Since we are all cooped up at home we have reading a lot of things such as this article that speak to what makes working from home more enjoyable for people so I thought it might be fun to share the things that we (Marley and I) swear by that help us stay sane in this current quarantine.

From Ashlee:

  • I make & drink Jamaica everyday.  What is Jamaica you ask?  Pronounced hah-may-kah it's a drink made from Hibiscus flowers.  It's a beautiful dark purple/red color and when mixed with cinnamon, star anise and a little sugar (which is how I make mine) it's a delicious, healthy way to stay hydrated during the day at home.
  • I also love drinking coffee from Veracruz, Oaxaca or Chiapas.  The one I've been obsessed with lately is from Blason.  A

Hanging out with your family or hosting friends on your old, dingy deck is not very appealing. Lucky for you, refreshing it doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. Try your hand at the makeover ideas below!

Restore your decking. Depending on the shape it’s in, sometimes all your deck needs is a little love. If it’s still fairly new, your deck might just need a deep cleaning and a new coat of sealant. There is a multitude of deck finishing and cleaning solutions on the market to choose from to achieve this. However, if it's more worn down, the rejuvenation process may be a bit longer, including searching for larger repairs, tightening any hardware, giving it a good cleaning, applying a stain, sealant, and paint, and more.

You’ve found your dream home and now it’s time to cross all your T's and dot all your I's before it’s all your own. And one of the first items on your closing checklist the home appraisal. So, what exactly is that?

The home appraisal is essentially a value assessment of the home and property. It is conducted by a certified third party and is used to determine whether the home is priced appropriately.
