• 5 Easy Steps To Plant A Vegetable Garden In A Small Space

    This last weekend was full of fun and excitement, and also a lot of gardening. As you all know, I love gardening and I always have. What I love about gardening is that you can always make it work, no matter how small the space is. Many times, people think they need a lot of land to plant a garden. That’s not always the case! All you need are planters, some soil, a variety of veggies or flowers, stakes and a wire fence and you’re there. It’s not as hard as you think – so here’s how to plant a beautiful lush garden in a small space. 1. Planters The first thing you need to…

  • Welcoming April

    Happy April, everyone! Does anyone else feel like March went by in the blink of an eye? Nic’s birthday was this last Thursday, and we had a GREAT time celebrating. French silk pie, cheesecake, balloons, dinner, presents, family and friends… we did it all! I’m a big fan of celebrating birthdays for a whole month, and we did just that! The celebrations were wonderful, just like him. Today I woke up and couldn’t believe it was April. As I was waking up, I heard birds chirping and the sun was peaking through the curtains (really, this is all true). It was beautiful and it felt like spring was showing off its beauty…

  • 3 Secrets To Help Your Plants Grow

    This last Sunday, Nic and I stopped by at Home Depot to get some new planters for my indoor garden. As he was helping me repot some of my plants Sunday morning, I began thinking about what I do to help my plants grow. Why haven’t I shared these secrets you sooner?! I don’t know – but I’m sharing them now. 1. Watering  A big secret is watering correctly. All plants require different amounts of water. Let’s take orchids for example.

  • Indoor Planters That Will Add Flair To Your Home

    Hey, everyone! I hope you’re having a great week so far. The weather has been beautiful here, the sun has been shining bright and my heart is happy! My little indoor garden is growing like crazy! So far, my basil, daisy and poppy plants are growing at lightening speed and this morning, I noticed my rosemarie is starting to grow too. How exciting! As you all know, I love flowers and plants. I think they add a beautiful touch to your home – inside or outside. Sometimes, space is limited outside or inside so you have to get creative with your planting. I put together a list of 10 planters I love…

  • Simple and Easy Indoor Plant Organization

    HAPPY FRIDAY, FRIENDS! It was a good week, but I am definitely ready for some major R&R. Today’s blog is short but sweet. As many of you know, I love my indoor plants. When we first moved to our new place, I didn’t have any because I wasn’t sure where I wanted to put them. After a few weeks and a lot of rearranging, I finally figured it out. Today, I wanted to share my current plant stand with you because I  really do love it. At first, I was putting my plants on our side table next to the couch, and that was a recipe for disaster. Not only that, but…

  • Friday Favorites

    Friday is the beginning of the weekend and a day to relax and rejuvinate. Every Friday, I make time to do some of my favorite things. Here is what my Friday looks (and will) look like! Run I have been training for a half marathon and it’s been an exciting adventure! On Fridays, I run with one of our family friends, Mary Kate. We run through Peninsula State Park and not only enjoy each others company, but the view around us. Today, we ran a little over 5 miles! It was a gloomy and rainy morning. Many may think that indicates a bad day, but for us it meant getting…
