Welcome To West 5th Love!

As we invite spring in with open arms, I thought it was time for me to step back into the blogging world. My hopes for West 5th Love is to create a space where I can share what I love most with not only the people I love, but you the reader. Things might be a little slow to start but I’m hoping we will be fully functioning within a month or two. What you can expect to see is a little bit of everything ranging from DIY projects (happening at West 5th, my home being the true inspiration for the blog) to my latest read and I can guarantee there will be some random ramblings as well.  Hope you enjoy your visit to West 5th and hope you stay with me for more blogging adventures!
