Outdoor String Lights

Outdoor String Lights

If you are considering adding ambiance lighting to your outdoor space, do it! Lighting can evoke a variety of feelings, usually consisting of warm and fuzzies. I have always had a sense of calm and tranquility from glowing lights at night. While the ones we chose are bigger than a firefly, they remind me of [...]

Girly Pink Bathroom

Girly Pink Bathroom

This project taught me a few things about myself, I am bad at underestimating time, and I have a tendencies to do the "if you give a mouse a cookie ...." spiral on most things. Below is how this space started! Presley's room was not the right color, so I changed that last fall by [...]

Guest Room Reveal

Guest Room Reveal

I am so excited to reveal our guest room! It's a very cozy space in the basement. It doesn't have any windows so it's kinda like a little guest cave. Definitely could get some good, dark shut eye in there! This post may contain affiliate links and is sponsored by JCPenney. Thank you to the [...]

Should you Build or Buy?

Should you Build or Buy?

My first home was lovely. It was charming, quaint, spacious. It had all the things and more I could ever ask for in a home. Our family was started there, and there too, our family grew. To the point we outgrew the house. Considerations taken when buying a home pre-family, vs. post family, are drastically [...]

Holiday Mood Boards

Yesterday was such a fun day! I intended to go shopping with my kids and then everything went wrong and it was nap time so I ditched them at home and ventured out alone. It was awesome to spend some getting inspo for the season, rather than just yelling at my kids to stop touching [...]

Fall Entryway

Fall Entryway

Fall is a season of family and gathering. As the summer warmth fades to cooler days (still waiting here in Atlanta...), the final burst of colors and vibrancy for the year disappears with the leaves. Their final display of color and beauty is always one of my favorite sights. Reds, oranges, and yellows mesh into [...]

Sweet Potato Black Bean Enchiladas

This is one of my go to healthy meals for my family. You could add rotisserie chicken if the vegetarian version isn't your style. Add spinach at same time as other veggies. Below are the raw and unedited photos documenting our dinner tonight. 😋It was so yummy!!

Microblading- The Full Story

Microblading- The Full Story

At a tender 12 years old, I butchered my eyebrows. For some reason, I thought ONE line of hair was an appropriate width for an eyebrow. By high school they were thicker than one hair, but not by much. This photo was from my junior year I think. I lived in a time before selfies, [...]
