I wanted a Porch Sign, so....

Our front porch

I'm sure you've seen all the super cute signs people are hanging on their porches to add some curb appeal and make their porches more welcoming. I've wanted one for a long time, but none of the ones I found made my heart sing. It's really hard when you know exactly what you want and what you want isn't out there.

See how I updated our fireplace

Updating with a bit of paint

When we bought our house, one of the things we loved was the fireplace, but we weren't in love with the brass trim on the fireplace doors. Well, I finally got around to changing that and it didn't cost a lot to do.

We adopted two kittens!

Bella & Sophie

The hole Jasper left in our hearts when he died couldn't be filled with one kitten. We had to adopt two!  Meet the newest members of our family! Bella and Sophie!  Let me tell you, they're creating quite a stir in our household.

Sadness Descended with an Unexpected Goodbye
