This past year has been full of so many up and downs. One of the most monumental highlights was the purchase of my new home. It is a fixer upper but it has been my pride and joy. I rented for four years and I learned to be content to rent. However, renting in Virginia can be very costly. Purchasing my baby has been the best decision I have made.
I am still considered a recent graduate (under 5 years) just being my career, so I am on a very tight budget. On the other hand, I have very expensive taste. So I am wanting a steak on a hamburger budget, but with the help of Pinterest I am able to accomplish this goal. I have finished most of the rooms in my home but some rooms are still a work in progress. I am a bit of a perfectionist so this has been very trying; but I am learning it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful. I want to be able to live fully within the mess, with the imperfections.
I have many DIY projects because I am not afraid to find a good bargain and get a little dirty! Decorating the home is an adventure and a journey, a fun one! So come along with me and enjoy the ride.
