Your friend just bought their first home. They’re thrilled but exhausted, living out of boxes and eating take-out off the floor. Buying your first (or second or third!) home is incredibly exciting and deserves a celebratory gift. Of course, the classic bottle of wine or champagne is always appreciated. But why not try a gift that offers a more personalized touch?

It's about the journey, not the destination (cheesy, but for real).
I’m a newlywed living in Indianapolis, Indiana with my hubby, baby girl Ryan and two pups, Porter and Piper. I wear a lot of hats, like blogger, wedding planner, wife and mama. I believe everyone has the power to create a home, life & business that they LOVE.
