Had a wonderful time with our Friendsgiving last night with 6 other ladies.
We kept the gathering small and enjoyed fabulous food and lots of laughs around the table.
Setting a dining table and enjoying a meal with friends was refreshing and encouraging.
So grateful for ladies I call friends; to laugh with, to cry with and share victories and well as defeats. Love these gals and what they mean to me.

My home is still untouched by Christmas decor but that’s about to change!!
This weekend all the boxes come out from storage and Christmas decorating begins.
Who is already finished decorating for the holidays or are you just getting started?

Back in April I finally convinced my husband to let me paint our brick fireplace. (Only took 7 years) Wow! But he finally gave in and his only comment, “why didn’t you do that sooner?” ... 🤦‍♀️

I can’t wait to decorate my painted brick fireplace with Christmas decor this year.

We used @benjaminmoore White Dove and it has held up so well.
I love it!

Favorite room in the house...my kitchen!
A couple years ago our home flooded thanks to an overflowing upstairs toilet...ALL NIGHT LONG! (thanks to my son) When I came downstairs I didn’t understand why it was raining in my kitchen.
I could have literally floated rubber duckies in the kitchen drawers.
Fast forward 6 months and I was blessed with a brand new kitchen and I love it. So grateful to not only share this lovely space with my family but also friends!

Learn how to take some $13 grocery store blooms and foraged branches to create a stunning centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table.
It’s not as hard as you think. So get outside, find some branches and head to the grocery store for some inexpensive flowers and enjoy creating something. You can do this!
Check out my post on the blog for all the tips!

Would also love to see what you create so tag me and I will feature you in my stories.

Have you begun putting up your Christmas decorations yet? I haven’t quite started but have been planning. I keep my decor simple because quite frankly I’m too lazy to take it all down in January!
I’m still enjoying November and cut a bunch of these grasses while hiking. Check out the blog on ways to bring life into your kitchen. It’s easier than you think!

As much as I enjoy sharing home ideas to inspire you; it’s impossible to live in a perfectly edited staged photo 24/7.

Most of life is unedited and you can see this in a real life, kids just got home from school picture. (Next)
I love social media as much as the next gal but keep in mind that images are here to inspire. All of us live unedited.

So...even though Christmas decor is already taking over our feeds we still have Thanksgiving to look forward to. Even though I’m not hosting Thanksgiving this year I am hosting a Friendsgiving and planning all lovely table decor.

Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year or enjoying the festivities elsewhere?

Did you all get to sleep in today? I sure did and it felt glorious.

I got up and cleaned our bathroom and then had time to make us all a nice breakfast. Now it’s off to soccer games but this morning was just what I needed. Hope you all got some extra rest so you are ready for #trickortreating

Looking to decorate your house but not break the bank?

Last week I was going through thrift store withdrawals and my thrill of the hunt self stopped at the Goodwill after grabbing groceries and I found some great pieces.

Over the years I’ve found so many thrifted items that work perfectly for fall decor. 🍁 Check out the blog for some common thrift store staples I see pretty regularly.

Pumpkin #spice and everything nice! This easy no-machine required 5 ingredient #pumpkin #icecream is a MUST make this weekend. One of my life long dreams is to run my very own ice cream shop.🍦 I recall my first encounter with ice cream as a little girl growing up in MA and stopping by Chandlers Ice Cream (next photo). Honestly, Mr Chandler was better than Santa every time he handed me my strawberry ice cream cone. (I only ordered strawberry because it was pink). What are some of your childhood memories?!? Find the recipe here: https://bit.ly/3dKxPAR or link above.

(Before & After) One thing we did to save money on our kitchen remodel was by being our own general contractor. We designed, purchased items, and booked our own workers. Instead of hiring someone else to do this task we saved a ton by managing this ourselves. Not going to lie...it takes a lot of extra effort and stress but by acting as our own GC we saved, leaving us extra in the budget to accomplish more home projects. We learned, saved and accomplished more! I’d say that’s a TOTAL win! (Swipe to see before & after). Check out the blog for the entire reveal. Cabinets: @durasupreme | Tile: @tilebar

You may not be living in your dream home but really what is that? We should make our home a dream for or family and others to be in. I doubt most of us live in what we consider our “dream home” always things we would like to change or renovate. Crazy thing is that my image of the perfect home has changed over the years and I can’t move every time I desire a new home plan. Create a space that’s yours. We updated this space (swipe for before/after) but I still need to add art above the sofa and a updated coffee table. All in good timing. Enjoy the process and the home you are blessed to have.

Found these lovely branches on my hike yesterday. When I came into a clearing this lovely oak tree with its red leaves just called my name. I love foraging for and including seasonal branches or greenery in the home. Do you forage or and I the only crazy one here? Cabinets: @durasupreme | Lights: @jossandmain | Rug: @target

Has your Saturday been relaxed or filled with activities? I chilled out at home today as my family went on a hike. I just didn’t feel right leaving the dog home alone for 13 hours but I have to admit I enjoy alone time so it all worked out. The dog and I went on our own hike and I got some work done. For me...this was a good day.

I keep a pair of clippers in my car at all times just in case I see lovely foliage by the road. Trimmed these branches while on a hike. I try and forage for branches while my kids aren’t with me because they now get embarrassed by my wonderings. Click in link above for foraging tips. Happy Weekend!!

Added a few touches of fall to our family room fireplace. Simple and minimal. Found these grasses by the side of the road and scored this vintage oil painting this summer while antiquing with a friend in North Carolina. It’s the perfect touch of fall.

Always remembering those who served to make us free this Memorial Day weekend. The privileges we enjoy today in the USA came at a great cost. My grandfather never really talked about his time in WW II and flying in the planes that dropped bombs over Germany. The stories he could share but never really did. I am grateful for those who have fought and continue to do so that we might enjoy freedom. #neverforget
