Happy Hump Day you lovelies. The only thing on my to do list today is to make more pillows (which makes today my favorite day) and that means the ipad will be on all day with netflix, amazon prime, hbo etc not in any particular order. I could use some tv show recommendations from y’all. My fav kind of shows are comedies but I am open to all. Comment below and fuel my show watching on ipad addiction 😬😁😁 PS- all the pillows sitting pretty on the bed are avail on my website ready to be yours. Link in description. #makingmyhaven
Impulsivity for the win! Just gave my cheap $6 target planter a makeover. I finally picked up a pot for my string of buttons here and even though I liked the bright white, I felt like something was missing. So! Bring in the Sharpie and blue tape for just a little bit of pattern. My sharpie did bleed a little (I think because of the plastic the pot is made of) but I kinda like it - gives it a more casual tie-dye vibe.
Happy Hump Day! . . . We are planning to eventually replace the flooring in this back room. I’m so torn on doing something that matches the rest or doing something a little more fun. Maybe a custom wooden floor? Tile? Mosaic tile? It’ll be a mudroom with a cozy vibe with seating, etc. What would you do?
woke up to the sunshine, so thought i would share a little look into the nursery✨ . we are still waiting on a few more things and then i will do a full tour, but i couldn’t help myself. also, shout out to my handy AF husband, you guys i tell him what i want and he just makes it effortlessly. the twins are so lucky to have a daddy like him. happy Wednesday, friends!
Today I felt unqualified for “this”, hypocritical even, for working in this ministry, online and in real life. Thoughts that I knew were lies kept filling my head, like that I’m a terrible neighbor, friend, parent, and shouldn’t be telling others about Jesus since I’m “terrible” at these things. I prayed for signs of confirmation that I should keep going, keep writing, and I got not one, but two. The first was an invitation to share a bit about my chapter in #sisterwalkintruth, because my message “resonated” with readers. I’m sure that could be said for all the chapters, but I felt encouraged by those words. The second was a text from my mom, saying how proud she was of me for writing the chapter, and the timeliness brought tears to my eyes. Ironically, my message people are being encouraged by is that they’re NOT enough, exactly what I, too needed to hear, again. No, I’m not qualified for “this”; no, I don’t have a perfect record to “teach” others by 🙄; yes, I am hypocritical sometimes, despite my best efforts. But that’s not what matters. The only thing that matters in ministry and life is that I believe that I’m not enough for any of these things, but trust that Jesus is for me and through me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Could you guys pray for reed and I? Pray that we’d be encouraged and our family protected, spiritually and emotionally. And if there’s anything I can be praying about for you, let me know❤️
I have been really good to myself. I can’t explain how empowering that is. To actually follow through with “taking a break”. I thought it would really be hard - but i realized how much it was needed. I have continued to post on social media - but i have not picked up a paint brush in a month. I haven’t even used my iPad. I have been walking in the sand , wading in the surf , hiking trails , sitting by the camp fire , sleeping in a hammock , biking in the woods , shopping , lots of researching , flipping through magazines , reading books to my kids , playing hide and seek , building forts, watching my kids play , supporting malco , sipping on coffee , feeding birds and squirrels and soul searching — lots of it. Today i will step into the studio with a fresh heart and mind. My soul feels stretched and ready for connection. Take care of yourself my loves xoxo

Design trend coming in hot! • • Arches have been something that I have been totally loving lately. They can really make a space THAT much cooler + really take it to the next level. I’m incorporating a couple in some new designs, I just need construction to finish! • • I’m a huge fan of mixing different eras. I love taking classic architecture + mixing it with more modern pieces + vis versa. I love that arches give a more classic feel + can bring out that New England charm to your home!
I’m still super proud of this simple wood box. Also our loveseat arrives today 🙌 which brings us one MAJOR step closer to this space being usable. Chair | Facebook Marketplace Plant stand | Facebook Marketplace Table | DIY

🚨 UNRELATED CAPTION ALERT Today is my 8th wedding anniversary! June is such a busy month for our family. My birthday, kiddo’s birthday, anniversary, my grandmas birthday, school let’s out, Father’s Day. Goodness! Choosing to get married in the month of June has basically cursed us to never getting to properly enjoy and celebrate our anniversary. Now that his mother lives nearby, we are getting to go out to dinner tonight. It’s exciting! The kiddo and I just arrived back home late last night after spending the weekend with his god mom. I have unpacking and household chores to catch up on in the meantime so I’m going to enjoy a mug of coffee. COMMENT BELOW ⤵️ What’s your favorite thing about a person in your life you love? For my spouse, it’s his consistency. He’s always been the same person and it’s comforting having that.
You guys asked for it so I posted the first video series of our kitchen walk through this morning! (I hate talking on camera so bear with me!)

Anyone else have no idea what day it is when the kids are home for summer break? . . . Made a few tweaks to this view, do you see them? Shout out to my girl @the_cornellranch for the inspiration for my orange branches. Love love love them, thanks Ash! . . . As always you can see sources for the goodies in this image (and others) with the link in my bio!
Are you team "have your kitchen things put on display" or team "tuck it all away?" I guess it's pretty obvious what camp I'm in? 🤷♀️ Kitchen tools, serveware and even the most practical items like a good wooden spoon inspire me. Why yes, I do get excited about a new spatula. 😂 For this reason, I'm really leaning towards lots of open shelving for our kitchen reno we are getting started on this summer. We have practiced living without a lot of upper cabinetry for the past few months (also, what it feels like to have bare plaster and lathe instead of a backsplash 😂) and I think that our kitchen actually stays a lot more organized without anywhere to hide all the stuff. Who knew?!
Jon says he has no idea what this piece of furniture is or why we have it. He says he finds it confusing... ⠀⠀ He is also going to be on ‘Talking Business’ on BBC World News today, discussing Japan, Norway and Switzerland, why they are the top three countries in The FutureBrand Country Index, and what that’s going to mean, both for them and forthe wider world. ⠀⠀ But yeah, it’s this little ole piece here that’s confusing!! 😆 ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
