In my "former life" I was an Interior Designer, tons easier spending someone else's money, ha ha. I was so busy just living every day life I began to miss having a creative outlet. We've made a couple of cross country moves in the last four years, from Chicago to Houston and now to Washington, DC. My mission is to always make our current house a home. A couple new things are usually purchased (after much research, sales searching and coupon using), but it's also a lot of repurposing things... like spray painting! ;) Let me clarify too, I was a designer NOT a decorator. I was more into space planning, budget and the actual doing the actual blueprints than deciding anything about curtains, vases, and furniture! So this is sort of a new venture for me as well! I'm also a lover of books and devour them readily, they're such a wonderful thing!
I'd like to consider myself an very (very!) amatuer domestic diva... I'm still learning everyday. All things I yearn to be better at... parenting, cooking, baking, meal planning, couponing, laundry, cleaning, entertaining and another current mission of mine is to learn to sew! Oh and I'm definitely NOT a writer so there will probably be typos AND I don't take very good pictures, but I try! Looks like this spring/summer I'll be dabbling into landscaping as we turn our yard of dirt into something family friendly.
As a family we like to split our time between just hanging by ourselves in our own little world or getting out and about. Just depends. We love to be outdoors but haven't taken the plunge yet to camping or hiking. For now we settle for lots of outdoor time via the backyard, walks, parks, beaches and such. Hope to upgrade to being more outdoorsy as the kids get older. Since we're Midwesterners transplanted to Texas and now the East Coast, we do lots of road trips to go back to see relatives. Lots, for days and days and miles and miles!
I can't call this quite a personal blog, not quite a family blog, not quite just design and crafts... just me (us!)... a little bit of this and a little bit of that and a random musing here and there! Live. Laugh. Love! Please visit often and let me share our days with you!
