DIY Holiday Sign

It’s officially December now, and it feels like the holidays are coming at us in full force!  We started my favorite holiday tradition, the Christmas Book Countdown last night!  I was going to try and hold off on starting our Elf on a Shelf for at least another week, but Miss L came home from […]

That One Time When Country Sampler Magazine Came to My House…

Every now and then, this blogging thing leads me to a new experience or opportunity that has me pinching myself.  My dream of seeing my home in the pages of a magazine seemed so far off and “out there,” until it happened last summer. And now, it’s happening again!  I recently had one of those […]


A Colorful Art Birthday Party

Turning five years old is a big deal, and we partied hard last weekend with a themed-party that I’m dubbing, “A Colorful Art Birthday Party.” Miss L. loves to color, craft, paint, and glue things together, so I knew an art party would be right up her ally.  For the first time we let her […]


Thanksgiving Dining Room

You guys, I don’t know about you, but I’m just barely keeping myself afloat.  You may, or may not, know that I teach full-time, run a photography business, and write this blog.  And I have a four-year-old who likes to play the opposite game with me.  You know, I request that she does something, and […]

Old Wood Window As Backdrop for Decor

It’s November and it seems like most of blogland is going Christmas crazy at the moment.  And I get it.  I love decorating for Christmas!  Truth be told, if I wasn’t throwing a big 5th birthday party here next weekend, I’d probably be up to my neck in tinsel and ornaments too.  Miss L’s b-day […]


Halloween Front Stoop

I’m more into decorating for Halloween this year than I have been in years past.  Maybe it’s having a four year old, but it’s fun to “spookify” our house for the season! I woke up early so that I could photograph the front porch all lit up.  The first time I went out it was […]


Halloween Tree

I don’t think I’ve ever loved Halloween decor more than I have this year! This Halloween tree makes me smile to myself every time I see it all lit up in Miss L’s room.  And the best part?  We recycled old Halloween craft projects to create this cute, sparkly, spooky delight. I should rewind a […]

Halloween Mantel 2016

My four year old is driving me nuts.  We went shopping for Halloween costumes a few weeks ago, and I came up with several strong options.  Maybe too many, as it turns out. She was allll gung-ho about being a princess, which would be the same thing she was last year (different costume), but there […]


Halloween Dining Room

It’s officially October, and to me that means we can officially decorate for Halloween, right?!  I’m excited to be participating in the 2016 Halloween Home Tour with some fun blogging friends!  If you’re stopping by from Pink Peppermint Design, welcome! I don’t have my whole home decorated for Halloween yet, so today I’m just showing […]
