    It's just awful.

    i found earlier today.
    how sad. how terrible.
    may she rest in peace.

  3. Dumbwit Tellher says:

    So hard to hold back the tears. I know God has a plan but hard to imagine why she was taken? My heart breaks for her entire family, especially her two young children.

  4. Sweet Nothings says:

    🙁 so sad. her and her loved ones are in my prayers

    OMG! ….what the heck? This is so sad…what a loss for everyone…a great soul.

  6. Things That Inspire says:

    NO! I can't believe it, I simply can't – she always had such lovely things to say on every single post of mine and countless others. Her family is in my prayers.

  7. Elizabeth says:

    i dont think i followed her blog, but this is such sad news to hear. rip.

  8. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    Oh my gosh. I am a relatively new reader of her blog, but found it so lovely. This is just so terrible to read.
    Prayers to her family.

  9. LivingLivelier says:

    I'm so devestated for her family, and those beautiful children. What a wonderful tribute her husband took the time to write on her blog. So sad and unfair.

  10. Hamptontoes says:

    How very sad and tragic, there are no words.

  11. Tonia @Chic Modern Vintage says:

    Tears as I type….Thanks for such a beautiful tribute. She will be missed,

  12. La Dolfina says:

    I've been heartbroken all day and can't get her beautiful family out of my head or heart. I'm sure her husband Cory must be comforted by all the love flowing to him and his children from blogland where his lovely wife touched so many.

  13. Preppy Little Dress says:

    How sad! My heart goes out to her family! How tragic!

  14. Cristin says:

    my heart is broken and prayers with Cory and the kids.

    I couldn't even comment yesterday when I read his post, I too was in shock, why such a beautiful young life was taken, just heartbreaking. *Amy

    I just had to illustrate her home for her family. I know she would want to have that for her family. She inspired me that she went back to school to pursue something she was passionate about and that her husband was supportive too.
    I love that she made such an impression on each of us.

  21. thelovelylifestyle says:

    I too heard on Twitter, but could hardly get through Cory's tribute. So tragic.

  22. The Lil Bee says:

    I knew of her but I don't know if we ever read each others' blogs. Still, as you said, she was one of us. It hit very close to home to hear that news. Someone directed me to her blog where I read her husband's post. I feel for her family so much and am thinking of them.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
