A lot of things have been up in the air for me over the past few years - moving multiple times, breakups, career changes - but I'm getting to the point where things are calming down and I just want to feel settled.  If you're anything like me, then you get it.  Sure there are still a lot of things out of my control, but little by little I'm starting to figure out how to roll with it.

The Serena & Lily Summer Tent Sale


Just a quick post today to let you know that one of my favorite home decor stores, Serena & Lily, launched there Summer Tent Sale this morning!  Serena & Lily provide some of the best coastal decor items I've seen (seriously, I want to live in their Westport store) and right now everything in their sale is 30% - 70% off.  I've been eyeing some of their beach towels and bedding for months now and may just have to treat myself.  Happy shopping!

Why Rent If You Can Buy



Though interest rates continue to rise in 2018, they have not increased as much as we initially expected and are still considered to be low. Yet a large portion of Americans are still renting properties, instead of enjoying a home of their own. Consumer reports believe this is an issue because of a buyer's lack of trust in their ability to purchase. It's a long-standing notion that a buyer needs 20% down towards the cost of the home in order to move forward, but this isn't true. With countless down payment assistant programs and closing cost roll-ins, a homeowner could move in with as little as a couple thousand dollars.
