And now I live in my Forever Home. Years of waiting for the right property to come on the market, offers rejected, almost settling, and rewriting our list of must-haves a dozen times. After finding the right place, we’ve put in a year of remodeling and countless hours of research and labor, and it’s almost there!
My husband loves what he does as a real estate agent and a part-time professor at the local university. I knew I needed to have passion for my career, as well, and do something that allowed for more time with my family & friends, more time in the garden, and more time creating a space that I always dreamed of. So, combining everything I love – Design, Decorating, Organization, DIY projects (always looking for ways to save $$), Cooking, Entertaining, Gardening, Reading, and Writing – I decided to quit my job and start a blog.
Now I get to do what I love every day and share it with you. I hope you can relate to some of my stories and I hope my tips and ideas will be useful. With all the incredible blogs out there, my fingers are crossed that I can add something special into the mix.
My goal is to be real and show you things that pretty much anyone can do. I will share photos of achievable projects and designs that won’t break the bank. I love perfection but fall short, so sharing realistic projects, tips, and ideas that anyone can use, seems like the way to go. That will allow me to be myself, (the only me I know how to be) and share my world, with the hope of adding to yours. The internet is full of picture-perfect filtered, edited, staged, photoshopped, and discouragingly unachievable photos and projects of homes, gardens, families, and design. And trust me, I LOVE to scan through amazing websites with beautifully perfect photos. But I also know that for most of us, we live in our messy, cluttered, busy homes and life gets in the way of perfection. So I hope that you can take one or two ideas, incorporate them into your world, and maybe I can bring a little bit of joy into your life and into your home. ♥
