Mix and Match Fall Wreaths + Doormats

September 21, 2021


(Similar wreath (sold out already!), doormat, rug, lanterns)

I was stubbornly resisting fall (only because I dread winter), but as soon as the cool mornings came through I was sheepishly strolling through the autumn decor. I found a few really good wreath and doormat options to mix and match to dress your door this season!


Back to School Favorites We Use and Love

September 9, 2021

back to school guide - lunch boxes

Meant to share these back to school favorites sooner, but well….newborn life. These are some things that we use and love during the school year. This summer was a blur, and it’s hard for me to even wrap my mind around the fact that my kids are another grade older already. Maybe this year won’t be as much of a whirlwind as the last two? Crossing my fingers.

Room Giveaway Bedroom Makeover Reveal

September 1, 2021

bedroom decor - king size bed

Part 1 of this post, and Maria’s family story here.

Earlier this summer, we spent a few days at the home of our room giveaway winner painting and installing their new room. It took a lot of prep ahead of time to fit everything in, and we definitely ran into some hiccups. Despite the tight timeline, we were grateful for the opportunity to be able to create this space for a deserving family. Today we are sharing the before and afters of their bedroom makeover.

One year home anniversary Q & A!

August 5, 2021

nashville home renovation

We moved into this home one year ago, and so as fast (or slow moving) this year has gone I knew I’d better write down some thoughts before I blink and it’s summer 2022! We definitely are not where we expected to be with the renovation, but exactly where we need to be with our family. That ends up being the type of realization that keeps teaching us through every annoying hurdle or happy hill we climb. Eyes on the priorities, and the rest can unfold as it may.

We want to answer some of the frequent questions we receive as well as give an overview of what is to come this year. We always hope sharing our process and progress no matter how big or small will serve as a helpful resource to any of you working on making your spaces feel more like home. Gabe and I are both educators at heart so we love being able to share what we can.


Newborn baby favorites.

July 29, 2021

One // Two // Three // Four // Five // Six // Seven // Eight
Nine // Ten // Eleven // Twelve // Thirteen // Fourteen // Fifteen // Sixteen

It definitely took some years into motherhood to realize I didn’t need a ton of gear. I didn’t use half of the items we had for our first baby. This is a round up of some very favorite items I use for newborns and the first few months for my babies. I didn’t include baby swings and such since so many of the designs change frequently.
