Welcome to Hammers N Hugs – a DIY lifestyle blog of inspiration for the home and family.
I’m so glad you’re here!
If you choose to stick around, then you will find DIY tutorials, before and after renovations, nutritious and delicious recipes, product reviews, giveaways, fitness and nutrition tips, and lots of fun!
Let me introduce myself.
My name is Ahna. That’s “aH-naH” with an H. Yes, just like the princess (let it be known that I came before the movie Frozen).
I love DIY projects and inspiring others to embark on their own.
I am passionate about living “well” which includes sharing recipes that are packed with all-natural, nutrient-dense ingredients without sacrificing delicious flavor.
I have two Masters in Nursing, and in my spare time, I am a nurse practitioner in the emergency department.
I am married to my DIY partner-in-crime, Zach, who is a high school computer programming teacher and football coach.
Basically think handy – nerdy – smoking hot jock – and that is my man.
And yes, he is actually that good looking in person too. XO
Lastly, I am mom to the cutest little construction crew you have ever seen – Gracelyn, Caleb, Lillian and our son to come through adoption.
The motto in our home is Work Hard. Play Hard.
Hammers symbolize work, sweat, and tangible outcomes – which is right up this girl’s alley.
But there’s a reason this blog is not just called Hammers.
Hugs symbolize the idea of rest, togetherness, and the security of being loved.
The concept of togetherness, of loving and being loved – although perhaps not as tangible as hammering two boards together – builds a home as much as a hammer builds a house.
We hope our family adventures inspire some of your own.
