Hello there! I’m Erica and welcome to my little corner of the internet. This is where I share some of my adventures as I DIY my way through life. Here on my blog you’ll find DIY projects, lots of painted furniture makeovers, easy and healthy(ish) recipes, and some other tidbits about my life, and my home.
I have a masters in French and currently work in finance (Nope. Can’t really explain that). I speak French but it’s been so long that it’s probably pretty embarrassing now. I love pirates and I often daydream about selling everything and moving to the Caribbean to live on the beach.
My husband Justin and I got married this past fall after dating for seven years (seven years!). We bought our first house almost two years ago and we’ve put in a lot of blood, sweat, and even tears (his blood, my tears), to make it our own. We have a goldendoodle named Daenerys Stormborn of the House De Sousa (First of Her Name), but she usually just goes by Dani for short.
I have a tendency to dream big but not always follow through, and to make big plans but then erase them all and make new ones. I’m starting to learn that that’s just who I am, and that’s okay.
Feel free to click around and explore, leave a comment or send me an email at email@example.com. I’d love to hear from you!
I’m so happy you’re here and I can’t wait to have you follow along as I stumble through life, one project at a time.
