A week straight of patio doors open 🙌🏻 We have a lot of color going on in our house but there’s a lot of white to balance it out. When we started building we knew we wanted our island to be a focal point and have a bright color. We went back and forth between green and blue. After going through what felt like hundreds of paint chips we decided on this blue green shade called Fiji by Sherwin Williams. It felt risky to stray away from the classic kitchen colors but the pay off was so good! #dixieandtwinebungalow
Anyone wanna guess the reason for this big ass smile on my face?! 😃 Besides the fact that it’s Friday!! Duh, that’s a given! #frinally ☺️ And nope, I’m not giving any clues!!! 🤐 #workforit
Okay, okay fine! One clue! Royalty is coming to spend the weekend with me! 👑 #whatcoulditbe .
What do you get for a family who just bought a wonderful new home with a firepit out back? A cozy s’mores kit for all to enjoy! • @leslieloganhill brought me these adorable marshmallow skewers for her clients and I built the basket around them! • I added hot chocolate (with hot toddy fixings for the grownups), cute cups, all the fixings for s’mores, and a cozy new blanket for family snuggles on a crisp spring night! And this basket makes great storage for reuse inside or out. • Quick tip, I repackaged marshmallows In this cute reusable storage container so they might stay a little fresher in case they aren’t all used at once and it can be used in their new pantry again too! • I linked these great skewers in the link in my profile. I love the fun colors and makes it easier for everyone to remember whose is whose too. • I’m so ready for the warmth of spring, but I do love a crisp, cool night! ⭐️🔥🌙 #closinggifts#nashvillerealtor#customgifts
In honor of #nationalpuppyday I want to give a special shout out to @pupbox for being there for me and my mom for my journey through puppyhood! 🐶 I love all the toys and treats and she loves all the great tips and advice 💕 I look forward to getting my box of awesome every month and can’t wait to share these next months and years with you! #puppyforever#pupboxselfie
A cloudy day like today was just begging for some warm banana muffins. I claim my moist banana muffins recipe is the best one around, because it really is. My toddler is currently making "Mmm Mmm Mmm!" noises at the kitchen counter. Search for the recipe on the blog. :)

What an amazing vacation! This week I’ve been able to meet two sweet friends IRL that I’ve met through Instagram! I’m so thankful for this incredible community and to have been a part of it this past year. This week was extra special being able to meet two of my favorite gals!
It’s been so nice to take a breather from the hustle and bustle of every day life but I can’t wait to get home and style all my new vintage finds from this week!
Hey guys! Who needs to start their spring cleaning?!🙋🏼♀️ I know I do! I’ve also have been getting lots of questions about this little dish/hand soap set on my kitchen island. So today in my stories I’m talking about some of my favorite cleaning supplies and kitchen essentials! I have been using @grovecollaborative to order my kitchen hand and dish soaps, as well as other cleaning supplies for about 4 months now! I absolutely love their products (especially the Mrs. Meyers brand of soaps and lotions). I linked my favorite products including this cleaning supply caddy and the soap set from @grovecollaborative in my stories and on the @liketoknow.it app! http://liketk.it/2AD1V #partner#grovepartner#grovehome#liketkit#LTKhome
Current favorite: blueberries. Maybe we can add them to the garden someday if the snow EVER melts.

It’s been quiet around here, a sick baby (RSV, strep, ear infection 😳), working on my website and trying to stay afloat. Just noticed this ray of sunshine through the window tonight and I can just feel that things are going to turn around☀️ #almostspring

If you tell Nash “kiss please” he leans his whole body in and gives you an open mouth goober smooch, it’s the best 💕

Craziest winter in a long time, from insanely cold to tons of snow. Makes for an exciting few weeks working at the middle school, I think I get as excited as the students do about snow days ❄️

When your baby is entertained by the chandelier just long enough to allow you to get dressed 😂
I am no gardening expert but I can say for sure I LOVE hydrangeas in full summer bloom 🌿💕

Every time I clean the boys bathroom I dream about putting ship lap on the walls until I look closer at how dirty it gets- white walls + little boys aiming skills=🙈

We have a few kid free hours before we head out to some bachelor/bachelorette festivities so what do we end up doing? Cleaning the house!

Chris made these adorable "farmhouse" style bunks for the boys new shared room. They were too afraid to sleep alone anyways so we decided they can share until they are older. I love how small spaces bring a family closer 💕

When we first moved in 9 months ago I didn't want to add any curtains since I liked the simple, clean look but I am ready for a change. I can't decide what style curtains to add to the large window. Deciding between white linen, flax colored linen or gray? #firstworldproblems#neutraldecor#diyhome

I guess you could call it a work from home pro OR con- I can't start working until my kitchen is clean!

A year after my last ducklings in the kitchen sink picture we have our 4 new ducklings taking a swim! Be still my heart 💜 .
But on a different note: Today is international women's day and so many amazing women come to mind. None of us would be where we are today if it wasn't for women in our life to guide us, teach us, nurture us, love us, and pray for us. .
I am so grateful to so many for making me who I am today. This year being a woman takes on a whole new meaning for me as I am about to become a mom. Those words themselves sound so scary and surreal to me. However, the thought of raising my own little girl Ava to be loving, kind, independent, God fearing, and so much more is such an awe inspiring thing. .
I want each of you ladies out there to know how important you are. You are enough and perfect just as you are. You were created unique and special unlike anyone else. What you have to offer the world is one of a kind. You are one of a kind. .
Thank you to all of you who have encouraged me and loved me throughout my life. Let's support each other and show our support and love not just today but always. 💜

Today is an exciting Wednesday! I posted on the blog how to create the rock wall of your dreams in your home! So many have asked what kind of rock and what steps we took to creating this old world feel in our new build. Everything, even the materials are linked in the blog - the link is in my bio. Let me know what you think and please keep the suggestions coming on what you would like me to share about our DIY Home Build. 🏡⛏⚙️
