Don’t blink, they say! And *they* are right! This first year with Stella has absolutely flown by. With our first child, we eagerly anticipated each new milestone – first laugh, first words, first steps – and I think that made time go by a little slower. But, with our second, our sweet girl, I truly […]

I’m so excited to finally share this backyard transformation with you guys! It’s been over a year in the making and I couldn’t have done it without the very talented crew at Cross Creek Nursery! The photo above is my attempt at DIY. I clearly had zero idea what I was doing. Who knew plants […]
We’re so excited to reveal the living room at our 2400 Carrington new build! I wanted to design a living room that allowed the living space to flow seamlessly from indoor to out. I think one of the coolest things about living in the city is getting to know your neighbors and I really feel […]

I was talking to a friend of mine that’s a couple of years older than me when I was getting ready to turn the big 3-0 back in January. I remember describing my quarter-life crisis to her and feeling just so not ready to step into the next decade. She told me “my thirties have […]

In case you missed my Instagram story, we are moving into our basement! Well, not literally. When we built our house 4 years ago we designed the basement to be a separate apartment so we could make some extra income. But, we knew one day we would need to grow into that space. The space […]
I call this the modern Italianate because it honors the Italianate style of the neighborhood on the exterior but has modern elements on the interiors.
