Before I dive head first into what you’re here to see, I thought I’d give you a little background on who I am.
I live in Akron, OH (I know…..you’re jealous, right?)…just kidding, it’s really not that bad. I promise we don’t all live in the middle of nowhere surrounded by farm animals. We love our neighborhood and plan to stick around for the long haul.
I work in communications at a Fortune 500 company in the Northeast Ohio area. I’ve been there for about five years and love my job. It’s given me a lot of the skills and knowledge that I hope to apply to this blog, and is part of the reason I’m finally starting this thing.
I mentioned my husband, Josh, and I bought our first home a little over a year ago. We have a sweet little pup named Benjamin…..you’ll be seeing a lot of him. Yes, we are those annoying people who love their dog more than humans and tend to treat him as the King that he is. Josh has a “Ben voice” that I have come to love a little more than is probably healthy and spend way too much time talking to my dog via my husband.
Anyway, if that hasn’t scared you away yet, I started college in an interior design program. It has always been my passion. I ended up changing majors since my 20 year-old-self was more concerned with making money right out of college than following her dreams.
Needless to say, buying a house has been LEGITTTTT. I can finally do all the things I wish I did for a living on my own home….and you know spend a shit ton of money instead of making it. Smart, right?
I plan on doing a “before” blog post soon, showing all of you what our home looked like when we first purchased it. It’s sad. But it has come a long way, I promise!
