Hi all!  I’m April, a recent Oklahoman by way of Virginia.  My husband and I moved here in January with our 2 kids and 3 dogs in tow and we are trying to embrace and redo this crazy old house we bought.  I blog about our adventures here, mostly DIY decor and furniture building.  I’d love for you to join us on our journey!
