Hey there friend and welcome! This week’s #romancingthehome theme or challenge was to create a romantic bedroom, just in time for Valentine’s day of course. Now, while I do love a bit of romance, we generally don’t celebrate Valentine’s day in our home. It just doesn’t fit in to who we are as a couple.
Can you believe that it nearly the end of January, because certainly can’t! I don’t know where the time has gone 🤷♂️. I hope that all those resolutions are still going strong!

But, as I… Read More A Christmas Tradition: Baking and decorating cookies
