January in Review

Now that we will be officially starting renovations soon, I thought it would be good to start doing a monthly review every month. That way, if you are new, or if you have missed a post, it’s your chance to get caught up on all the happenings.

So, without further adieu, here’s what happened in January.

We bought a house {although this post technically went up December 30th, it’s sort of where the renovation story starts, so I figured it was essential to include}.

We went on a family vacation to Breckenridge, CO.

I’ve been pinning and dreaming about our soon-to-be new kitchen and rounded up 7 inspiring kitchens that caught my eye.

We all had dreams and aspirations for our careers as children. And I think as children we were more in tune with our passions and talents more than we are as adults. I shared about what I wanted to be when I grew up and how I’m re-discovering that childhood dream as an adult.

With the day of love right around the corner, I showed you how to put together this simple ruffled Valentine’s Day vignette and how to make an ombre felt heart.

My first wedding contributor post over at Uncommon Designs went live and I showed you how to make your own diy silhouette cake toppers for your wedding cake.

Last but not least, I love the look of textured walls, whether it’s with wood planking or board and batten. I showed you some additional ways to add texture and dimension to your walls and which ones I might want to incorporate into our new house.

Happy last day of January!
