hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

Kye Kye
What, you may ask, is Kye Kye? It’s a very cool new band. I can’t take any credit for discovering them.  My husband is the one who enjoys finding unique and interesting music. I’m happy that now I have a platform, of sorts, to share the stuff he finds that I really enjoy. (Honestly, out of all the great music he comes across, I usually only love about 10% of it. We have different tastes in music. He wants me to add that it’s because I like country and some mainstream music. 🙂  Anyway, the awesome thing about this band is that they’re believers, but their music is not what you would normally associate with “Christian” music. And I don’t mean to put down the Christian music genre at all- there are some really great Christian artists out there whose passion is sharing the good news of Christ with the world (and who can fault them for that), but you know what I mean about the “Christian music” sound, right? Kye Kye is really good, and a huge majority of their lyrics come straight from the Bible. Below is my favorite song, called “Broke”. I’ve posted the lyrics below the video where they’ve broken down exactly where each line comes from in the Bible.

I broke in the silence
to repeat what I’ve done in the past won’t change me (Phil.3:3-11)
I broke when you told me
I could try all the time
but my ways won’t change me  (Eph.2:8-9)(Gal.3:1-3)(Ro.3:20-22)

We tried this, but we failed
we know this but we’re too blind to see (1Cor.2:14) (2Tim.3:7)
that there is freedom within me (Col.1:27) (Ro.6:4)            .
your life brought light for all to see (Jon.12:46) (Mrk.4:11)

When I was lost so I, so I thought
that I was searching all alone
like I was lost so I didn’t know (Gal.4:1)
what I was keeping all along (Col.1:27) (Ro.8:11)

I knew from the moment my mistakes all stood out
your light’s my only safety (Ro.10:3-13)
oh all the times that I didn’t look your way (Mat.13:22)
look what I was missing Lord you fill in every space
that I replaced instead of you (Eze.36:26-27)

Revived us, we will sing (Eph.2:4-6)
restored us, you are the source to breath (Jon.4:14)
ignite us to a need to bury everything I never want to be (Ro.8:13-14)

And this is Kevin’s favorite song, called “Trees and Trust”

Kye Kye just released their sophomore album called Young Love, which you can purchase here. Oh, the other thing that I really like about them is that three of the four band members are siblings. Love that.

Let us know what you think!
