A California Cottage Home Tour...


I hope your summer is going well! Just stopping in today to share a sweet little California cottage with you. Our family recently had the pleasure of staying in this home while visiting the San Francisco Bay Area. 

This Airbnb cottage is located in Alamo, California - the same town I kept my horse while growing up, and just one town over from Walnut Creek, where my family lived.

Sundays at Home #163


Hello there, and welcome to Sundays at Home! We just returned from a family vacation to northern California. We were blessed with beautiful weather as we visited the beach, San Francisco, Napa Valley, and Walnut Creek - where I grew up. It was incredible to see how things have grown and changed ("my little town" is not so little anymore), yet comforting to see how much has stayed the same.

I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend... And now, let's party!

Farmhouse Living: Let's Head Outdoors

Hi Friends,

I hope you're enjoying the weekend! We just returned from a week in California and Oregon. It was such a fun time, kicking off summer together as a family. And now, it feels so good to be home!

While I unpack and get the laundry started, I thought I'd share some recent pictures from around our little farmstead...


Before our hops was in bloom, I used a strand of faux greenery to freshen up the grapevine wreath on the weathered chicken coop door. I love how it stays green. ;)

Sundays at Home #162



Welcome to Sundays at Home! 

We are happy to announce that Kristy, author of Starfish Cottage, will be joining us as our new co-host! The beautiful, airy dining room (pictured above) is just one of the many gorgeous areas in Kristy's home. Her cottage is located in Southwest Florida on a saltwater canal (dreamy, right?). 

Kristy's blog highlights her passion for decorating, cooking, gardening, and the coastal lifestyle. She also shares her family's personal adoption story, and let me warn you... you won't be able to stop reading! You'll quickly find that the beautiful home you see is a reflection of Kristy's heart. You can learn more about Kristy and Starfish Cottage here.

Farmhouse Inspiration Roundup... (Home Decor, Favors, and More!)




It's hard to believe it's the last week of school before our summer vacation begins!

While we are all very excited, I always get sentimental this time of year. Our oldest son will soon be an eighth-grader with just one more year until high school! (What?Our middle son will be all done with his elementary years and will be heading to middle school (6th grade) this fall. (Totally unbelievable because he can't be older than six...at least that's how it feels to me.) Our youngest son will be in second grade (And because he's our little caboose, I can't help but think, "We will never do first grade again...").

And if you're new here, that's right. We have three sons. And white slipcovers. 
While bolstering the bleach industry, it can be done!

Anyway, since I'm in a nostalgic mood, I thought we could reminisce over some highlights of the past month here on the blog. Just in case you missed anything...

Sundays at Home #161


I hope June has found you well... 

We just wrapped up our youngest son's 8th birthday party, and I don't think one of those soldiers, clad in camouflage, noticed the pretty white wisteria hanging in the garden. (Unless they lost their nerf bullets in it. ;) So I thought I'd share it with you.

We Should Be Friends {Farmhouse Living}

"If your mind's as cluttered as your kitchen sink...
Well then, we should be friends."

~ Miranda Lambert

Anyone else having one of those weeks? We should be friends.

And to slow down the crazy train (aka life with kids ;) I thought I'd share some peaceful pictures from our little coop. Our three ducks recently moved in with the chickens (who aren't impressed), and you won't believe how big they've gotten!
