My Fall Home Tour

Hi friends! Welcome to my home which is all cozy and decorated for fall! Grab a warm drink and I’d love to have you over for my Fall Home Tour!

This year I was inspired by some of the non-traditional colors that have been popping up everywhere. I love how seasonal decor can be so customized to your personal preference these days! You will see I have a lot of pink (yes pink!) pumpkins and some pops of deep red plum on a backdrop of some black and white plaid and buffalo check. And then, of course, my everyday neutrals I like to have around the house!

8 easy ways to make your home feel super cozy!

Cozy. Isn’t that what everyone wants their home to feel like? Like slipping on a pair of your favorite slippers or falling into a bed made with freshly washed sheets. The smell of coffee brewing or a yummy candle burning. Cozy is the feeling of being home, of being in your own private sanctuary from the rest of the world where everything is safe and warm and you can be totally in your element!

My Organized Pantry Reveal!

Oh glorious day, a beautiful day for an organized pantry reveal! If you have been following me on my Instagram, and watching my stories at all you will know that I started tackling my pantry which was quite the disaster back in March. It was actually even worse than the before picture but I had already gotten rid of a few things which were driving me crazy since it was a mess and I couldn’t find anything! I have been chomping at the bit to finally take the time to create a little haven in here, where it looks pretty and I can actually find what I need to cook with!

My Self-Care Routine: Relaxing Bath Edition

Recently I have been stepping up my self-care with an awesome new addition: taking bubble baths!! So I thought I would share my self-care routine: relaxing bath edition!

Our new house has this amazing garden tub in it. And I was so excited about it when we moved it because I love it when there is a dedicated bathtub. When it is separate from the shower because I feel like it’s so much easier to keep it clean!

I had been meaning to get around to taking a relaxing bubble bath in here ever since we moved in a year and a half ago but never got around to it! You see, I’m not really someone who takes the time to take a bath! It’s not that I don’t like them, I just never make the time for it.

Woodland Fairy Cottage Inspired Master Bedroom

Is anyone else SO excited that spring has finally sprung? I tend to really love the transitional, more temperate seasons of fall and spring but winter is usually just a tad too cold and long for me! And I love summer, but not the part of it where it gets super humid here in Texas! Anyways, one of my favorite times of year is when all the trees start to blossom. Such a beautiful way to transition from winter to spring. I recently made a few changes to our Master. So without further ado, I present our Woodland Fairy Cottage inspired Master Bedroom refresh for spring!

My goals and intentions for 2019

I’ve done a lot of thinking about what my goals and intentions for 2019 are. I have had some pretty cool results from doing these lists of my goals and intentions for each year so far. I’ve done them since this post in 2016 so this is the fourth year I am actually sitting down and compiling a list of things I want to focus on. It’s really kinda weird how the simple act of writing things makes it easier to achieve your goals. Part of it, I think, is that it forces you to actually decide what you want to do. Instead of just thinking lofty thoughts about what you might do. I also think just seeing things in front of your face, whether it is words you write down or a vision board you look at every day, makes abstract concepts and thoughts easier to think about in real life terms.

Looking back at 2018

I have really enjoyed doing these posts for the last few years. First I share the list of my goals for the year, and then I check in with how things went at the end of the year. It is truly crazy how fast time goes by, and if you don’t set specific intentions and goals for each year, it is so easy to just let your whole life go by on auto-pilot. Kind of just letting life happen to you instead of making it what you want. Basically, it’s the difference between being proactive or reactive. It has been super helpful to me to have a rough game plan for what I want to tackle each year!

Looking back at 2018, all I can say is that it was QUITE the year.

I’ll try to kind of recap in a somewhat brief way, all the biggest things that happened to us, and the things I have been thinking about and learning. Continue reading

Why I am so passionate about animal rescue: my story

The year 2018 was a year I will always remember as drastically changing my life. It was the year that I became aware of the shelter animal crisis in the US and just how many animals are put to death each year. I am forever changed because of it and I wanted to share my story of why I am so passionate about animal rescue.

Last March, I had an experience that would shape a lot of my thoughts and priorities going forward in life. It was life-changing in the truest sense of the word.  Continue reading
