a lovely living

Striped Button-up

Well guys, I’m still determined to fight off this cold weather. The wind hasn’t helped though, Jack kept telling me, “there’s nothing I can do about your Dennis the Menace hair.” So, for now, we roll with it! If you’re considering a new jacket this spring, keep pink in consideration! There are so many cute […]

Back Around

With one week left until Easter, that leaves me (and a few of you) with one more week to follow through with my (our) no shopping sacrifice. I won’t lie, I have a few online carts filled, but I’ve also fallen into somewhat of a groove. My ban has lifted any sense of urgency with […]

Simply Stunning Renovation

Hi guys! I’m excited to share with you another design project that I was fortunate to be a part of today. This home was a major renovation that actually wrapped up toward the end of last year. The couple has now lived in their ‘new’ home for a few months and have begun to settle […]


Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. We had a really nice family day on Saturday and then yesterday I was able to catch up with a couple of my college girlfriends. We all agreed that we haven’t changed at all in appearance in the 16 years that we’ve known each other ;) […]

Spring Sneaks

If there were such a thing as too many options, that may soon be the case when it comes to adorable sneakers. And I do mean adorable because many of these are almost too cute to wear! In addition to your basic everyday Converse, you could also grab some pretty pink Keds. I know I […]

Turkey Meatball Stroganoff

It’s been a while since I’ve shared any recipes on here. Part of this is because it’s been pitch black outside come dinner time making it nearly impossible to shoot anything I’ve cooked up. Another part of the reason was because I wasn’t feeling very authentic sharing recipes because they obviously aren’t mine. But the […]


I hope your week is off to a great start! How’s everyone handling the time change? I feel for those of you with little ones! We’ve started off ok, but I know it’ll be hitting us by mid-week. Our kids are back to school again after spring break last week and I’m looking forward to […]

Striped Henley

Hello Friday! My kids are home on spring break this week and although we’ve had some fun, it’s also been a week. After wrapping up pinkeye last week, we’ve been working through an ear infection as well as some nasty coughs and colds. Jack and Audrey are my two that always end up with incessant […]

Easter Inspiration

Good news! Spring is on the horizon and Easter is just behind it! Meanwhile, it continues to snow outside my window. Regardless, I’ve been breaking out some bring decor to brighten the place up. I like adding pieces that will last throughout springtime, not only through Easter. Towels are the easiest thing to change up, […]

Eyelet Peplum

With my Love Language being gifts (we discuss that further here), my husband will every so often take it upon himself to hunt down something I’ve had my eye on. My style board on Pinterest is a pretty good place to start! Knowing that I’d given up apparel shopping for the season of Lent, he […]
