About Me

Hi my name is Maritza and I am city2farmhouse.  I’m a mom to an amazing daughter and the wife of a supportive and most patient man.  We have been together for 27 years (God bless this man he’s put up with me for so long) and married for 22 wonderful years.  I am an educator by day, but love DIY projects, rustic items, vintage charm, farmhouse style and making my house a happy home.  I started this journey following my dreams and doing what makes me happy. I am a great fan of woodworking and am currently trying to build a business making wood items for the home along with other home goods.  All the while gradually changing my city home into farmhouse style. I love watching HGTV and am a huge fan of Fixer Upper (who isn’t right?) where I get most of my farmhouse inspirations.  The concept came after many years of wanting to remodel my kitchen and the inspiration of farmhouse style (thank you Joanna Gaines).  The hubs and I tackled the project as DIYers and I can’t lie some help from family along the way. In the end I have to say we didn’t do such a bad job for amateurs and the kitchen is now one of my favorite rooms in the house.   Follow me on my journey from city to farmhouse style and everything that happens in-between as I work on making my dreams come true.

I don’t know who wrote it, but it’s a quote I’m living by. Here is to making dreams come true and doing what makes you happy in life.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you keep coming back.
