My name is Ruthie, I was born and raised in the Midwest. I met the man of my dreams in Nashville, TN and decided to follow him back home to California. First came love, then came marriage, then came the baby in the baby carriage. We have a beautiful little girl named Lucy. My husband got a new job when Lucy was 2 months old and we packed up and moved half way across the country to Minnesota, back to my homeland. We bought a house that needed a little TLC, so here I am! I created this blog to share my journey of home ownership and my passion for furniture restoration. While creating my dream home I also love to spend time with my family, sing barbershop and teach littles about music!
