1.) Discover how, by using these design ideas, you can seamlessly blend modern farmhouse decor into your home. Learn key tips and tricks for selecting furniture, accessories, and color palettes. 

2.) If you need some new kitchen gadgets, or are just looking for items that will make your life easier, click HERE, and then click the Kitchen Favorites button.

3.) FAVORITE QUOTE: “There is no need to rush. What’s meant for you always arrives on time.” ~Found HERE.

4.) BEAUTIFUL INSPIRATION: this collection of the cutest cottages I’ve ever seen, and the arched doorway in this cottage is just the beginning of its many charming details.

5.) Comfort food is always in season, so I updated this recipe for Homemade Baked Macaroni and Cheese. It’s easy, so good, makes an amazing main course, but it’s also the perfect side dish.


7.) YOUTUBE RECIPE VIDEOS: if you need some inspiration for meal planning, take a look at Ree Drummond’s top 5 casserole recipes. Find more inspiration from Ina Garten’s 5 favorite recipes, including her chicken piccata and chocolate cake. I make my own version of her garlic roasted potatoes and they are a family favorite! (Pictured above.)

8.) One more cottage tour that features both the inside and outside of this lovely home. The homeowners embrace a neutral palette that will sweep you off your feet, the style is timeless, and the rooms showcase a collection of carefully curated pieces that add coziness and personality.

9.) When was the last time you baked muffins? If the urge to head to the kitchen and bake comes over you, try making this banana bread recipe into muffins, if you want something a bit healthier, try these delicious bran muffins. Both recipes are easy and quick!

10.) Even though we have had buckets and buckets of rain, we just had two beautiful days in a row. I was able to clean our front porch, and get it all decorated for the summer months. It’s understated and very simple, and I’ll be sharing the details on Sunday. If you aren’t on my email list, click HERE to join in the fun. XO
