Happy Friday! Do you have a fun weekend in store? My whole family will be together for Easter, which I’m so happy about. Here are some things I found that I wanted to share with you this week. This tiny cottage has so much style. I think I could be very happy living there, what […]

Book Report: Quick Reviews of What I’ve Been Reading

My New Year’s resolution this year is to read more. Can I tell you how much I’m enjoying it? I’ve read nine books so far in 2019 and I get such a kick out of pinning a new one to this Pinterest board when I’m done. It’s the first thing I do after I’ve finished […]

A Places to Go and Things to Do List

Do you have a bucket list? I have put together lists like these in the past but they felt overwhelming and like too much pressure. Lately, however, I’ve circled back around to this idea and have begun creating a list of things I regularly think and dream about, but in a no pressure kind of […]

Happy Friday to you! Is it feeling like Spring where you are? My daffodils are up, and I’m waiting on the forsythia bushes to finish blooming so I can bring some branches inside. This picture is from a few years ago. Here’s what I found that I wanted to share with you this week: I […]

What I’ve Been Pinning: Foyers and Entries

There’s something about a warm, welcoming entryway that I find irresistible. I have a board full of them on Pinterest. Here are some of my favorites. I could study this picture from a North Carolina mountain home for hours. I love all the layers: the beams, the sconces, the lantern, the antique chest, and my […]

Chicago: Two Churches, a Wedding, a Library, and Some Amazing Views

We’re just back from four days in Chicago, where we attended the wedding of the daughter of some dears friends of ours. We’re in that stage of life where our friends’ kids and our kids’ friends are getting married. We have ten (!) weddings this year and they all fall into one of those two […]

For the Love of Green

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Do you celebrate? Parades? Special foods? I’d love to hear. I’ve never paid much attention to St. Patrick’s Day, but when I did my DNA recently I discovered I’m 1/3 Irish! To celebrate I’m sharing a little St. Patrick’s Day love via my love of all things green. I’m looking forward […]

Links to Love: It’s Almost Spring Edition

How ready are you for Spring? It seems like the longest, hardest winter in a while, doesn’t it? Here in Kansas City, we seemed to have turned the corner with (slightly) warmer temps and rain instead of snow. Fingers crossed that things continue to improve! To hurry things along, I added these white hydrangea pillows […]

A Bookish Resolution

I almost never make New Year’s resolutions, and I keep them even less, but this year a resolution found me and grabbed hold: to read more. The reason this idea resonated with me is that I’ve always considered myself a reader, but lately have found myself reading less and less, and I missed it. It […]

Around the House

I think Fall is finally here to stay in KC. A few summer-like days continue to pop up here and there, but the nights are cool and the leaves are changing so we’ve definitely turned the corner. I no longer “decorate” the house for the seasons like I used to, but I do like slowly […]
