The butterflies are out and the flowers are blooming – my allergies are in full swing, so that must mean it’s spring! I might not be able to breathe through my nose… and I might have to carry around travel size tissues in my purse, but it that just means it’s my favorite time of the year. Down here in Texas, the summers get to about 110 degrees on a daily basis, so we tend to take the spring VERY seriously. It’s just about the only time of the year you can sit outside and enjoy the flowers and weather without feeling like your about to die. That’s why the hubby and I have been getting our backyard nice and purdy for this lovely time of year.
After nearly 2 years of marriage, the hubs and I were fortunate enough to purchase our first home back in September of 2011. We had been searching for months and simply didn’t have much luck. We finally found our perfect match and just knew right away that it was the home for us – a recently updated 1970’s ranch home in the beautiful city of Ft. Worth. Although the previous owner had made many great updates, we needed to add our own touch to the home. After many months of hard work and many gallons of paint, we are getting close!
Before and after pictures will be coming soon;)
Hey guys – Ok so as you can see I’m a bit new at this whole blogging thing. And a little nervous to add to that. To be quite honest, I never thought I would ever start one myself. The only reason it actually came to mind was because of my hubby. Basically, he got tired of me complaining about all the “guy” shows I was forced to watch each night. (Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Top Gear and Discovery Channel, but sometimes it all becomes just a bit much!) He then muttered “Why don’t you just start a blog or something??” Completely aware he only said it as a joke and to get me off his back, a light bulb went off. Duh! Why not? I’m addicted to anything design related, so at this point, it only felt natural to start one. And when I say addicted… I’m not exaggerating. I think I have a serious problem;)
