    Orange Beach Trip

    Wow, within a week I made two trips to the beach! One trip with my family and then went back for another trip with my husband, Aaron, to celebrate his 30th birthday! I’m not one who travels often but I LOVE a good beach trip!  I’ve been going to the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area since I was a kid. I have wonderful memories of these Alabama beaches as a kid with my family and friends and I’ve made new(ish) memories as an adult with my husband.  There’s something special about the white sand along a blue gulf. We love to sit on the beach with good books and take lots…

    We Bought a Stock Tank

    That’s right! We went for it and invested in our own stock tank for a swimming pool! One day we definitely want an in-ground swimming pool, but this will do for now. We really wanted something to enjoy this summer, so we took the plunge! Details The tank can hold up to 700 gallons, and it’s 8 ft wide + 2ft deep. Only about $400 from Tractor Supply! I feel like we’re going to live in it on the hot days, so the price was totally worth it to us. We also bought a filter for it, but it hasn’t come in quite yet. I’ll keep you posted on the filter details.…

    Using What You Have and Being Grateful

    This has been such a time of worry, sadness and anxiety. It’s been heavy. Even so, I have found a sense of grounding in gratitude and that’s come from using what I have. Honestly, it’s unlike anything I have ever felt before. It’s all in the little things. The other day I couldn’t figure out what to make us for lunch. I saw pasta and threw together a little pasta salad not using the ingredients I would typically use. I’ll tell you, as I dug through my pantry and fridge, I became so grateful for each item I could find to throw in a pasta salad. Some carrots that were…

    Our Recent Disappointment

    I wish I were writing this post with new happy news. We were bursting at the seams from not sharing with you all. In fact, I had documented hundreds of stories and pictures for my Instagram just preparing for the day we could announce. We were under CONTRACT for the house of my dreams. Really, it was the house of my dreams. In fact, with the intention of building one day, I had drawn a layout nearly identical on a piece of paper last spring. Little did I know that a house with a nearly identical layout already existed. This home was over 100 years old and had an old…

    Princess Movies and Pink Snacks – Valentine’s

    Who doesn’t love a movie day with a marble tray full of PINK & RED snacks?! I know me and my lil sis sure do. It’s always a joy to have my 11 year old sister, Kelbee, around. I try to make things extra special for her so we came up with this little idea to go along with our Disney princess movie watching day. IT’S PERFECT FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR! This whole saga began with a trip to the grocery store! Kelbee and I walked the aisles looking for fun bright snacks that are pink and red. I think part of the fun was picking and planning the…

    Pancake Party for 3!

    Weekend brunch, anyone? We had my little sister Kelbee last weekend so we treated her to a nice little pancake party. Pancakes are so fun to serve because everyone can garnish them however they’d like and they can be so pretty! It’s easy to make something that’s usually ordinary into something exciting! Even my 28 year old husband was looking forward to this colorful brunch. All it takes is adding a few extras and displaying it nicely! Grab the fresh strawberries and pour the orange juice into a cute pitcher. We like options! Syrup, strawberry syrup and local to Alabama Golden Eagle syrup were poured into glass cups. Strawberries and…

    Showing Real Life While Growing an Instagram

    I recently realized the key to making my photos look like our actual home. Yep, ACTUAL home. Because we do live here! It’s all in the little details, friends. Bread, candles and mammals. Do you ever wonder what sets some photos apart from others? I did for quite a while. It’s when the photo/space looks live-able. Y’all, there’s a reason magazines pour lemonade in fancy glasses for their photos hoots. That glass of lemonade makes us feel like we could sit for a spell and enjoy life on someone else’s porch.   Placing food in a dining room or in kitchen is a perfect example of this! Some of my highest performing…

    3 Tips for being a GIRL BOSS

    For years people didn’t take my hustle seriously. I set a few guidelines for myself so I would take myself seriously. Instead of focusing on the negativity, I decided to respect the hustle. Skip the unvalued opinions.  From the moment I began my side hustle, total strangers would freely give their opinion about my pricing. Deep down, I knew what I was doing and went with my gut. Good thing I did because my low prices are what grabbed attention and built my now local customer base. People will always give their opinion about your business. Learn to skip it, brush it off, and listen to the trusted opinions only.…
