The first few days and weeks home with a new baby are so precious, and prepping your home beforehand is a daunting task, even though you’re not sure what to expect. I spent tons of time during naps and downtime reorganizing my house because there were so many things I had to do to make […]
If there’s anything I love more in this world, it’s interior design. I love turning average spaces into something beautiful and meaningful – and I especially loved doing this room because I was so excited to give our first little one the dream escape to grow and learn.

Interior design and personal styles grow faster than our pocketbooks can keep up with! My style is always evolving and my home struggles to keep up with it. After moving in together a few years ago and recently being married, settling into and making our house a home was never a priority with mismatched furniture, random collections of stuff and storage nightmares. Over the last month, I’ve slowly been cleaning out the old and organizing the kept items. We’ve hit a point where we can begin putting together OUR style and making our home something comfortable and loving. Since we do have such mismatch, garage sale furniture, I took $40 to the hardware store to make our bedroom style complete with two redesigned nightstands!

Those who know me best know that I am a bit of a wedding and party planning nerd. I love creating an environment down to the smallest details with fun and excitement to make the best experience possible. Having just spent two years planning the perfect celebration, I’m excited to share my favorite tips and tricks that can be applied to any event, no matter how big or small.
