It’s not too often that the exterior of a home will find its way inside, but that’s exactly what we did with this house! The whitewashed stonework that welcomes you as you approach the house from the outside is the same stonework used on all three of the interior dining room walls. These walls remain modern and bright, but give a nod to original home building techniques. Did you know that the oldest preserved stone house is believed to be the Knap of Howar in Scotland, and is almost 6,000 years old!

Really hoping for some rainbows after this LA rain! 💦☔️🌈 Also- what kinda JERK serves up a tiny piece of Pesto Gouda like that?!? I made this board a couple years back and split up the cheese between two boards... Every time I look at this photo, I think about that little piece of green cheese being such a joke! I’m not sure why I didn’t just buy double the cheese!?! Does it bother you too? Or are the other pieces of the “rainbow” distracting enough? I just might need to start a series where I post old cheese boards and talk about what I would do differently now. 🤔 #AintTooProudToCheese
I’m pretty sure my mom knew what she was doing when she started calling me Kale when I was young. I’ve been obsessed with green & learning the process of caring for something at a young age. My plant obsession didn’t become real until I got sick in 2012 & it’s grown since. At the time I was living somewhere much colder & started from scratch. I spent a lot of time at home teaching myself how to care for these live friends & spent lots of hours in my little ole basement kitchen learning new recipes & readjusting to my new lifestyle to heal. I picked up new hobbies & instantly new that this would lead to a bigger passion. When someone says you’re, "turning over a new leaf," it’s an expression that’s referring to PAGES in a book. When we turn over a new leaf it means the next one is a blank page so you can begin again. Fresh. That weed becomes a new little friend that you now see as beautiful. Your blank page isn’t a bad thing. It’s your time. A breakup, like me? Turn over a new leaf, friend & start again. I’ve had to fight for these guys & they represent so much of my life. I’m thankful for that. Your turn.
Turn your leaf.
Time to heal.
Time to grow.

A couple months ago I started working with a wonderful (and extraordinarily patient) local printer here in Brevard to create a series of six botanical prints on watercolor paper. 💙 They turned out beautifully, and each one is signed and titled by hand. If you are one of the people who has been curious about these, they’re available on my website!
Remember when we changed it up and made our own table skirts for our nightstands? Though we didn't ultimately keep it that way, it feels so bright and cheery, and I am thinking we may need a skirted table at the top of our stair landing! #thehappytudor
A moment I want to remember ❤️ ....a late night run to @target for diapers and storage bins because #mariekondo.... but as I came around the corner I caught him singing to her in the middle of the aisle and as I approached I could hear her cooing back and giving him big smiles. Oh my heart! #momentssquared
I’ve written and deleted three captions so I guess it’s not meant to be..😆 I’ll just see ya on the flip side tomorrow! 🤘🏻Sleep well friends!

Finally my STEP BY STEP Guide to Refinishing Old Pine floors to get rid of the orange!
It works with new pine tooooooo, so. Yay! Honestly I lived with my horrendously orange pine floors for almost 20 years before I finally sat down, did a LOT of research and figured it out. 🔨
Since doing stuff is what I do ... I finished them myself and have tips on how to do it and (most importantly) what product to use! Hint ... you should use @bona_canada if you're in Canada or @bonafloorcare in the US. NOT a sponsored post, just letting you know because I get asked about my floors so often. :) If you have orange floors ... click on the link in my profile!
I get questions about my cutting boards all the time SO I thought I would spill the details on them!! I don’t actually use them for a cutting board 🙈, but use them as hot plates for dishes I pull off the stove. They are perfect and one can usually hold a whole dinners worth of pans! I found most of them while shopping at a local @socentraltx_vintagemarketdays...and 1 is from the @thefinderywaco (tagged in picture). Today while shopping at @hobbylobby I found some cute ones that could be an option ➡️ to my stories to see them! .
Yay or nay to cabinet clutter?! I walk a fine line and lean towards less is more, with my counters. One thing that doesn’t ever get removed is my recipe binder from @heartofthefarmplanner!! I love it and use it nearly daily!

Between this cold rainy weather and the jet lag, all I can think about is crawling into this cozy bed. Do you think our client would mind if I snuggled?? Nah, she wouldn’t mind. 😘

W A R M T H || it’s what I crave on these cold rainy days. Give me all the warm, cozy vibes with layers upon layers of throw blankets and pillows and then top it off with soft golden candlelight and a crackling fire. And then crank the heater waaaay up, make a cup of scalding hot jasmine green tea and put on fifteen layers of clothes because I’m cold. Always cold.
Be sure to download the 👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼 LIKEtoKNOW.it app to shop some of my favorite cozy pieces I used to create this space along with a haul of some really great pillows (some I already own and some I might be adding!) for all of my neutral loving friends! ♥️

I bought myself some flowers today just because. Gotta love good old Trader Joe’s—eucalyptus, hypericum berries & gerberas all for $11.
As promised, Nevaeh’s birth story ||
Magic & luck or divine promises & miracles? I believe there are no coincidences so I don’t believe in luck. Roy & I have believed this our entire relationship the past 17 yrs. Starting with how we first met. We even had the quote on our wedding favors. Since first married, Roy has seen 11:11 A.m. & p.m. almost daily. We have gotten in the fun little habit every time we see it to called out 1111! Or, text each other 1111 since it has become a message to each other saying “I love you, thinking about you.” As I have briefly shared before, we’ve not been able to have children & also have faced several failed adoptions along the way. Several years ago my bro-in-law had been praying for us & the verse Hebrews 11:11 came to him for us “It was by faith that even Sarah was able to have a child, though she was barren and was too old. She believed that God would keep his promise.” We held onto that promise very close to our hearts & found peace & hope for whatever God had for our future, however it would look.
Jumping forward to the day our daughter was born three weeks ago yesterday! We anxiously waited in the waiting room of the hospital as we received text updates from our lawyer. Time moved so slowly & I grew more & more nervous & excited. I kept looking at my phone for updates. I checked the time at one point & it was 10:58 AM, I looked up with sheer wonder & excitement in my eyes and said to my family & friends who were with us “Guys! Wouldn’t that be so cool of God to allow Nevaeh to be born at 11:11 AM?!?! Excitement in the room burst through the roof at that incredible idea. As the time on my iPhone turned 11:11 we all fell silent in thought & prayer. I kept praying “God let it be, let it be.” I looked at my clock again & it was 11:12. Several seconds later we received a flood of texted pictures of our baby girl with the announcement that she had been born at 11:11!!! Coincidence & luck? I think not! Without a shadow of doubt this was God’s wink to us telling us “she is yours, this is my promise to you.” NEVAEH: who was sent from heaven ESTHER: born at such a time as this HOPE: bringing hope & life #momentssquared#post2000
With these birdies, I’m trying not to be too literal. I’m using the structure of birds and reimagining them in fun color combos and compositions. I just keep dancing between the real and fantastical—it’s my favorite place to paint.
✨ Home sweet home ✨ Yesterday I put away all of our Christmas decorations and now the RV feels much more simplified and open. When living in a small space, it can start to feel cluttered quick! Even tho I did love our mini Christmas tree.
My goal over the next few weeks is to tackle some organizing projects in here and get SUPER organized. A couple of the areas I've got my eye on are:
👉🏻 the cabinets we use as a pantry,
👉🏻 our overflowing closet,
👉🏻 the underbed storage area which is currently my `Monica Geller closet'. 🙈😳 Anybody else have one of those spots in your home??
I'm thinking today I should do some "research" and binge watch Tidying Up on Netflix first... 😉 Who's seen it already? Is it as good as everyone says it is?? Help me with my research! 😆

Hey all! While we’re working on renovations out in Tucson, we’re opening up our home to rent on @airbnb (you know how it goes with renovations, we’re trying not to go broke 😉)! We very rarely open up dates at the Hacienda since it’s where we spend the majority of our time, so if this is the house you’ve had your eyes on now’s the time. Head to the link in our bio to check availability (we have opened up dates between Jan 17th and Feb 14th)🌵✨ #thejoshuatreehacienda
