Well it was time for us to move on to our next home adventure and this meant preparing ours for sale. With the proper staging and styling, we were able to make sure our small house had a big impact on everyone that came through. Within 4 days, we had accepted a close-to full price offer and not long after said goodbye to our first home. A few of you saw the before pictures so I wanted to showcase how we left it - newly finished hardwood floors, new paint/trim, master bedroom built-ins, refreshed powder bathroom, new landscaping, and of course updated furnishings, lighting, and staging. Small fixes can make such a difference in your home, especially when listing to sell, so don't hold back and take pride in the little things!
Well it's technically spring here in Milwaukee, but the temperature sure doesn't seem to think so. We may finally be able to shed our coats but it's definitely still sweater weather. Lucky for me, there's nothing I love more than a great chunky sweater with a pair of chucks.
I have a feeling I've said that a few times before.
I've found myself falling in love with the many sweater trends going on and am absolutely a sucker for anything light pink. Although these sweaters aren't necessarily meant to keep you extra warm, they are a great example of making something practical, fashionable. So what're your thoughts on these three trends?
You can fill your house with great furniture and a crazy amount of throw pillows, but it's the little things that will make it truly feel like a home. The best & worst part about this? These items can be inexpensive but they make take a while to acquire. It's easy to run to West Elm and pick up 50 small, unique pieces that will absolutely add the flare you're looking for, but these won't be personal. Don't get me wrong, I love me some marble and gold knick-knacks, and West Elm is my favorite go-to, but these are best used as small details to incorporate in with your personal pieces. Look above for example..
Our special day was so magical that I wasn't sure how a 15 minute video could actually capture it all. I was completely wrong. I am so grateful we made the decision to have Christian DaCosta as our videographer. Now, 6 months later, we are able to look back and relive our day again, feeling those same emotions as if we're in it today.
Words cannot describe how thankful I am for those that contributed to our day,
and make our relationship the fun adventure it is.
I have been dying to share all of our incredible wedding pictures since just two weeks after! Lucky for us our photographer Sara Lynn Photography was quick and amazing about getting them back to us. The delay came from potentially submitting them to a publication but I think we all got a little antsy waiting to here back. Finally we decided to end the wait and get them out there! I couldn't possibly share all of my favorites.. I selected 450 - gasp! I know. So instead I have provided you with the ones I think show our story best.
This is a representation of who I am, and a few of the things I love. I am excited to share with you a little bit about my life, and glad you're along for my journey!
