Florida Life

You know the saying "when life gives you lemons, 
make lemonade"...


well, lots of lemonade over here lately.
For the last 6 months we have been enjoying our new

I am beyond exhausted.

I will be sharing soon all that I was able to do.
For now, 
here a sneak peak of our home.

Stay Frugal,
