It’s the start of a brand new week and I thought I would kick it off by sharing a friend with you. Jo @thelifeabundanthomestead is such an inspiration. She is a light! Her home is beautiful, but what is even more amazing is her heart. She is one of the bravest women I know and carries herself with such grace. I absolutely adore that she shares her faith, her heart, and vulnerability. Jo doesn’t put on a facade...she tells you the truth as she lives by the Truth. I promise that you will be blessed by her... @thelifeabundanthomestead. ❤️ . . #vintagehomedecor#thethriftedhome#thecottagejournal#littlebylittlekitchen#farmhouse#simplefarmhousedecor#onetofollow
3 5 0 0 HOURS - the average amount of time a person will spend looking at screens this year. As I have mentioned many times before, I struggle with migraines, headaches and eyestrain on a weekly basis. I work in front of a computer 40 hours a week plus screen time on my phone everyday. #ad The @pixeleyewear team has created a lens to reduce digital eyestrain caused by computer screens. *without the yellow tint* These glasses will help filter blue-light exposure caused by screens. Eliminating dry eyes, blurred vision, eye fatigue and headaches! Do you experience any of these symptoms or could you use a pair of blue-light filtering glasses?

Do y’all remember this architectural piece from my stories? It was my favorite @vintagepickin find at the last barn sale! 😍 Do you think this should be it’s new home above the door? Too much or just enough? Comment and let me know! 👇
Ugh Monday. 😑 Back to the old day job. Can it be Friday again soon!?. . Anyways it was a crazy, busy weekend out of town so now we’re back to the real world and playing catch up. That’s all I’ve got today...... 🤷🏼♀️. . . 📸 Megan @txsizedhome

After and Before. A brand new garden space appears. After clearing out the old iris and the gross wood chips, we shaped the new garden out with matching brick. We totally lucked out with fill dirt from the koi pond we dug out yesterday, hauling over 8 wheel barrels worth to fill in the space. We added a organic nutrients and started packing it down. We are beyond happy with the way the new space turned out and are excited to plant some herbs and ground fruit. New grass for the bare spot behind it comes next Saturday too. Needless to say we are beyond happy with the results.
Enjoyed being together as a family to celebrate my hubby for Father’s Day! I love having all of us together in a space that feels comfortable, relaxed, and clean (even when it’s not exactly 100% clean)! A lot of that has to do with the designs, materials, textures, and colors that we can choose to make your home always feel put together, even when you’re having fun making a mess!
The pool house...ahhhh. 😉 We had breakfast out here today. And I suspect we will have drinks here tonight. 🍷 I think this is my first father's day away from home. And since it's the first without my dad, and we're also without my husband's dad, it's kind of good to be away. 💗 We've been focused on celebrating my wonderful hubby and the other great dad in this house. 😊 The kitchen is right off this pool area. And I'm doing dinner tonight so I've been enjoying this view while food prep happens. We're here with another family so there's ten of us. There's lots of fun noise which I really like! We're having crab cakes tonight. And as a Maryland native, I claim to have the best recipe ever. 😉 Now let's pray I don't burn them-- now that I've said that! 🙄
