Ever since I moved in with my fiancé and his children, I’ve been brainstorming ideas for our front and back yards. My plan is to create two spaces that show who we are as a family. (I also want my country roots to shine through, as well.) When I first moved in with my fiancé, there weren’t any flowers in the front yard. There wasn’t...

With the departure of Winter, we’ve been thinking about different home improvement projects we could do, both inside and outside the home. One idea that we’ve thrown around is...

With four kids and two dogs running around our home, it can be hard to keep up with all the messes, especially since our house is fairly large. We have a full basement and a first and second floor. Since it seems to be a constant battle for my boyfriend and I to stay on top of everything because of both of our work schedules, we are constantly in search of home...

Since my kids and I moved in with my boyfriend and his kids almost a year ago, we’ve been talking about turning one of our extra rooms into an office for me. For awhile we thought the guest bedroom in the basement was a great choice, but we recently changed our mind on that. It’s cold in the basement during the winter months. And during the summer,...

MMM..bacon…. Bacon roses? EVEN BETTER! I absolutely love when my boyfriend buys me flowers. I love to sit at our dining room table and work so I can see them. They make me smile, especially during the cold winter months. It reminds me that Spring is just around the corner. Since my boyfriend loves to surprise me every now and then, I wanted to give him...

Valentine’s Day is only a couple weeks away, so I thought I’d share with all of you the “52 Reasons I Love You” present that I made my boyfriend. Homemade presents like this one are always a great way to show someone how much you care for them. These cards weren’t hard to make, and most of the materials you need you can find in...

I don’t know about all of you, but we experienced some great moments and some rough ones in 2013. Those rough moments were hard to deal with, and often left me crying and wondering “How much more can I/we take?” Somehow, though, we made it through all the highs and lows, and here we are….better because of all the experiences we’ve...

Now that Christmas is over, I can finally share with all of you one of the Christmas gifts I put together for my boyfriend: an emergency roadside kit. While this gift was for my boyfriend, it was also to give me peace of mind. It makes me feel better about his driving to and from home every time there’s a storm. We live thirty minutes from his work on...
