Summer patio revamp with a reclaimed wood farm table

Patio sized reclaimed wood farm table for lap top use with straw hat wall art on a summer patio |

I can’t believe I’m actually sitting on a newly painted, AND clean patio, compared to just one short week ago! It must have been all that rest we took this summer. I knew once home I’d be antsy to get productive, but I had no idea I’d be doing this! And that just goes to […]

bike ride caught sunset-5606

Hi friends! I so miss having a cool DIY to share, or showcase some of my trip adventures. Truth is, I’m playing catch up with appointments galore, and visiting my sweet sister in the hospital, that has just had surgery to remove a bout of cancer. Thanks to those of you that are praying for her healing. I’m so proud […]

Your first thought would probably be… “Wow, did they not respect me enough to provide me with a pretty place? So…. once I got home, slowly but surely, my eyes started darting […]

Well, our Hawaiian adventure has come to a close. We are officially now home, and I’m busy nursing jet lag, wading through 6 weeks of mail, and cuddling the cats. Ohhh my cats!!!! I didn’t feel the ‘dread’ of coming home like I did last summer. I was ready! And boy, that crisp air and my own […]

A trip full of happy twists – Hawaiian travel update

Charley Young Beach in Maui

Where did the time go?! I realize I haven’t blogged much this past little while. Between a laptop computer that isn’t cutting it speed wise, (upgrade ahead!) and lazy wifi, and… well, the overwhelming amount of pictures to weed through, I’ll just admit it was easier to go on another adventure or take in the […]

The words and images and feelings just wouldn’t stop! But something magical happens when you hit around week 3. […]
