  • Welcome, Wilson!
    on Dec 14, 2016 in Uncategorized family
    A little over a week ago now, our family of three became a family of four when little Wilson was born! I had been having contractions for about a month before his arrival but they always stopped… needless to say, mentally I was worn out from th...
  • Painting a Kohler Brockway SinkHi friends!  Sorry for the long pause between blog posts.  Baby #2 has yet to make his or her arrival, so David, Evie and I are filling the waiting period with as much family quality time as possible.  We’ve had a lot of fun exploring local...
  • Finished Master Bathroom.Allow me to finally share with you a long-overdue post: the FINISHED BATHROOM! We have had this wrapped up for a while now but I just never seem to find the time to write a blog post.  Sorry for the delay, but better late than never? To remind you w...
  • Another New Addition…
    on Aug 20, 2016 in Uncategorized family
    Two years ago today, God gave us the gift of our sweet daughter and made us parents.  These past two years have made the rest of my life to this point feel insignificant… there’s just no way to describe how my heart has grown since bec...
  • Riesling of the Pyrenees VarietyOn Friday, we added a new family member to our home!!! Everyone please meet our beautiful new Great Pyrenees, “Riesling.”  She is about 3-4 years old and from a rescue in Georgia, and we’re in love with her already. She was surrend...
  • The Chickens Pay Their Rent…Finally!
    on Jul 30, 2016 in Back Yard Outdoors Uncategorized
    When Lynne first said she wanted chickens three years ago, I chuckled and thought “aw, that’s cute…No way!” Fast forward just over two and a half years, and guess who was scraping chicken litter out from the coop?! My one bit...
  • Almost Done in the Hallway
    on Jul 25, 2016 in Hallway closet hallway Renovation
    I have some updates to the hallway to share!  It’s practically done except for the little finishing touches (hardware, paint, etc.) now! First of all, we installed lighting underneath the cupboards.  This way we can 1) fold laundry in the dar...
  • Tiling the Master BathroomWe have more progress to share with our renovations! David and I opted to install heated floors in the master bathroom because the room only has one air vent for the high velocity heating, and also… if we’re only going to have one bathroo...
  • New Laundry in Upstairs Hallway
    on Jun 27, 2016 in Hallway floors Renovation washer/ dryer
    I have more renovation progress to share with y’all! First of all– the floors in the hallway were installed! They are actually the original floorboards that were in that space before but our contractor carefully took them out and sanded...
  • Carving Out the Kids’ BathroomIn addition to making walls in the master bathroom, the crew has made a lot of progress in a new bathroom we’re tucking in the back corner of the house across from Evie’s room. The idea behind the architectural drawings is that one day we...
  • Creating a Master BathroomMore renovation updates!!  Now I get to share how the master bathroom is coming together.   Just to remind you, below are the plans the architect drew up, and here is a link to my personal inspiration for what I want it to look like. So below...
  • Making New Rooms Upstairs
    on May 29, 2016 in Hallway Master Bedroom Renovation
    More renovation progress to share!!   Here’s what the inside of the former doorway to the hallway looks like plastic-ed over. And as you can see from the pic below, we have new support beams for the new walls. Now HERE is where it gets sup...
  • Renovation Progress
    on May 23, 2016 in Hallway Renovation
    Thought I’d share some updates to the renovation! We had to put in all new floor beams to support the floor.  The old ones just weren’t 100%, and why put all this money into a house if it doesn’t have a solid floor? Another big ste...
  • Inspiration for the Master Bathroom
    on May 15, 2016 in Master Bedroom Sunday Inspiration
    Hi folks!  Before I share how things have been progressing with our major upstairs renovation, I thought I’d show you my “dream” of how I want it to end up looking.  I’m lucky to have a husband who supports my insane Houzz/...
  • Bye Bye Upstairs

      Good morning, and Happy Mother’s Day everyone!!!  Taking advantage of Daddy and Evie playing outside with the chicks to upload a few pictures of the progress in our big upstairs renovation.  These pictures are a bit old now (I can̵...
  • Walk-In Closet Accompli!
    on Apr 16, 2016 in Master Bedroom closet Renovation
    This is Part 2 of the Walk-In Closet story.  So as I mentioned in my last post, first David and I painted the 4 walls and ceiling a calming blue, which I love.   Then we hung a great mirror on sale (only $29!) from Kirkland.   Next our contra...
  • Walk-In Closet
    on Apr 10, 2016 in Master Bedroom closet Renovation
    Okay, time to share some cool updates on the renovation project! The first step of the project is demo-ing an old random fireplace that apparently exists behind the wall in the hallway to make room for a new, big walk-in closet for our bedroom.  Thi...
  • And So It Begins…
    on Apr 4, 2016 in Hallway Master Bedroom Renovation
    Well, it looks like our 5-year-down-the-road-plans were meant to be 5-month-down-the-road-plans.  Glad we got the architect to draw them up last fall because since then, we’ve had no less than 3 burst pipes in the bathroom upstairs that have l...
  • Chickadees!!!So on Friday, David and I had a wonderful, awful idea (to paraphrase from the Grinch?  Anyone?)… we took Evie to Southern States, which is having a special where you get 6 chicks for free if you buy a bag of chicken feed. Evie LOVED looking a...
  • Designing The Upstairs
    on Mar 11, 2016 in Hallway Master Bedroom Renovation
    Big changes will be happening in our neck of the woods!! Last fall we hired one of Charlottesville’s most renowned architects, Russell Skinner (from Abbott Skinner), to come take a look at our upstairs and help us come up with a long-term plan...
