Good Morning!  I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!  Do you have a favorite photo that holds a special meaning or memory for you?  I love how a single picture can capture life's special memories and help us remember a moment in time.  It's a wonderful way to help recall our life stories and celebrations.  Once you press that little button, that precise moment is captured and it can never be captured again.  Reminiscing with pictures brings me such comfort and joy, so I partnered with Easy Canvas Prints to turn one of my favorite photos into a beautiful canvas.

When I look at photographs, I'm transported back to that time the picture was taken and I become emerged in whatever the event, people, or feelings that are associated with the photograph.  For my beautiful 16 x 20 canvas I choose this family picture we took a couple of years ago that I actually used as our family Christmas card, but never framed.  I've always loved how this picture captured my children playing together with us watching over in the background.  I'm so happy to finally have it displayed in my home.  And I absolutely love how it has not only transformed this little nook, but how it has added a personal touch to our home.

And now some fun for you guys!  Easy Canvas Prints has generously offered to give a free canvas print to one of you!  So, check back next week for the giveaway...

Enjoy you day!

Good Morning and YAY for Friday!  My husband has been out of town this week, so it's been just me and kids the past few days, so I'm extra ready for weekend!  My kids are really pretty easy, it's just juggling the after school activities that gets a bit tricky when he's gone, but thank goodness for great friends that graciously help out!


 Just popping in to share these three transitional Summer to Fall clothing pieces that I just adore.  All really basic pieces that will fit most casual occasions and most importantly...all very affordable!  Are you ready for Fall, or are you hanging on to summer as long as you can?


Have a great weekend!

I'm a bit obsessed when it comes to lighting and this pendant collection from Serena and Lily is stunning!  I think that lighting is a bit like a piece of jewelry in a room, adding just the right finishing touch to really create a stylish space.  The right light can not only illuminate a room with the perfect glow, but add texture and dimension to it's design.  From timeless, to lush and glamorous, I would be more than happy to hang any of these beauties in my home!  Which is your favorite?


Have a beautiful day!
