Now, nobody likes moving. I mean, the actual MOVING part. Of course getting to be in a new home is usually an exciting experience, but getting all your crap there – that’s the hard part. 

This will be our third move in two years, our last being eight months ago. So we’ve definitely learned a thing or two about moving into a new place. 

We’ve been apartment living the past few years, so we definitely don’t have as much stuff as an entire house may have, so we may have it a little easier.

But that doesn’t mean we don’t have anything! So far into packing I’ve filled well over 20 boxes, and I’m not even done yet! It’s definitely an exhausting process to do all by yourself, but manageable.

Monthly Memories | February & March 2017

I feel like I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from the blog, but man oh man has life ever been crazy and busy. 

I’ve never had a start to a year have so many things thrown in my face. I feel like there’s been more happen in these past two and a half months then I’ve had in the past few years altogether. So many emotions have run through my body, and the most new to me has been grief.

We lost someone so near and dear to me in January and I still have no idea how to deal with this never ending pain. I truly take each day as a gift and have held my family closer than ever before.

Cute DIY Shelves For The Home

Shelves are one of the greatest way of adding some storage, decor and practicality all at the same time. There are so many different variations you can do for shelves – there’s practically endless possibilities. 

Sometimes shelves can be mighty expensive though (even if they’re literally just a piece of wood!).

They can be used in the bathroom for extra storage and a little decor, in the living room to hold photos and books, or in the office for a pop of color and art. 

With us moving within the next month, I’m so excited to experiment with our extra space by adding some cute shelving. 

I’ve gathered together some awesome DIY shelves from some talented bloggers, in order to save a few bucks but still have some adorable and practical units.
