    Photo Wall Art

    What better wall art than pictures of your beautiful family? Weather it’s you and your fur baby or significant other or maybe you’ve got a million grandkids, those beautiful faces are sure to brighten your walls and heart! For a while I sadly got away from using pictures of us as decor in our home. So I decided to make up for that lost time in a big way! Poster size, babe!!  Yep, I had poster size pictures of me and Aaron printed! Of course I chose two of my favorite pictures. One of us taken for the GRAM in the garden with my iPhone and the other is a…

    We Bought a Canoe

    I love taking credit for good ideas but this one was Aaron’s idea. Last week we bought a canoe and took it to Lake Martin! It was so much fun. The canoe we bought is apparently a pretty popular canoe because I had many messages from IG followers saying they had the same canoe! I didn’t know canoeing was so popular! I can totally see why though! The canoe we bought is a Saranac 146 Canoe by Old Town. This canoe has two padded contoured seats with SEATBACKS! Pretty comfy! It also has a little storage space and cup holders. You know – you GOTTA have a cold drink on…

    Fall Inspiration `

    Fall will be here soon, buddies! I’m so thrilled about that because I LOVE FALL time! I figured it would be fun to share some previous falls in our home. Hopefully you can draw some cozy inspiration from these!  Don’t forget to make some yummy treats this year! Here’s our butterbeer recipe! Trust me – it’s so yummy!  Simply adding some candy corn in a two gallon glass jar counts as decoration! It’s yummy too!  There is so much beauty in fall. Even washing off pumpkins looks pretty!  My mom and I made this wreath from pampas grass growing in my back yard. I treasure this sweet fall memory.  The porch…

    Painting the Living Room Window Black

    Our Favorite Window This window is in many ways a signature of our home. It’s an identity of our home. No matter the season, folks know it’s our living room as soon as they spot this window. This pretty lookout was added to our 100 year old home by a previous owner years ago. It overlooks our back property and it’s one of my favorite things about the house.  A New Paint Trend This window was previously white, but we decided to change things up a bit and give the black window trend a try.  We love it!! As you know, there are lots of black accents in our home, so this…

    Hats + Blanket on a Wall

    Do you ever get tired of seeing the same murals or shelves on the walls in your bedroom? If you’re thinking about changing up your wall decor any time soon, this post is for you!

    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…
