Hey there! I’m Sallie, the face behind The Urban Acres. I’m a wife + homemaker living in Tulsa, Oklahoma with my husband Andrew, and loving every minute of it!
I started this blog last year as a hobby, and a way to document some of the fun things we were doing in our first home. Now I am thrilled to be able to call this my full-time gig!
Earlier this year my blog got a major boost when I won a contest and was named the Mrs. Meyer’s Home Maker! I won $75,000 + the opportunity to take my blogging passion to the next level.
You’re probably wondering “How did you spend that money?” Well, I’ll tell you — we bought a house! This past June, Andrew and I packed up our starter home and started work on renovating the home of our dreams.
Now we both spend every waking moment (or so it seems) turning this old house into our new home, and I’m documenting the journey on this blog! Follow along every week to see how we’re ripping out walls, tearing out tile, and painting everything to make this place ours.
My hope is that this blog will inspire you, and challenge you to take simple steps to start making your house a home you can enjoy.
