“Risk And Its Rewards”

We got home from our trip to Puerto Rico last night & I was thrilled (ok, I totally squeeled) to see the article about my family & house in the Washington Post on news stands.

{photos by Katherine Frey}
I was so excited when Terri Sapienza asked us to do the story & when they came to our house to take photos.  The story- one of its bi-lines being “Risk and Its Rewards”- is basically about us purchasing our 70s bilevel & fixing it up on a tight timeline & budget and a little bit about my career.  (Those of you who’ve been following this blog for a while have been along for the ride so you probably already know the story, but it’s a fun read 😉
To read the story, click here.
To see the photos taken, go here.
Buying a house we could afford & fixing it up was a dream of ours.  As a designer, I wanted to use it as a lab & portfolio.  Our house still not “finished” in my mind or at the quality level I wish it could be at, but we love it just the same.  Thanks so much to the team at the Washington Post for including us as one of their stories this week!

Also, I’m guest posting for my friend Alison over at My Little Happy Place about something in my house that really makes me happy.  To check it out, go here.  I love Alison’s colorful & fresh style.

And finally, my cousin’s wedding in Puerto Rico was amazing. I’ll definitely share photos as soon as I have them but check out this one the photographer, Rebecca, shared:

 

{Jen & Brian are so happy together}
Jen’s like a sister to me & we were both maids of honor at each other’s weddings. (Well, I was a “matron” – yucky word! 😉   She truly has found the perfect partner for her in Brian.
 Here’s a pic of the “LBJ’s” (me, Brant – her older brother & my cousin & Jen) in the cave we visited a couple of days after the wedding:
{still having our adventures}

We  are heading out again to another cousin’s wedding, but I’ll be done with weddings for real next week.   The vacation was pretty crazy with 2 little kids and travelling around, but we had a ton of fun and some really relaxing moments.  My favorite part was horseback riding through the forest & beach with my husband.  There was a TORRENTIAL downpour for the first hour of the ride but it was still amazing.    I’ll be back soon!!

xoxo, Lauren

Have you ever thought about including a little bit
more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and
all. But think of if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts
more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could undeniably be one of the most beneficial
in its niche. Good blog! https://hydroxychloroquinel.lm360.us/
