Truth moment. You can look up my salary online. We are def below poverty level. I’ve often been ashamed of what I didn’t have. Here I am...I look fly but I’m poor. I’ve wondered if a love interest would shake me cause I’m not a six figure kinda girl. Yeah I’m a scientist but I’m in grad school. I had a successful business and partner stole everything, I’ve had two houses and lost everything in a flood. I can’t even afford window treatments for all these windows. 😩 I don’t entertain because I feel ashamed. But now eff that. I don’t have a lot of money but I do have some soul. This is my sons room. I could have put up curtains but I invested in art for him. Everyday he wakes up to these pieces and tonight I realize I’m doing exactly what I need to do.
I realize I’m angry that I lost everything I thought I deserved. My skylight, my two wood burning fireplaces, my wine cellar, my French doors, and bay windows. My home gave me some twisted sense of self, but I loved having my family over and it was cozy and it felt like I had done right for once. I’m letting go of that. I do right daily. I have what I have. I haven’t had cable in years to save up for 4 passports. We got them last year!
My kids ask for things that I can’t buy. I don’t fret over it but I am often in my head about what they deserve. I told them the other day I’m not getting another job just so they can have what they want when we have all we need. Mommy is spending her time on max chill.
Instead i finesse my finances with special things like art. Cha Cha just shared how he stares at the pieces in the morning getting lost in them. Eventually I’ll be able to afford something to go there but I’ve taken all those coins to invest in their clothing line. I’m honestly doing my best and I’m not ashamed of where I am in my life. I have a safe and clean home. I’m not in an abuse relationship anymore, I have books surrounding me from all sorts of genres, I have food from nearly every continent in my cabinet, I have plants to welcome the sun, I have space to stretch and freshwater to bathe. I am valuable beyond what I can afford. The type of home I have doesn’t determine my worth. #truthis#lovehome

Before & after pantry remodel 📷 .
I don’t know why I thought today was Thursday until I started reading posts that it’s hump day 🙈 anyways, as you can see in the before picture, the shelves were too long. We forgot what was behind the first few items & it was difficult to keep organized. We remodeled it in a way that we can better keep organized & can easily access what we need! I used subway tile as a back splash & marble top for a cleaner, slick look✨
Knowing how to tie your landscape together ensuring everything flows and has balance can be tough.
Without properly designing your landscape you can end up with spaces that don't match, feel disjointed and don't get used.
Utilizing our proprietary design process we will design a beautiful, functional, new landscape you can be proud of.

When that late afternoon, Summer sunlight hits just right and your home is all aglow...👌🏻
Found this extra narrow hutch @Homegoods and it fits perfectly next to my dining room table, so you still have plenty of space to walk by.
It came in all black, so my husband stained a piece of wood to add to the top, so that it matches our distressed wood table.
You can also see my little #creeper in the top left corner. 🐶 (Yes, he’s also black & white)
Side note...I’m working on my punctuality 🤭
