Appreciating the Home You Have + Kitchen Plans

Hey there friends! I thought I would pop in and share some thoughts on appreciating the home you have. I think it is so easy to get discouraged by the beautiful & perfect images we see online, many times it leaves us with the idea that what we have isn’t enough. I think deep down we know it is enough but we get sucked in and play the comparison game. And we all know that comparison is the thief of joy.

Taking My Own Advice, Childhood Summers + What My Rugs Would Look Like

Hi there friends! As some of you may know I have been participating in a rug challenge over on Annie Selke’s Instagram feed (aka Dash & Albert).  They are taking the top 10 and producing them under a “Blogger Collection.” I would love this opportunity more than you know, it would be a dream come true to say the least. This rug challenge has really got me thinking about desire, dreams, humility, gratitude & grace and taking my own advice.

Travel Diary: New England’s Beautiful Newport, RI

Hi there friends! Last week was our mid-winter break and we headed up to Newport, RI for a little R & R. The weather was amazing, it felt like Spring was right around the corner.

Haven, Blogging Perspective + 6 Simple Boho Picnic Ideas

I am off to Haven tomorrow so I thought I would pop in before I left. This is my 2nd year going and I am super excited. For anyone who isn’t familiar with this blogging conference, its focus is DIY and decorating & let me just say this is such an amazing experience if you are a blogger whose focus is that.
