By the time you guys read this, we will have moved out of our first home. (We’re currently staying with my in laws for a few weeks until the new house is ready.) I truly do love this house so much and I’m really going to miss it. We bought it in June 2009, 3 months before we got married. We had nothing but our clothes and the little bit of furniture from Chris’ apartment.

It was a lovely ranch home built in 1960 that was gutted and renovated with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. It sat on an acre of land which is one of the things we are going to miss most about it. We’ve had so many awesome Memorial Day get togethers and birthday parties here in the backyard with loved ones that I will always remember.
This is where the foundation of our marriage and family was established. We brought Maizah and Caliana home from the hospital here and I started my blog and business here. We’ve had some hard times here, too. However, the thing I appreciate most during the good times or bad was that this was home – somewhere we could always come back to and regroup.
I also love this house because it gave us experience as homeowners (aka fix all the problems yourself). Our most memorable moments:
So many memories! While Caliana will probably never remember this house and Maizah has a few memories that will stay with her from it, Chris & I will never forget it.

Helping people excites me.
And no, nothing here on this site is rocket science. Just glimpses of my everyday life - what I eat, what I wear, the products I use, how I work and how I take care of myself. If that’s your sort of thing - you know, life - then this is totally the place for you.
