Good Memories of Projects Past

The month of August is always a very full month for me. 
We get to celebrate 2 birthdays, one of which is mine.  This year, I hit the big 3-5!  I can't believe I am really that old. When my parents were that age, I thought they were ancient!  Funny how we perceive things so differently when we’re kids

In the month of August, Brett and I celebrated our 
12-year mark of marriage. 
Life has had its good times and heartaches.  But I couldn't ask for a better partner in life.  Brett has had my back our entire marriage.  He has stood by me with 100% through all the hair brain ideas that I’ve had over the years.  He has helped me fulfill my dreams in so many ways! 

 Here we are on our wedding day!
We were YOUNG!  
The funny thing about this was we were 24 and 23-years-old and at the time I felt soooo old... LOL!

I still LOVE my wedding dress to this day! 
I wanted something more classic so it didn't date itself. So far so good! :)  
(at least in my opinion…he he)

Here we are 12 years later, looking older (hopefully wiser) 
with 3 kids and one on the way!:)

 Since we are talking about the good old days, 
I thought it would be fun to post old pictures from our first home...
A BLAST from the Past!

 Our First Home was in Logan, Utah.I LOVED it there! 
This home was built in the 1900 so it had LOADS of charm

Entry Way


I have ALWAYS loved white cabinets!

As you can see, I have always surrounded myself with 
trim work, arches, wood floors and yummy colors!


Over the years, I have gotten better at picking paint and hopefully decorating! It looks like I was going through my BRITE STAGE :) LOL

these pictures bring back so many great memories. 
At the time these were taken, I was around 20 some weeks pregnant with my second.

It seems like Brett has always been busy at trim work (somethings never change)I am such a slave driver!(jk)

He has definitely gotten better at trim over the years. 
To the point that he AMAZES me what he can do! 

So cute…he looks so YOUNG!!

That was SUPER fun for me to share! 
Can't wait to see what the future brings for us!


  1. Probably one of the most touching and lovely tributes to a partner (and your great taste) I've ever seen.

    Happy Anniversary and Cheers to a Thousand Years more!

  2. I loved that house. IT was a great house. A lucky find for both you and Krysta.

  3. Fun post Heidi! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Fun post Heidi! Thanks for sharing!

  5. So sweet! Happy anniversary and happy Birthday! I wish my husband would be just as excited as yours to do trim work and house projects.

  6. So cute! I forgot how cute your first house was! You still decorated so much cuter on your first house then I'll ever be able to do! Of course you have gotten better but you were born gifted!

  7. What a fun post to read - I bet it was fun to write too! I'm glad you had those pictures from that first house - really cute! Seeing it brought back memories for me too - I was pregnant with Carly when we visited you there.

    Happy belated b-day and happy anniversary!

  8. I LOVE your laundry room in your first house.
