Our home tour continues and today we venture upstairs! I’ve never lived anywhere that had more than one story before so having all this space to fill has been fun and challenging. The decor for our guest room was based around some pieces my aunt gave us. She is an interior decorator near Athens, GA… Continue reading Guest Room
I always love hearing about the things people are enjoying in their home and life. Here’s what’s making my life a little sweeter these days: DW Brand Candles: I find these candles at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s, but you can also purchase them from their website.

Our living room, like in most homes, is the first room you see when you visit our house. It’s also one of the smallest rooms I’ve ever seen.

I’ve been inspired by my friend Lucy to start posting some of my favorite things on Fridays.

Lewis When I was in high school, one of the girls in our youth group lost her father in a tragic accident. Michael and… Continue reading The Freedom to Grieve
It doesn’t happen when it’s raining. It happens on a gorgeous fall day when the bright sunshine and the birdsongs seem almost insensitive. Tragedy strikes and it’s unthinkable.
