What says “luxury” to you? Is it a beautiful bedroom or a sumptuous shower? Is it a large living room with plenty of space for that huge comfy couch? Or is it something different? I think that luxury to me would be having a bathroom large enough for the assortment of shampoos and conditioners my teenage daughter thinks she absolutely positively NEEDS. (Seriously, kid. How many do you have now?)

Life can be hard sometimes. Stress can wear you down and make you yearn for a retreat away from it all. I feel like everyone deserves a place that gives them comfort. Whether that be a beautiful bathroom where you can soak all your troubles away, a nice outdoor area where you can take in the simpler things in life, or even a wonderfully organized closet. (Can you tell what I did this weekend?)

Life on the Farm: Farmhouse Decor

Thanks to Chip and Joanna Gaines, the Farmhouse style has spread across the country and basically taken over as the predominate theme for home decorating. And unless you are fortunate enough to live in a farmhouse style home or in an older home, you are going to have to fake it until you make it. The great thing about this style of décor is that it is very easy to do this.

Farmhouses are incredibly popular right now. I think that may be due to our hectic lives. The farmhouse comes from a time where things moved just a bit more slowly. My husband and I were talking about how different shopping for gifts has become just last night. I went online and purchased a quick little thing for the youngest and he was explaining to the girls how long it used to take to get things in the mail.

It comes as no surprise to me that the Farmhouse style is still one of the most popular styles of house plans. They have to be one of my favorite styles, personally. I find that the styles can be very simple, or they can be very complex. Really, with a Farmhouse house plan, the sky is the limit. You really can make them into anything that you need them to be.

Final Days of Summer: Great BBQ Recipes and Summer Activities

I love to cook. I mean, I really, really love to cook. Cooking has always been something that has allowed me to make people happy in a very rewarding way. (I hate doing dishes, but that’s why they invented dishwashers, right?) I have wonderful memories of cooking with my grandmother and mom. Cooking is one of those things that can help make a bad day better.

The end of summer means the last of the barbeques, pool parties, and outdoor fun. Most swimming areas will be closing on Monday and traditionally Labor Day is the turning point in the weather. (Well, everywhere but the south where summer will hold us in its sweaty palms until closer to Halloween before finally releasing us.) So of course, we want to enjoy all of that glorious sunshine before winter comes barreling in.

The beginning of the school year always makes me more aware that my wonderful summer days are coming to an end. Fall and winter are coming and that means that I need to enjoy the last of the summer days before they are gone. One of the things that I enjoy the most, and I got this from my grandmother, is enjoying a nice cup of coffee on a summer morning and watching the sun come up. It’s a simple thing, but it just brings me so much joy.

Back to School: Top Ten School Supply Choices

Back to School: Top Ten School Supply Choices

23Aug 2019

I guess you could say I’m a “seasoned” parent. My oldest daughter is in Junior High and I pretty much have the school shopping thing down. I was thrilled that this year she didn’t have a school supply list. I could get her what I thought she might need instead of sticking to what the teachers thought they might use this year. Over the years I have figured out that some things are good things to buy for kids for back to school no matter how old they are or what classes they are taking.
