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?
We are so excited to introduce you to our new home: Dr. Terrell’s House (now Dr. Schroeder’s House) haha! I love to give our homes nicknames, and this house already has a special place in our hearts since it was originally occupied by a family doctor. Now it’s owned by one again!
This year, you may be wondering, “How can I make Valentine’s Day special?” Especially if it’s your first. It may feel a little impossible. But our current world climate does not mean you and your partner can’t celebrate. Skip going out and plan a perfectly romantic evening at home.
I’ve always dreamed of having a creative studio. In my head, my workspace features a big collaboration table smack dab in the middle of the room surrounded by storage and organization for all my vintage decor. In the past, we’ve never had the right space to create a work studio. However now that we’ve found our new home, my workspace dreams are going to become a reality!
It’s no secret that I love vintage Persian-style rugs. In my opinion, rugs can make or break a room. They’re perfect for adding texture and depth to a space. See how I styled them in our home.
As soon as we found out we were pregnant, I had the nursery design on my mind, but I waited until we found out if we were having a boy or girl before putting “pen to paper.”
I am a sucker for Valentine’s Day. Last year, I splurged on a little red dress for our dinner date, and I think it might be a new tradition. It’s the perfect excuse to find something fun and new for your closet.
We bought our dream home and it’s COVERED in wallpaper. Bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms, hallways. You name it. It’s wallpapered. I had removed wallpaper in the past and remembered it being horrible, but not this horrible.
Affordable wedding dresses DO exist, and I am going to share with you my secret, Lulus Bridal. I ordered a dress for our courthouse wedding from Lulus for $80.00 and was so impressed. It was super comfortable and fit like a glove! After wearing this dress, I was kicking myself for spending thousands on the gown for our destination wedding.
This year is different. Not because of the pandemic. Not because I’m becoming a mom. But because I have a new perspective and view on life, love and work. It seems that 2020 taught me to let go a bit. Live more in the moment. Less stress. Less pressure. More living.
I can’t believe my first trimester is coming to a close. I feel SO blessed that this pregnancy has been smooth sailing. I know many women aren’t so lucky. I’ve heard good things about the second trimester, so it’s time to get to work preparing for baby!
I can’t believe we are already waving goodbye to the first trimester! It feels like a lifetime go and just yesterday that we found out we were pregnant all at once. We have had A LOT going on over the past three months.
