Hi! I’m Jess! I’m a wife & mom, a creator and a finder, a maker and a “try to do it all at once-er”. I love DIY’ing, thrifting, and iced coffee. If the words vintage, free, DIY’ed or anything brass inspires you, you’re in the right place.
I’ve got a marketing degree, my MBA, and 7 years of retail management experience, but I am much happier with my gig as a stay at home mom & blogger. I grew up in Minnesota, went to college in Michigan, studied abroad in Finland and Austria, Moved to Denver, North Dakota, Michigan, and now Wisconsin!
I’ve got an amazing husband, two little boys, and in 2017 we adopted our daughter from Haiti!
This blog got started while we lived in the house with the BrightGreenDoor as I documented our progress of flipping that house. From there we moved to the Auction Adventure House, and then on to the Retro Ranch which we flipped from top to bottom. Then the Marquette House which was in our favorite town of all time. Now we’re working on “Our Stone Ranch” in Milwaukee!
I love inspiring readers to create a home that they love. If you’d like to follow BrightGreenDoor I’d love if you’d sign up to receive my e-mails!
