The last step in our journey to finishing the major upgrades in our hall bathroom was flooring. Flooring that I’d had for, oh, a month at least but hadn’t found the time to put down. We were seriously living with the subfloor exposed for all of that time, just covering it with bath mats when […]

May 8, 2017 | No Comments

My last couple of days – make that weeks – ok possibly YEARS, have been a little bit frustrating. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some amazing days, weeks, etc. but the frustration has been tough to tackle. Why am I not closer to where I want to be in life? Why do I disappoint […]

Have Faith

May 5, 2017 | 2 Comments

Have you ever had moments where you’re not sure if it’s the Lord’s voice or your own internal monologue that you’re listening to? This was my struggle — not hearing him in the big things, but hearing him in the stillness. I left work on a Thursday just like any other day… Except instead of going […]

DIY $15 Milk Stool

May 1, 2017 | 3 Comments

It’s no secret that I love vintage and thrift store shopping. One of my favorite things to do is repurpose items that were used years and years ago. They possess charm and character that you simply can’t buy new. A few months ago, I was with my aunt shopping at Coach Light Antiques and a […]

Spring is evident everywhere, in new blooms, in beautiful colors, a perfect picture of redemption. The Easter story is powerful, and we’ve been seeing […]

How to Frame a Bathroom Mirror

April 12, 2017 | No Comments

I’ve been such a blog slacker, friends! My hiatus wasn’t planned, but sometimes that’s just how life goes. Y’all know what I mean. At any rate, I have made some great strides on the hall bathroom in our house that I’m so excited to share and, in fact, only have the flooring and shelves left […]

Dollhouse Table Redo

April 3, 2017 | No Comments

I have always loved dollhouses and miniatures. I was so excited to give my daughter this Imaginarium dollhouse this past Christmas. I searched high and low for the perfect one. I may like to do the whole DIY thing, but I was not about building one of those hobby dollhouses…not to mention paying to do […]

Our bathroom renovation project is coming along pretty well! It’s always a longer process when you DIY, especially with kids, because those hours are hard to pull together consistently.

The first time I saw the Trolls movie with my 3 year old daughter, I was just as captivated as she was! It’s an adorable movie with upbeat music and positive messages: being happy is always within your own control, be positive, show love to others. Not only that but the characters are so cute! […]

Our bathroom has been long overdue for a makeover. We’ve lived in our house for twelve years, y’all, and while we got rid of the ugly wallpaper and carpet in our hall bathroom, it still had yellowing porcelain tile and an outdated vanity. In the interest of full disclosure, that bathroom has been a “designers […]

Hi, friends! We are pretty much in love with hand lettering. Aren’t you? Gorgeous hand lettered signs are flooding our Instagram feed, and we’ve even tried our hand at it a few times.
