Family Reunion Meals, Games, and Ideas

June 11, 2023

This was the first summer in a while we haven’t had weddings or other big events in my family so we planned a big reunion on the lake! It was such a good experience thanks to a lot of teamwork in the planning! In case you are also planning a family reunion, I wanted to share some of the details, games, meals, and ideas that were a hit for us!


Every Paint Color Around Our Home

We just finished our last paint project a few weeks back. I always had a color story planned, but not necessarily every paint color picked in advance. I knew I wanted a few bold rooms so the dining room was the easiest to pick, but I took all the time in the world deciding on kitchen cabinet colors. I wanted to put together a color index of sorts so it is easy to reference if you are looking for a paint color! So here we are: all of the paint colors around our home…

I halted style posts for the past several years because I no longer had the time to shoot photos outside of the home, let alone shop for clothes! I still never want to spend time going into stores, and often find myself browsing the internet with little luck on finding items I like! I have always loved the capsule concept for ease, affordability, and overall less consumption.

We Are Moving.

nashville home renovation

We are moving this summer. A bittersweet decision we made early this spring, and have been trying to process the reality as the timeline is moving so quickly! The last three years have felt like a decade it seems. We had decided to move to Nashville prior to the onset of the pandemic, before the world shut down and the housing market soared. We thought this would be the city where we would plant roots. Even though we didn’t expect it to be our long term home, this home has been a safe haven for our family these last 3 years. Within these walls we brought home a new baby, celebrated life, grieved life, adapted, and grew. These years changed us, and altered our perspective on how we wish to shape the upcoming decade of our lives.

(Written by Gabe)

We often debate what is worth doing ourselves, and what is worth hiring out for home renovation projects. Sometimes the time involved isn’t realistic for us to tackle with a full and busy house! This was our big debate with our staircase renovation. Today we are going to share the process for how to refinish staircase railings, as well as the before and after photos of the whole staircase renovation.


Our Bedroom Renovation Reveal

bedroom makeover - primary bedroom design

We just wrapped our bedroom renovation, and it’s time for a little before and after fun. I had Augustine in our room till he was almost 8 months old so it was never a convenient time to paint and move things around. We never prioritize our bedroom since we are only in there at night, but what an incredible difference it makes to have a peaceful retreat to breathe in! After thinking through how to work with some of our old furniture pieces, I made some design plans to put in motion. Excited to share the outcome….

Breakfast Nook Views + Windsor Chair Round Up

March 17, 2023

We got these 4 dining chairs from West Elm 5 years ago. I love the the unique style, and how well they have held up through daily use. Since I get asked about them often I went ahead and did a hunt around the web for similar options and included a windsor chair round up below!
