Now that we have the first floor of our home in working order, it’s fun to have people over for dinner. I love entertaining during all four seasons, but Fall feels especially cozy and fun. I put together a table centerpiece for my “Fall Dining + Hearth Room” post earlier this week, and was feeling inspired to finish the rest of the table. I actually changed that centerpiece around (and added a lot more to it) for this tablescape and…

Fall Dining + Hearth Room

Ever since we moved into our house, I have been looking forward to decorating for Fall. Last year, though, we were super busy renovating nonstop before baby Henry was born, and I didn’t have a chance to decorate at all.

I had been looking everywhere for stylish, functional bibs that he couldn’t rip off immediately after I put them on. But I wasn’t having much luck. So when HappyBebe offered to send me some of their bibs to try…

Basement Remodel: Before

Man Cave: Before via Life on Shady Lane Blog

Happy Labor Day, friends! I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend. Even the long weekends never seem long enough, do they? There are a few rooms in our home that I have never taken ANY photos of, which means that I have never posted about them on the blog. When we moved in, we were in a hurry to get our first floor into a livable state before Henry was born and since then, we have been focused on continuing to…
