Hello!  I’m Arin – the primary author of this blog, and the brains behind the projects and chaos in my house.  (No promises that I didn’t convince my husband to help execute anything with heavy lifting.)


I am married to my college sweetheart, Sam, and we have three crazy, sweet kids together.  Jack is our animal lover, Oreo eater, and constant runner.  He has had an egg allergy since he was an infant, so from time to time you may see me post about a vegan, or egg-less recipe I concocted – and that will be why.   Our daughter, Avé, is the epitome of sweet and sassy and truly keeps me on my toes.  She is witty and will charm the pants off of you if given the chance.  I’ll go ahead and give her credit for my grey hairs in advance!

I’m a stay at home mom to my babies, but while they nap or sleep I find time to tear my house apart and redecorate constantly, and generally make more work for myself.  We recently purchased a new home that is quite a bit older than our previous home, so that has been the focus of most of my projects recently, and much of what you will see. Its been an amazing creative outlet, and I’ve been doing my best to document the process for others to follow along.

This Blog will be a huge mix of our daily happenings in this nut house, and I am so happy you stopped by to take a look.  Please feel free to follow me on Pinterest and Instagram to getting a closer to look into what I have up my sleeve.
