Home…

our happy place.  Traditions, warmth and welcome.

Home is a feeling. It radiates fond memories of countless holidays, birthdays, milestone celebrations and after school projects.  It’s also simply seeing the beauty in the everyday.  It’s where your stories are written, the place where you belong.

Each season brings with it celebrations, holidays, weather – all playing a vital role as to how we live and play.  So many can relate to the feeling of cold weather coming upon us in Autumn.  Long cooked winter meals, football and a crackling hearth.  Shortened days, the rustle of leaves, the scent of candles burning inside a jack-o-lantern.  The sounds, smells and tastes that all come together to create a feeling.  This is your home, your good life.

I would like to share with you my ways to make each day a celebration, make the ordinary extraordinary, and how to be organized and efficient and enjoy living for the moment.

I extend my invitation to you to come inside and experience home…Welcome!


Month to Month Inspiration

May 2019

Welcome to May! As I write this, a bird is singing persistently outside. I know it is trying to attract it’s mate and start the endless life cycle. Nature at its’ finest.  I love all the seasons, but something about those early mornings (if you’re a morning person, I suppose), the exuberant bird song and smell of the earth re-awakening makes me stop and take a deep breath and marvel at the yearly re-birth.  It also makes me want to slow down time a bit. Take it all in. Spring, like Autumn, can be so fleeting.  Blossom, so eagerly awaited, gone so quickly, yet always so appreciated.  Life goes swiftly, I find myself saying this more and more often.  Seems so cliché, but facts cannot be denied. My injury has forced me to slow down, and in some strange way, I am learning to embrace it. I am typically an over motivated personality – type A, but learning to accept what was dealt my way  is another life re-set (again!! I’ve had several).  And on we go, like the little bird singing outside my window, persistence and acceptance prevail.  So, like myself, try to slow down here and there.  Enjoy the simple beauty of a quiet moment, the rustle of the just emerged leaves in a gentle breeze and the simple song of a little bird.


Some of my pics for summer fun and entertaining!  I’m loving the porcelain pelicans and may need them!  I’m picturing the pair as a fabulous dining centerpiece.  All these items are on The Hive Shop.

I love the easy breezy-ness of summer style and entertaining!  I have new posts for fun summer fashion and accessories, my favorite the new customizable lipstick cases by @guerlain.  Check them out under “Style”.
