Oh Yes We Did: Our DIY Master Bedroom Walk-in Closet Makeover

Oh Yes We Did: Our DIY Master Bedroom Walk-in Closet Makeover

With us moving in together next year and with an upcoming wedding, Eric saw it high time to renovate his master bedroom closet to utilize maximum space and accommodate two people. Having purchased his home new in 2007, he has slowly been setting out to make things his in the house and upgrade the “contractor grade” construction materials most folks end up with in a new place.

Since I last posted, a lot has happened.  It has been nearly a year after all.  I ended a long-term-relationship that […]

Remembering the Beautiful, Smiling, Jennifer Campbell, 32

Remembering the Beautiful, Smiling, Jennifer Campbell, 32

I really hope, when the sadness fades a bit, that we don’t remember Jen for having breast cancer. That we remember her for her signature smile, her laugh, confidence, independence, determination, strength, grace, humbleness, and positive energy through it all. That we remember the things she took joy from in life, like playing with her nephew Ben, Meetup.com groups, dinner parties, rescuing dogs, teaching, traveling, friends, family, bike riding, and motorcycle riding with her dad. We need to be thankful for the time we had with her and not dwell on the time we lost. “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
