About Me

Hello and Welcome to Old House to New Home! We are so excited to have you here and we hope you stick around and browse!

An excerpt from our Founder:

I started this blog because we truly love cooking and home DIY. My husband is so sick of listening to me talk about recipes and craft projects that I knew I needed another outlet to share my ideas! (just kidding, he loves to listen to my ramblings…)

I grew up in a tight knit family where cooking and sharing meals was the center of every family gathering.

To me, cooking someone a great meal is the one of the best ways to show that you love that person. I was never much into DIY or crafting until the last couple of years. Since we bought this house, I have really gotten excited about fixing things up and making them my own. There is no better way to truly make a house a home than by creating everything yourself. I am definitely not an expert, but I am learning as I go!

As for me professionally, I am a Spanish teacher at a local high school. I absolutely love spending my days hanging out with 15 year olds! There is no one funnier or more interesting than a teenager and I feel blessed to get to spend my days teaching and interacting with them. At home, it is me, my husband, a rambunctious preschooler, an infant, and a crazy little dog. There is never a dull moment in our house!
