Nursery Tour Black and White and Green

I have to admit. I didn’t think we would have a second child. Not that we didn’t try, but being almost 40 and trying to have a baby was difficult.  There were a ton of problems that I’m sure many women my age goes through and I had to come to terms with Mia being […]

Succulent Centerpiece for Patio

When we first bought this house, we knew that one of the first things we had to fix was the patio. It ALMOST didn’t pass inspection, as it leaned a little bit and the wood was rotted. We ended up hiring a contractor to do it. You can see the process and my tips for […]

I have a massive dining room table. It’s eight feet long and cannot be folded down because it’s glass.

That being said, […]
