My Exercise Journey: Why I Stopped and Why I Came Back

This is not a decorating post. If you’ve followed for a while, you know I love talking lifestyle stuff. Family, faith, cooking, and well, a whole hodge podge of things. Mostly decorating, yes, but I like to talk about all the things. Especially if I think they’ll help or inspire you. I wanted to talk […]

Why We All Should Watch This Is Us

Gah. You guys. It’s the morning after the Superbowl, and if you’re a This Is Us fan, you know what also happened last night. I’ll try my very hardest not to spoil anything in this post, but I’m guessing most of you have heard about this epic episode, even if you don’t watch. And if […]

But Where Does It All Go?

*This page contains affiliate links for your convenience. For more information, see the FTC guidelines here.*     One of my readers left an interesting comment on a photo on my Facebook page a while back. The photo was of one of my kids’ rooms, and it was a ‘blog worthy’ pic – you know the […]

*This page contains affiliate links for your convenience. For more information, see the FTC guidelines here.*   Oh friends. Let me tell you about last week… I woke up on a rainy Monday.

June 2017 Roundup!

I mean, we’re all busy people living our busy lives and I’m sure you don’t check this page every day…or every week…or […]

Repurposed Shelves in My Daughter’s Room…and Realizing I Need To Start Acting More Like My Mother.

Remember my little DIY Coffee Bar we made a couple years ago? (By the way, how was that TWO YEARS AGO??) I loved that thing. But as all things seem to do in this house, the dining room evolved and I rearranged and things changed…I bought a mug rack that I ADORE for that spot: […]

The Easiest, Thriftiest Curtains Ever and The Year of Perfectly Enough

Happy 2017, guys! Hard to believe I’m saying that already. I hate to see the holidays go, but there’s something wonderful about January, isn’t there? I get all reflective with the dawn of a new year. I’m not one for making resolutions, but I do like to reexamine things a bit, and try and better myself. […]

That Summer We Let Go…

Long time, no blog, huh? This is typically my ‘off-season,’ since the kids are off school, but this year it seems to be even more so. I mean, there a MILLION and one projects waiting here for me – our family room is a hot mess, what with the wall coming down in early June […]

Because “Marriage is a Garden”
