One of things I get asked about the most on social media is "how do you keep indoor plants alive"? I am no master grower, just a pure plant lady at heart. Adding greenery, herbs and plants is the easiest way to bring life to every space and upgrade your Instagram decor game. I love to create functional spaces with touches of greenery and bonus points if said greenery is edible! I am so excited to partner with Scotts Miracle Gro and Bonnie Plants to show you an easy, black-thumb approved way to grow plants and herbs indoors in macrame hangers.
When we bought this house over 4 years ago, the dining room are was one of the spaces we immediately fell in love with. We actually had to remove layers and layers of wallpaper from the 80s and give the floors some TLC to bringing the space back to life. We had the brilliant idea at our house warming, to leave the back wall blank and provided sharpies for all our guests to write a message that will stay with this house forever. Great thought at the time, it was however not smart in the long run. Long story short, those lovely guestbook messages, written in permanent marker, are the hardest things to paint over. We had to do the whole room in a dark grey color so the marks wouldn't bleed through the paint. Fast forward 2 years, I was so tired of this dark corner of our house, I had to lighten it brighten things up! So here we are, a dining room update , minus the light fixture that still needs to go up.

March 23rd 2015 is the day we officially became a family. Kevin and I both grew up in families with pets. I have been a proud cat lady for as long as I can remember.
