Surviving the storm and trimming the shrubs

read

The other night, the wind was absolutely howling through our little valley leaving me surprised any tree was left standing. But you can bet this blogger-nerd was on top of it! I ran out there barefoot my iPhone and captured a true Instagram Stories moment filming the willow tree out back swaying like crazy. It was gorgeous actually. Sidenote: […]

Lessons from the fall rain

read

I’m beginning to appreciate the many layers of fall. It seems like yesterday that I was moping about the heat of summer leaving us. It packed its shades and sunscreen and just flat out left our country seemingly overnight, leaving leaves all over the place in complete haste. The nerve!

I thought I was so smart. It had rained for several days and the newly seeded grass did indeed sprout! So So […]

Imagine ALL your all season home decor items having the ability to magically morph into full out fall or Christmas with the snap of your fingers.  Wouldn’t it be amazing to get rid of the big boxes of Christmas we only use 1 month out of the entire year? Only to use things we use every day instead? Yes… why yes it […]

The unintended trailer sale. Or was it?

read

As if my summer wasn’t weird enough, fall is falling suit as well it seems. I’m attempting to fall decorate… however aside from the wood pumpkin I made by the front door, everything I’m touching seems to be turning into Christmas instead, thanks to all the Buffalo Check touches I’m putting in. Hmm… So I stop, […]
