We have now entered what I like to call, travel sports marathon madness! Practice 3x a week and tournaments every weekend in far off places with late Sunday night returns, hotel sleeping, cooler eating, dog sitting and generally feeling as though I live on the highway.. It means I don't have near as much time for social media or for restyling my house and ya know what? For the first time in years, that's ok with me! These kids only have a few years left at home and its starting to hit home that it will all be over soon. I don't want to miss a moment of this! So thats taken me to a word called "mindfulness". I'm being mindful by enjoying living in the here and now. Although home decor/interior design is such a passion and outlet for me, it can always take the back burner while we put the important stuff first. Like kids ❀
So if you don't see me every day or I fall out of your feed, come visit my page every once in awhile because I'll still be around 😘

    My soccer kids are now 37, 34, and 28. I miss those days so much. The girls don’t play anymore, but my son has been on a few adult teams. The grandlittles are a few years from playing yet. Hopefully I will have moved closer to them by then. Your kitchen was one of the inspirations for #shereesshiplapproject πŸ˜ƒ

    What color are those cabinets?

  • 31w ago mrs.mcpeek68 mrs.mcpeek68

    I love your cabinets! When I designed my new kitchen my initial feeling was that I wanted dark grey-blue lower cabinets like these (our color is called fossil / by thomasville)- but I chickened out !! I had the cabinets white and I used the dark grey-blue for the island cabinets...I do love how it came out though

  • 31w ago rebelhornsby rebelhornsby

    Can you tell me how you made the open shelving ? The wood you used ? How did you anchor them ?
