Merry Christmas to all…

    What a horrible thing to happen! I had to go to training about what to do at work if there was an active shooter. It was surreal. I am glad to be retiring this year. Have a happy holiday and try to keep busy doing fun family things. I enjoy your blog and your family posts are so sweet too.

    I couldn’t help but get a little teary-eyed reading your blog today! Wow, I’m glad it ended well. It’s scary that you not only had to worry about a shooter but getting safely out without getting run -over by the crowd. I hope you and your family a wonderful Christmas! Your blog is on my daily reading list!

  3. So sorry to hear this – thank goodness your family is safe. Merry Christmas!

    God that must have been terrifying for you all. It’s a scary world we live in today and to be caught up in something like that especially when you have your children with you is unbearable. I’m so glad you are all safe. I hope you had a lovely Christmas Day and all the best to you and yours for 2016.

    Wow, I can’t even imagine…. glad you were all okay. Your little ones will have lots of questions. Fortunately (or unfortunately….) there are a lot of good articles online about how to talk to kids about gun violence.

    I’m so glad to hear you are ok and the wasn’t another mass shooting. Living in Australia where mass shootings are really rare, I can only imagine the panic. I wish you and the family a very happy and safe remainder of the holiday season. Thank you for sharing this and pieces of your life with us.

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, […]

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 […]
