my weenie girl is back in my life! i have to tell you, dogs truly are a lifesaver. i read somewhere (probably on Bustle or Buzzfeed, or something) that life is GOING to feel lonely, because essentially no matter how many friends we have or how busy we are, we are alone. i agree.

i am not sure if i have mentioned this before on here, but matt travels for work a decent amount. like including this week :( and next week :( so yes, i do feel really lonely sometimes (although alone time is nice also). but claude saves my life. she makes me feel less scared at night, less tired in the morning, more excited to wake up, more energized and inspired to go for walks and more content to sit inside and stay in. she is such a lovely companion, and without her the sound of the voice in my head might ACTUALLY drive me nuts!

Anyone else obsessed with their pet like me?

Here's some pictures of the renovation going on in our home right now! As you know, we're not living there yet, so the house is pretty torn apart, but hopefully in a few weeks it will be all done!

Updates to the home include:

  • New kitchen from scratch (very fun, but also very stressful!)
  • New bathroom 
  • Adding a ceiling fan to our bedroom
  • Adding hi-hats to our kitchen
  • Re-staining the wood floors
  • Repainting
Here's some inspiration for what it will look like upon completion! We are creating a bathroom very similar to this picture, but the kitchen has a lot of our own flair added in :) I'll share pictures along the way!

Any tips for us? Have any of you ever renovated before - what were some things you learned along the way?
