I'm sure you've heard the saying before "Home is Where Your Story Begins". And while I believe there ... Read More about Home is Where Your Story Begins
Hello Friends!! I’m so excited to be sharing 10+ amazing modern farmhouse floor plans with you today! Did you know that my very first post 10 Modern Farmhouse Floor Plans I Love was among my top ten highest viewed posts of 2018?! Since sharing my first floor plan post with all of you, I did a second post with 12 more modern farmhouse floor plans, and I’m back today sharing over 10 more amazing modern farmhouse floor plans!!
If you caught my post yesterday, then you know I shared how I believe our homes should tell not just any story, but our story. You can read it HERE, in case you missed it, but I pointed out some key pieces in my own home to share how it reflects us. I want our home to tell a story, Our story. While I love finding great buys at HomeGoods and Marshalls, my favorite things to decorate with are those that have a story. So today I’m sharing 5 ways your Home can tell your Story too!
With all the refreshing the new year brings us, I can’t help but take a look around my home with a refreshed perspective. Wanting to start off the new year with a freshly cleaned space, and decluttered surfaces, I can’t help but analyze over our homes decor, and reflect on the story it tells. Looking over every piece of furniture and knick knack, I ask myself the question ” Does my home tell our story?”, and the answer is YES!
Have you taken your Christmas decor down? Does the house feel a little empty? Every new year, once the Christmas decor has been taken down, and packed away, I go into full blown spring cleaning mode! It’s not that I haven’t been cleaning our house all through the holidays, but for some reason once the holiday decor is put away, I go into cleaning mode. It feels so good to get purge, and get things back in order after the holidays, but once I’ve gotten rid of every last speck of dust, I always get the urge to refresh. I’m not talking about giving every room a makeover, but I do like to buy one or two new home decor pieces to start off the new year! So if you are feeling like I am, and maybe that your home is feeling a little bare, I’ve rounded up my top home decor picks for 2019!
Each year I like to start things off by writing down some goals I have for the new year. I’ll be sharing more on how I do this personally, but I also set goals for the blog, and projects I want to do around our home. My husband and I joke that the winter is our “Project Season”, but typically it’s because we are cooped up inside due to impending snow. It’s fun to look back on goals I’ve set in past years. We don’t always get to every house goal we have for that year, but that’s ok, they are just goals, so we can shoot again for them the next year too. So here are my goals for 2019 for around our home.
HAPPY New Year friends!! Honestly, my mind is still just in shock that the holidays have come and gone. I find myself hopeful with what the new year will bring, but also asking myself the question “Where has the year gone?”. I love taking a moment to pause and look back over the past year, as we are about to embark on a new one, because when I find myself asking that question, I’m reminded of just how much was accomplished this past year. I’m ready to jump into the new year after I’ve taken one last look back. 2018 was quite a year, filled with so many wonderful things, so lets take a look at the year in review.
I can’t believe we are only 2 sleeps away from it being Christmas. Our kids can hardly contain their excitement as we get closer and closer to Christmas day. As we prepare to celebrate over the next few days, with family and friends, I wanted to take a moment to wish each one of you a Merry Christmas also.
As I get ready to start pulling out pieces to set the table for our own Christmas Eve dinner, I get so excited with the endless possibilities of what to create. I was looking through tablescapes I’ve done in the past, I noticed how no two are exactly alike. So today I’m rounding up 8 different Holiday Tablescapes I’ve shared in the past, for tons of ideas that you can implement on your own holiday tables.
Christmas is less than a week away, and I can hardly believe it! I really haven’t even begun to wrap my head around the fact, that right behind it is a new year, with all the new possibilities it will bring. I have to say though, I think my favorite part about having our Christmas decor up, is the glow of the white lights at night. That is always the part I miss the most when it comes time to take down the decorations. So to savor every bit of it, I wanted to share some pics of tree all aglow at night, and I’ve teamed up with some blogging friends who are also sharing little bits around their home of Christmas lights at Night. I’ve included the lyrics to one of my favorite Christmas songs throughout the post, for a special nighttime Christmas lights tour. Enjoy!
