MEET THE BLANCO BUNGALOW

June 11, 2019

As you may know, we bought our first house, back in October, the cutest little Spanish Bungalow in Long Beach, California, which we’ve since named, The Blanco Bungalow. And just as most people’s first houses are, this is a fixer upper :) Built in 1920, the house is one year shy of 100 years old, crazy!! So that goes without saying, we have our work cutout for us. But I will say, I’m pretty impressed with what we’ve been able to accomplish so far with hardly any money and little to no experience. Maybe it’s a girl thing, or I’m just getting old:) but there’s nothing I love more than Before and After home pics. I could go down that rabbit hole for hours!! Hopefully you feel the same way🤓 Let me take you along with me as we renovate & restore our #BLANCOBUNGALOW

I decided to start with decluttering and organizing my drawers.

11:11.  So what does it mean anyway?  Well, for what seems like forever now, I've been seeing 11:11 pretty much on every day.  And yes, I've known that it's a good omen and that if you see it, it’s a sign from the Universe that you’re on the right path.  So, naturally, I became obsessed.  However, I never knew all of the magical hidden meanings behind this auspicious number.
