Today's my 27th birthday, and MAN, has it been a year! For my last birthday, my husband, Jonny, was so sweet and thoughtful in planning something creative since we were just three weeks into quarantine. He planned a three hour long Zoom birthday party where friends and family could pop in for any amount of time. At the time, Zoom was a novel thing to us all, and it was so much fun to see so many faces after weeks of being stuck at home. This year though, I told him that the last thing I want on my birthday is to have to be on any more Zoom calls. I'm Zoomed out. This year, we're going to a nice dinner (our first date night INSIDE a restaurant in over a year!) and then taking a trip to White Sands National Park in New Mexico for a few days.
If you follow me on Instagram, you've already met Bonnie. She's an adorable 1940 brick cottage with a sassy little roof swoop over an arched front porch entry. We closed on her on January 8th, and are SO excited to get started renovating and bringing her back to life. I believe that every house has a sort of soul, and if you can get to know a house, it'll tell you what it wants to be and look like. Maybe this is why I love old homes--they have stories to tell. And just like people, the more time you take to get to know their stories, the better you'll know them and what they want to be. Bonnie is no exception.
