  6. Jennifer says:


    You don't know me, but I love your blog and I really enjoy reading it everyday.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I lost all of my grandparents by the time I was 20, and I loved them so much. Not a day goes by that I don't miss them. So I know how painful this time is. But being with family and remembering all the wonderful memories will give you the strength to get through it.

    You're in my thoughts and prayers.

    Take care,

    Two months later my Grandma is still sad that my Grandpa is not around and I swear the best thing I could do for her is just call, visit, send her notes in the mail and just keep her smiling and surviving as she says 🙂

    Take all the time you need and do not even think about feeling guilty! We will all be here with big hugs for you whenever it is that you come back!

    La estafa automotriz MAS grande en Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico. Porfavor, tengan mucho cuidado y NO hagan negocios con http://www.expoautos.con.mx y http://www.globalbit.con.mx porque lo que parece barrato te va salir carrisimo!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
