It’s a little crazy to me that I’m actually doing this. My girlfriends have been trying to talk me into doing a blog for at least a year and after going over the pro/con list more times than I can count over countless glasses (ok…bottles) of wine, they’ve convinced me to just jump in and do it. I have a love of being creative – whether that is party planning & designing one of a kind invitations with over the top themes, DIY projects, antiquing, and decorating my home one day at a time.
Many of my firsts posts will be on our first home. We recently sold our sweet first house – one we loved very much and slowly (more like, as we could afford it) fixed up, loved on, lived in. And it was the home we brought our precious baby boy home to. We learned a LOT and had lots of trial and error projects but our major lesson: if you can remodel a home together – and more specifically, remodel on a budget and do ALL of the work yourselves – you can do anything! Because of these projects, we definitely got the most bang for the buck out of selling our home and now we are living in our dream home. One I’ve wanted since I was a little girl and as soon as my husband saw it, he was sold too. Hopefully this can be good inspiration for new homeowners who want easy projects that will give you the most bang for your buck – with this being said, we did these projects without my planning on doing a blog… so there will be no professional photos of the actual processes, just the before and after photos. I will do better with future projects 🙂
I also hope to include lots of details about our wedding, our new home, and lots of parties and celebrations in between. I live for a themed party!
This honestly may turn out to be just my happy place to gush about our precious little boy and my sweet and very patient husband, or our sweet Black Labs, Grey & Goose. For now, honestly just trying to figure out the basics of all of this… but I know my girlfriends are squealing. Cheers!
