CHRISTMAS GIFT WRAPPING IDEAS

Hi, friends. Can you believe that Christmas is in just a few days?! 5 sleeps, to be exact. I am so beyond excited. This past weekend we spent some time baking, watching a couple of Christmas movies, and planning a bit of what our time over the holidays will look like with friends and family. My heart is so full.

The last couple of years I have done blog posts on my gift wrapping ideas (here is 2015’s post and 2014’s post). Wrapping Christmas gifts is one of my favourite things, and I have so much fun sharing my gift wrap style with those who choose to read Continue reading “CHRISTMAS GIFT WRAPPING IDEAS”

COZY CHRISTMAS BEDROOM TOUR – 2016

Hi again, sweet friends. I hope you’re having a lovely week, and a great December so far. As always during this time of year, I am feeling so festive and ready for the holidays.
Today, I am happy to share our Christmas bedroom with you! It’s all cozy and dressed up for the season.
Part of why I love decorating, and why I put so much care into wanting to set up our house in a beautiful manner, is that I feel our homes should be a safe haven, and a place we find rest and retreat. It is so important to me that myself and my husband feel truly at home where we live, and that is why I just love to create a lovely and peaceful space. This is what I began pondering when thinking of bedroom decorating, as those are our primary places of rest! So, I thought what better time to chat about that than our Continue reading “COZY CHRISTMAS BEDROOM TOUR – 2016”

JOYFUL HOLIDAY HOME TOUR – 2016

Merry Christmas!!!
Okay, so I know we aren’t quite there yet, but I’m sure we are all gearing up for the holidays, and no doubt feeling the buzz and excitement that comes with the season. Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year for so many reasons. Watching fun Christmas movies while curled up on the couch with my husband… bundling up in scarves and boots and drinking hot apple cider while taking a walk in the cold winter air… getting to spend so much time with family and friends, while feeling joy in giving gifts and in sharing meals. It’s all so wonderful. I also feel fortunate Continue reading “JOYFUL HOLIDAY HOME TOUR – 2016”

DIY CHRISTMAS ADVENT CALENDAR

Hi, friends! The Christmas season is upon us, and I am having so much fun getting the house all spruced up for the holidays. This really is the best time of year in my mind.

So, you know when you’re laying in bed at night dreaming up your decor, and suddenly an idea pops into your mind, and then you can’t sleep because you start thinking about all the details of it? No? Just me? I know, I’m a little crazy, but I’m sure my fellow home decor enthusiasts are with me on this one! Anyways, this DIY advent calendar idea was one of those times.

FRESH FALL TABLESCAPE

Hi, everyone! I hope you’re enjoying the first week of October. It has been nice to have some cooler fall weather the past few days here. It certainly has gotten me settled into the autumn season. I finally picked up my first pumpkin spice latte this past week (I know, I know, I’m super late to hopping on that train this season), and each year I almost forget how delightful they are until that first, blissful sip. Now there’s no turning back! Haha.
I am so excited to share that I am participating Continue reading “FRESH FALL TABLESCAPE”

COZY & FRESH FALL LIVING AREA

Fall is my favourite time of year for so many reasons. The chill in the air that requires scarves and boots. The coziness one feels snuggled up under a warm blanket. The scent of falling leaves in the cool breeze. And perhaps my favourite, the ever changing trees as the colours turn from green to vibrant yellow, and to burnt oranges and reds. To me autumn really showcases the beauty in nature that the Lord has gifted to us, to bring joy to our hearts. And along with all of that, I get to change up my seasonal decor in our home! Continue reading “COZY & FRESH FALL LIVING AREA”

LATE SUMMER UPDATE

Hi, everyone! I haven’t posted in awhile, and with fall right around the corner I thought I would just show you some photos that I have taken around our place throughout the summer. These are over the course of the last month or two, but will give you a little glimpse into how our home has been set up during the summer season! I will be honest, I got this idea because last night I brought out Continue reading “LATE SUMMER UPDATE”

BRIGHT WHITE KITCHEN

Hi, friends. I hope everyone has had a great week so far. Troy and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary on Wednesday, so it has been a fun couple of days for us. I am so looking forward to the weekend too (as always)!
I have a bit of a different post today, and I am really excited about sharing it with you! If you have been following my blog or instagram for awhile, you know that Troy and I live in a small apartment that we are currently just renting. This often leaves me wanting when it comes to being able to share photos of other areas in a home, rather than the same one room or bedroom that I do now. So, I thought it would be fun to expand my blog a bit and occasionally Continue reading “BRIGHT WHITE KITCHEN”
