• Week Eleven Corona Virus Hiatus: Entertaining Outside

    Week ELEVEN. So things are shifting a lot. States are opening up, social distancing still stands and masks are encouraged if not mandatory; but stay at home orders are lifting. Perhaps there is a little light at the end of the tunnel. I still can not quite picture what the Summer will look like, but I imagine we will get into a groove and hopefully be able to socialize with a few families. I read this NPR article on how to assess risk this Summer and found it to be helpful, good common sense. So… it looks like when (if) we will be entertaining, it will be outside. I rounded…

  • Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2020

  • Week Seven Coronavirus Hiatus: Small Interior Updates

    Let’s keep this week light. Last week was long and heavy, at least it felt that way in this house. Here are a few things to perhaps brighten your home a bit as we head into Week Seven.  Last week we focused on the outside. I am SO grateful for the sunny day yesterday; we were outside in our “new room” all day. So let’s focus on the inside. Nothing major, although I’ve been meaning to finish a “Indoor Refresh” post since the start of this… maybe I will save that for the two month mark. When you spend so much time in your house you see things that perhaps…

  • Week Six Coronavirus Hiatus: Let’s Build Another Room

    We live in a sweet house. We’ve been here for 12 years and always planned on moving to a slightly bigger property at some point… especially as the kids grow. Man, do we need to do that. The comfort of a house changes dramatically when the entire household is home… 24/7. With that in mind we decided it was time to amp up our patio space so we could have “another room.” We had been holding off on purchasing anything with the plan of moving on the horizon… but when we uncovered our wooden outdoor dining table and found it was rotting… we knew it was time. I did a…

  • January Favorites
