Well hey! I am so glad you stumbled across my little blog and decided to look around. My name is Karissa and I am the creator of this lovely space. I live in Metro-Atlanta with the love of my life and two crazy pups. I am a physical therapist and my husband owns a local gym and is a certified personal trainer. We have two rescue pitbulls, Draco and Luna. 

meMy husband and I got married in 2014 and moved into a sweet little Cape-Cod down the street from where we live now. While we did our best to make this our home, it was a rental and I had a hard time thinking long-term. When you feel like you shouldn’t even make holes in the wall to hang a picture, it kind of stunts your creative flow! We set out to find the perfect home and settled on a ranch-style house in a sweet little neighborhood with a big back yard in the fall of 2016. This blog is a way to share my shenanigans of fixing up our new home and making it ours. Being first time home owners, we are learning as we go.

So…sit back, grab a cup of coffee (or glass of wine!) and read on!
