{ making me smile... }

Happy Friday! What are you doing this weekend? Bella came up with the idea to tutor younger kids and she's been working on "lesson plans" all week. She invited a couple of little ones to come over Saturday so she can test out her teaching skills. So cute! Here are some other things making me smile...

Gathering for family birthday celebrations this weekend.

Making Valentines with Bella. We've narrowed it down to these or these. I love Nichole's idea too.

Why French Parents are Superior. An interesting and worthwhile read. What do you think?

Planning a surprise pink breakfast for Valentine's Day.

This haircut. Tempted! {Love her outfit, too.}

Enjoy your weekend. Meet you all back here next week.

{ inspired interiors: dreamy whites }

Hi everyone! I missed you yesterday. Did you have a good weekend? I had planned to start a painting project over the weekend, but I realized I still needed to do some more organizing so it was more purging and cleaning. I'm ready for that to be done already! I did take some time to browse a few blogs and Pinterest, which is where I stumbled upon Maria's lovely home. Maria owns the appropriately named, Dreamy Whites online shop and lives with her husband and 5 children on a horse ranch in California.






Honestly, I haven't been able to get this home out of my mind. It's images like these that make me want to bust out the paintbrush and paint everything white. Maria makes it look easy, but she does an amazing job carefully editing the elements in her home, mixing in different textures and subtle tones to give her spaces more depth and interest. When you have a few moments, you must browse the beautiful Dreamy Whites blog and french farmhouse inspired shop--hours and hours of eye candy!

Have a beautiful week!

{ flower power }


Happy Monday, friends. What did you all do this weekend? We had a quiet couple of days, which provided me the opportunity to dig into some of the de-cluttering projects on my to-do list. Phew…it felt good to knock some of those out! I was also brave and ventured into the backyard, which is very brown and very sad looking these days. Sprucing it up is going to be a BIG project! Just as I was starting to feel overwhelmed by all of the work that needs to be done, I spotted this single, pink bloom peeking out. I ran inside, grabbed the clippers and popped it into a vase. It was just what I needed to remind me of the beautiful possibilities ahead…

Have a lovely week!
