My So-Called Home: About Me

About Me
Welcome to my little corner of the blog world where I will discuss design, decor, and do it yourself. Much of this blog will showcase projects I have tackled in my own home but will most definately branch out in many other ways. So please sit down (if you’re not already), make yourselves comfortable, and enjoy the DIY! Feel free to leave comments, I’d love to hear your feedback.

My name is Hilary and I have been married to my best friend Dan since June 3, 2006– five years strong even though it feels more like two. We are middle-school sweethearts and I could never have imagined my life without him by my side. We are the proud parents of two furbabies, Penny and Cash, and they definitely keep things interesting around here. We have moved five times since being married, once out of state to New York City, and have now settled into our cozy new house. I have no background in renovation or decoration, but simply love home decor and cannot wait to transform our new house into a home we love to be in.

“For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.”
II Corinthians 5:1
