Have you ever had windows installed before? Oh good, me either! I partnered with +Window World  for my first window installation and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was! Here's four things I never realized about window installation: http://wp.me/p2lHql-7uH #windows   #windowinstallation   #replacementwindows

Hi guys! I need a really big favor! I'm in a contest right now to win $5000 for the Humane Society!! All you have to do is vote for the room I decorated for the twins and the Humane Society wins! I think that will go a long way in making a difference for those who can't speak for themselves! Here's the link to the contest: http://www.paintoverchallenge.com/vote/
You can vote once a day every day until Thursday, June 9!

So one day I photographed my kitchen, right?
And after I edited all the photos and posted them to the blog....I discovered my apples weren't perfect.
Here's my story about apples and imperfection and realizing there's amazing in all of us:

Working on making over the upstairs bedroom. Starting with layers of all white bedding and our new +Leesa Sleep   mattress.
But at the end of the day I couldn't resist adding a little color to the room!
