Please join me and my fiancee, Alex, on our journey.  We are planning a wedding and remodeling a home on a budget! I am renaming my blog as a clever suggestion of my good friend Shelby.

Well first off I got engaged and bought a house in less than a month of each other.

You see I will be planning a wedding and remodeling our 1910 Historic Frederick Maryland property!

We have dated for over 2.5 years from May 7th, 2017. Fun fact we have the same birthday but 7 years apart. Aug 31st!

The Ring!!

We repurposed a family heirloom, my grandmothers, engagement ring with the help of Dejan Studio Jewelry 105 N Union St #15, Alexandria, VA 22314  We also got the band created. We saved a bit of money by using the diamond. I am very happy that Alex allowed me to choose my ring and reuse a special part of my family’s history. We are trying to be more frugal and minimalistic. We also made another big life decision.

Check out our house to tour:

So please join us on our 2020 adventure and happy healthy holidays!
