The Best Neutral Interior Paint Colors

I’ve received so many questions about what paint colors we used in our home to create a clean and neutral aesthetic. So, I decided to track them down and create a post with links to all of them. A little backstory: In 2013, when we bought our first home, I knew I wanted to go […]

5 Things Making Me Happy

I’m not going to lie to you, the last few months have been brutal. California is being ravaged by lightning storms and fires, I’m anxious about the state of the world, and our country, and the upcoming election, we’re adjusting to distance learning and working from home on top of each other, and don’t even […]

Redefining Having It All

What does “having it all” mean to you? I love this question because it forces you to hone in on what feels important and essential to you as an individual and clarify your core values.
