Autumn

It's here! It's here! It's really here!


Ok, I have been going on endlessly about Fall for so long that you all knew this was coming.

In honor of the official start of all things pumpkins, I am busting out old and new copies of my Fall magazines for inspiration and my box of Fall decor and browsing the internet for ideas as well.




We have been blessed with beautiful fall weather here today, cool and overcast, which makes it even better to do all things Fall-ish.

I have been simmering a creamy vegetable chowder with bacon since ten a.m. I just had my first bowl for lunch. The five year old told me it was "the best fall soup". Yes, I am starting them young.

Also rising on the counter right now is Mom's Homemade Bread. My mouth is already watering.

And just for fun here, are some other ladies from around the web who are just as excited about Fall as I am!

Grab a cup of apple cider, a warm muffin and a cable knit throw. Wrap up and click around for some fall inspir…

One Year Ago Today

Today I looked back on the blog to see what was happening around this time. As luck would have it, I actually posted this exactly one year ago. It's hard to believe that was a year ago.

I know everyone says that. Especially when you are in the thick of things, and it is overwhelming and you are stressed out, people will tell you, "Soon you'll look back and this will all be a memory." And at the time, you kind of want to punch them in the face and say, "Yeah, well right now this sucks."


That's not just me, is it?

Anyways, people said that to me a lot. And I didn't punch them in the face, I plodded ahead, knowing that someday they would be right.

And now, here I am, a year later. A lot wiser, on the home building front, a little wiser on taking things one day at a time, and none the wiser atkeeping up on laundry



One year ago today we finished excavating the basement. I was in the middle of scheduling the house movers and con…

Time for a Slow Down and a Party

We have been in Lucky for nearly eight months now! It has been amazing. The functionality and practicality of this house is wonderful.


Remember back here, when I said I was working on before and after updates? Yeah, I'm still working on that. I am hovering in the last remaining days of summer craziness, but I can smell the slow down coming. Autumn skies and temperatures are popping in to remind me that summer will soon slip away.


The Hubs has been wanting to do an open house for quite sometime. Our way of saying thank you to all those who helped make this home a possibility, and also for a chance to invite over all the friends and family that have been asking what are you guys up to in that house?!

The thing is, I keep dragging my feet. I always tell people I have an open door policy, if they can step over the toys, they are welcome anytime to come see us or the house! And I truly mean it.


But an open house? It seems so formal. It brings all the unfinished projects that I live w…
