• Gold Light Fixtures in the Kitchen

    I have partnered with Bellacor.com for this post. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. Full disclosure. Well, hello there! It’s been a few months since I have popped in over here with an update, but I am excited to be back with you today. Life with the little ones and working on our new home has kept me busy as of late. I am definitely enjoying watching Hazel, Owen and Violet grow and don’t want to miss a moment of it. We have been working on making the home we purchased last summer into our own. The biggest transformation, so far, has definitely taken place in the kitchen. The…

  • Our Next Home

    If you missed my post on Monday, I shared some exciting (albeit bittersweet) news that we sold our home. In that post, I gave a tour of our current home, staged to sell, and today, I am giving you a glimpse into our next place! When we began our journey into finding our second home, I had no idea what we would end up with, but at that time I thought perhaps a large old farmhouse with tons of space and acreage. After a long while of looking and seeing many different types of homes in our budget, my preferences were narrowed down quite a bit. With three young children,…

    So, we actually did it. We sold our home! After living in this two bedroom, humble colonial for seven years, we took the plunge and put it on the market. Surprisingly, it sold within the first weekend, to the first showing and above list price. More about that coming soon including how I staged it myself on the cheap. The decision to sell has been in the works for years. It probably started around the time Owen was a toddler. The two bedroom thing was starting to become an issue. Eventually we made it work by switching out the master to make it the kids’ shared bedroom. And then Violet…

  • A Vintage Rug for the Kitchen & a Giveaway!

    I have partnered with SF Rugs for this post. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. Full disclosure. I have been wanting a vintage rug in our kitchen for a long while and now I finally have one! Our kitchen renovation has been a very slowwww process to say the least, but we are still plugging away at it. Maybe it will be completely done by the time we put this place up for sale? Let’s hope… We started by painting our wooden cabinets light gray and adding hardware. It did make a huge difference to the look in here. Click here if you missed the BEFORE post.   When…
