I know that people usually start an “about” page with their age, marital status, and just any old fact they would tell a stranger; I don’t want to do that. Instead you’ll hear MY story.

It all started when my husband, Jacob, and I got married at 21, which is an age that many people consider “too young”. Within the first year of our marriage we lost a dear friend, several family members, and moved into a huge house where all of our stuff fit in the living room. From the time we moved in I wanted to turn this house in to my dream home, well now you get to start that journey with me. We did some light painting and of course decorated every room as we could. Then my husband had to have an emergency surgery that put all plans on hold for several months, but we worked through it. We just had our 2 year anniversary, and if we are being honest it feels like we’ve been together 10 years. Now we start the real work, giving this house the makeover it needs and we want.

I am Mackenzie, but you can call me Kenz. I am 23 years old now. I have the most adorable beagle puppy (her name is beans and I’m sure you will get to see plenty of pictures of her), and I love my life more than I ever thought possible. You’ll get to know me a lot more through my posts, so stick around. The fun is just beginning!
