Laundry Room Refresh: the Reveal

Hump Daaa--ayy!  Hope your week has been going well, friends!  I'm working my little tail off getting ready for our Legacy Benefit Dinner on Friday, but I couldn't wait any longer to share my newly refreshed laundry room.  It's truly amazing how simple changes can make a big difference! Confession:  this project took longer than we thought it would.  My house is 30+ years old and so lots of little things revealed themselves when we dug into … [Read more...]

Project Sneak Peek: Laundry Room Refresh

Hi there!  I hope you're enjoying your week so far.  It's been nice to be out of school so I can tackle some of these refresh projects we need to do to get the house ready to sell.  Ever wonder why we wait until we're ready to sell to get these things done??? Yesterday I jump-started the laundry room refresh that has been loooonnnnggg overdue.  If you follow me on Instagram you know I purged the cabinets and cleaned it up a couple of weekends … [Read more...]

The Front Porch Plan

This has been a busy week and I want to thank you all for your prayers... I have surely felt God's presence and His grace as I've moved through a few situations! I'm so thankful I serve a big God who walks with me, guides me, and shows His grace every day. Today I want to share my plan for the front porch... it's been QUITE a while since there's been a major overhaul (normally it's just fresh plants/pillows) and I'm itching to do that this … [Read more...]

Home Goals 2016

Better late than never, y'all!  I've been working on these gradually over the last several weeks and it's finally time to share.   I call them my "goals" because inevitably something more urgent will pop up and consume time and resources to addresses. Last year the majority of my home goals went untouched due to Legacy, so some of these will ring a bell.  But I do think it's worth it to think through what I'd like to update and accomplish … [Read more...]

What I’m Reading, Loving, and Working On

Friday and I've got a new project alert for you!  But first, if I could selfishly request your prayers today?  The drunk driver that killed our Kaely is to be sentenced this morning and several family members will be speaking in court.  Such a difficult day, but one that has been long awaited -- please join us in praying that not only will he be handed the maximum sentence, but that he also would feel and show some iota of remorse for his … [Read more...]

Gettin’ Personal: My Goals for 2014

A few years ago I gave up making New Year's resolutions.   I usually struggled to come up with that one thing on which to focus my efforts, and though I'd start off strong (and resolute!), by February it had usually fallen by the wayside.  Then I was left with that sense of failure and that well, why bother now? mindset that gets you nowhere. So one January when I was laid up with the flu, in the midst of an ice/snow storm that provided an … [Read more...]

Home Goals 2014

Happy Monday, y'all!  We're supposed to be back at work today, but the frigid temps and flurries prompted an optional work day... woo hoo!  Maybe I'll actually get my Christmas decor put away today. Anyhoo, I made the mistake of pulling up my Home Goals 2013 post yesterday and actually laughed out loud!  Clearly, I need to revisit the goals list throughout the year so I don't fall prey to Home Projects ADD and flit from one thing to another … [Read more...]

A Look Back at 2013

Now that my chicks are back in the nest and we've had our little Christmas together, I can hardly believe 2013 is on its way out the door. It's been a year of highs and lows for my family, but God has been faithful and has grown all of us in unimaginable ways.  We're all looking forward to 2014 and I've been pondering that over the last week or so.    My home and personal goals are slowly crystalizing and I'll be sharing those here soon, along … [Read more...]

House Tour: My Foyer (for now!)

Earlier in the summer when I photographed my family room for my Home Tour, I snapped a few pics of my foyer at the same time.  With so many gloomy rainy days, it was a challenge to get a day of decent lighting, so I seized my moment!   I'm sharing them today, even though they're not the best quality.  Think it's time for a better camera and maybe a photography lesson or two? :)  I'll be adding to these as lighting and photography savvy … [Read more...]

Family Room Tour and To-Do List

Happy Friday, everyone!  I can't believe we're already wrapping up June... *sigh*... why do the summer weeks seem to fly by the fastest?  I'm looking forward to fun weekend IN TOWN, if you can believe it!   My "baby" boy leaves for Spain and Portugal with his church youth group in less than two weeks, so I'll be working on getting him ready to go, hopefully finishing up a booth project or two, and relaxing with some special girl friends (I'll … [Read more...]
