I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Dori, the face behind This Full Life 5. The purpose of this blog is to inspire budget-friendly home design and decor. My goal is to provide practical tips for making your home beautiful without breaking the bank!
I love vintage, farmhouse, and cottage style and work to incorporate these into our home. I enjoy thrifting and antique shopping and get giddy over a good deal!
I’ve been told often that my style is simple. And I would agree. I don’t like clutter, and while I wouldn’t label myself a minimalist, I’ve always believed in less is more when it comes to decorating my home…and really, life. Simple can be beautiful, too!
A few fun facts about me:
I married my high school sweetheart 15 years ago and together we have three amazing kids!
We are sinners saved by grace who love Jesus and our purpose in life is to serve Him in everything we do.
I’ve been a stay-at-home mom, a homeschooling mom, and most recently a working mom.
I owned a small furniture business for several years while staying home with my kids and I love to refinish and repurpose!
My hubby and I are currently remodeling our fourth home. We love to DIY!
My absolute favorite thing to do is to spend time with my family and friends!
I also love to bake, especially with my kids! Some of the best memories are made in the kitchen.
The 5 at the end of “This Full Life” is because there are 5 people in our family!
Life can be crazy, especially when you’re trying to raise and provide for a family. My hope is that you will find your visit encouraging and refreshing and that you can find something to inspire you while you’re here!
