My Laundry Room’s Magnolia Makeover

I’m so happy to present our pretty new laundry room that we build with our own hands, and well, technically my dad’s hands too because he helped us hang the cabinets.

Weekly Look | Vintage Beach Vibes

My sister and I are trying to come up with some ideas for a girls trip later this year.  Maybe Italy?

Hello Mr. Rabbit

We had lots of bunny rabbit shenanigans over the last week getting ready for Easter, and we didn't even have to leave Winter Garden.

Lake Como 101

Quite simply, Lake Como is my favorite place on earth. There is no way words can capture the breathtaking moment when you drive over the pass and gaze down at the sun sparkling off the lake like glitter, gently highlighting an ethereal mist hovering over the valley.
