Mini Makeover : The Bathroom

Budz, although I try, my house isn't 100% pretty. It's easy to lie to the world and make it seem that way on the internet though. A few of you have noticed that I never post photos of my bathroom, and that's for good reason - there's only shame to share.

Floating Shelves in the Basement

Hello, Budz! I'm excited about this post, like more excited than I knew I would be. I got the chance to work with an amazing line of products, something that was a real game changer for me. Do you know about Amy Howard? I have to admit that I didn't going into this, but have discovered a bit about her and a lot about her line of products, Amy Howard at Home.

Modernizing Antique Doorbells

Friends! First off let me start off by thanking you from the bottom of my heart for all the supportive comments you left me in the last post. This has truly been one of the more difficult times in our life and your kind words really helped to uplift me and the fam. Things are still a little rocky, but for the first time last night I began to feel safe in our house again - and it was such a relief to go to bed without a anxiety pit in my stomach. I've been trying to distract myself and feel READ MORE
