A couple years ago, I made the big decision to change the theme of my blog. Before, it was a very standard theme on blogger. I wanted my own domain name to make things feel a bit more professional and the look to be more unique and distinctive! Fast forward to today and I am realizing that although my blog might be visually memorable, it poses a lot of problems. read more

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about life, other than what’s going on with our home makeovers and the odd DIY. Life looks a lot different for our family lately. The last 3 months we’ve adjusted smoothly and quite well overall since moving back to Canada! We had a gorgeous extended fall and spent a good amount of time walking the beautiful paths by our house. It was the most we spent outdoors in months, it was just too hot and smoggy in Bakersfield. It’s incredible what some real fresh air can do for the soul!
