house of cards season two valentine's day is around the corner!

this year, my hours are spent taking care of H, playing with K, or sleeping so i haven't had much time for DIYs...but here's a quick recap of last year's projects!

goals for 2014

happy new year!!

we've welcomed our little munchkin into the world -- and i'm in a totally polar opposite frame of mind than last year. last january was about organizing and participating in apartment therapy's january cure (you can read about my progress here, here, here, and here).

this january we're all about survival.

...but one thing i did find extremely useful last year was making a list of home improvement-related goals for 2013. it helped us focus our energies on projects we felt added value to our house or just plain made us happier.

he's here, he's here!

our beautiful baby son was born last week!

though there are quite a few projects we have in mind for our home (more on that tomorrow), i'm not sure when we'll be back to regular posting...but i hope you'll stick with us! :)

if you find you're going through withdrawals without us, i'll still be pic-spamming regularly on instagram (@meandering_mari). ;)

happy new year!
