While the spring and warmer weather may have just started making its way into some areas, here in California we start gardening a lot sooner. I started my garden last month and it’s making great progress. This year’s garden is a lot smaller than before since we gave our side yard a makeover. I planted a variety of easy to grow plants that work well in our mild semi-coastal micro-climate. Today I’m sharing my garden’s progress as well as some tips for growing a garden in a smaller space.Read More

The weather has started to finally warm up a little here in California, so that means that summer is officially on it’s way. Last year we had pretty mild temperatures throughout the summer and it wouldn’t surprise me if this year was the same. I’ve been wearing a lot of denim lately and why wouldn’t I? It’s versatile in both warm and season, and I’m sure everyone has a favorite pair of jeans. Today I’ve partnered with & Other Stories to share some of my favorite denim pieces for this summer with you.Read More

Since we’ve completed our last big project for the house, I’m moving on to finish up some details on the inside that have been bugging me for awhile. As the main laundry-person in our family of 4 (plus 3 fur babies), I spend a lot of time doing laundry. A lot. I’ve even written lengthy posts about how to care for your clothing, but I don’t get to enjoy laundry in my day-to-day life. Our laundry area is located in the hallway, and it’s not just tiny, it’s closet-tiny. It brings me absolutely no joy to spend any time there, so today I’ve partnered with Samsung to share some inspiration for our new laundry area and hallway. I really want something more functional for us that is also beautiful and enjoyable. It should feel as if it was meant to be there all along instead of someone just tossing a washer and dryer into a hall closet.Read More
