Sharing a quick little update on all things {currently}…

Can you even believe we’re already halfway through JUNE?!


I’ve gotta say, I’ve had my sights set on Summer for the last couple of months now and, though the weather has been surprisingly cooperative with this (seriously, it’s been amazing!), there’s nothing I’m craving more than those long, wide open days of Summer. With just a week left of school here, we’re certainly looking forward to some slower, less scheduled time together as a family.


The countdown is on for those slow Summer days ahead.

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

Reading: This beautiful new book arrived in the mail last week and I’ve flipped through it nearly every day since. Written by my talented friend Jamie at So Much Better with Age, each and every page is filled with lovely french vintage inspired DIY ideas and the most beautiful photography.

In fact, I’ve already tackled my first project inspired by it…


I’ve also been working my way through all sorts of fun Summer reads. Small Great Things was a fantastic read, with some really eye opening messages that really got me thinking. This week, I picked up Other People’s Houses, which has been a light + funny read perfect for Summer. Next up, I think I may switch things up with this one (I’ve heard ahhhhmazing things!).

Writing: Letters.

Watching: This dreamy cottage makeover!

Needing: A new outdoor dining set like this or this. Hmmmm, and maybe a gazebo while we’re at it.

Creating: We built and planted our first vegetable garden a few weeks ago and can’t wait to watch it grow!

Learning: The ins and outs of growing our own vegetables (this was such a great resource!) – there’s SO much to learn!

Planning: A backyard oasis … check out all my “pin”spriration here.

Loving: Our linen coverlet – it’s the perfect fabric and weight for these Summer months!

Wearing: My new sunglasses … LOVE!

Coveting: This bench would looook ahhhhhhmazing in our front entryway!

Working for me right now: These gorgeous Summer-like days!!!

What’s not: Trying to get our kitchen finished. Still. #becausecontractors #thisiswhyweDIY

Anticipating: Those slow Summer days ahead.

  1. We are currently taking raw Ponderosa Pine and making furniture for our home. After cutting, then sanding and sanding, we assembled and varnished a sofa table. Next we are making a small bench for a spot in the master bathroom. I wanted a bench so I could sit down blow dry my hair or apply body lotion. We also plan to make a live edge mantle for the fireplace, then finally a coffee table from a lovely piece of Juniper.

I can't wait to hear your thoughts?
