I’m Laura! I’ve blogged on and off for the past decade, blogs that have reflected each significant chapter of my life:

I’ve even blogged for a couple of national sites: as Mrs. Stiletto on Weddingbee and as Mrs. Hopscotch on Hellobee.

But after life got turned upside down with the arrival of twins, a move to the suburbs, and the general craziness of life with three young children and a 9-5 non-profit job, blogging has taken a bit of a backseat.

But the absolute need for a blog has been bubbling up over the past couple of years, after I was bit by the building bug. I even have this gem of a picture of my first ever time using a power tool:


Priceless, right? I’ve since gotten my sea legs in the power tool department, and those skills have been getting put to good use after my husband Steve and I purchased a 150+ year old house last year. A house that leans just a little too much, complete with sloping floors and wavering walls. It’s just a little bit tipsy.

And since that tipsy old house needs everything from significant updates to general day-to-day improvements, design, and decor, my DIY list runs long these days.

Needless to say, the next blogging chapter of my story has begun.
