Five on Friday: Valentine’s Day Edition

Whew, TGIF!  With Valentine's Day right around the corner, it seemed only fitting to have today's Five on Friday be all about the Valentine, right?  I'm not one for decorating for this day, but I have a few fun things to share that should make your day extra special! 1.  This playing card wreath... I love this idea!!  And just think, it's the perfect project if you have a deck that's missing a few cards. :) Refresh Living 2.  This sweet love … [Read more...]

What’s In for 2017: Acrylic Furniture

Hey there!  My heat has been restored and of course it's been 70 degrees the last couple of days... but we're due for another cold blast, so at least I'll be in comfort this time around. :)  I thought it would be fun over the next few weeks to share some of the trends in decor I'm seeing online and in print... some of these might be holdovers from 2016, but they're still going strong in interiors, so it's not too late to jump on the … [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...]

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...]

Christmas Inspiration

Howdy!  We're in the midst of my favorite time of year -- all Christmas preparations.  Am I nuts??  Maybe... but I love the process of decorating, finishing up shopping, addressing cards, wrapping gifts, making treats to share.  I spent the weekend cleaning, organizing, and decorating, so I'm close to sharing some of my holiday decor with you. :)  But I've also been BLOWN AWAY by some of the most gorgeous inspiration I've found online this year … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Holiday Monday

Happy Monday and Happy Thanksgiving week!  I'm immersed in Legacy to-dos today and a bit of food prep, but over the weekend, I had so many random holiday ideas and thoughts in my mind, I thought I'd share some with you today.  Maybe something will strike a chord with you?? I always forget that H&M has home decor items, but this inexpensive ($5.99!!) Christmas pillow cover totally caught my eye... Merry and Bright pillow cover  There's … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It (September & October)

I cannot believe it's already November!  It seems like time just speeds up from year to year, doesn't it?  Well, at least I got back on a semi-regular posting schedule. :)  So just in case you've missed something from the last couple of months... I caught you up on my life lately back in September -- which was a whole lotta Legacy and getting my kiddos off and running on new adventures. You wouldn't believe how much those sweet peas in … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Fall Fashion Edition

TGIF!  Whew, another week down and it was a good one.  Earlier this week I was seriously under the weather and to pass the time I prowled around on Pinterest for some fun fall outfits.  It's been so warm here I have yet to wear a sweater or boots!  But I found some fun outfits I would totally wear and thought I'd share them with you for today's Five on Friday ... just in case you need a little inspiration for your own wardrobe! 1.  Chambray, … [Read more...]

A Front Porch Peek!

Hi friends...  I've been under the weather this week (ugh -- who has time for that??) so I'm behind on my front porch progress, of course.  But I've done enough that I thought I'd share a peek at it today after all. We've had sunny warm weather so at least it's been pleasant while I'm out there, even if it doesn't feel particularly fall-like.  I think the kiddos will be trick or treating in shorts this weekend! Remember that I spray … [Read more...]
