How a Silly Game Taught Me Security in Our Home Needed to Be a Priority

As a kid I remember playing ding dong ditch. My friends and I would ring the doorbell of a friend’s house and then hide when they answered the door. Of course, we never hid that well and our friend always found us. But it was all in fun and a thrilling game to play when you were ten years old.

I think I found a great solution. Read More

FINDS OF THE WEEK // The Fiddle Leaf Search

I love plants. Especially real ones. So this week I have been on the search for a fiddle leaf fig plant. The big question is “Real or faux?” I know a real one is by far the best, but sometimes a girl has got to be practical and sneak in a faux one every once in a while.Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 10.51.14 PM.png
