About Me

Red, gray, yellow, blue, purple, brown... I love them all and most of the time I can't decide which color will be my next victim.

I never knew how much I loved decorating until my husband and I bought our first house just 3 short months after we got married. At the time I was working outside of our home and didn't spend much time thinking about all the fun changes that could be made. About a year later I opened up an in-home daycare and was home 98% of the time. It was then that the idea of painting my kitchen cabinets popped into my head (although I never got around to it).

Soon after that we had our first baby, a little girl. She took up all of my time... energy... my sleep... my body... and well you get it. Fast forward 7 months later and SURPRISE... positive pregnancy test!!! At 36 weeks pregnant with our second child, we decided to move into our second home to be closer to my family. Our son was born just 16 months after his sister. We ended up having baby #3 and #4 in our third home! 

Our second home was unique. While 2/3 of it was built in 1860, the previous owners added a (now very outdated) addition in 1970. There's wood paneling, carpet where there shouldn't be (kitchen and bathrooms!), rotting windows, low ceilings on the second level, and a very orange brick fireplace.

Our third home was our dream home. Built in 1994, it screams 90's and needed a makeover. We finished a main level renovation just 2 years after moving in. We used IKEA cabinets in the kitchen and our front living space. We knocked down walls and also installed hard wood throughout the main level. It has been a dream come true!

Well, after 3 short years of living in our dream home, it is now time for a new adventure. We are currently waiting to see what/where our 4th house will be and I am excited to make our next home fit our style.

I have made mistakes, I have had fun, I have learned new things, and I have annoyed my husband... but most of all I have found my passion of creating a Harmonized Home.
