mesh cabinets

I love the idea of breaking up the heaviness of cabinets with open shelves or glass doors, but I really like the look of these mesh cabinets.  For me, I feel like it provides a lighter and more airy feel while still being modern. This is definitely a design idea that I plan to file away and possibly incorporate in my own kitchen one day.

On a completely different note, I am certainly keeping all of those affected by Hurricane Harvey and those in the path of Irma in my thoughts and prayers!

sister/brother shared bathroom

Decorating for a shared sister/brother space can be tricky. The kids share their bathroom and this bathroom serves as a guest bathroom as well. I wanted this space to be soft and not overly kid themed. The bathroom is painted balsam by Porter Paints. It is a light shade of blue/green. I found the round mirrors and the shower curtain at Marshalls. The mirrors really add a custom look to the space.  I am thankful there are two sinks too, especially if we are still in this house thru the teenage years:)

slow, summer weekends

I love a good slow, summer weekend and that is just what we are having. I came across the picture below while perusing Pinterest this morning with my coffee.  I wish I could find out who to give decor credit to. This sunroom is everything! Oh how I love those chairs. I hope you are having a relaxing summer weekend as well!

six.

Georgia turned 6 last week! We celebrated with friends and family at a local horse ranch called Bit of Hope Ranch.  What a special place it is! It was such a fun party and honestly it was one of the easiest parties I have thrown! The ranch provided most everything. The kids rode horses, painted, decorated bandanas and even had a water gun fight. What a hot, but super fun day it was to celebrate our sweet July baby.  



Georgia and I made necklaces for all of her girlfriends. A Pinterest find of course! 




Kudos to the Ranch host - Mr. Alan (aka my best friend's dad)

our garden grew

One of many fond childhood memories that I have, is of our little backyard garden. Georgia asked us several times if she could have a garden so we decided to give it a try this year. It truly has been a fun little project and both kids have looked forward to watering and checking on the garden each day. Back in April, Paul built a 2X6 raised garden bed. We planted tomatoes (beef steak and big beef), carrots, bib lettuce, rosemary and parsely. We were complete amateurs at gardening, but everything grew really well. I think our rainy June  definitely helped. We have enjoyed making salads and lettuce wraps with our lettuce, flavoring foods with our herbs and eating our tomatoes. 


Day 1


First tomato sighting





One of our summer bucket list items was a lemonade and produce stand. We have already made some sweet summer memories with our little garden that grew!

light and airy

 I love the light and airy design of this home. The beautiful entry and those buffalo check ottomans really caught my eye.  Happy Weekend!

put a flag in it

July 4th is probably my favorite holiday! I think it is one of the easiest holidays to decorate for too. It is simple really...just put a flag in it! It makes any vase or planter festive for the occasion! Enjoy your July 4th celebrations. God bless the USA!
