Going through a home renovation can be a tough and daunting task no matter how many times you’ve dared to tackle a project. There will always be unexpected surprises.. especially in older homes and sometimes things simply just don’t go as you had planned. This was our first crack at remodelling an older home and the crazy part..
Nothing beats the lazy days of summer..
Slow mornings, limited schedules, snacks all day, and sunny late night dinners. Annddd then good ol’ September 1st rolls around and we all enter PANIC MODE!! September can be one of the most hectic times of year with adjusting to new schedules, school drop-off and pick-up, before and after school programs, you know the drill..
When on the hunt for our new home we really struggled to knock items off our ‘want’ list. We looked at both new and older homes, but seemed to continue to run into a more traditionally laid out home with several smaller rooms like living room, family room, kitchen, breakfast nook, dining room, the list could go on..
I can’t even believe I am writing this post, but here we are!! I’m determined to be nothing, but happy and excited for our little girl as she graduates from preschool to kindergarten.. and maybe a little nostalgic too. They grow up so quickly!! (queue the ugly cry!!)
Father’s Day is just around the corner!! With the chaos of us preparing to move over these last few months we both decided to limit the gifts for this year.. buutttt I thought it would be a great idea to get my hubby’s input on some of his absolute favourite things and share them with you in the case that you’re on a list minute hunt for ideas! Pat’s big on simple, functional items.. and though he can be a bit of a hoarder LOL.. sorry babe!! I will say he does get great use out of the things he buys. We’re big on Amazon in this house too, so a lot of his favourites I’m sure you can easily find there!
