Seize the Day!

I am NOT a morning person. Not even a little bit. I think it’s cruel and unusual punishment that anyone need wake up before 10 am. But, I’m a mom and my children don’t exactly share my circadian rhythms. Nor does my husbands place of employment, he needs to be out the door by 7:30 for his job, so like it or not I must be up by that time as well. Let me just say, I am well aware that many people get up way earlier than this, so I really shouldn’t be complaining…but I’m just trying to be honest and I honestly loathe getting up at 7:30. So, moving right along. There is one thing that helps get me out of bed at this ungodly hour in a mood that is only slightly pissed off as opposed to homicidal, and that my friends, is COFFEE! Mama needs her coffee in the morning and that is that.Read More »

“…this is just like the silly astronauts that eat floating food in space!”

The above quote is what I heard my son excitedly exclaim as I was driving him home from Montessori school today. I had just picked him up and we had stopped at our favorite coffee place to get him a “not-so-hot chocolate with LOTSO whip cream,” because I’ve turned him into a warm beverage addict just like myself. As I was driving along sipping my chai tea latte and listening to face-palm worthy news on NPR, I hear him pipe up from the backseat, “Woah! Mom! This is just like the silly astronauts that eat floating food in space!” OK, quite down NPR, my son is in the process of being profound. “What did you just say Max?” I asked incredulously, “This is just like the astronauts we saw! In outer space, their food floats and then the guys throw it and they eat it!”   Read More »

My name is Brenna Hess. I’m a 30 something mom-wife-virgo-perfectionist-honest-effervescent-gal who loves design. Read More »

Happy New Year!

Today is the day! It is the first day of 2017 and it is my first official blog post. Woohoo!
As kismet would have it, ‘Julie & Julia’ is on tv tonight as I write this post. I choose to take this as a sign that I’ve made the right decision and now is indeed the time to start blogging. I mean, who ignores a sign from Meryl Streep and Amy Adams? Not this girl, no siree bob! If Julie can write a blog about Julia, then so can I…about design…not about cooking, no one wants to read about my ability to burn water 😜

New Year, New Blog!

My name is Brenna and I am about to begin my blogging journey tomorrow on New Years Day…well, technically this is my first post, but lets just consider this a “testing 1-2-3” moment, shall we?
This is going to be the place where I come to write about my passion for all things interior design. There will also be some mommy stuff thrown in, because I have two littles and I can’t fully function without bringing them up on a daily basis…In fact, both the kiddos are buzzing around my feet right now as I write this post. They say, “Hello!” So, as I was saying, this is going to be my happy place where I can wax eloquent about design.
