This weekend we dusted off the old tent and went camping!!! We love camping, the good, old-fashioned tent in the woods camping. Open fires, s’mores, hiking, and lots of dirt. The kids have a blast and we get to unplug and just enjoy being a family.
I’m so excited it’s May!!! I love this month. This is the month we got married, the month my first baby was born, and the month summer starts. So many awesome things happen in May! This year is going to be a very busy month too, and having my quick reference calendar on my desktop and iPhone helps me stay a… View Post
The built in bench with storage in the dining room is finally done!!! I started this project in January, before I started blogging, and it has taken too long to finish… but it is done now.

When we went into the expo at noon, it was windy and 70 degrees outside. When we left at 7pm to come home, it looked like… View Post
The dining room remodel is coming along. I can see the big picture even more as each projects is finished. And I swear that food tastes better when eaten in a beautiful space! Maybe not, but I’m definitely happier when I sit down to eat so that helps.
I cook a lot! I actually spend most of my time in the kitchen, behind my island, looking out over my family. And I enjoy it! I really enjoy cooking and trying new recipes.
