I have a funny story to share (I’m going to paraphrase so it doesn’t take me forever). Since the fall of 2022 I’ve been attending a course on the Catholic church (yes, RCIA, for those of you that know what I’m talking about!). I wanted to learn from the Catholic Church what the Church actually […]

The Fireplace Makeover in our Mississippi Home

We’re making progress on the bathroom. We’re not as far along as we wanted to be at this point but we’re alright with that. We have a lot of LIFE happening at the same time (make sure to subscribe to receive our weekly newsletter with those deets!) and we’re just… Tired! That being said, we […]

Guest Bathroom Progress + Serena & Lily Sale Picks

Well folks, we are finally tackling the room most in need of some serious lovin’ in our Mississippi home – the guest/kids bathroom.

Guest/Kids Bathroom Remodel Plans – Our Mississippi Home

Patterned Tile Bathroom

Considering Stephen and I started this in June 2021, it feels pretty surreal to finally be sharing the reveal of the primary bathroom in our Mississippi home. And to think that we thought it would take us two months max!!! Oh bless our precious hearts… Instead of two, it took us nine months to complete […]

The Primary Bathroom Reveal in Our Mississippi Home

How We Learned to Drywall + Bathroom Progress


Something I really wanted to incorporate into the new office is a big writing space on the wall. I had a giant whiteboard in my office while working in the corporate world and I’d spend hours sitting in front of that board brainstorming and coming up with new ideas. It seems as though my best […]

Something that I want to do better at is sharing progress of our work on the house on here. I try my best to remember to share all of the steps on my Instagram with you but I will admit, sometimes we get on a roll and I forget to pick my phone up. It’s […]

The Office is Painted! How We’ve Cut Down Painting Time

Textured Ceiling Removal

Even before we bought our 1980’s home in Mississippi, we talked about and researched how we could remove the textured ceilings, or more specifically stomped ceilings. There is nothing wrong with textured ceilings, we just love the look of flat ceilings and thought it would make the home feel refreshed. It’s totally a personal preference! […]
