Welcome Back! (And Our Master Bathroom)

Where do I begin? Hello!!! It’s been three years since I’ve written a post here, which at the same time feels not that long and also another lifetime ago. It’s so good to be back.

I thought I would start Scissors & Sage back up in hopes of using it as I originally intended: as a self-care project. Thinking about the fall and winter we are about to embark on, it is my hope that this blog will help me (and us) stay curious, try new things, get creative, and feel connected.

So much life has happened in the last three years. Last I left things, Anne and I had just moved to Chicago from Philly and we got married at her parent’s farmhouse in Wisconsin. Since then, I started a new job as a full-time music therapist, Anne and I adopted our favorite little (read: giant) dog named Joni, and we bought our first home.

We have a lot of ground to cover, and so much to reflect on as we move forward, but I thought I would start things back up again by sharing our master bathroom refresh from earlier this year. It was a lot of fun to work on together knowing that this is our home to paint however we want! We were so used to the renter mentality that this project felt extra special to dive into. The navy walls (Behr’s “Poppy”) are the before, and the green walls (Benjamin Moore’s “Creekside Green”) are the after. I hope you enjoy!

  2. Hello!

    What worlds away when we crossed paths and you two were on the way to being happily married 🙂 congratulations on ALL the life unfolding.

    I think first time home ownership is one of the absolute most magical things. I LOVE LOVE LOVE what you did with the bathroom! I’m always trying to convince Janet that we should paint our living room, but so far fear of too much hassle keeps winning out 😛 Thank you for sharing, and I really look forward to reading your future posts. Here’s to self care, and the beautiful places we find it.
