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:)

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!

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)

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.
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!

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!
