One of our greatest pleasures is waking up while on the road and finding a local cup of coffee. It's about so much more than the jolt of caffeine to get us up and going. It's the experience that makes one feel as if they are living amongst a new city, with new people--immersed fully into another's scope and experience. We love a great cold brew or americano with oat milk, don't get me wrong--and that's mostly what this list is about. However, a coffee shop that offers a welcoming aesthetic that is customer centric and people-forward helps it climb the ranks in our books.
Since 2017, we've visited 140 coffee shops. We made a top 10 post in January of 2019 that covered our top 10 shops from our first two years of searching. This new list adds an additional 10 coffee shops, all of which we visited in 2019.
Of all the bathrooms that we have renovated, this one was in the best condition to begin with. While I did not love the finishes, it was actually in pretty good shape. Really, compared to other other projects, this room felt like a palace! (Who remembers the EGR bathroom that had leopard wallpaper with pink stripes?) Regardless, this room was still a ton of work. We removed and replaced every inch of this space.
We are so excited to talk to you guys about this TV! I have not gotten excited about a new piece of "technology' in years...okay, ever. Our living room TV had been lagging a bit. This did not fly with Ty on college football Saturdays. Being a kind wife, I encouraged Ty to research TV's...specifically the Frame TV, which I had heard several bloggers mention prior. (Ty, who had never heard me "encourage" him to look for a new TV, realized that this gift was as much for me as it was for him!) The Frame is much more than a TV...it's also artwork!

First condo reveal post! Yay! We have been spending the last few weeks slowly putting this home together. The living room was the first on our list as it is where we spend most of our time. As I referenced in an instagram post last week, the palette for this condo was inspired by several trips to 30a this year. While we loved all of the Mid century elements of our last home, we didn't feel as though that design would fit this condo. We decided to go with a "Modern coastal" vibe here. We're deeply in love with 30a's white beach homes, linen furniture, and blue accents. Creating a home that reminds us of our favorite place has made this feel personal and home-y, especially during these dreary winter months!

When it came to planning our trip to Hawaii, we were as overwhelmed as could be. Which island(s) should we go to? For how long? With so many beaches and locations to see, which were the most beautiful? Typically, we like to have at least a rough outline for our travel excursions. This time around, we decided to rely on Hannah’s aunt (a Maui resident) and gut feelings. Below, we have a step by step guide of how to do Hawaii, removing some of the confusion and clutter.
