Flipping for Books and Booze

A little over a year ago, I shared the desk makeover I did for Fella and alluded to a matching bookcase. And then wedding planning took over my life and the shelf slowly turned into a storage area in the garage…

The weekend we returned from the honeymoon, I started and finished the bookcase makeover; that’s how determined I was to get it done. Continue reading

Bridal Banter

We’re in the home stretch!

We have just under 6 weeks until the wedding, and I’m not sure I could be any more excited than I am now.
