A Dream Oasis…

August 3, 2014

I love my home.  Every nook-and-crannie has either been renovated, painted, or touched in some way to make it ours. BUT, I still dream.  I dream of creating an oasis where I can completely step away from it all, relax 100%, and all be mine - just for a moment.  Even though I love color, I dream of this oasis to be serene, quiet, and totally zen.  Soft pinks, hues of white, all surrounded by fluffy pillows and fun textures.

It's August - WOW!  Where has the Summer gone?!  Obviously for me with a newborn (+ 2 older kids), it's been a busy few weeks, but I just can't believe the days are passing by so quickly.  For some of you back to school is only a few short days away.  For us, school doesn't start till after Labor Day so we get to enjoy few more weeks of late mornings, lazy days, and soaking up the sun! Since I have 3 kids now, lately I've been trying to be overly organized and prepared.  Thinking + prepping ahead of time is my M.O.  With back to school around the corner, Lowe's put the Creative Team to the … [Read more...]
