Home.


We have been pretty lucky to rent really cute vacation rentals.
Although I do spend a LOT of time looking at pictures of the rentals
before even reading the description to ensure a good fit for us.

I like to stay in homes that are our style.
Decorated in fun colors.
Crisp bedding.
Clean modern lines...but comfy.
So far, we have scored each time.

I always worry though how hard it will be to come home to our house
after staying in these cute vacation rentals in our dream town.

Last night we pulled up at 9:00 pm.
We had been gone for two full weeks.
I walked in and out of each room of our house
taking in the decor, the smells, the memories
and exclaimed when Dave walked through our door....
"I LIKE our house!"

He was a bit confused, but smiled and agreed with me.
It helped that we already had a San Clemente pillow on our master bed!

AND....if you are still here and reading my blog thank you for your patience.
I took a little {almost month long} break.
These sweet foster babies take up much of my heart and mind
and I can't blog much of what is going on.
It has paralyzed me a bit with sharing my heart
since it is so entwined in them right now.

But I'm hoping to get back into my blogging routine.
Thanks for hanging in there with me.
Dave says if you are still reading you deserve a giveaway.
I'll work on that!!

  8. Welcome back! Love reading your blog!

    Question: I recently moved in with my MIL and our taste in home decor is a million miles away from each other. I basically have the same clean, white, bright, sunshiny love taste that you do. She loves all things dark, brown, and early 90's. Any suggestions to bring the love together??

    1. I actually really like the look of dark wood with white walls. Any chance you could suggest freshening up the walls with some white paint?! That would be a great start without getting rid of all her dark. Then start accenting with navy, turquoise, yellow and gray with that dark brown and white walls! Good luck.

    2. Ya, baby steps... Thanks

      Also, just a little (wink), I know at one time you were thinking about doing a craft camp of some kind if I remember correctly. With Fall soon approaching just wanted to let you know I am sure people would love to do some crafting!!! I know babies keep us busy. But crafting keeps us sane:)

I heart comments! Just one rule that I'm sure your momma taught you...if you don't have anything nice to say...please don't say anything at all!
