If you grew up in the 90s, then most likely wallpaper resided on at least one wall in your home. However, if you lived in MY house in the 90s, then wallpaper was EVERYWHERE! I’m not kidding. I don’t think my mom had more than one or two walls left untouched. She swears it was […]
Did you ever watch the TLC show “Trading Spaces”? I LOVED it! Vern and Genevieve were of course my favorites, and while I applauded Frank’s personality I could never get behind his designs. And don’t even get me started on Hildi. We all remember the infamous silk flowers as a wall treatment. Didn’t she do […]
Recipe post banter is the blog equivalent to small talk. It’s like I’m standing in front of someone I haven’t seen in years, trying to come up with something interesting to say when I know deep down all they want are the juicy details! And today’s details are indeed juicy…and delicious. Besides, I know the […]

Fall is a really special season for me. Every year when the leaves start to change my head is flooded with memories of childhood making!

I’ve been blogging for 2.5 years this Fall. And like any grand endeavor, there are bound to be a few twists and turns. For instance, when I started we were in a much smaller home and I was working full time. Today, we are in a completely different home with much more home owner experience […]
This weekend I had a really unique opportunity to go back and walk through my childhood home. Funny story — it was actually being used as a wedding venue for a couple I did not even know, but a mutual friend was attending and knew it was my old house so she invited me along. […]
One year ago today Andrew and I signed up for the biggest adventure in home owning and purchased our 1960s ranch house. 365 days later and we are just as much in love with this house now as we were then — and that’s good news because we put a lot of work (and money) […]
