The LVN Reader Survey–I Need Your Input!

Farmhouse Flatlay

May is kind of a special around here because it marks one year and six months since I started my blog. It was November 2015 when I officially took the leap into the unknown world of blogging and purchased the tools I needed to get started. I published my first post in December 2015 and the rest is history. It’s kind of crazy to think how much has happened in my life since that point and I never would have imagined that I’d be able to leave my job to blog full-time and be home with my kiddos. It’s really been a dream come true. But I’m still incredibly new at this blogging thin and I still have soooooo much to learn.

As I’ve been thinking about this little milestone I thought it would be a good opportunity to do my first ever reader survey to just check in with you guys, see what you’re enjoying here on the blog and what you’d like to see more of in the future. Above all, I want this to be a place that you enjoy and come to for helpful tips, advice, and entertainment. Without all you lovely people that drop in every day, leave comments, pin images to Pinterest, and follow me on social media this blog wouldn’t be possible. And as my blog continues to evolve, I’m always looking for ways to expand my content to include new things you all might enjoy. And of course focus more on the content you love the most.

Here’s where you come in! I’ve created a super simple, 10 question survey that I’d love you to take part in. It won’t take more than 5 minutes of your time, but your input and feedback would be greatly appreciated! Also feel free to leave any feedback in the comments below–you know I love chatting there too.

Thank you so much. You all rock!

    Hello & Good Morning Sarah! Within the last year, my husband and I were able to purchase our fixer upper. Being our first home, it has brought so much joy and tears. It’s an amazing experience to watch a house transform into a home. I am new to the blog world and over the last few months, I have really enjoyed following your journey sharing your life, DIY projects & beautiful home decor tips. With that being said I too have decided to take the plunge. It is inspiring to see such support from one another. So again, thank you! I have a lot of work ahead to get it up and running but trust that it will be a beautiful experience. Cheers!

  2. Took the survey but wanted to tell you how much I love your blog. Each day when I see “Rise and shine my friend!” it makes me smile because I know something beautiful and inspiring is about to come across my laptop. You are an encouragement to me. Especially since I’m a VERY new blogger. I love your story. Hope you have a wonderful day… and are able to take a nap! 😉

    Hi Sarah! I took your survey but I wanted to let you know what an inspiration you’ve been to me. You’ve encouraged me to pursue my dreams and channel my crafty side in home decor and DIY. Your story on how you started your blog was the thing that finally got me to make the same leap of faith! I’m only two blog posts in and my site is nowhere near finished, but I’m excited about it and can’t wait to see what it’ll bring!

    Thank you so much for sharing your life and style with us. Your home is gorgeous!

    Hi Sarah , I took the survey , it was a pleasure to help you out.
    You are truly an inspiration to us with all your wonderful posts the least I could do is take the survey..
    I just want to say that I think I stumbled across you from a pinterest post , boy I am a true pinterest gal , love it so much.
    I wasn’t really into the full farmhouse look , I just liked certain items here and there around the home but then I stumbled here and because of your beautiful home and how you accessorise, just has me hooked on doing my home full on ..
    Right now we are in a rented home but slowly i’m building up items for my new vision for our new home.
    We are looking for a fixer upper but since I’m transitioning into a more farmhouse/vintage style I’m finding it so so hard to find a home with the character I wont , Oh man I never realised just how stressful it is, I’m driving my hubby crazy.
    God is good and His eye is on that perfect house for me , I just need patience lol!!!
    have a blessed day

    Hi Sarah: Took your survey. You are one of my favorite bloggers. I am in my 50’s and have never considered myself very crafty or creative. I have learned a lot from you. My husband and I have done a lot of upgrading on our 60’s house and have transformed it into something we never thought possible. We now have a cozy farmhouse style home filled with items we have collected from thrift shops and garage sales and then refurbished. I get a lot of great ideas from you. Thank you – Dawn

  • We’re on day 3 of the kitchen tile reno, so this little space in the basement is literally the only clean area in our whole house right now 🥴😆 But they’re making progress in the kitchen + I know it will all be worth it soon. Plus there are some major perks that come with having your refrigerator in the living room. That sandwich I made from the recliner last night was delicious 🤣😉 PS: those black sticking stripe pillows on the sofa are from one of my favorite small shops ever @withlavenderandgrace.
