2020 Spring Home Tour

Who else has been so excited, and ever so patiently waiting, for Spring to arrive? Maybe it’s because I spent so much of the winter months sick and isolated to the couch, but I’ve been so ready for the warmer weather, the green grass, birds chirping and the coming days of planting flowers! I also […]

Spring Home Tour : Part Two

I’ve been so excited for Spring this year. Yesterday, my mom and I visited our local nursery and I bought bunches of new perennials, strawberry plants and a couple of trees. One thing about building a new home is, the landscaping takes years to build up. Literally. This year will be our fourth summer in […]

Spring Mantel Decorating

Spring is definitely in the air and things are in full bloom around here! My tulips have popped up, and the daffodils are bursting with color! And the birds, let’s not forget their cheerful chirping. I’ve really missed them! Since things are really feeling like Spring outside, I thought the inside should too. And there’s […]

Spring Decorating

It’s certainly felt like spring here. Tractor work is in full swing and the farm ground is dramatically changing all around us. It’s such a refreshing site. To make the inside of our home feel as fresh and spring-y as the outside, I decided to do a bit of spring decorating. If you’ve been following […]

Living Room Reading Corner

I’ve always wanted a cozy spot to read. To me, that could be one of the simplest things in life. But also one of the best. I love to escape in a good book, and sometimes that’s the only way I can rejuvenate myself after a long day or week. That’s why I’m so excited […]
