Featured On Style Me Pretty Living

our home on Style Me Pretty Living

A few weeks ago, our home was shot for a “behind the blog” feature on one of my favorite sites—Style Me Pretty Living. I’m so excited to get to share the photos with you today. They were taken by Caroline Lima who patiently worked with my awkwardness when it was time for me to be in front of the camera :) A big thanks, as well, to Jacquelyn Clark who wrote the feature.


You can read my interview and see all of the photos here.

The Simplest Centerpiece: Lemons + Mint

I’m sharing the easiest, last-minute centerpiece idea from this table I created a couple of weeks ago. It’s colorful, smells great and takes a whole two minutes to throw together (Plus, it’s a good use for the mint that’s about to take over my herb garden boxes.)



If your table is larger, you could make several of these and vary the heights by layering some of them on pretty cake stands.

Hope you all had a happy Labor Day. Back to the grind!

Dare I Say Christmas Shopping? (Labor Day Sales!!)

I’m somehow just remembering that I swore to start my Christmas shopping at the beginning of Summer this year. Okay, well, the end of Summer would still be good. Or, maybe I’ll just buy myself a few treats and think about Christmas in the Fall—like after Thanksgiving. . . Either way, here are a few Labor Day sales I’m shopping and thought you may want to check them out, too.
