Wanna know what’s hard to photograph A corner fireplace with a mirror. Everywhere I turned there was a bad angle on something (or a reflection of me in the mirror). 🤪 Despite how hard it is to get a good pic of this spot, I decided to give it a try because the original shiplap and fireplace lend so much character and warmth to our living room. Well...ok, there’s no actual warmth coming from the fireplace. 😉 Unfortunately, its 106 years have taken a toll, and the brickwork is so cracked and damaged that the fireplace is no longer usable. We hope to someday put in a vintage style gas stove and have the brick/tile surround repaired just for aesthetics, but until that day comes, we’re remembering the importance of contentment, coming up with creative solutions, and loving this old home of ours.

We bought this vanity a couple months ago on clearance and I figured it was such a good price I didn’t mind that it wasn’t the color I wanted and I would just paint it ... well once we put it in I actually like it just the way it is.... 🙌🏻 for not having to paint it (I thought since we had wood colored flooring it would be too much brown in here but 🤷🏼♀️). Ignore the hole in the ceiling of the shower (I cleaned and spray painted the vent cover and have yet to put it back 😂 ... this is why projects are always 95% done, right!!) I told the hubs that we should just move out to this guest house and just let the kids take over the main house ...... I’m picturing Lord of the Flies 😂. The guest house is aaaaalmost done-ish 🙈. (We hung curtains, put up the tv wall mount, hung up the toilet paper holder, etc .... all the IMPORTANT stuff 🙄😂 this weekend ... still gotta finish the shower hardware, put up bamboo shades, etc) .... but it’s totally livable now 👍🏻. Maybe I’ll do a little walk through on my stories if anyone is interested (It’s just a bedroom/bathroom so not sure there is too much to see 😂).... Swipe for a rewind of this vanity area over this past summer.

Throwing it back to 2 years ago!! I remember this picture I took with my son on his 10th birthday.
I remember looking back at the picture after posting it and thinking is this how my life is going to be forever!😳 As a woman of course it was body image that first came to mind. Not feeling confident in picture of myself. Not wanting to buy new clothes for myself. Not wanting to let my husband touch my stomach.😥 I wish I could go back and tell my old self, stop that! 🙅🏼♀️ Stop talking negative to yourself! Stop living in the past! Stop wanting more and not being willing to change anything!👊🏻 And start loving myself! ❤️ When I made the decision to invest in self care/self love I not only saw changes physical but mentally and emotionally! ✨For me the way I can love myself is to take care of my mental health, physical health and emotional health!💗💯 When you love yourself, you feel more confident! When you feel more confident you want to be more and do more!😍 For the next 4 weeks we are going to focus on self love and you still have time to join the crew!👯♀️💃🏻👯♀️ How will you end the last few months of 2018 Drop a 💪🏼 if you want more info😘

Why do so many women struggle with saying no We don’t owe anyone an explanation to our life. We don’t have to go on some long windy stories of why. We can say no, it’s not going to work out and then get on with life in a nice way. It’s not that we are being mean by saying no. It’s using the power we have to choose the kinda life we want. So to all the women who struggle with saying no just be encouraged that it gets easier the more you do it. You will feel stronger, free and good when it’s the right thing to do. #bekindtoyourself # #myquoteoftheday
🤣our house is a disaster! I did manage to deep clean our master bathroom and bedroom on Friday. The Laundry has not been put away for what feels like a month!
Do you just cringe when your house is a mess I feel like there is a huge weight on my shoulders. “One room at a time,” I tell myself but the room I just deep cleaned is now a mess(mainly the bathroom)😭thanx to Justin for just blasting the toilet!
Maybe I would stop nagging if the people I live with cleaned up after themselves!😂 I have tried letting the mess go by it’s just not in me. I can’t function without order. But life happens in seasons. And we are just in a season where we are working very hard on our business🖤
Another #diyproject that I get to check off. Painting the tree house. And I had some help with the painting like for an hour haha. And to relieve my shoulders from all that tension #deepblue rub with a drop of peppermint essential oil. Ahhhhhhh I feel so relaxed now. #yayforpainting #shiplapwalls #kindof #iloveit
