Decorating with Plates

1 Jul

I’m baaaaack! After taking the month of June away from blogging, I am thrilled to be blogging again with refreshed passion and dedication. While there was radio silence here, much was astir in our home.

On top of decorating projects galore, Anthony and I spent two of of June’s four weekends with family in town, Anthony walked across the stage and got his CPA license, we purchased a “newsed” car, and checked a major financial goal off of our list: no more PMI! I can hardly wait to share the changes we have made inside our home and begin to blog about topics that delve a bit deeper than my most recent thrift-store-score.

While it was extremely tempting to write a lengthy post showcasing how our home has transformed over the past several weeks, I decided it best to break it down into bite-sized posts. Get ready for home-heavy posting in this month.

Unfortunately, due to HOA restrictions and my inability to get matching paint, the exterior of our door still looks shoddy.
