Small Business Saturday – why it’s important

We are in Better Homes and Gardens

**So I really wanted to post this several weeks ago, but our website got hacked not once, but 3 times within the last month and we had to divert the page to the store. The hack bot evidently thought it would be funny to replace our pretty pictures on our homepage with text saying that we sold drugs and sex. Lovely, right!** These last few weeks have been pretty crazy epic around here, right!?! We have a baby, our nephew commits...

To say our life is busy with 3 boys is an understatement but life is beautiful during this chaos. Our third son, Finley (Finn) James Piercy was born on October 3rd, 2018.

Construction Update

Someone asked me the other day how I manage the craziness of construction, building a new website, owning a business, being pregnant and being a wife/mom. To be honest, it hadn't truly dawned on me how much we have going on until she mentioned it. I guess when there is lots going on, I just ride the coattails of excitement and progress! But now that I think about it, it is a lot and I am tired. So after I...
