These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

Hello, friends, and Happy Thanksgiving week!  I hope you're joyfully prepping for feasting and enjoying family time this week.   School is closed this week and my youngest is home from college, so we're enjoying a slightly slower pace AND some cold weather to get in the holiday spirit.  I may already be enjoying my Christmas Pandora stations -- I do love me some Christmas music and it always gets me in the mood to cook, decorate, and shop for … [Read more...]

Decor Trends 2017: Navy

TGIF, friends!  This week has kicked my hiney, with the time change and my work load!  I'm ready to SLEEP IN a bit this weekend if I can.  We're trekking through the repainting process of my home and still looking at some exterior refreshes, but we're slowly making progress.  #goals Today I wanted to share another decor trend in 2017 and this one is a favorite.  Yes, it's also a holdover from 2016, but I think it will continue to have legs for … [Read more...]

I Can’t Resist: Fine Art by Deann

Good Monday to you, friends!  Can you believe February is winding down so quickly??  I spent the weekend putting my laundry room back together (reveal coming SOON!) and moving on into our powder room that was about ten years overdue for an update.  Oh and I also worked all day Friday and again on Sunday at my new part-time job -- #whew.  I'll share more about that soon, too. Anyhow, I thought we'd kick off the week with an I Can't Resist that … [Read more...]

What’s Saving My Life Right Now…

Ah, Monday, Monday, y'all.  Are you feeling the post-Super Bowl blues today?  I've always wished they would start the game at 3pm instead 6-something... after all, Sunday is a school night!  Anyhoo, we had a super busy and kind of "off" weekend.  And as I was catching up on some blog reading yesterday afternoon I was seeing several "What's Saving My Life Right Now" posts.  Anne Bogel of Modern Mrs. Darcy blog started doing this and now has a … [Read more...]

HGTV Dream Home 2017 {Eye Candy}

Happy Monday, friends!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I had a pretty low-key one just taking care of Legacy loose ends and plodding through my purging.  I was battling a low blood pressure so I didn't get TONS done, but progress is progress, right? Today I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite elements from this year's HGTV Dream Home.  This year they brought Brian Patrick Flynn on board and the design felt very different … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: 2016 Favorites Edition

TGIF, friends!  It's been a challenge getting back into the swing this week and now SNOW is on the way!  Of course, here in ATL, it could end up being nothing, but I hit the grocery store yesterday afternoon for a few staples (and extras!) yesterday, just in case.  Anyhoo, I know we're six days into 2017 now, but I thought for our first Five on Friday for the year it would be fun to share my favorites from 2016... 1.  Favorite project. 2016 … [Read more...]

Nordstrom Home Sale Picks (Under $50)

Happy New Year and Happy Monday, friends!  I hope you had a festive and fun New Years, even if it involved yoga pants and cups of tea.  I managed to make it til midnight and then spent all day on the couch yesterday.  It was a cold and rainy day, perfect for enjoying the fire in comfort. :) Today is the last day of the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale, and so I felt I'd be remiss if I didn't share some of the great deals they've got for the … [Read more...]

2016: Highlights and Lowlights

Where to begin?  Now that I'm finally catching my breath a bit, it seemed like a good time to reflect on 2016 before turning the page to the new year... and I'm READY to turn the page! 2016 was the year of change around here... One of the biggest was opening our preschool after quite the journey.  This time last year I was in the midst of sharing our Legacy Story here on the blog.  But within a month or so, when Legacy was registering … [Read more...]
