Where Creating a Beautiful Home Doesn’t Have to Be Hard!

Love Our Real Life is all about everyday living.  From DIY projects, to decorating, to organizing, to day-to-day experiences that are real for my family and yours.

Finding ways to enjoy your home while navigating life can be challenging and I’m here to show you some tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way!


LOTS of DIYs and home decor solutions for the regular person are shared here. My goal is to help you turn your home into a place you love to be without stressing your budget!

Let me sift through the projects that give the most impact, so you don’t waste your time trying a DIY that won’t bring value to your home. After all, this is real life and I know you don’t have time for all the things!

Who Is April?

I love DIY projects, crafts, and organization! Over the years, I’ve completed hundreds of projects that have helped make our house a home, and I am so excited to share some of these with you.

But Love Our Real Life is more than DIYs – it’s a gathering place for like-minded women.

We all can create a home we love with a little bit of effort. Our homes are where we are raising our families. It is SO important to be happy in the places we spend so much time.

My mission is to help you find ways to appreciate your home instead of focusing on the negatives.

I love decorating, but really, I’m best at piecing together things I see and love, and trying to make it work in my life.

Not everything I do is a success, of course, but my goal is to keep on trying.   Sometimes I learn just as much from the failures as from the successes.

More About April

Until just a couple of years ago, I had two jobs! I am the owner and author of Love Our Real Life AND worked as a speech-language pathologist.

My SLP job was at a hospital outpatient clinic, treating adults with speech, language, cognitive, and swallowing deficits. It was my occupation for over 23 years! I feel incredibly fortunate to have found two different yet fulfilling occupations!

I am a Jesus lover, wife to Jason (check out his soccer site!), a mother of two young adults, and ultimately, just a girl who likes to pour myself into a project that interests me to see if I can make it my own.
