Diy: Antique French Chairs

Hello! It’s been a while my friends… I don’t have time for as much (if at all) mini home projects like I used to. With a nine hour work day and an additional three hours of daily commute, there is literally no time in my life for…anything! Work is demanding and it’s exhaustion as I’ve … More Diy: Antique French Chairs

A Sprinkle of Red

The greatest pleasure about Spring is planning out our garden. Let me be clear, we live in the city with limited green space so when I say ‘garden’, I mean pots on the front doorsteps and a few bigger ones in our tiny backyard. I love the vibrant colors that flowers add to a space and … More A Sprinkle of Red

Tuesday Tidbits

Today started off well. Before heading off to the market to pick up much needed necessities, I made a healthy smoothie consisting of nonfat greek yogurt, almonds, soymilk, and nectarine. It lasted me for a good couple of hours.  When I left the store, the aroma of fried chicken filled the air and I was … More Tuesday Tidbits

A Long Weekend.

Hello! What’s everyone doing for the extended weekend? We have more family affairs to attend to this weekend. Many family members are in town from out of state and spending A LOT of time w/ us so Zoey’s sleeping schedule is once again disrupted. Poor child! Anyhow, I’m looking forward to our nephew’s baptism, a … More A Long Weekend.

Garden Goodness

Hi! Do I have any gardeners here? One of the most joyous moments of summer for us is going to the garden and witnessing our fruits of labor. I may be bias, but things from the garden tend to taste that much better and of course so much fresher! Here’s a medley of garden goodness … More Garden Goodness

Home Sweet Home

After living out of our suitcases for over a week, we are finally home! It feels so good to be back and living normal again. And what better welcome home gift than coming home to a bunch of peonies in bloom? I went through an orchid phase, then hydrangeas, and now peonies. I’m still OBSESSED … More Home Sweet Home

Tulips Galore

We went a little tulip crazy last week! Hey, gotta get ’em before they’re gone! Not sure what these flowers are called but we also grabbed one pot of this.  Have a GREAT day! ‘Til next post, Kellie. 

Indoor Herbs

We currently have 4 pots of indoor herbs in addition to the ones that we grow in the garden. During the summer, I particularly like to add fresh mint to my water. It gives it such a refreshing taste. It’s nice to live in a place that has 4 seasons b/c you can actually appreciate … More Indoor Herbs
