New Business = New Home Office!

"Loving a home for a long time doesn't actually mean getting it to a certain look and then never changing it. Crafting a home you love is more about embracing the idea that one's tastes evolve over time." Apartment Therapy It wasn't long ago that we revamped our home office. At the time our office resided in a 4th bedroom. We have since turned that room ...continue reading

Home Depot Lighting

So I was in Home Depot gathering hardware for a chandelier we are making over (pics coming soon) when something caught my eye. Actually, a lot of something's caught my eye! It is rare that I find a strong selection of lighting in a hardware store that excites me but Home Depot is killing it right now! Check out these pins.

IMG_VictorianMassionBrochure

I've been off the radar for awhile. Intentionally. I started pursuing my real estate license over one year ago. It was time to get serious. I had 2 months to complete 9 classes, pass the school exam and pass the state licensing exam or I would have to enroll and pay all over again. So for January and February I buried my head in the books to make it ...continue reading

Common White Girl

IMG_FuzzyBoots_001_web

We recently spent the evening trying to arrange a meet-up with Rimmel's parents. Between dinner, Rimmel getting off of work late, Madison's baseball practice and trying to make sure Hallie wasn't bored, we were frantic, unorganized, and had a complete meltdown in communication. At the end of the evening, as the four of us were snuggled in the car driving ...continue reading

Madison’s Mad Skills

IMG_Madison_Baseball_SlidingHome_Featured

I've mentioned my Madison before. She is my beautiful 13 year old daughter, my first born but still my baby. We received some really AWESOME news this week for Madison. I will get to that in a minute, but first, let me tell you a little about my baby girl. Madison has been playing baseball (yes, baseball, not softball) since she was 5 years old. She is my ...continue reading

A Prayer for Influence

During the process of seeking God's will over our business ventures we came across a passage of scripture that literally set our hearts on fire. I have read through this Psalm before, but this was one of those moments when every verse was so rich and poetic it nearly lifted my heart right out of my chest. It was quite literally a heart song that somehow, ...continue reading

Setbacks

IMG_pumpkin-chocolate-chip-bread_002

Day 3 working from home. It began with a feeling of excitement. "What will I accomplish today?!" I wondered. In an effort to reduce the amount of stimulants in my body and save money (#newyearsresolution), I put my decaf coffee grounds into the Keurig instead of my usual bold K-Cups. I take my coffee bold and straight, no sweetener, no creamer. Today's coffee ...continue reading

New Year, New Us!

First Day Working From Home Together (Yep, no make-up, no shower. Just keepin' it real.)

We are already 7 days into 2014. Hard to believe! Often with a new year comes new challenges, a new mandate, or maybe even an entirely new direction. That is what is unfolding in the Narsi household. As of January 1st Rimmel and I have both resigned our full-time positions in ministry to pursue our dream! Actually, it's God's dream. It's the dream He ...continue reading
