Tile Floor in Little Brick Outbuilding

Tile Floor in Little Brick Outbuilding

So when we left off, we had the heated subfloor installed in David’s office/ little brick outbuilding.  (Post here.) Since then, the tile has been laid!!! Check it out! I decided to do a tile from Home Depot reminiscent of bricks but a whole lot thinner (and cheaper, added bonus!) than bricks.  The main goal...
Lessons from Havana

Lessons from Havana

David and I just returned from an incredible week in Havana, Cuba, where we got to experience so many new things we didn’t even know were possible.  Throughout the trip I found myself marveling at the many oxymorons that constitute Cuba… it is a surreal place and probably impossible to fully understand.  And while I...

Things You Can Buy for $34,000

A little bit ago, we got an estimate for simply fixing up our pool to make it functional, and as I am sure you guessed, it came back at a whopping $34,000…  Don’t get me wrong, I expected the estimate to be high (say $20-25k), but not THAT high!  I mean, this estimate didn’t even include adding a...

Paint Colors of 2015

New year, new paint colors!  Am I right?  Here’s a look at what top paint companies/ magazines/ decorators/ color-minded people are calling the paint colors of 2015!

Charlottesville Real Estate

Charlottesville Real Estate

A while back I posted about beautiful farmhouses for sale in the Charlottesville area and I thought I’d share some new ones on the market with you!  These are just to-die-for-beautiful.  (No, I’m not being paid by any real estate company to broadcast these– I wish!– but I just like to swoon over pretty farmhouses...
Christmas Windows

Christmas Windows

Last year I was out of town for 2 weeks in December on a business trip; this year I’m practically bedridden due to two fractured heels.  Nonetheless, the show must go on and that can’t stop Christmas from coming.  It will come without ribbons!  It will come without tags!  It will come without packages, ribbons...

I know it’s been a while since I did my weekly inspirational blog posts on Thursdays but no better time than the present to start them again! This week I thought I’d share an article from Architectural Digest.  It can be found here.   This 1816 farmhouse is apparently in the Shenandoah Valley and owned...
Bye Bye, Mobility!

Bye Bye, Mobility!

  I think the saying goes “God won’t give you any more than you can carry.”   Well He must have a high opinion of our family, that’s for sure!   After my 6 week postpartum check-up, the ob/gyn cleared me for any kind of exercise and said everything looked great.  I started going on long walks...
