Yum Food & Fun for Kids Summer 2015

Hello there! It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post and I’m so glad to be back. I’ve been dealing with some family health issues and, over the weekend, we moved our son home. I’m thrilled to be able to spend some quality time with him over the summer before he gets ready […]

Decorating Crush: California Style

California Style- Blue & White Patterned Tile

Hello there! Did you miss me? If you follow along on Instagram, then you know I was in southern California for a bit of a birthday getaway. My husband went earlier for business, and I decided I could use a little warm weather and a break from the everyday, so I flew down and met […]

Year in Review: Celebrating 2014

Bloggers' Favorite Paint Colors Series

I may be a little late to the Year in Review party, but I thought for interest sake (even just for my own), I’d put together some of the posts you made popular in 2014. It doesn’t surprise me that paint colors are at the top of the list once again. And, apparently, I have […]

Back to School, Already?

Kid's Backpack Station

Although summer isn’t over according to the calendar, Labour Day Weekend marks the end of it in my mind. I don’t know if it’s just me, but July and August seemed to fly by. Here’s hoping for a gorgeous September! Yesterday, my son and I went shopping for furniture and supplies for his new apartment. […]

Tree Clearing {Probably Not What You Think}

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain- Quote by Vivian Greene

You know the expression, You Can’t See the Forest for the Trees? Well, it started to ring true for me this summer. A series of events unfolded that made me question what I was doing and why I was doing it. Anyone who has started a blog knows how much work and dedication it takes […]
