Dear Homeowners…

Dear Homeowners, I’ve been using Google earth and I like what I see. How about you move out and sell all your stuff to me? Love, Brittany, future homeowner (Maybe? Say yes?) “That sounds creepy.” Andy furrows his brow next to me at our dining room table. “It rhymes, and it’s endearing.” I assured him. […]

Painting Without Pants: The Living Room & Bedroom Reveal

Remember the television console that almost killed me? Thanks to copious amounts of help from Andy and my mom, I was able to finish it, but out of principal, I gave it the silent treatment the whole entire time.
