  • Hi, I'm Maria, and I'm a 20-something magazine editor. I'm married to John, and we live in Iowa in a cozy 1948 brick ranch that needs some TLC. This is where I document the many updates we make to our little fixer-upper. I also like to blog about crafts I make, projects I tackle, parties I plan, books I read, and whatever else that tickles my fancy. I have a dog named Cosmo, and he's frequently the real star of this space. Welcome to my blog! Make yourself at home.
