This is it.
This is where it all begins.
I’ve been feeling like I’m a little late to the party. But really, I’m right on time. For my life at the moment, it is the PERFECT time!
I let my creativity guide me from a very young age, but when adult life took over, that creativity took a hiatus. Being a wife, mommy, and homeowner comes with a lot of amazing adventures, but sometimes there just isn’t enough time in each day for everything. And by everything, I mean mommy time. As our 4 children started to get older, I started dabbling in decorating the home we built in 1997, going from hodge podge, to well put together. And that carried over into more evolved holiday decorating. And crafts. And DIY furniture makeovers. And painting. And circular saws. and nail guns. And selling. And remodeling. Which comes along with a lot more painting & sawing & nailing.
And job changes. Another house. More remodeling. Then a rental. And finally, our perfectly imperfect new build home ~ designed by me, and slowly becoming everything we’ve always dreamed of
Keep in mind that most of my experience came before social media. Before inspiration idea websites were out there. Before blogging was a thing.
I was self taught and learned as I went. I’m still learning, and enjoying every minute of it!
Today I’m back home full time and I am thrilled to get back to what matters to me most. My family. My friends. My home. And being creative.
I’m going to share regular, happy life moments with you. And photos of our home. And decor ideas & gardening plans & beautiful landscape. I’ll throw in the cute outfit I just had to have, when I ran to the mall for some new black leggings. After I swore to my husband that was the “only” thing I was getting. Ha! You will surely get glimpses of the most handsome & stylish little dude you’ve ever seen, that is my grandson! And of course I’ll share the adorable outfits & headbands & bows that I get for my baby granddaughter. My daughter will probably pop in with a guest post from time to time, to help us all with some great skin care tips, or hair & makeup advice. And party decor – you should see the 1st Birthday Party we threw for my grandson! And recipes ~ I’m not a huge fan of cooking or baking due to the time it takes and messes it makes. (this does not equate to being bad at either, lol, no really, I can turn out some amazing stuff!!) so when I come across something good AND easy, I promise I’ll share.
Sometimes I’ll miss the mark. Sometimes it’ll be just right! Most of all, I just want to share all of these moments to inspire you and get your own creative juices flowing.
So let’s dive in, shall we…
