Visiting The Cotswolds...



A few weeks ago, our little family of five traveled to Sweden (see that post here), and then from Stockholm, on to London, England. We loved exploring the city for a few days, and then journeyed out into the English countryside. We visited stunning Oxford with all its amazing history and architecture, the home of one of our family's favorite authors - C.S. Lewis, and then made our way to the village of Bibury in the Cotswolds...

Lavender Season!

It's that time of year! The bees are busy... And you'll find me gazing at the lavender in the yard wondering how long I can keep it growing - because it's beautiful and I love the scent - or if I need to harvest it for drying.

Sundays at Home {Link Party}



After two weeks of traveling to Sweden and England, it feels good to be home! 

Gathering eggs from the coop for pancakes this morning felt like a welcoming task after being away. And I've almost gotten us caught up on laundry, but are we ever really? That basket will be full again tonight... :)

What are you up to this weekend? Getting caught up, rested up, or having fun I hope!

Our Home Away From Home In Sweden...



Hi Friends ~ I've missed you! It's been quiet here on the blog because our family had a last-minute opportunity to go to Europe for a couple of weeks, and just returned yesterday. Our three sons and I accompanied my husband on a business trip to beautiful Stockholm, Sweden for a week, and then spent the following week on vacation in England. It was a really special time exploring more of the world together and making lots of memories.

I wanted to share "our" apartment in Stockholm with you. We found it through Airbnb and couldn't have been more happy with it! The apartment building was built in the 1800's and has loads of historic charm... tall ceilings, windows and doors, beautiful hardwood floors and lots of wide molding...

Farmhouse Decorating for the 4th of July!

Ah, summer! Those lazy, what-should-we-do-today, sun-drenched days. Time at the lake, get togethers with friends outdoors, picking berries, going to the fair, family vacations... there's just so much to love about summer!

Sundays at Home {Link Party}



Welcome back to Sundays at Home! It's been a really busy stretch at our home... within five days time, we celebrate our youngest son's birthday, Father's Day and my husband's birthday. We are also prepping for a last-minute trip across the pond (I can't wait to share more with you soon!). We were early (so unlike us) for our appointment at the passport agency a few days ago, so we headed over to The London Plane for coffee and a snack. If you are ever visiting Seattle, you'll want to put this restaurant/flower shop on your list of places to go. Just look at these peonies!

A New Barn Light!

Some product was received in exchange for promotion. All opinions are my own.

I'm excited to share our new barn light with you! Barn lights are now popular to use in the interior or on the exterior of homes. However, this barn light is actually for our barn (though it would look great almost anywhere!). We selected the Hollywood Bowl light from Steel Lighting Co. because of its large size and unique look. Our barn is really well constructed and I'm so grateful for it. However, I've been wanting to add a little personality to the outside of it for awhile. The new light helps add character and is a great upgrade from the previous flood lights!

Sundays at Home {Link Party}



Welcome back to Sundays at Home! So happy to have you here to either browse through the inspiring home decor posts below and/or link up your recent posts.

Our kids just finished up their last week of school so we are officially on summer break! Now if only we can get the weather to cooperate. It turned cool here again in Seattle and is raining as I type... so it kind of feels like we should be heading to the pumpkin patch, not the pool. So if you're in a warmer climate, please send us some of your sunshine!

A Farmhouse Blog Post Round-Up: Part One

I can't be the only one who feels like 2018 just started? And here we are in June

I want to take a moment to thank you for reading my blog. It's been five years since we moved here to our little farmstead, and four years since I started blogging. Sharing with you here has made this journey even sweeter. I've been blessed to connect with many of you over a shared love of farmhouse style decorating, mini farm living, animals and gardening. I always love hearing what you're up to, so please feel free to comment and I'll do my best to get back to you.


Today I thought I'd begin a round-up of posts this year to date, in case you missed them the first time around. Just click on the image or the link beneath to read the full post...
