This is a fun one for me. I’m a clutter bug at heart and it drives me crazy. If my head and home are cluttered, I can't think straight and my focus is way off, but I’ve improved my odds against it over the course of the past year by becoming more organized and also by redirecting my focus towards things that I love to do.
I admire friends that get rid of things easily. I tend to focus more on the sentiment of an item and look for reasons to keep it. It’s a constant battle that I’m…Continue

Lake Havasu or Miami Beach might be the place to be when you’re in college feeling all froggie and young and single, but when it comes to planning a spring break for kindergarten age kids and younger, your focus becomes more on what you can do with the kids during the week while you take advantage of…Continue

Today marked the first day back to school after my kids' spring break. They were off for a total of eleven days. Yes, you read that right - eleven days. It was such a long stretch of time that by the time they got back to school this morning, it was almost like the first day back after…Continue

I'm so happy Spring is here! The weather has been amazing around here lately. Our garden plans are coming together. We even broke down and bought a rototiller, because we are serious gardeners now. I've got flowers on the brain, BIG time. I just want to fill my house to the brim with them. So it makes sense that I'm drawn to all of these beautiful, flower focused tablescapes lately. I've been pinning everything from small Easter table settings, to gorgeous fancy-shmancy wedding…Continue

The spring is both a beautiful and a dangerous season, and it's fast approaching in Australia. From one side there's the beauty of the nature, because this is the time when the trees start blossoming and getting back to life, which makes everything look quite…Continue
