This is my husband, Adam and I outside our old dorm. We began dating in 2007 after living across the hall from each other our freshman year of college.

To learn more about us, you can read these posts:

We married on August 24, 2012 after dating for five years.

You can read more about our wedding in these posts:

Shortly after being married, we adopted our fur child, Lucy Lou. She is so full of energy and always loves to help out with any craft project she can!

In July 2012, we bought our first home in Saginaw, a three bedroom ranch with a full basement. Owning a home has been a lot more work than we ever anticipated, but it has been worth it!

Follow along as we make our house a home one DIY project at a time,
