DIY: Wine Cork Ball

- Projects + Inspiration

This project actually makes me laugh because it has been in the works for an embarrassingly long amount of time. Like, I’m talking…about three years. But not because it required a lot of wine drinking – that was the easy part. ;) It’s just that I would work on it for a while and then put it away with the intention of coming back to it a day or two later, only to forget about it altogether and let it sit…

A Modern Farmhouse Door Makeover

- Projects + Inspiration

Our home is finally getting to the point that little cosmetic projects seem do-able. When we first moved in, there was SO much that needed to be done that it was difficult to ever imagine being at this point…but here we are! I had been considering painting our doors for quite a while, but projects like that seemed, at one point, reserved for some day in “the future” when things calmed down a little. I guess Henry’s long nap that day…

Summer Berry Salad

- Food + Drink, Salads

One of my (many) favorite things about Summer is all of the fruit that’s in-season, and so when a little warm weather hit yesterday, I wanted to make a really good salad with a bunch of berries in it. As a vegetarian, I…

My Favorite IKEA Items

- Projects + Inspiration

I will admit, I was a little (ok, a lot) behind when it came to jumping on the IKEA train. But that’s only because we didn’t have one in my city for a looong time. Then, when they finally built one I was living in Las Vegas. So when we moved back to the midwest, I made a trip as soon as I could. The place is overwhelming. They sell so much STUFF and the way they set everything up makes…

Almost-Vegan Chickpea Salad

- Food + Drink, Main Dish, Salads, Side Dishes

I’ve been in a little bit of a dinner rut again, so before I bought groceries this week I decided to check out Pinterest for a little inspiration. I’m always in search of high-protein vegetarian meal options, so when I found this recipe for Mashed Chickpea Salad, I knew I had to try it out. I put my own twist on the original recipe, and it turned out so good. Brandon even liked it! I’m calling it “almost-vegan” because I added…
