Wow, you guys… our wedding is a little less than a year away, so it’s about time that I start making some headway in planning it! So many of you have been involved in our love story, whether it has been following it on Instagram or even providing advice when I was still a single girl figuring things out in Philly. For these reasons and more, it feels really important to me to include you in the planning stages of our very PNW wedding, so I wanted to share a bit of our visual inspiration for the big day and see what you think! Also, I’d love to know if you’re interested in continuing to hear about this stage in our life.
After taking on soooo many projects in #mytinybungalow, I feel like I’ve learned a thing or two about how to take care of myself during a renovation. If I don’t, my skin will break out, I’ll be exhausted and cranky and my body will ache for days. Sounds like the worst, right? It is. And I know I’m not alone in this. I’ve heard from so many of you that you’re also living in a construction site. Which is why I want to share a few tips for some simple acts of self-care that can seriously make a reno project less painful. Keep in mind that I am still figuring things out as far as self-care goes because it definitely is more of an evolution, but these key steps have really helped me lately!

Oddly enough, one of the most intense debates that Sean and I have had over the kitchen renovation is about lighting! Apparently, we both have a lot of opinions when it comes to the finishes, shape, size, and location of the lighting. Who knew? Anyways, thankfully our lighting sponsor, Rejuvenation, has everything we need (and more) to choose lighting that will make both of us happy and compliment Sarah’s gorgeous design plan. Here are some of the options we considered + the combo we ultimately chose.

Whether you live tiny or not, everyone is hungry for more storage space, right? Every time I post to Instagram about our storage hacks, or even to ask for advice, I am blown away by how many people in ‘normal size’ homes can identify as well. Although I have to say, we tiny house folks usually have to get a bit more creative when it comes to finding places to tuck stuff away, especially if you live in an area with four seasons like Seattle (not to throw shade at residents of more temperate climates… they just don’t have to store as many coats!). And even though I’ve been working hard this year to eliminate “stuff”, we still have plenty small space challenges in #mytinybungalow. After three years of living small, we’ve picked up a few tricks along the way, so I wanted to share them with you today!

Our kitchen renovation is rolling right along. Currently, we’re working on updating the electrical work and removing the old knob and tube wiring, then comes leveling the floor. But let’s talk about something a little bit more fun and way prettier: material selections! Sarah, aka Room for Tuesday, has worked really hard to narrow down the finishes, textures, and materials for our kitchen remodel and they are truly stunning. Today I wanted to share some of our thinking about the choices and give you a glimpse into how it’s coming together so far.
p.s. be sure to follow me on Instagram because I’ve been sharing soooo much behind-the-scenes footage of our renovation.
