Your Home is Beautiful (Repost)

 This was originally  posted in October 2018 but it still rings true so I'm re-sharing today.    We live in a crazy world. Just a few years ago you had to pick up a physical magazine in your hand to get decor inspiration. We could look at gorgeous space after gorgeous space and feel good about taking a few items of inspiration to our own homes, but not getting too stressed out because hello, only the people in magazines live like that! I even remember going to the real library to check out actual books for my Interior Design classes!  ...

Five Quick Home Refreshers

Five Quick Home Refreshers

It’s been raining for days here and I really don’t mind it one bit. When it finally moves out you can see what it’s done.

I am absolutely loving the trend of a well made food board… charcuterie as it’s fancily known. There is just something about artfully stacking food until it becomes a masterpiece and then watching your people enjoy it so much. I’ve even done boards for kids playdates because the moms and kids can all enjoy it and it just makes people happy. If you’re all about doing the big displays with all the things stacked up… please go for it. Do it everyday if that works for you. But if we’re being honest, that can get expensive… and time consuming. So...

Quick Dinnertime Pickles

Quick Dinnertime Pickles

Pickles are a big time favorite around here. We’ll pretty much take them in any form but there is something extra special about making these quick, fresh from the garden treats. We'll snack on them as dinner is cooking and they're always gone way too quickly. It’s even better that you can add your own flavors and variations to make them your own. Start with this basic recipe then, see where your imagination takes you.   Ingredients 1-2 Fresh Cucumber White wine or rice wine vinegar Fresh Dill Salt Pepper   1.
