A little house-building update: After much deliberation, we’ve decided to continue remodeling our #harvestlanehome for now! 🏡 Although the models we saw were beautiful, there’s something so peaceful about living small — or trying to live small. 🌿 This year, my hope is to donate a whole lot, to love the present rather than always looking toward the future, and of course, to keep traveling for fun!
Tomorrow, Ben and I will be meeting with builders to talk about — hopefully — building a house! 🏡 I’m dreaming of an open-concept farmhouse with vaulted ceilings, and Ben’s only request was windows. “Lots and lots of windows.” 😜
Always stop and smell the roses... or in this case, stop and look up at the ceiling, because it’s so pretty! 😍 Grateful for a final day of winter break with @emilyzugay 👭
Some days, you’re on a roll - and other days, your optometrist extracts two pieces of a contact lens that’s been stuck in your eye for 5 days. 👀🙈
A couple of weekends ago, we threw a vegan Friendsgiving! It was so much fun to create a menu, to prepare new recipes all day long, and to celebrate with friends and family. . I learned tofurkey is not my favorite, but I also learned to make a mean pumpkin pie! I’m hoping to gather up all the recipes we used, for those who might want to try a vegan Friendsgiving of their own... or are just curious about how vegans tackle Thanksgiving! 🦃 #harvestlanehome
Eau Claire, Elkhorn, Delavan, Lake Geneva, Waukesha... and home again! 😴 It was a fun AND filling weekend - and now, I’m so glad to be under a cozy blanket, by our Christmas tree! 🎄
This little corner of our living room is my favorite corner. I searched for the perfect piece to put in this awkward corner... and when I found the blanket ladder from @wayfair and the Turkish blankets from @target - the corner was complete! ❤️ . There are just a few more DIY projects I'm trying to convince Ben of 😜 including plank ceilings in our bedrooms. Fingers crossed! 🙈 #harvestlanehome
Every day, I have to pinch myself, because I can't believe I am a creative entrepreneur! (I can't believe I get to wear jeans and have my hair in a messy bun every day! 😜) . What I love most is creating a home for businesses - and the products and services they offer. There are so many amazing businesses - and business owners - and it's such an honor to serve them at @withgraceandgold. . This week, we are meeting for our yearly goal setting intensive, and it's so hard to believe this is our FOURTH goal setting intensive. Every year is a bigger adventure than the last, and I'm just so grateful!
This weekend, Ben and I cleaned our house from top to bottom to make room for our fall decor. . Then, we made a HUGE mistake by going to @target - where I proceeded to pick out even more fall decor... 😜🙈 . Needless to say, it looks like a fall explosion in our house - but we wouldn't have it any other way! 🍂
