July 2015 in Review

What a rollercoaster of a month for me and my family. We started out the month on a super high with Ben and my 10 year wedding anniversary plus the positive result for our very first IVF. Then just a couple short weeks later we find out that I miscarried. Yeah, it’s been a very rough month for my family, but luckily I have this blog to keep my mind off things and to keep me busy. I don’t think I could have survived this past month without this website. Sad but true.

So here’s the projects that kept me busy throughout July…

Thanks to everyone for another super supportive month.

Can’t wait to see what August brings!

June 2015 in Review

You know what’s weird? I feel like I get more DIY and decorating projects done when I don’t have a house of my own. Maybe because I’m not spending tons of time cleaning? If that’s the case, I need a full-time maid… and throw in a cook while you’re at it.

So June was an extremely busy month for me! If you’re new here or just haven’t caught up in awhile, sit back and relax… here’s the past month in review!
