Currently {Life in April}

April is always an exciting month around the Mercer house, for SO many reasons…

Most importantly of course, would be the fact that our not so little man turns five whole years old this month! I still can’t believe it!


It’s a total cliche, but it truly feels like yesterday I was snuggling this sweet little babe in my arms…


And in just a few days he’ll be five whole years old. {sigh}

Though I’ll probably be shedding a few tears as I reflect on how quickly time seems to be flying by, mostly I can’t wait to celebrate the sweet, intelligent and charismatic boy he’s growing into.


In addition to birthday celebrations, we’ll also be taking part in our FIFTH One Room Challenge (what are we thinking?!).

I can’t wait to spill all the details next week!

For now, here’s a quick update about where I am {currently}…

Farmhouse Pillowcase |

Reading: I’ve been meaning to read this for ages and can’t wait to open it up!

Writing: Design plans for not one, but two separate renovation projects we’ll be working through this month!

Watching: A friend of mine told me to check out Scandal on Netflix and oh my gosh, I’ve been totally binge-watching it ever since!

Needing: A new bathing suit … what do y’all think of this one?

Creating: A fun new YouTube series with my friends at The Brick featuring quick and easy {farmhouse home} ideas!

DIY Wood Cake Stand |

Learning: How cook more plant based meals for my family.

Planning: A super fun 5th birthday party for our not so little man (check out how we celebrated last year here).

Loving: Walking into our dining space all decked out for Spring!


Dreaming about: Have I mentioned how excited I am for Spring?!

Wearing: No matter the weather, I’ve been running all over town in my favourite boots!

Coveting: This. All of it.

Working for me right now: Running with a wonderful group of gals is keeping me motivated to train for my third 1/2 marathon this Summer!

What’s not: I’ve been wasting far too many evenings glued to the aforementioned Netflix series.

Farmhouse Style Family Room |


Anticipating: Celebrating 5 whole years with this guy!


I’d LOVE to hear where are you currently? What’s new and exciting?


Now please excuse me while I curl up with my latest read & a morning coffee…

Wishing you SUCH a lovely week!
