Wayfair | Homes for Our Troops

Since moving into our new space I have run into a ton of design challenges! We had to start fresh with all our furniture as our old pieces were too large for our new “cozy” home. But these challenges were put into perspective when I read about Wayfair’s partnership with Homes for Our Troops.

I’m going to paint a picture for you, just trust me and stick with me until the end. Imagine having to crawl to tuck your kids into bed. Imagine not being able to access your bath tub or shower. Imagine not being able to play with your child because of basic constructive barriers in your home. This happens all too often to our severely injured veterans. After serving our country, they come home to a new life with new challenges. Why am I telling you this, because Wayfair and Homes for Our Troops is doing something about it.

Recently, Wayfair partnered with Homes for Our Troops on a very special project where they furnished the family home of Marine Lance Corporal John Curtin. Just a warning, you will need a box of tissues for all videos mamas.

The end result of this partnership is like looking at Wayfair.com magazine! Every single detail is just fantastic and makes my heart so happy for the Curtin family. Families like the Curtin family sacrifice so much for our country and deserve every bit of this.
