The sun was beaming into the living room this morning & it reminded me of that quote, “We are all broken, that’s how the light gets in.”

If you haven’t yet heard the recent speech from @prattprattpratt, look it up. He shared a lot of humor & wisdom and reminded us that no one is perfect & that’s why there’s grace 🙌🏻❤️

Summertime is for play 💪🏻 We finished the “house” portion of the playroom which includes a laundry station, a kitchen & a cuddling couch; and on the adjacent wall will be a sweet little farmer’s market 🥦🍓🥒🍅
.
Dramatic play zones encourage so much for young children, things like: creativity, problem solving, social interaction with peers/siblings, language development and even emotional relief (yes, little ones get “stressed”, too) and frankly, it’s just so cute to stand back & watch them play make believe.
.
It may look like all fun, but there is so much learning happening when kids play! If you don’t have space for a play area, keep a basket full of costumes & props and watch their imaginations run wild 🏃‍♀️ 🏃 #mykiddecor .

Words fail me when I try to describe the type of father my husband is to our children. Even though he carries the 3rd generation name, his father was nonexistent in his life & still is to this day, yet he is legitimately one of the best fathers I’ve ever seen. He was raised by a single mother, family members, church leaders, athletic coaches - basically, a dang good village & I thank God for them all because they helped shape him into the man he is today. 💙

He is the first to pick out our girls’ matching outfits, take them to the park to play, initiate tickle fights, pray for them, have my back with discipline, but also the one who says “just let them stay, it won’t be like this much longer” when our kids crawl into the bed in the middle of the night. 😑🤷🏼‍♀️
💙

I thought I knew what love was on the day that I married him, but watching him raise our children opened up a compartment in my little ol’ heart that I didn’t know was there.
💙

Happy Father’s Day to my baby daddy and to all of you incredible men who show up for their kids and to the single mamas out there playing both mom & dad. 💪🏻❤️

About a month from now I’ll be heading to #Charleston, SC for my first time at @havenconf ❤️ I really didn’t look up much of the information before I booked my ticket, all I knew is that it involved home decor/DIY and that I was in need of a major getaway. Every year or so, I try to travel and do something for myself - by myself. Because when you’re a wife, mother & business owner - sometimes you forget to pause and take time for you. Why does that sound so selfish to type yet I know it’s one of the most unselfish things we can do? You can’t pour from an empty cup, nor can you travel very far running on fumes. This is your reminder to say: It’s OK to treat yo self every once in awhile 👌🏻

Since it’s technically Monday here; a big thanks to those of you who played along for our 1st week of #mykiddecor 🙏🏻 I loved seeing how you incorporated family photos into your home decor.
.
.

The winning feature and this week's co-host is Stephanie @scscurlock . I just adored the sweet gallery wall in her girl's room and look at that wallpaper 😍 Fun fact: she has a little girl named Ryan, too! (Mine is spelled Ryen)
.
.
This week's theme is: DROP ZONES, ENTRYWAYS & COMMAND CENTERS - I'd love to see how you keep your family's stuff organized so I'm tagging a few friends. To play, just post or tag your photo with the the hashtag: #mykiddecor anytime Monday through Friday - that's it!

I woke up to a bunch of new friends on here thanks to @projectnursery sharing our girls’ room 🎀🌸 so thank you for following along on our home decor journey and for all of your sweet comments. I poured my heart into this room & our girls just adore it which makes it that much more special.
.
Here are some answers to a few of the questions I’ve been asked:
.
I made and designed the sign and intend to offer something similar once we re-open our shop for good which should be within a month or two (trying to get everything set up in our new home)
.
.
We also made the night stands since space was tight - I used a stained wood round cut in half and painted some corbels white then attached together directly to the wall. They aren’t super heavy duty, but they do the job. (A how-to is coming)
.
.
The artwork is peel & stick wallpaper from @wallpaperie that we attached to plywood and then framed out, link for floral artwork is in my bio.
.
.
White metal twin beds are from @amazon and exact link is in my bio. .
I did a how-to for our faux shiplap wall, you can see it in my highlight reel.

In case you missed it, I’m running a flash sale to try & free up some space in my (much smaller) shop office! All baby onesies and totes are 25% off so snag one up for yourself or a friend. No coupon needed ❤️ Link in bio - NO signs at this time, they’ll be available when we open for good. We’re working as hard as possible to get everything in order 🌿

I’m sharing this little hallway area for this week’s #mykiddecor theme: PHOTO DISPLAYS
.
These 8 frames hold some of my favorite family photos over the years. It’s important for me to budget and schedule a family photo session each year cause kids just grow up TOO DANG FAST, y’all.
.

I’d love to see how you display photos of your littles in your home. To play along, just share a photo and use the hashtag #mykiddecor - and thanks to those of you who have shared already ❤️❤️❤️

A little date night action. When my mom says, “Why don’t y’all go out on a date?” these parents of 3 don’t hesitate. A little @poncecitymarket action (this place is incredible!) followed by some comedic relief regarding my favorite show of all-time, #theoffice, sounds pretty amazing. Now, if we could add in some Mexican and dancing, you’ve got my idea of a dream date night. Happy Saturday, friends!
