  • Storage, Style and Satisfaction

    I have developed a sincere appreciation for furniture pieces that include hidden storage compartments. Specifically, coffee and end tables. With a family of four humans and two dogs, there are plenty of odds and ends (and, frankly, ugly stuff) that need to be hidden away from visitors and ourselves alike.

  • Renovation Bathroom

    On a recent episode of a home remodeling show, the contractor was explaining the two rooms that are most likely to sell a home: the bathroom and kitchen. I’m a sucker for a spacious and well-appointed kitchen, so that room came as no shock to me. But…the bathroom? It’s a space that is necessary, but not one that I would give extra attention to in plans for remodeling.

  • What’s Behind Door Number One

    There is something magical about an old barn. So stately, so picturesque… I always try to envision the barn in its heyday, what role it played on the farm and what took place inside of it. I imagine the warm smell of animals, the slightly dusty but earthy scent of hay, the sweat dripping from the brow of the resident caretaker. It’s like a beautiful story just waiting to be unveiled.

  • Timeless Style

    Let’s face it: many of our favorite things eventually go out of style. Some of us resist it, like that gal at the gym who continues to wear tights and legwarmers, even though the 80s were over many years ago. Or, the guy who still rocks the business-in-the-front-and-party-in-the-back hairstyle, another favorite in the eighties.

  • Come in and Have a Seat

    Our house has become quite a neighborhood gathering spot for the kids. I both love and loathe the fact that a series of local boys traipse freely in the front door and out the back…over and over again, as if they are doing laps around the house. I love that parents trust us and the kids make themselves at home, but I loathe that they track “things” all through the house because they don’t stop to take their shoes off and/or empty their pockets before they come through the door.

  • An Office for Momma and the Mini

    It’s an exciting time in our household. We are preparing to make yet another move, this time way down south to the rolling hills of south Georgia. Although we are filled with anticipation of the unknown, this adventure takes us back to some familiar territory.

  • There is a Difference

    I have been married to my husband for almost ten years, but he still manages to surprise me. He’s a “guy’s guy”, parked in front of the TV on weekends during football season and spouting sports statistics to his buddies whenever they get together. He likes to hunt with his buddies back home and drink a couple of beers with friends new and old.

  • A Win-Win Sleeping Situation

    As most people are aware, one of the hallmarks of being a military family is frequent moves. We are preparing to embark on yet another Permanent Change of Station (PCS) move in less than a month. This will be our fifth move, so we are starting to “get the hang of” the entire experience. Although, every move is different and we always seem to learn something new.

  • Great Guns!

    This year is flying by. I’ve heard that as you get older, time goes faster. I don’t know if that’s scientifically true, but it certainly feels that way. It seems like just a couple of weeks ago we were digging out from Snowzilla 2016, but today I looked up at the calendar and realized we’re almost in June. Heck, before I know it Christmas shopping season will be here again! Gaw!!
