I can’t believe I’m writing a blog post on family planning! For as long as I can remember, I have wrestled with the idea of having children. I’ve never felt that urge or tug on my heart to become a mother until after we got married. And when all of our friends started having children, something changed for me.
We were supposed to be celebrating my husbands 30th birthday and residency graduation on the beautiful beaches of Bermuda, but COVID-19 had other plans. Once we found out our flights were officially cancelled, I went into party planning mode!
Medicine is HARD. The amount of education and training a doctor has to go through is overwhelming, and I think most individuals know that, but what they don’t know is how hard it can be on the spouse.
Better late than never! Our moody main bedroom makeover is finally here. This was an extremely challenging time to work on a house project. There were shipping delays, stores were closed and we froze spending in case we needed our savings. Not to mention, I was only living at our house for about 20% of the time.
I got the chance to dream up my picture perfect backyard with Wayfair, and it was so much fun! Our new yard is completely empty and full of potential. The size and layout of our one of the things that sold us on our house, so I’m extremely excited to turn it into a little oasis for us to enjoy with friends and family all summer long.
This week was all about my beautiful, new Persian rug. As soon as I got it into the room it completely brought together the look and feel of this space! Rugs can be so tricky, so I wanted to offer a few tips and tricks to picking the perfect one for your space.
It’s week three of the One Room Challenge, and I have been getting so many questions about our bedding! We recently got a new mattress and replaced EVERYTHING. Now it feels like we are sleeping at a hotel every single night.
With the COVID-19 pandemic limiting travel, I have no idea if we will be able to take our trip in July, but we are hoping for the best. I bought these adorable Target swimsuits just a few days after surprising my hubby with plane tickets!
It’s week two of the One Room Challenge, and we are moving right along on our dark and moody master bedroom transformation. We have a big, blank wall behind our bed and I knew it needed a little extra something. I landed on the idea of DIY board and batten.
I knew I wanted to paint a room black in our new house, but I wasn’t sure which one. I landed on our bedroom and I’m so excited to watch this design come to life (I hope you are, too)!
I can’t believe mother’s day is almost here. Do you have your mother’s day gifts ideas yet? I haven’t purchased my mom a gift yet, but I’m totally buying her one of the cards below! This year is flying by. My life is so busy and hectic that sometimes I drop the ball on recognizing the special people in my life. One of my intentions for this year was to be better about making an effort to make my loved ones feel loved. I love supporting other small shops and makers and these types of items always make heartfelt gifts. Here are some of my favorite mother’s day gift ideas from Etsy:
What can I say? Quarantine has turned me into a cocktail queen. We have tried 10(ish) different recipes with various types of liquor, so here are our favorites…
This quick bedroom refresh happened in just 48 hours thanks to Nectar. My mom texted me these sad photos and asked if I could help spruce up one of her guest bedrooms and of course I said, “Yes!”
