baby feeding must haves
2/23/21

Ellie Joy is officially six months old which means that we’ve put food in her precious little belly for six months. Woof, baby feeding can be tough journey. Ours has been all over the place (and is still changing from time to time) so I’m going to do my best to break it into chunks […]

Entryway Makeover

Mississippi Entryway Makeover

We’ve lived in the Mississippi house for almost five months now! Time is flying. We have a lot of work to do on this 1980’s home to freshen it up a bit. We started in the guest bedroom (I’ll share more on that later!) and moved onto the entryway. Removing the textured ceilings in the […]

As for the diapers, I knew […]

Joyful Christmas
12/22/20

We moved into our 1980’s home in Mississippi three months ago. Time has flown by! We’re excited for all that is to come in this house and what we have planned to do with it. We love making over spaces! This one will be even more fun because of how much work it needs. Stephen […]

Pink Door Exterior

Charming Pink Front Door

As soon as I saw pictures of our Mississippi home while we were house hunting, I knew I wanted to paint the front door. Red is my favorite color but I wanted a pink door for years! We couldn’t do it with our South Carolina home because of the HOA and we loved our stained […]
