Summer fever has taken over my body and soul this week, I’m loving these lazy days spent sleeping in and chillaxing around town, I have this feeling my “affliction” will worsen in the coming weeks and I’m not going to fight it. :) I’m storing up energy for the demo we face in July at the new house so I’m distracting myself with a few great reads, I’ll share them soon once I get through the stack. Is there any book in particular you’re loving this summer? 

This weekend it’s another round of ‘Best of the Blogosphere’, enjoy these inspiring spaces and projects! I’m so impressed with this beautiful galley kitchen makeover, don’t miss the story and the before, bravo to Nicole of the House Diaries for creating an amazing modern kitchen.

Welcome to the weekend friends! Great news, this week we closed escrow on that fixer house we bought, I’ll share more details about the purchase process and some ideas for the future remodel next week. I’m really excited to have a blank canvas to transform and there will be plenty of DIY projects as we progress from room to room, more details to come, let the renovation journey begin!

This weekend is another round of ‘Best of the Blogosphere’, each time I’m so inspired by all of the creativity out there, enjoy these spaces and projects !
