Tips for Organizing Your Pantry

I’m not an organized person. I wish I were.  It seems like such a nice thing. Organization. I mean I like organization…and I like the thoughts of organization…and I like to look at beautifully organized spaces…and shop the organizing aisles at Target. I just have a hard time sticking with organization. There is no follow through. I organize a space and buy all of the right organizing bins and labels and baskets. And I proudly show my family the newly organized space and explain the processes of what needs to be done to...

Be Brave

So the other day I shared about my fake picnic and how that changed everything. And since that post I’ve had more text messages and FB messages and comments that have been a blessing to my soul. And I was reminded of why I joined the wonderful world of blogland to begin with. I like you people. Like really like y’all. And I don’t want to leave y’all. But I also don’t want to waste your time with fake posts about empty crafts and projects. {Although I do have some fun projects that I’m planning!} I want to...

The Fake Picnic that Changed Everything

So today…I almost quite blogging.  I was all set to write my farewell post and call it a day. It all started with a typical afternoon. My girls were jumping on the trampoline after rushing home from school and I had about 15 minutes before we had to be to the next event of the day and I was setting up a picnic…that no one was ever going to sit down to. It was a fake picnic with no food and no people. I didn’t have time for a real picnic. It was just for the blog. And as I decided which candlesticks looked the best and...

Fall Front Porch Ideas

I’m tired…you probably can’t relate. I’m probably the only one running ninety to nothing. The only one with kids to get to soccer and cross country. The only one who has children who need to dress up like Disney characters tomorrow and didn’t tell me until we were getting home… at 8:00…with the costumes needed in the morning…really? I’m probably the only one who had exactly 20 minutes to cook dinner…pack it in a cooler…and rush out the door to the game. The only one who could...

How to Make a Fall Sign

So if you have 10 minutes and a garage full of randomness… …this is the project for you. And if you don’t have that garage full of randomness…maybe you are lucky like me and you have a friend with that perfect stash who is willing to share! My garage is certainly full enough. {Don’t judge. There are amazing treasures in there. Honestly.} So I had this idea that I needed a new Fall sign made with all fun letters…so I headed to my garage. But I couldn’t find what I needed. So I headed to the antique...

Welcome Fall Home Tour – Day 5

There are some things that I just never want to come to an end. Like our beach vacation last year…it was 10 days of paradise. No to-do lists…no alarms…lunch by the pool every day…my family together all day every day… …and I cried when we drove away. Real tears. All the while talking to myself to remind myself that I would be back. That there would be another beach trip next year. That I needed to count my blessings for such a treat as a beach trip. And that I just needed to get a grip for crying out...
