DIY Framed Picture Display

Easy Framed Picture Display 4
When my mom sold my childhood home six months after Chris and I got married, I was devastated. My dad helped build that home, I grew up there and had so many wonderful memories during that time. It was really hard to say goodbye, but it was something we knew was coming for a long time. Mom just didn't want to be there anymore. It was time for her to move on. Because she was downsizing, a lot of the furniture and wall decor was being given away. Mom gave Sam, Julie, and I what we wanted (and asked Continue reading [...]

Organizing Your Fridge

fridge organization
Do you have one spot in your house that you organize over and over?  One spot that, no matter how many times you re-do it, it just never seems good enough?  That spot for me is my refrigerator.  For some reason, I am never satisfied with how it turns out.  Which always leads me to either reevaluate or just leave it messy.  Usually I just leave it messy because I don't want to deal with it anymore. I've been living with a mess for so long, that I really wasn't going out and looking for Continue reading [...]

Learning To Be Patient: Community Brew Vol. 2

Thoughts on Marriage: Learning To Be Patient
This month's topic is a fun one for me, because I love talking about my thoughts on marriage.  Chris and I celebrated our two-year wedding anniversary this past April, and it has been a very happy two years for us.  We have grown individually and as a couple as we learn to navigate life and all its trials together. I have truly enjoyed the first two years of marriage.  It has been such a blessing to be married to my husband, and every day I am so thankful to be spending the rest of my life Continue reading [...]
