Greetings from Bend! Kristen Riggle here with my husband, Jacob! Together we are the creators of Homey Homey, a lifestyle blog that focuses on getting the most out of life without breaking the bank. We love to live it up and soak up every moment we can. At the same time, we are still paying off good ol’ student loans. We’ve found that with a little bit of planning and resourcefulness, it’s still possible to create the lifestyle of your dreams! Here we share about our home projects, travel, favorite food+drinks, and adventures in Bend! We both come from art+design backgrounds which weaves itself into everything we do and we hope you find a little inspiration here, too : )
