Apple Turnovers

Decorating our home and sharing that journey with you is one of my absolute favorite things to write about on the blog, but I still enjoy cooking and baking so much and miss coming up with recipes that my family loves and I think you will love as well. This year I’ve made it a goal to share more recipe posts on the blog again because as much as we adore looking at pretty spaces, we all have to cook for our families everyday, and I want to start sharing more of my favorite yummy recipes to make your job a little bit easier!

I’ve been going back through some of my earliest posts from over five years ago and decided to bring back some recipes that deserve a little extra spotlight since they were so good the first time around, and I only had about three followers back then to see the recipe originally… lol! These apple turnovers are the tastiest little pastries that are perfect for a sweet breakfast or even dessert. I use frozen puff pastry sheets to make them quickly and easily, and the homemade apple cinnamon filling is absolutely to die for. They bake up nice and puffy and golden in the oven and get a drizzle of vanilla glaze over the top for a little extra sweetness. I think you are going to love these!

DIY Side Table

How to build a simple, inexpensive table that is perfect as an end table or nightstand!

It's not something I talk about on the blog a lot, but if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you probably know that I opened up a little shop here in Indiana this past summer! My first love will always be blogging and sharing our home and decorating ideas here, but opening up a store where I can sell the items I love and use in my own home has been such a dream come true. I love coming up with beautiful, creative displays for the shop and … [Continue reading...]

More Seating in the Living Room

A beautifully bright living room that maximizes space and seating with a stunning sectional sofa for a look that is open, airy and spacious.

A couple weeks ago I was sitting in the living room on my laptop trying to answer emails one night, and I saw a big sale that was going on till midnight. Naturally I got distracted (no surprise there), and the next thing I knew I had ten windows open of different couches that caught my eye and were on major markdown. Since Christmas I've had in my mind that I'd like to play around with the furniture layout in the living room and find a way to add … [Continue reading...]

12 Ways to Style Kitchen Counters

12 beautiful ways to style kitchen counters

Kitchen counters can be fun to decorate, but can also be rather challenging. You want your kitchen to have lots of personality and style without adding items that just take up precious counter space and create visual clutter. Some of us are blessed with large kitchens and plenty of countertop real estate, and some of us are working with smaller kitchens where every inch matters. Either way, you want the accessories you choose to add purpose and … [Continue reading...]

Favorite Gray Paint Colors

The best gray paint colors for interiors - soft grays, bold grays, modern grays, warm beige grays and everything you need to pick the perfect gray paint color!

Have you ever spent weeks picking out a paint color, painted an entire room with it, and then realized you don't like the color? I certainly have been there, and it makes picking out another color even that more daunting. My sister and I were chatting recently about picking out a paint color for her living room, and after looking through dozens of colors, I realized part of the problem is the overwhelming number of options there are. Lots of … [Continue reading...]

A Look Back at 2017

A clean and cozy farmhouse master bedroom with tons of vintage charm

Hello, 2018. It's hard to believe another year has come and gone, and while this one has been full of ups and downs personally, I am so happy with where I'm at today and the possibilities for what the future holds. In a lot of ways when I look back on this year, I feel like I just sort of coasted when it came to the blog. The year prior I wrote and released my first book, which was such a HUGE project for me, and between wanting to slow down a … [Continue reading...]

Christmas Lights at Night

The magic and serenity of Christmas lights at night in this beautiful farmhouse

Here we are just days away from Christmas, and I find myself wanting to savor every moment of families gathering and evenings around the Christmas tree and holiday traditions and the joy on my boys' sweet faces. The holidays can be hectic and at times stressful, but I think there is nothing more peaceful and serene than our little farmhouse all lit up on Christmas Eve waiting for Santa to arrive. The glow of the tree and candles burning all … [Continue reading...]
