It felt like the next logical step. After years of reading home decorating and diy blogs, three apartments and one house later, I wanted to add my voice to the conversation. So here it is, my Real Happy Space. I look forward to sharing my decorating dreams, diy successes (and defeats) and a little of that yummy decor inspiration so many of us love.
In addition to working as a graphic designer, I’m also a mom to two crazy cute kids, Jacob and Lillian as well as a wife to my smart and silly husband, David. Here is our story in a nutshell. David and I met in college at the University of Missouri. After graduation we married and moved to the Chicago. Like many other twenty-somethings, we enjoyed living in the city for a few years, but eventually decided we wanted some space (and a garage) to call our own.
In 2010 we bought our first home in a Chicago suburb, about 20 minutes from my hometown. Since then we’ve enjoyed living closer to family and friends. Of course, I’ve also enjoyed making tweaks, both big and little, to our home. And I’m not done yet!
My hope is that you’ll have a look around and gain some ideas and inspiration for your own home.
