Zoey in the City

Zoey is now 2 months shy of 3 yrs old and I’ll have to say that we didn’t really go through too much terrible two tantrums (knock on wood!).  Sure, there were a few incidents where she went a little crazy but I can probably… Read More

Desk Makeover

One of the things that my husband and I enjoy doing is finding used furniture and repurposing them into wonderful functional pieces. Thanks to our humble beginnings growing up for introducing us to thrift stores! About 2 yrs ago, I found this vintage sewing machine… Read More
