About Me

Hi there! I'm Michelle Rothmeier.

So glad you've stopped by! I love hearing from each of you and learning a little bit "behind the blog," so here's my story and a little bit about Ten June.

It was a dark and stormy night in the early 1980's when little Michelle came into the world.

Kidding. Let's start more recently.

My husband, David, and I met when we we were eight. Well, I was eight, he was nine. He was the safety patrol officer during bus time at our elementary school. I was the totally cool girl with major bangs and a side ponytail that he eventually asked to his fifth grade dance a couple years later. I said no, of course. Boys are gross. Don't worry, I have pictures to prove all of these shenanigans right here.

After attending middle and high school as good friends (with the exception of the fact that David asked me on a date every day in our fifth period yearbook class... which I politely declined because I had a boyfriend at the time, but of course would still wear David's letter jacket and hit up Chick-fil-A with him for frequent lunch dates), I went to College of Charleston for undergrad while David held down the fort at the University of Georgia. Go Dawgs! Once we graduated, we fortuitously both found ourselves in Athens, Georgia where he was working and where I attended law school at UGA. The rest, as they say, is history.

After being married for a couple of years and living in Athens, we purchased our beloved 1952 ranch in March of 2010. Located in north Georgia, we were so in love with our little casa and all of the "old to the world, new to us" charm it had. You can find the entire house tour, including before and after shots of all of the improvements we made to the house, right here.

 In February of 2012, David was offered his dream job about 75 miles from our house. He made the long commute for awhile, but eventually we put our sweet little house on the market. In a terrible real estate market, it took some time, but we eventually sold our house under a lease-purchase contract in September of 2013. I've documented our entire house selling adventures (including my favorite house showing tips, the updates we undertook to get the house listed and an empty house tour right here.

Meanwhile, in August of 2012, we had our first baby. I'm sort of a privacy freak (and I've had a few issues of baby stealing identity here online... terrible, I know), so instead of using his real name, I call him "H" or "HDawg" for short here on the blog.You can read all about his little life right here.

 In 2013, our adventures took us even farther as we moved, due to David's new job location, around Atlanta from our beloved 1952 ranch to a rental house in February 2013 and then another rental house in October 2013. There's a full tour of the first rental house- a tiny little bungalow located near the city of Atlanta- right here. I'm working up a full tour of the second rental house- a larger, new house in the suburbs, but for now you can find photos here.

Then, in 2013, I announced that I'm one of those crazy people who got pregnant with a new baby even though we had a ten month old. Woot! My second baby's pregnancy story was certainly an adventure. From the announcement about the baby to the gender reveal to my decision to stay at home for awhile to my reveal about the gender mistake at 33 weeks pregnant (yes, seriously!), it was a roller coaster pregnancy that resulted in the sweetest little girl ever, Little Lady June.

Now, in early 2015, my kiddos are 2.5 and 1 years old. Time flies. In between kissing on my handsome man and my sweet babies, I'm back to work as a commercial real estate attorney at a firm in Atlanta. So, as you can tell, we keep ourselves pretty busy at the Ten June household. By day I'm a wife to my childhood sweetheart, a mom to two and an attorney but by night I consider myself a a painter, builder, contractor, crafter, plumber, gardener, decorator and self-proclaimed do-it-yourselfer. Even though we're still in a rental house right now, a new home for us is just on the horizon. I am constantly scheming up plans for our new house- in fact, check out my dream house series for all of my ideas!

And, I'm not gonna lie, I'm also that girl you see at the red light, jamming out in my car to some loud rap music. Word to your motha.

That about says it all... welcome to Ten June!
