Month: February 2017

I don’t like change. I resist it like my toddler does a spoonful of spinach: I see it coming and hide my face. I have been planning this shared bedroom since before Christmas but I’m not sure if I will ever pull the trigger. I love routine and loathe transitions, and even though there are many benefits to bringing Lucie (Eloise…who we call Lucie but I like to throw her real name out there every now and then so we don’t forget it) downstairs with the rest of us, I am hesitant to upset the balance when they both sleep well.

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s); = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);

Our new mantel is finished and I am so excited to have this project done!

Today I wanted to show you the family room side of this space with our new rug that added the finishing touch. When I first saw this Villa Rug on our sponsor, ESaleRugs website, I thought it would be perfect for our master bedroom, however when it arrived I saw how it looked in our family room and realized I loved it even more in here!

I am so excited that our family room and breakfast nook are finished! Woohoo! Well, technically there are still a few things to finish up but the big projects are done and today I am going to start with sharing our breakfast area and new window seat. 

First let’s start with how the room started.


 Last week we had a did our monthly Blue Apron meals and I have a new favorite! It was actually a meal I was unsure I was going to like at all and now it’s not only my new favorite Blue Apron meal but one of my favorite meals of any kind and I cannot wait to make them again.
