Oh my goodness, has this been the most fun room to decorate! Styling a room for littles is unlike anything else. The world of inspiration is endless, on top of that, my heart gets to lead the way. Greg and I are just a few weeks away from meeting our first child. I can hardly believe I’m writing those words. This pregnancy has flown by, just as everyone said it would and now we’re anticipating the arrival of our most precious gift. We’re about to be a family of three! Let’s jump into the nursery design, shall we? Continue reading

I’d like to go ahead and preface this post with the fact that I have absolutely no idea what to expect and I could be completely over/under packed here! Between bloggers, YouTubers and people you know who have children, there are so many differing opinions about what you actually need to bring with you to the hospital. I’m very aware of the difference between “needs” and “wants” but I also have no idea if I’ll be in and out quickly or if I’ll labor for a long time. So, I’m going with my gut and bringing what I think feels right for us! Continue reading

The importance of home

Home decor may seem frivolous to some, but I see it as a vital piece to my happiness and well being and here’s why. Your home should be a place that you’re drawn to, a place that feels like a vacation from the world in a way. It should be a place you want to escape to, not escape from. Yes, much of that has to do with what you do there and who you share it with, but don’t discount the effect of the actual space itself. If you wake up each day and your first site is a soft, clean, airy space, your mind has one less subject to clutter it. I believe we should create our homes to not only reflect our personal styles and tell our stories, but also to help us relax and unwind. Telling your story doesn’t mean leaving reminding yourself what you wore to work this week because of the piles of laundry covering the floor, or the story of the hobby you gave up a year ago. It should only reflect the pieces of you that bring joy and good feelings. I want to live in a space that GIVES me enough space to be myself.

Why I'm happier with less stuff

If you look around your home and feel overwhelmed by the clutter, this post is for you. We live in a world of consumerism, where shopping is a common pastime, which means we’re consistently adding things on top of things to our homes. We follow trends and the ever-changing likes and dislikes of our culture. We fall into place, yet we keep the old things that are now forgotten or seen as unattractive. That leads to a cluttered mess of things at home.

Simple Pleasures for the Holidays

Ahh, the holidays… nothing brings out the homebody in me more…

She said with a huge smile. I’m so blessed to have a place to retreat to each day that brings me comfort and peace. I truly enjoy spending time at home. I’ve been this way for so long, I can’t remember when it started. I’ve always said “twenty-something on the outside—eighty-five on the inside”. Anyway, when it gets so bitter cold outside, we all spend more time indoors. This year, I was excited as ever to decorate for Christmas, but put out much less than usual. If you’re a regular reader, I’ll sound like a broken record, but… I wanted to keep the noise down. Keep the clutter to a minimum. I put out just things that spark joy! The pretty paperwhites, and twinkly lights do the trick! Continue reading
