Our Goals, What’s Holding Us Back, & What Jenna Kutcher Told Us

I had another blogpost scheduled for today and didn’t plan on writing this post, but last night I started to think more about our goals and aspirations (it seems ideas always strike at night time) so I decided to post in our Instagram stories and ask YOU what dreams you are holding back on. Honestly,...

Best of 2019

How is it almost the end of one decade and the beginning of another? I remember when I use to think how far away 2020 sounded and now that it is here, I can’t help but reflect on the past ten years and how much things have changed. Justin and I met ten years ago…...

    Wintertime Playlist

    There are things we love about the different seasons- but wintertime may be one of our favorite times… from the warm sun on cool crisp days, the crackling of the fire going inside, the layering of cozy textures, time spent with family, and the fresh beginning to a new year. We have created a Wintertime...

            We have a freestanding tub in our master bath.  We chose a freestanding faucet and controls.  One real advantage is that it has a handheld waterhead which comes in really handy for cleaning/rinsing the tub.  Wall mounted faucets won’t give you that feature.  Hope this helps!ReplyCancel
