City House: Lacey’s Room

Dear Friends, I wanted to start the week off with a bang!  Home decor posts have been nonexistent since we moved.  I’m more than ready to share what we have been doing around here.  Thankfully, I have plenty of material for the blog moving forward. Lacey’s room is coming along nicely so I thought I’d […]

Beach House Cottage Part II

Dear Friends, Here it is Thursday and I’m still daydreaming about last week’s beach vacation.  You know you had a good time when you  are already thinking about next year.  At least we may only have to wait ten months instead of a year, assuming we go back to our June dates. Hey, what can […]

Beach House Cottage Part I

Dear Friends, Last week was beach week for us.  We waited all summer to take our vacation but the end result was worth it!  We are usually June beach-goers, but the whole moving thing threw our typical plans out the window.  I’m so glad we planned ahead for August and didn’t skip out on a family week […]

Space Challenge: The Dining Room

Dear Friends, Several years ago, we made a large addition to our family that we have not once regretted.  She is a beautiful baby grand piano that came from Mr. C’s grandmother.  At the time, we had an empty living room with plenty of space for the curvy Mrs. Steinway.  Yes, she is the real deal […]

New House: Paint Colors

Dear Friends, One of the first things we did before moving into our new place was paint.  Or have it painted I should say.  Mr. C does not particularly enjoy painting and after all of the painting we did to sell our house, I was quite alright with hiring professionals.   Our paint guy, Oscar, […]

New House: Kitchen Lighting

Dear Friends, Thank you for all of the kind comments about our new house!  We are nearly settled and are no longer second guessing the decision to relocate.  Dreams are ever-changing and we are embracing our new abode.  I thought for sure I would live all of my days in our handsome craftsman cottage but […]

New House Tour

Dear Friends, I’ve made you wait long enough.  I’ve finally got a full tour of the new house.  These photos are from the original house listing so you can see it staged for selling by the previous owners.  Once you have the lay of the land, we will start with a “where we are + […]

Lucky Seven

Dear Friends, Lacey turned seven over the weekend.  I’m a little startled by it to be honest.  Clearly, I knew it was coming but something about seven just seems old.  She is suddenly tall and in the span of a week has lost her two front teeth.   I guess cursive and multiplication will be around the […]

Final House Tour

Dear Friends, I have so much to share that finding a beginning is overwhelming.  I figured I’d wrap up with the old house and share some MLS pictures.  Keep in mind that real estate pictures and blogging pictures are not one and the same.  Bloggers want magazine-style pictures.  Forget your flash and lamps are a […]

New Beginnings

Dear Friends, I am in fact alive and still here on Earth.  I took a blogging hiatus without really intending to.  It turns out moving combined with the end of the school year was far too much to handle and everything peripheral fell to the wayside.  We were so busy and crazed that I honestly […]
