Today, I was thinking about how much or how little some of you know about me. I guess you could say it could be a good thing or a bad thing, but I figured I would share a few tidbits about me. Some may be obvious or you may know them, but for most… it’s a change of scenery. 10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me I love to ORGANIZE. I’m a bit OCD and I love things being clean AND in their designated spot. It’s a love-hate relationship. I could spend hours reorganizing my house and be completed…

If you’ve been following along our journey, we bought a house in August of 2016. It’s a beautiful home, in one of our dream neighborhoods, but it needed a little TLC. The previous owners were artists out of their own heart and paired the original hardwoods with yellow, green, blue, and red walls – YIKES!  Walls Galore Fast forward a few months later and the color of all the walls may not have changed, but the decor surely did! We worked on small projects at a time. I finished painting the living room (not ready for a full room reveal yet!)…
