Hey friends! This past month was busy for our family, and before I write my next article I want to document a few things that happened over the past month. My kids are now out on summer break, and though that creates a bit more chaos I am actually more focused in my work with them home (strange how that works!). Scroll down for an update on our laundry room plans, a family move (not ours!), and pictures of a trial garden tour. We need advice on our laundry room and would love feedback!Read More
I needed a new wreath for our front door, and wanted to go with something light & airy for spring through summer. I ended up mixing faux air plants with seashells we’ve collected at the beach on a disk style wreath. I made the wreath for $25—its modern and fresh, and something I can keep up from now through the end of August.
When I design a new wreath I go to a craft store and wander around for an hour. I lay out options on the floor of the store until I’m happy with the general look and price point of the supplies. Then when I get home I lay everything out and play around with the design until it has the feel I want!Read More
Finding a solution for internet routers, cords, and wires in a living room is not easy. Some homes have routers in a hall closet, but when we purchased our home (built in the 1990s) the cable hookup was in the living room. For months our modem, wireless router, and server sat on the floor of our living room while my husband and I discussed hidden solutions for our wire problem.

Thank you Logitech for sponsoring this post. Get whole home security with the Circle 2 security camera!
Before moving to North Carolina, we lived with our two kids in a city. We changed our scenery five years ago and moved to a suburban neighborhood. The neighborhood made sense with commute times and the age of our kids, and we have been happy in our community. While the previous owners of our home had a security system, we never felt the need to install a full security system.
We enjoy using technology in our home, and when I learned about the Logitech Circle 2, it seemed to be the perfect fit for our family. The Circle 2 camera has many great features and will monitor our home when we go on vacation or out of town. And the Circle 2’s minimal design blends in well to our kitchen and living room.Read More
