As I sit here sipping a cup of piping hot Russian Spice tea (the name sucked me in today – usually it’s coffee for me any moment of the week), I can’t help thinking about my last blog post (July!) and how much crazy has happened since then. What a whirlwind few years this adventure … More Old doors and their usefulness
We are making progress! All we have to do is add shelves and we’re done! The sunny yellow makes our kitchen seem so cheery and bright – in a spring and summer kind of way! It doesn’t hurt that the paint was called Sunny Side Up:) I just love bright colors in a neutral room … More Sunny Side Up Coffee Station

I don’t know how much we ended up with, but it was enough to convince school districts to close Friday … More In Like a Lion
It’s no secret I love bulky sweaters and thick scarves, tall fashion boots and leg warmers. But at some point, winter just has to end. I’ve had my fill of bitter cold days this year.
