Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog, Rise and Renovate! My name is Hayley, and I started this blog in June of 2016 to share my husband’s and my adventures renovating our home.
A little background about me: I grew up in a small town in Iowa and was raised in a cookie shop. Literally. My mom owned a cookie store/cafe and would bring me to work every day until I was old enough to go to school. I worked there growing up and it was a huge part of my life until we sold it in 2014.
After graduating from Iowa State with a degree in Marketing, I moved down to Arizona, as my family began migrating south. 5 months later, I met my future husband! Andrew and I got married in April 2016 and closed on our house just a few days before.
Our house had been foreclosed upon when we bought it at auction. An online auction. My husband and I were sitting at work, frantically texting each other as he was putting in bids. You can read more about that here.
Andrew and I are slowly but surely renovating our home and turning it into our dream house! We’ve already “flipped” multiple rooms. Take a look!
