Ch-ch-ch-changes

Cate Mezyk - June 19, 2017

We’ve had some changes go on around here. If you follow us on Instagram, then you may already know what I’m talking about. After years of hoping it would come to be, we had our carpet pulled out in our family room, and now the majority of our main floor is American Walnut hardwood. When we moved in, we had a two year old and …

House Tour – My Front Room

Tammy Hiveley - June 30, 2016

Last week you got a glimpse inside my front door. Now’s it’s time to come in and sit down for awhile. Let’s chat about our day, tomorrow’s plans, and all our parenting highs & lows. When we built this house a year and a half ago, this room was marked as a formal dining room or office. While those options were nice; I’d always wanted a formal sitting room. Like the …

An Amateur’s Guide to Floral Arrangement

An amateur's guide to floral arranging

I have a brown thumb. And that’s why I love having fresh flowers in my home. I don’t have to feel any guilt over killing those pretty blooms, because they already come with a shelf life. I can enjoy them knowing that my time with them is short. But it doesn’t have to be as short as you think! My favorite thing to do is …

Loving You Is Easy Cuz You’re Beautiful

Cate Mezyk - January 22, 2016

You guys. Doesn’t it seem as if a half a nano-second ago it was Christmas and New Year’s? And a nano-second really just isn’t very long at all, now is it? Suddenly, I’m looking at my calendar, and I see that it’s nearly Valentine’s Day. What?! I swear, time is moving in fast forward lately. Is it like this for everyone, or just for me? …

A Peek into My Family Room

Tammy Hiveley - January 12, 2016

We’ve been in our new house for over a year now. On one hand it feels like we just moved in… but on the other, it feels like we’ve been here for years. We can’t imagine living anywhere else. Since then we’ve loaded the vast cupboards, cabinets and closets we swore we couldn’t possibly ever fill. Bah! It’s like we took that as a challenge. We won lost? Not sure …

Thankful Decor

Cate Mezyk - November 19, 2015

I’m super excited to be hosting Thanksgiving again this year. We have a pretty giant table and I love having as many people around it as possible. My family and my friends gather around, and we share life together. We’re thankful for all that we have, and for each other and our relationships together. This year, there will be 13 of us. Thirteen people, sharing food, …

Fall Table Decor

Cate Mezyk - September 10, 2015

With Labor Day past us, it was time to change out my table decor in the kitchen. Every season, I like to switch things up – but I like to keep it as cost friendly as possibly. I’ve been saving random glass containers, like pickle jars (you’ve already seen them used on my screened porch for candle holders), a gin bottle, and even iced coffee …
