A Cozy Corner in the Basement

OMG. OMG. OMG. You guys, I leave for the Silobration in Waco in FIVE DAYS. Well actually, it’s only four days if you don’t count today, but holy cow it’s getting so close. I’m a big ol’ ball of nerves and excitement at this point and I even had a dream about the trip a…

Our Tiny Mudroom

I’m going to be really honest with you guys right now–I really, really, really dislike photographing our mudroom. It’s seriously the most annoying thing ever because our mudroom is teeny TINY. Really, there just isn’t enough room for me, the camera and my tripod. Plus our mudroom doesn’t get a ton of natural light, which…

New Farmhouse Cabinet in the Entryway

OK, first off–it feels like forrrrrrrever since I blogged about our entryway. Seriously, I can’t even remember the last time I shared this space. Maybe Christmas? Last fall? I have no idea. I could look it up to know for sure, but I honestly don’t feel like doing that right now so we’re just going…

Farmhouse Style Home Office Reveal!

OMGGGGGGGGG. I know I say this a lot, and you’re probably annoyed at this point, but I am SO excited for today’s post. Seriously, I kind of feel like a kid on Christmas because I finally, finally have my very own home office and today I get to share it with you guys! If you’ve…

Styling the Smallest Shelf Ever

So a few weeks ago I was visiting a cute little shop that I love to stop by every now and then. It’s the kind of place that serves free snacks AND has lots of awesome vintage goodies to browse through. I mean, what could be better?! I love it there. Anyway, as I was…

  • I can’t believe it’s already been three weeks since our trip to the Silobration. 😍😍 I was so glad my husband could go along with me & I love this shot of us—standing in muddy puddles & soaking wet, but happy as can be. I am so blessed to do life with this guy by my side for over 16 years now. 🙏❤️
  • Rise & shine, it’s coffeeeeeee time! ☕️☕️Can you believe Thanksgiving is only two weeks from today? TWO WEEKS. Time to get yo stretchy pants ready!! 🙌🏻 I’d love to know what Thanksgiving traditions you have in your family. I’m looking for new things to do with the kids & I’m curious if you do anything special or unique to celebrate the day?! 🦃
  • You guys told me you love before & after shots, so here’s another one for you. Swipe right to see how I styled our breakfast nook when we first moved in three years ago. This was actually after I painted the walls, they were dark brown before, and I was pretty happy with how it looked. 😬Obviously we have since updated a few things in this space—I added faux shiplap (it was my first big project & I was so proud I did it all by myself!) and then I added a new light fixture, a different table, shelves, etc. .

The thing that strikes me the most with these two photos is the difference in my style. At the time I was struggling to figure out what I liked & how I could make that work with a tight budget. It didn’t happen over night, but slowly things have evolved in this space & it looks totally different today. And if you think about it, that’s kind of the cool thing about life. Nothing we do is ever perfect when we just start out. There are bumps in the road, struggles, growing pains, etc. But as time goes on we (hopefully) evolve to be better than when we began. And even though it’s nice to get to the pretty after photo, especially if you’re impatient like me, it’s also kind of nice to appreciate the journey. Yes, that’s cheesy as heck. But it’s TRUE. I love looking back at these photos of when we first started out because it reminds me of the journey & how hard we’ve worked on our home. It’s still a work in progress,  but I’m grateful for it all!
  • Today was crazy/surreal/awesome all at the same time. I spent the day working on a project that totally took me out of my comfort zone, but it went so well & I’m happy I decided to push myself & do it. (Watch my stories to see what I’ve been up to!) Then when I got home I had this smiling baby waiting for me at the front door. My husband snapped this picture of us & I just love the look on her little face. This girl is attached to my hip all day every day, so she was very happy to be back with mama. 😍😍 Now it’s time for pizza & cozy clothes!! 🙌🏻🙏
  • I’m still a little ways off from jumping into Christmas decor, but I did pick up a pair of these eucalyptus & pinecone wreaths from Target yesterday. I loooooooove them & now I’m getting a teeny tiny itch to add a few more pops of Christmas into this room. BUT I’m going to hold out a little longer. Anyone else still holding onto pumpkins or have you started to deck the halls?!
  • #flashbackfriday to one of my favorite snapshots with my girl. I can’t believe this was almost a year ago 😭😭 This sweet pea is my little BFF & I shared in stories today about how she teaches me to be brave. I hope you watch it if you’re facing something big in your life right now. It’s a simple, yet powerful reminder that fear is choice & you can face anything in life if you simply make the decision to be brave. #goforit #getthatcandygirl
