The past few months have been a mixed bag of some good, and some less good things, but now I'm back and ready to get back to the swing of things here at Seefoodplay. Life threw a few things at me, some planned, some unplanned, and I've definitely taken this blogging break to re-focus on what's really important, and in doing that I realized that it all comes down to one thing: balance. I've been . . .

Any Big City dweller can appreciate the rarity of such a thing, so that was just icing on the cake! After almost 10 years and 5 different apartments in . . .
I have been wanting to create my very own bar cart DIY project for months, so I’m very excited to reveal our version of the Ikea Bygel makeover! If Hubby weren't around to stop me, I probably would have spray painted everything in our house gold. Seriously, I’m obsessed with it!
