Hello and welcome to Michaela Graves Designs!
I’m Michaela, a thirty something lady, from a small town in California. I’m an artist with a day job. I’m a home cook, and have a serious obsession with sparkling wine. I’m married to my best friend and I’m ‘Mom’ to 6 fury cats and 1 mischievous dog.
I created this blog a few years ago when my (now) husband and I moved into a 100 year old Victorian house. I knew I wanted a way to document our home improvement adventures so that we could look back on our progress and see how far we’d come. Since then, we have moved from the old Victorian into a slightly younger California Ranch House, and this blog has become not just our progress report for our home improvement but for our entire lives as well.
I am inspired EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. by so many people living their best lives. There are so many amazing individuals choosing to pursue their dreams, live their passions, and make the most of the days, weeks, and years we’ve been given.
I spend every day looking for inspiration, adventure, or anything to bring more happiness into my life, so I can send it back out into the world.
