11 questions that Amy from Commona-my house has set for me to answer:
- What is your dream home? My dream home is a place with 5-10 acres where my family can live off the land (as much as possible)

As a kid I remember standing on the side of the highway waving a flag welcoming home returning soldiers from Desert storm Lee’s moving song was always playing in the background.

- What are 3 of your favorite blogs and why do you love them? 1. Natural mama- I am a little bit crunchy and totally proud of it! I have learned so much from Genevieve. Blissful and Domestic, Danielle is an amazing mother and homemaker. I am in awe of her ability to stretch her tiny budget into a comfortable life. SAHMaegan, I’m not so sure how to explain this one... I just love what Maegan writes. From the first time reading her I was locked. She also reminds me of my aunt.
- How long have you been blogging and why did you start? I have been blogging since August. I decided to start a blog as a way of self expression. I tend to keep my emotions and feelings to myself my blog has helped me open up to the world.
- "I'll ----------- if it's the last thing I do". Have a mini farm where we grow the food that feeds our family.
- Best vintage or decor find of all time? I found a beautiful Queen Ann style buffet for $40 on craigslist. We painted said buffet navy and now use it for our TV.
- What is a home trend that you have tried/followed that you've regretted?
Painted drop cloth window treatments... (they just didn’t turn out how I wanted... the paint made them stiff).
