Life of a Blogger | My Not So Perfect Home

For some time now,  I have felt convicted with the perfect photos of my “perfect” home. And then last week happened.  It was a tough week, and it revealed how human we all are.  How much we need Jesus (and His grace) and how imperfect we all are. Social media allows us to create a seemingly […]

Bathroom Remodel – South Cypress Tile

Bathroom Remodel Reveal

The master bathroom remodel is DONE! This renovation was supposed to happen three years ago when we first purchased our home.  There was a major leak under the shower, and we meant to have it fixed right away… …but life (roof repairs, pool heater, water heat, air conditioner, furnace and lots of other 20-year-old home problems) kept […]
