    Fence and Block Retaining Wall Renovation

    I love doing improvements to our home. It’s always exciting choosing paint colors and changing the look of an outdated part of the house. I love adding personal touches to make the home feel more us and less like the previous owners. Our house is about 20 years old so it has needed some renovations.

(Knock on wood we don’t have to deal with any structural or foundation issues for as long as we live here!) We took on this little project in the summer of 2018 while remodeling our backyard. Our fence was looking…

I tried having gel nails on and off for a while but that didn’t really stop the breakage or chipping. Last year, in January 2018 I discovered SNS. I first heard about SNS nails through social media and decided to give it a try. Luckily I have a nail salon near me that offers the service and they are known for…
