    Hi friends,

    Hope you are doing well! Today I am finally sharing our complete dining room reveal plus our spring tablescape.

We loved being able to display our fine china and my antique tea set collection. Today on the blog I am sharing how we decorated our dining room for spring and our spring table setting.

    CHINA HUTCH Makeover DIY

    Hi friends,

    Hope you are doing well! Today I am sharing a fun home project we did during quarantine, our china hutch makeover DIY. My dad pasted down to me his grandma’s old china hutch for my dining room. I’ve always loved the quality of antiques and older furniture especially when they have family history. This beautiful hutch has been in the family for over three generations and was still in great condition. I had been on a hunt for a year now for a china hutch that also doubled as a buffet/server for my dining room. When my dad showed me this beautiful piece that had been stowed in the garage for years now, I knew this was the one. It was a little outdated and didn’t fit my overall interior decor, so I decided to give it a little makeover. Check out our china hutch makeover DIY below!

    10 Outdoor Activities to Do With Your Family During Quarantine

    Hi friends,

    Hope you are doing well! So much has happened in the past couple weeks. With the coronavirus spreading, a lot has changed in our social life. Jayden is out of school for a month, things have closed down, travel plans postponed, and we have been doing our part to practice social distancing. As crazy as it’s been I’m just thankful to have my family together through it all. With Jayden being out of school, we’ve really been taking it easy and taking it day by day. There has been days where we have stayed in and watch movies all day. But I know I don’t want to be inside for a whole month straight, and luckily we don’t have to. Today on the blog I am sharing ten outdoor activities you can do with your family during quarantine while practicing social distancing.

So today I thought it would be fun to give you an inside look of the reality of it all and tips on how to get your husband to take professional photos. For laughs read more below!
