my favourite reads from the week
Well my friends, the first week of February is officially behind us. It was a cold & snowy one here in northern Alberta, the kind that makes you want to hibernate inside and never have to leave the house. Although, with views like this, I’m so glad I did!
Besides the freezing cold temperatures, the most exciting news around here this week is probably kicking off our first renovation project of 2021. I’ve had ideas for this one swirling around my head for months now and, between the bold colours and cottage style charm, I’m really excited to see how this one comes together! We’ll be getting started on things this weekend, installing some modern cottage style paneling all around the space, so keep an eye on my Insta-stories for some sneak peeks.
