Fall Decor | 2017

When we put in the offer on home a year ago this week, the anticipation of our first Autumn in our new home was pretty great. I couldn’t wait to get out my little orange bin full of decor and kick back with a warm cup of cider in an owl mug. Finding an entryway […]

Trunk-or-Treat Event | Stepping Out As A Blogger

This past week, I’d say the blog hit a few minor milestones. For the first time ever, I got to outwardly promote the blog…in front of people. And I got cute little business cards to help promote it!
