Shane and I love to do upgrades to our home. It adds our own personal touch to our house, but it also gives it a little face lift too. I think everyone should do little things around their homes every now and then to freshen things up. Home is for sure where the heart is, however I feel that it is so important to make your house no matter how big or small feel warm and welcoming for not only yourself and your family, but for all you love. I don't think you have to break the bank in order to achieve a tidy, welcoming environment that surrounds you. There are a lot of do it yourself projects that I have found while randomly searching through great blogs. Simple idea's that can help everyone in the decorating and organizing their spaces. Updates and remodels can be something as simple as changing out your pillows on your couch or adding a beautiful wreath to your front door; to an entire room makeover or landscaping overhaul. Whatever it is you plan to do; Make sure it will mean something to your entire family and yourself. I think meaning behind what surrounds you will make all the difference in the world!
