Happy Friday 5/17/19

Happy Friday! I’m writing this at 9 o’clock on Thursday night, it’s dark outside and raining, but Garrett is out in the garden raking out pea gravel. What a catch, that man! He’s obviously just as excited to wrap up our garden project as I am. Not only will it free up time for other projects (I’m looking at you, kitchen), but we’re really looking forward to spending time out there this summer.

A Garden Enthusiast Plans a Garden

Happy Friday! Soooo…we put an offer on a house this week. A rental. I think it was only on the market for 20 seconds before I saw it, texted our real estate agent, and set up a showing. And then I had to keep my cool all morning while we waited to see it. Guys, I am excited about this one! Crossing my fingers I’ll have more to share next week.

A Farmhouse Laundry Room Design + an Update

Remember our laundry room? That one we’ve been working on at a snails pace? Well it finally has a functioning washer and dryer (!!!), and we’ve made some other progress too. So today I’m sharing our design plan, a construction update, and all that good stuff. Despite our slow pace, I’m really happy with the decisions we’ve made. And I won’t be surprised if this tiny room ends up my favorite spot in the house. Yes, really!
