I think I'm speaking for ALL the parents when I say it has been [ahem] creative coming up with ways to entertain the kids in 2020. Confessing that I've relied on electronics in those dark days and have also gotten super-mom creative on other days. Hey, it's a balance, right? Summer was a little easier to navigate with outdoor playdates, beach trips, and pool time, but as we navigate these cold months it's certainly a constant challenge to keep the kids entertained. What's more exciting than…

Lavender Pond Farm - I visited this spot when I was pregnant with Savannah and I would love to go back in peak season which is normally July. If you do end up visiting this amazing lavender farm and have children, I was amazed by the lavender bug spray they had! It lasted an entire summer and was like $11 and all-natural. It truly worked to repel bugs and we didn't have to worry about the harsh chemicals of a lot of the other bug sprays. OCEAN BEACH PARK I love Ocean Beach for kids because…
While growing up, we frequently visited our family in New England. One of my favorite memories is visiting my great-grandmother's old farmhouse.

I have…
Mudroom Entryway - Maximizing a Small Space

Unfortunately, my idea of keeping that area in the garage quickly went out the window come winter each year. The kids were not very fond of putting on cold coats and cold shoes and I can't say I blame them. So, the daily routine became unloading everything on the kitchen floor after school. When we built the house, we originally planned on having a very large mudroom with lots…
Happy fall! During my drive to the shop this past Monday morning, I actually had the heat on. The season is, once again, changing. The parched landscape will soon be rehydrated and revitalized. Golden hues will be replaced by rich jewel tones. And it will be time to focus on fall decor. What do you do to welcome fall? The entry is always an easy place to incorporate seasonal accents. You can change out the foyer rug / doormat, add a festive arrangement, hang a wreath, etc. None of those…
The IKEA Product That’s a Closet Secret Weapon
Sure, we probably all dream of having a Carrie Bradshaw-style custom closet. But those things are expensive. Really, really expensive. For all the rest of us, there’s a trusty IKEA product that will give you the look of custom shelving, for a fraction of the price. You may have already guessed what it is. It’s BILLY! The world’s most versatile bookcase, it turns out, makes for some pretty great closet storage as well.
