    Good Morning!! Something about the summer time just makes me happy.  It’s light out from 6am-9pm, and the sound of the birds in our backyard, it just recharges my batteries.  Daniel and I spend so much time outside, we can’t seem to get enough.

    Where do you keep your trash cans?  It’s a weird question until you move into a brand new house and have no logical place to keep them.  Daniel and I started with them directly beside the deck, super easy to toss in trash from the…

    If you have looked at our house tour then you have seen that we don’t have a dining room table currently.  We have a small kitchen table that works great for Daniel and I, but not so much for entertaining.  Since I generally embrace my…

    by Haylie

    This project has paid for itself 12 times over.  Last summer I was able to make my lunch from our garden every day. I saved roughly $800 in 4 months by not eating out for lunch all thanks to our garden box that we built.

    My wonderful husband Daniel loves history, on our first date he actually talked about the history of pepper because he was so nervous!  Though I am normally not very interested in the history of pepper, I found it to be charming.  Ever since we first…

    by Haylie

    I know I talk a lot about sell-ability and the challenges of owning a small home but I don’t want you to think these are bad things. We truly love our small house. It keeps our hoarding to a minimum, and keeps us focused on…

    Backyard or mini vacation spot, they are one in the same now!  We could not be more excited about our backyard!  We started with a blank slate; no grass, no privacy, and a deck.  That didn’t stop the dreaming though, from the day we moved…
