In the blink of an eye, we’re already at two years in our home. The first year was spent getting settled and working on a ton of projects. While we continued projects into this year, our home has evolved to accommodate our precious baby! Not a day goes by that I am not super grateful… Read more »
Today I am happy to share that our backyard makeover is complete! We started this makeover with an overgrown yard that we’ve let go since September.

When we first saw our future home online via MLS we were presented with a beautiful green front yard. On the day we physically step foot on the property we were greeted with the current homeowner attempting to water dead grass. I guess he didn’t realize that spraying weed killer over the lawn would kill… Read more »
The Clutter Filter: Create a Landing Strip Our landing strip has changed much since I did this last year. We still put our keys in the tray, but because counter in the laundry room is taken up by the cat’s food dishes and our wine cooler, we’ve resorted to putting the tray on top of… Read more »
