Friday {6/26/15}

I have bad news and good news. Bad news first. No more posts about the ugly condo because (the good news)….. WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!     We closed two weeks ago and we’ve been scraping popcorn ceilings since. I’ll share more later, but I wanted to share a few things that have happened since […]

What I Learned in April

Hi y’all! I’m still here. We finally have the construction from termite damage done at the condo and we’re working on a few projects and getting everything put back together. While we get those wrapped up, I wanted to share what I’ve learned in the last month. ONE. It’s possible to love someone you haven’t […]

Friday {2/13/15}

Monday Roundup

Hi y’all, I couldn’t think of a better name for this post, but I just wanted to share a few of my favorite things that I’ve seen on the internet this week. (1) Challenged and inspired me – Shauna Niequist’s “On Laundry & Love Stories” She writes – “what I’m learning is that being connected […]

What I Learned in April {5/2/14}

Hi y’all!  On Fridays I typically share five highlights from the week, but like last month, I’ll be sharing what I learned this month and linking up with Emily at Chatting at the Sky. So without further ado, here are five things that I learned this month … ONE. Painting, even cabinets, isn’t that difficult when you […]
