating our bedroom and the bathroom this week! Pictures coming soon! I promise! Next, we will be turning our 3rd bedroom (from it's current laundry room state) back into a bedroom. Then we will updating our 2nd bedroom too! These will all be done before end of May!!!

Otherwise, Work is going okay. I had another closing last week! So far I have been primarily working with first-time home buyers and I love it. I love being able to help someone purchase their first home. For Andrew and I we hope our first home turns into our forever home! I'm expanding with work and doing more workshops over the summer. I recently earned more certifications, which I will be posting those on my business facebook page soon! I've been really focusing on helping people find agents where they live.  My referring an agent to someone in another state, costs that person no money. Plus, I find them an agent that fits their needs & they feel comfortable working with. I did quite a few referrals in 2016 and hope to double that number in 2017. So if you need an agent where you live, contact me (Cheriz Kunkel, Jim Maloof Realty) on my FB page!

There are lots of other big surprises being announced in the next 2 months but we have to wait to share them!

Hint: Work and Family related.

Also, I'm currently working on a new blog site. I love my cheriz.org blog. VERY much, but I have a husband now. It's not just my life, it's OUR life. Also, our lives are much more than just CF. While CF is probably the biggest contributor to my blog, we would love to expand it to talk about Andrew & I's life together. Focusing CF, Work, Home, Life, and everything in between! I will have a lot of upcoming posts about this, when we are ready to navigate to the new site!

Also, we road tripped to Carmel/Indianapolis, IN on Tuesday-Wednesday. I gave presentation about CF to high school students. They asked a lot of great questions & I was happy to educate them on CF, the CFF, my life, and our mission for a cure! I will be posting it on YouTube in the next few days!  While in Indiana, we toured the James Whitcomb Riley Home and we ate a few really good restaurants. We like to always tour a historic home and eat at "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" restaurant when we travel. We were thrilled to do both!

It was our 5th Triple D Restaurant & our 3rd historic building together (I've been to quite a few more than he has...). We had a great mini-trip!

We even managed to have my Orkambi shipped directly to the amazing Bed and Breakfast that we stayed at. This will be our last overnight trip for 2017 most likely. But we hope to do other day trips in the summer!

I will keep everyone updated on the big news in the next few months & will let you all know how my CF Clinic on April 11th went!
