About Me

Hello, and welcome! Here’s a little background on me, my family, and our ever-changing home.

About My Family

DSC_0023Michael and I were married in April of 2009, bought our house in October of 2009, had our first precious boy in July of 2010, learned a little bit about marriage and parenting, then welcomed our second little guy in January of 2015. We are truly blessed.

I’m just your average DIY-er, the descendant of my mother, the Queen of DIY, and I have a brain full of to-do projects for our house. I’m a crazy planner, I am also crazy about planners (the paper kind), and I am a meticulous list-maker. This is my journey as a budgeting Mom and dedicated re-decorator.

About our house

Our home is your typical Florida stucco architecture, with a slightly Spanish feel, built in 1978. It’s about 1300 square feet, and has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. With 2 kiddos we are quickly outgrowing it but we love the area so we do everything we can to make the space work for us.

About the blog

I originally started this blog back in 2011. Back then it was hosted on Blogger and I have linked a few of my original posts in the first posts on this new site. This blog is a collection of my projects, home decor ideas, wishlists, random thoughts, family memories, travel tips, favorite products, printables, planner favorites, and much more. It’s also the documentation of my journey to nailing down my home style. I’m so happy you found me, and I hope you find something that speaks to you!
