I’ve realized that it’s necessary to change our spaces to fit the season of our lives. Right now, I have two 3 year olds, and one space that really needed to change was the entryway.

Thank you, Mom.

Thank you for teaching me to make mashed potatoes, homemade macaroni and cheese, roast chicken, banana bread, meatballs, and cheesecake.

Thank you for teaching me that homemade, from scratch is worth it, but it’s ok to use a frozen pie crust sometimes too.

Thank you for teaching me that cooking for others shows them you care,

Can you believe Easter is in two weeks? I feel like this school year has gone by in a flash.

Easter weekend is also the beginning of April vacation for my husband and me, so I’m looking forward to it even more than usual. For me, Easter always stands as a symbol of Spring.

Even though it’s snowing outside right now (I’m not even kidding. That’s New England weather for ya!) it is actually spring, so I’ve rounded up some super cute farmhouse style aqua decor pieces for you!

Aqua is one of my favorite colors, and I love to use it to decorate my house in the spring and summer. There’s something about a pretty aqua blue that just says warm weather, sunny days,

Every Spring, I get a burst of energy and optimism about home improvement. I’m going to fix this, paint that, finally replace this, and on and on. We’ve been living in this house for five years. In that time, I’ve planned out so many home improvement renovations, DIYs, and updates in my head, but haven’t actually completed very many in real life. I get busy, we don’t have the money, blah, blah.
