My front porch


This is minimalism at its best. All this took took was a fresh coat of paint and a garage sale find for $80 bucks.

Sitting on a porch is the best therapy a person can get.

Life can be simple if you truly want it to be. Less is definitely more.

Be brave in everything you do

It only takes one step


It’s really simple. What holds us back from moving forward, taking that chance, or making a life change? Fear right?

Fear holds us back from more than we realize. For some of us fear can play a part in the simplest tasks. For starters, putting our two feet on the floor when we wake up in the morning. There is always something out there we dread that has to be dealt with in our day right?

Try this(myself included), start off with just today by saying no or not doing something with you are uncomfortable with, without feeling bad or guilty.

Little steps are a great way to get going on defeating what’s holding you back.

Consciously make an effort and take note on everything and every little feeling, like the pit in your stomach feeling, when you have to make a choice on what YOU want to do. Just say no. It’s really not that hard. Remember baby steps.

Good luck today.  I’d like to hear what you decided not to do today and how it felt to say no. Even if you say no to one thing, that is a great start.

Be brave and have a great day!

My Pinterest bedroom


Yup. I finally followed through on some design ideas I saw on Pinterest. ”This is one half of my bedroom and I must say I’m quite impressed with myself. No I’m not a narcissist lol.

Comforter set: Homegoods, $60 bucks

Headboard: Wayfair, $107 bucks

Wall prints(made from fabric: Goodwill $4 bucks for ALL!

Curtains: $7 a panel, Boscovs.

I’m sooo happy!!!

I did it over the course of 3 paychecks but I still made it happen and so can you.

My theory is that you can’t deplete yourself doing it or it’s no fun. There are so many ways to be smart about decorating.

Good luck!!!

A perfect hygge Sunday morning


It’s the little things….

A perfect cup of coffee

Your favorite candle burning

The smell of bacon cooking

Rain hitting the windows

And your kids sleeping safe in their beds….
