You guys…this has been like 3 years in the making. Ever since I bought this house I stared at this perfect little space that was to be my very own office. Unfortunately, I never made the time to really fix the thing up. The walls were tan…the carpet was tan…and the furniture was old. It was the least attractive room of the house…and yet, I expected to come there and find inspiration. I didn’t. As a matter of fact, I… Read more »

Happy Friday!! Tonight, while I was completing one of my (rather strange) beauty rituals…I tried to remember where I came up with it! I decided this one stemmed from a trick my mother taught me -gotta love moms! It dawned on me that several of my absolute favorite little beauty tricks were either passed down to me or learned by some trial and A LOT of error. I figured my lovely readers might be looking for a winter pick-me-up for… Read more »

I have a bit of anxiety. Okay, my husband is going to read this and totally call me out on that statement. So, let me revise, I seriously struggle with anxiety. In all honesty, I wouldn’t wish the vortex of my mind on my worst enemy. Fortunately, I have made some significant changes in my life the past few years and I am able to manage this anxiety with exercise, organization, routines and a glass (or two) of wine every… Read more »

Our blue door is the highlight of my year….I mean, other than marrying the love of my life, spending two weeks together in Maui and being a newlywed……but next to that, definitely the highlight of my year!! 🙂 We began our blue door adventure at a Benjamin Moore color store; I am aware that going there was not our most cost effective solution, but this was our first real painting project and we were so unclear on the color that… Read more »

Happy Monday!! That was a joke, I think Mondays suck for everyone even those that don’t have to stumble into work. The day just has a bad aura around it. Lucky for me, my weekend was fabulous though it was extremely mild, tame and definitely reflective of increase in age. Andrew was off of work but unfortunately, “on call”….meaning he spent most of the time being called into work or assisting employees on the phone so I kind of did… Read more »

Andrew and I have lived on opposite schedules for the past two years; he worked 2:00pm-10:00pm, and I was home from work by 6:30 and ready for bed by 9:00 (I’m so old). The weekends were much the same as he usually had to work at least one day if not both of the two I was given off for the week. Unfortunately, this schedule significantly restricted our opportunity for household projects. When he was at home we wanted to… Read more »

Here’s the thing about me…I’m always looking for the next step, the next adventure…the next logical decision to make. For example…I met Andrew, and I had to have him…and once he was “mine”, I had to make him fall in love with me…and once he loved me I needed him to be my husband. And now, here we are…’til death do us part….I guess you could say I’m pretty good at what I do. 😉 This is pretty much the… Read more »
