BHG Stylemaker Event 2016

It's such a pleasure to be in this world of blogging and get to meet and interact with so many people, including other fabulous bloggers, magazines, and brands.  Two years ago I went to the Better Homes and Gardens Stylemaker event and was invited to attend this year as well.  I love going to New York, so it was a good excuse to see some of my sweet blog friends, go to the event, and also take a … [Read more...]

Haven Conference 2016 Recap!

Five years ago, the Haven Conference was born.   When I think back to where I was 5 years ago, it's nothing short of a miracle that all of this came together when we stepped out in blind faith and started a DIY/Home decor blogging conference from scratch.

Open House 2015

Just a few months after I moved in, in October 2012, I  had an open house and many of you came.  It was such a fun time of sharing the house post-renovations and getting to show off the hard work that my dad and I accomplished (along with some contractors along the way).  It was truly a wonderful moment to have many of my readers and fellow blog friends stop by and visit. Since so much … [Read more...]
