When you find the perfect wreath for the perfect “thingy” in that space you didn’t know what to do with.....AND your husband can measure and hang🤣 #builderswife #blessings #holidaydecor
Let’s talk about Ash+Jake & this capture. This is their home that Jake is personally building with his own two hands. I tend to bring weird things with me to engagement sessions- I had this array of items and I knew how I wanted to picture them or so I thought, but then there was wind it was cold... & it clicked, I saw the house they were building- it turned out better than I could’ve imagined. One day when their house is done they can pull up the photos from this engagement session and say- “remember when.” This is in their future bedroom. All the feels. Oh and then I got some real The Notebook house scene vibes and I was like- ok. Ya. Dig this. #radlovestories #authenticlovemag #dirtybootsandmessyhair
Hubby is a builder which is very handy when you want an artwork put up on a wall 😊 (a wall he built in the first place I might add, so lucky to have had him build our beautiful home, he is so clever). He had to exercise a LOT of patience yesterday as I umm’d and ahh’d where this canvas baby should go!! 😳 Anyway, I think I might get him to frame my canvases in future. One thing I’ve learnt for sure this year is that we’re a cracking combo, he and I, for many different reasons... this is just one! I paint, he presents! 🔨🎨💜 #builderswife #thisladylovesatradie
Y’all, it’s been a HOT minute. And lots has happened. A. WE TRAVELED THE 🌍. Well, actually more like Spain and The United Kingdom... and it was just amazing. We can come back to that later. B. We have INSULATION, SHEET ROCK, AND BRICK. Yup, all those are caps. The insulation and sheet rock felt so flipping fast compared to everything. But mind you, there was HVAC and Electric before this- plus inspections, so let’s just be real there. All inspections did go well. Our hiccups still happened (like yesterday, with the brickers maybe making it flood a little bit), it all resolved itself and I thank my lover builder of sparing me from unnecessary stresses.
I am SO diggin’ our brick choice and STILL in awe I’ll get to call this place home. Tonight, we had our finalization for cabinet drawings and we are once again rockin’ and rollin’ and prayin’ for NO rain. Also, swipe for Daddy’s arrival to the job site. 👉🏼

And so it begins again! Starting to get excited as I start picking out finishes for our new home!
With SO many choices, it makes it tough...do I go with some gold finishes, or maybe some dark navy cabinets? I LOVE some of the newer design touches that are available these days. What are some of the new trends you're loving?? This will be the 4th house we've built together. And when I say built, I mean we've layed the wood floors, done all the trim work, tile work, painted the entire house, so on and so forth. My husband has owned their construction company with his dad for 17 years. Of course with any business that you start from the ground up, there are ups and downs. But thru it all they've trusted the Lord and His plan and He has blessed them for it. ❤
Now + Before 📖
We removed the curved cabinetry and built a new staircase railing but apart from that; just cosmetic changes to the entry hallway and bench seat
Now + Before 🐋
Most of our reno was purely cosmetic but in this space we removed the curved wall to create a bigger butlers pantry and of course removed the screen that was blocking the view! #1994
