Fresh Photography

I can't help looking through our engagement pictures every now and then. It's crazy that it hasn't even been a year since Michael proposed! My wonderfully talented friend, Kate, with katelovephotography, took our pictures and she did an incredible job! Here are just a few of my favorites:


She's the best!

Suitable Substitution!

The wall in our kitchen "eating" area is quite long, and fairly large. I had a collage up there, but I think I'll be moving it to the hallway after we paint. So, what to do with wall??...well "not pay a bunch" was the bottom line. So I took to the internet!

I found these mirrors that I thought would open up the space since there isn't a ton of lighting in there. I also love symmetry sometimes (most times)

Notice the multiple mirror great!
The mirrors above are from Ballard Designs and so great, but not at all in our price where did I turn?? Target of course! Talk about several winning seasons with Target Home Decor lately!
I found these! (below) Three of these mirrors on our wall will look great!  I'm waiting to show you what it looks like because we still need to paint the wall where they'll be, so for now - you get to use your imagination :)
The best part is...I got them for WAY less than other places! Not the exact look, but similar!
I'm so thankful for Michael and all the hard work he's pouring into the house! ...way to go babe!

Master Haven Complete

We did it! I'm so happy with the outcome of our master bedroom! I love, love, love how warm and homey our room feels whenever I walk in! The best part of it is that Michael built our headboard and our matching nightstands! He has become incredibly talented at building furniture and fixing up things around the house! Click here to see the before pictures when this room belonged just to Michael and it was two shades of green! :/
