Christmas Lights at Night

Christmas is now just around the corner, and today I get to share with you one of my favorite posts of the whole year. Over the last month or so I’ve given you a tour of what our little farmhouse looks like all decorated for Christmas during the day, but we all know that the true magic of the holidays happens at night when it’s all dark in the house except for the glow of Christmas lights on the tree. It’s beautiful and calm and peaceful and gives you a feeling unlike any other time of the year.

I’m so lucky to be part of the Christmas Nights Tour again this year with some amazing bloggers, and if you are just coming from visiting Kristen’s home at Ella Claire Inspired, I welcome you!

See this beautiful farmhouse all lit up at night for Christmas!

My hope for this tour is that you leave feeling the true spirit of Christmas… the quiet moments at home snuggled up by the Christmas tree and singing Christmas carols together and leaving milk and cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve. Here is our quiet, cozy little farmhouse glowing at night with Christmas lights…

A Touch of Farmhouse Charm – Book Release Day!

It was two summers ago when I first got the email from a wonderful publishing company asking if I would be interested in writing a book. I think I read and reread that email forty times just to make sure they didn’t accidentally send it to me by mistake. I’ve always been open to the possibility of taking my ideas beyond this little blog, but did I have what it takes to become an author? I had no idea.

Fast forward a few months to October, and I had successfully negotiated a contract with my publisher and signed on the dotted line. Still unsure of whether I was worthy of such an opportunity, I sat down with a pen and paper and started writing down ideas and making to-do list and marking important deadlines on my calendar. After five crazy months of house projects and kitchen renovations and late night writing sessions and thousands of photos, I turned in my manuscript and said a little prayer that it would all turn out the way I pictured in my head.

Today I am so proud to say that my first book, A Touch of Farmhouse Charm, is now officially released and available for purchase, and it turned out even better than I ever imagined in my wildest dreams. I poured my heart and soul into this 192-page book with 70 brand new home decorating projects, a room-by-room tour of our home, and the story of how we completely renovated this little 1940’s farmhouse. It feels pretty surreal that my book release day is finally here!

Farmhouse Christmas Kitchen + Gingerbread Bundt Cake

The other day I was working on decorating our kitchen a little bit for the holidays, and I realized that this time last year we were still living with our old kitchen and just about to completely tear everything down almost to the studs. It feels like forever since we were living through that month long renovation with construction dust everywhere and eating microwave dinners more times than I want to count, but it is such an amazing feeling to have this beautiful space now, especially around the holidays.

I’ve been doing a ton of baking in here lately, and I have an amazing Gingerbread Bundt Cake recipe that I want to share with you today. It is so simple to whip up and makes a beautiful centerpiece for your holiday table with very little effort! But first, let’s take a little tour around the kitchen…

Farmhouse Christmas Entryway

So many changes have been made to our little farmhouse since last Christmas, and it’s been both a challenge and a joy to have a new, fresh space to decorate this year for the holidays. One of my favorite little areas in our home is the entryway, complete with an antique armoire and mirror, coat hooks and a sweet, little bench, and the front door of my dreams. I recently partnered with Gordmans to create a festive, yet simple entryway for the holidays, and I am so excited to show you how this space turned out!
