When we were putting in an offer on our house one of our big conversations was, if we get it we have to do something about the awful kitchen. Continue reading


Quick DIY Kitchen Table Upgrade for $20

Back when we moved in together four years ago I inherited some not so stylish black dining chairs from my husbands days as a bachelor. Back then we were in an apartment and not buying forever furniture so we just got a small black round table from Pier 1 to go with the chairs we already had.

Oh and of course I cant wait to wear all my cute sweaters and boots again! Continue reading

The great thing is that even if I don’t reach many people, I think I will really enjoy the process of putting my life on paper. Continue reading
