April in Review

You may have noticed that there wasn’t a post on Monday. Let’s just say, technology decided to not be my friend. Hosting your own website comes with a lot of back end maintenance, something this non-tech savvy girl isn’t always comfortable with. But, after some PHP changes {whatever that means} we’re back in business! Just be patient with me as I get caught up.

I made my husband’s favorite childhood treat, peanut butter squares, for his birthday in March and shared the recipe with you guys. It’s a perfect dessert for all the warm days ahead.

I’m in the thick of trying to finalize our lighting selections for the house. Let me tell you, there are so many options and styles out there for lighting. I shared some of the lighting ideas I have for the house along with some pretty lighting inspiration.

We heard from another furniture painter, who lives here in Greenville, and her journey of becoming a paint stockist and shop owner.

And last but not least, I shared the progress being made on the addition. It’s so exciting to see everything coming together!

Renovation Update

I love Spring and warm weather, but one thing I don’t love about it are the storms and bad weather that come with it as well. Saying a prayer for all those affected in the south by the recent bad weather and the weather still to come in some parts today.

Be safe everyone!
