Weekender: Instagram vs. Blogging?

March 22, 2019

It seems we are always adjusting sails around here. I have blogged pretty diligently for so many years but this past year for the first time I had to slow way down with the amount of blog posts I could put up. There has been such a big crowd shift to social media platforms, and I see how a good portion of our readers are just consuming our content on instagram. It requires us to treat both spaces differently, and creating content for both spaces can be very time consuming. While we still have plenty of you visiting this space frequently, it is constantly leaving us torn as to where to pour our time.


Family Travel: Disney World in a Day!

March 19, 2019

So glad we captured their reaction to the surprise on film.

Gabe and I have been wanting to take our kids to Disney World for so long, but there hasn’t ever been the right time. I would say this spontaneous decision could have gone either way, but this time it turned out in our favor. Phew! My nausea and fatigue from first trimester pregnancy had just came to a halt, and with the new burst of energy I felt like it just might be the right time to conquer the world! …..well Disney World at least. In today’s post we wanted to share this video of surprising the kids and a few highlights from the day, as well as a re-cap of making the most of one day in Magic Kingdom with varying ages!


Happy Weekend: First Trimester Favorites

March 8, 2019

(Rocco and Azelie ask me frequently if they also have babies in their bellies.)

As the first trees start to bloom here in Atlanta to give us all hope that the end of a long gloomy season is almost here, it also parallels with the end of my first trimester! Three months in which I truly hibernated with dedication. I have nothing but gratitude for this little one, although I admit I am relieved to say goodbye to the nausea that came dutifully from 5-8pm every evening.


Studio Room Storage: IKEA Brimnes Cabinets

March 6, 2019

My very favorite design hack is finding cabinets and drawers with visual appeal to hide all of the wonderful clutter in your life. We finished the daylight basement with the intention of having a multi-purpose room to use as a play area, workspace, and makeshift guest bedroom. Today I am sharing the storage units we found online at IKEA that are the perfect units for small to large spaces!

A $30 Room Upgrade!

March 4, 2019

We often associate home design projects with a hundred dollar price tag, which may sometimes be the case but doesn’t always have to be! For instance….curtain holdbacks! A low cost simple detail that can really elevate a room visually and bring in more natural light at a low cost. Read on for a few examples!

Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

February 17, 2019

This big crowd recipe has been in my family for a while now, and I have tweaked it over the years to get it to the point where it wins over just about all ages despite the vegetables involved! I hope you enjoy, and please let me know if you make it! I would love to hear how it turns out for you.
