Soccer & Stacy Ann Photography

Ahhhh, soccer season has begun! Our family is very into sports. Whether we are playing them, watching them or cheering them on…we love it! Soccer is my daughter’s passion. She has been playing for a few years now, and is always looking for a new skill to master or or camp to attend to have fun. She definitely is a little inspiration on the field and a team player.



I fell in LOVE with this photo as soon as my sister sent it to me. If you have not already, you should head over to Stacy Ann Photography on Facebook and check out her work. She truly does amazing work, and if you are local, she is the photographer to hire for your family photos. Don’t forget to stop by her website, ( either…you will absolutely love her photos.

Until next time…

Curtain Love


I absolutely love my curtains. Love them! However, I kept feeling like they needed something…an extra pop. I researched and probably checked out every single blog to get a little inspiration. Finally…I found it. On Better Homes and Gardens, I saw how they were putting two different curtain panels on the same rod. In the article, it stated that you could either do two sets of curtains that matched, or do a contrast to give you that extra pop. The end result…love. It seriously makes the room!!!


Paired with my jute rug and 2 chairs, it looks amazing! Now before I reveal the entire look together, I’m looking to double up the rugs. I will share the entire look once this is complete! What do you think of the two curtains together?

Come on Spring!

Other than warmer weather, the best part of Spring is being able to start my outdoor garden. I love gardening! However, during the winter months, you can also keep an indoor garden. All you need are a few hearty plants, a few cute pots, and you are good to go!
