a beautiful love gift

Love is officially in the air.  I can’t believe Valentine’s Day is next week!  Wanted to mention a little treasure I found while working on an upcoming post with one of my favorite online boutiques, Huff Harrington Home.


If you have a partner who needs a little help finding your V-day gift, this is a great idea:  a gift package that includes a gorgeous necklace, piece of art, and tea towel.  I love everything about this grouping – which I can’t always say about a “package deal.”  Usually there’s something in it that’s a dud, ha.  Not the case here.

dreamy white

Happy February!  We made it through what always feels like the longest month of the year to me, and now spring is just around the corner.  It’s felt like spring here all week – I’ve noticed trees blooming and even our little hen is sitting on her first batch of eggs that may become chicks!  She only has two eggs, but that’s perfect for our small flock.  More on that soon.

Since we missed Wednesday, I found some inspiring white to kick off your weekend.

This is the home of talented entrepreneur, blogger, and intagrammer, Maria, a mother of five who lives on a horse ranch with her cowboy husband.  FUN!  Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy her french, white-inspired home, barn, horses, and chicken.  Good stuff.

one word

A while ago I pinned a pretty quote that had the word hope in it.  This word has been on my mind a lot lately.  I think hope drives us every day, whether it’s regarding something minuscule or something grand.  Hope is always in the forefront of our minds, even when things don’t happen exactly when we need or want them to.  Most of the time it’s hope that gives us the guts to take that chance or fight for something worthwhile.

stripes, schedules, and managing stress

Well if that isn’t a blog title to pull you right in, ha.  Sorry for the silence, it’s been a wild week.  Lots of good things going on, but I haven’t had a moment to sit down and think, much less write.  Maybe you’re feeling the same busyness in your life right now.  Last night I had to put on my p.j.’s and crawl into bed before everyone else so I could function properly today.  Some weeks I’m just like “okay, how much more can we cram into the schedule?”  Nobody’s fault of course, but things always seem to hit in waves.  That being said, I thought it would be helpful to write a post on my favorite tips to managing a busy schedule until I realized I’ve already written about that AND my favorite ways to manage stress.  Funny.  If you didn’t get read these tips before, I’ll link them at the bottom of this post.

Before rushing off to my next adventure, I leave you with a few pretty things and some inspiration.  If I could teleport myself anywhere right now, it would be to this Greek Island villa.  More pics, tour, and all the to-die-for vacay deets here.  I just read it and almost passed out.  LOVE everything.  This scene, in particular, is so inspiring.
