Fall Kitchen 2018 | Seasons of Home Tour

I have been a part of this amazing group of women, bloggers, designers, and entrepreneurs for many years now.  I can think back to all the years of the collaborations, inspiration, encouragement and more that we receive from one another because we are a part of a community. Gathering together not only brings home tours and fun posts but it also allows our communities to expand and grow deeper roots. Whatever role you find yourself in your life I have …

How We Celebrate Birthdays Around Here

I love birthdays! One whole day to love on just one person. One day that allows you to give a person a glimpse into how much their life means to you! It is almost 19 years ago that our birthday tradition began. It was my birthday during our first year of marriage and my day started off with a stack of envelopes. Keep in mind that we barely had any money in those years but what followed made me feel …

Hot Toddy Kits | Sharing Liquor With The Neighborhood

  We are surrounded by some pretty incredible neighbors but with all of the acreage between our homes, you have to go out of your way to connect and to see one another. That is probably why we are all out here and I would guess that most of us out here like having that privacy. Can you say introverts unite? I also think we are so lucky to have six incredible families that surround us that we get to …

Mid-Century Modern Library | Seasons of Home Holiday Series

  Simple touches around the house are my favorite for adding holiday touches each year. I have two small boxes that hold everything we need to decorate…tree ornaments, white lights, my favorite pom pom wreath and garland from Anthropologie. The rest we add through special recipes we make together, white lights throughout the home, pine branches from our land, candles burning, Christmas music and the people we gather. And the being ready. Having your heart ready to welcome people into our …

Simple French Tablescape | Seasons of Home Holiday Series

One of my favorite places to travel and get inspired is France. The art, museums, cafes, history, architecture, food and the linens…oh, how I love those handwoven French linens. Whenever I travel to France I try to bring home a piece of art, something to use in the kitchen and I try to find new or vintage linens. It is my way of bringing home the beauty of France in a way that my whole family can enjoy. It is …

Time to Gather + Rest

One of the sweetest creative gifts I have given myself is to honor my gifts with practice and also the times I have gathered with other creatives and honed my skills, took the time away and made my creativity a priority. I often don’t realize how fast we are moving or how much we are pushing each day until I schedule breaks, creating and time with friends. I would love to invite you to the last two workshops in our …

Fall Porch 2017 | Seasons of Home Series

  When we first saw our home and land it was covered in snow but out of my future studio windows I saw this opening in the trees and I immediately imagined lights, a long farm table and a gathering place for family and friends. Over the past year and a half, we have hosted workshop lunches in that gathering place, homecoming dinner, pizza with family and cocktails for more than I can count. With an umbrella of tree branches, soft …

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

I kind of love Mother’s Day. I have another reason to remind my mom how much I love her and how much she did for us. Pretty much we are half way decent people because she was a rockstar…stuff like that. I also get to get treated like a queen myself for one magical day! Finding gifts for people I love is one of my favorite things and I have a drawer in my bedroom with little treasures I find …

Living Room Before and After

We have officially been in this house for one year as of tomorrow. That is so hard for us to believe but when we look back over the past year we can’t believe all we have accomplished in that time (and all the things we still want to do). This home has creatively been so fun! It has allowed us to go a totally different direction with our style and to create a fun space for our family. This home …

Our Past and Present Fall Tablescapes | A Fun Look Back

I love that I have had the opportunity to be a part of many home tours over the years because our real holidays do not get documented. When you have company over, you are rotating what goes in the oven and you are talking with your favorite people and there is little time for picture taking. I do love preparing for the gathering though. It is a part of my creativity and simple tablescapes are so fun to do. I …

How To Create Inviting Outdoor Spaces This Fall

  What is not to love about a holiday all about family, friends, good food and just being together!?

Being outside is unexpected for dinner parties and it really brings new energy into your gatherings. I wanted to share how to bring our own fall tablescape together by using as an example of a tablescape I designed in our last home. 1. …
