gold leaf frame deal

I always love art in gold leaf frames, but it is hard to find a pretty one without going the custom route which typically comes with a higher price tag. I found this gold leaf frame from Utrecht. The frame is still on sale. I bought the 11X14 for my Emily Jeffords print. It literally is just the frame. I paid $17.99 for mine. I took it to Hobby Lobby and they added glass, matting ($2.99 pre-cut, not custom), backing and hardware for $26. They did it right on the spot too which was a plus! I was really pleased with the price and how it turned out. 

I am slowly getting around to updating our master bedroom. I need more serenity in my life :) so I am going with a more serene feel in our room this time around. I still have lots to add to our room, but I am taking my time.

perfectly pink

Since we moved several months ago, Georgia has been requesting that her room be pink. I have never been a huge fan of pink rooms and honestly I thought with her pink bedding it might be too much pink, but how many times in your life can you have a pink room? So we obliged and I found a beautiful shade of pink that I think works well. We used 75% Benjamin Moore's Love and Happiness. It is a nice, warm dusting of pink. Eventually we may change up her bedding, but for now Georgia's room is feeling perfectly pink!

Graham Central Station

We celebrated Graham's second birthday over the weekend. It was a wonderful cookout with cousins  in the backyard kind of party complete with some trains! Graham loves anything on wheels, especially trains, so it was Graham Central Station over at our house. 

He is such a sweet and loving little boy. We love you Graham Carter!

strawberry fields

We had a fun little family afternoon of strawberry picking this week.  I even had my real camera and took some pictures. This was our second time going to pick strawberries and we had such a good time. If you are local, Hall Family Farm is a great place to visit!

desk nightstand

We are in the process of finally updating our master bedroom. I don't know why we always leave this room last on the list to update. In celebration of our 8 year wedding anniversary though, the process of switching things up has started. Our home does not have a separate office space and currently I do not want to set one up in the playroom so we are creating a little workspace in our room. Honestly, with technology these days, you can really set up shop anywhere,  but we both wanted a space where we could go and shut the door if we needed to work from home while the kids are there too. I have always really liked the idea of a writing/reading space in the bedroom so my new nightstand is now a desk. The photos below are my inspiration for this little corner.

3 things I may be living in this spring

I have always been a fan of spring and the newness it brings. I especially like bringing out those spring clothes or adding a few new items to my wardrobe! Recently I picked up the three items below and I can definitely see myself living in these this spring. 




I bought a short sleeve cotton maxi dress at TJ Maxx that looks very similar to this dress at a fraction of the cost. 


This skirt is adorable on. I just love it!


These will be on constant repeat for me.  Paul calls them my Jesus sandals. They are super cute. 


Happy almost Weekend!
