Summer Sewing + Embroidery

Hi there! Just wanted to share some sewing projects I have finished up. Several of these were for us, and some were just me playing around with my embroidery machine (which is always fun!). I realized I also sewed a couple blankets and pillowcases which I didn't get pictures of.

Summer Front Porch

Hey there! Popping in to share some pictures of our front porch today. It was rather neglected last summer but now I've made it into a happy, inviting space (even if it is small). And the hydrangeas are starting to bloom again!

Summer Survival Tips

Happy (Official) Summer!

Some of you are just starting summer vacation, but it's hard to believe that our kids have been out of school for almost a month now! We are getting into the swing of things and enjoying lazier days.

I'm a little late to the game, but wanted to compile a list of ideas I've found online to make your summer go smoother with kids. From fun ideas to reward charts to daily chores to staying organized, there are so many great resources out there.

Everybody needs a little down time now and again

I'm trying not to pick too many new "systems" because I don't want to go overboard, but here are some that have caught my eye and we may implement in one way or the other.

Touches of Blue Decor

In rediscovering my decorating style over the past year, I find that I am drawn to cool, calming, coastal colors and soft neutrals. One color that keeps showing up in decor everywhere is blue, specifically aqua. I hope I never tire of it!

It's nice to have similar colors throughout the house so decor can be mixed and matched.

Tyson's First Lost Tooth

It's a miracle! At 7 years 2 months and 8 days, Tyson has lost his first tooth. Not that anyone was counting or anything, haha!

School's Out For Summer!

As of last Thursday, the kids are on summer vacation! The month of May was quite a whirlwind and we're definitely ready for a more relaxed summer "non-schedule".

But what a great school year it was! Miles finished preschool and Tyson completed first grade.

Fun with their buddies
