where i am: july 2019

I am content. I honestly didn’t know what else to write. I am busy and a little overwhelmed with all the things I want to get done but in the best way possible. I have so much content I want to create to help guide other people to be their best and design an incredible life for themselves. I LOVE coaching and I’m running full speed ahead with it. I’ve been heads down for the last few weeks just getting as much done as I can while at home and spending my time off really being off.

a two month speed renovation

It feels like forever ago that we decided to pivot and do a smaller scale fix-up to the downstairs instead of the full renovation like we’d planned!

introducing: brown betty

Appropriately named for her most prominent feature, Brown Betty is our new home! She’s brown on the outside and brown on the inside – even the yard is kinda brown. While I’m not the #allwoodeverything type, I do appreciate her character and the beautiful wood used in her construction. This house needs LOVE. We didn’t have a washer/dryer or refrigerator at move in. The burners on the stove work but not the oven. The dishwasher is questionable enough that we’re afraid to use it. The carpet is original to the house and there are plenty of things that don’t work the way they should, but WE’RE IN LOVE.
