"When we see someone who seemingly "does it all" or "does it well," it's probably because they are sharing their passions: their family, their work, their hobbies, their faith, etc..If you're doing your best, you're doing things well! "
So encouraged by this little truth nugget from Layla @theletteredcottagecommunity . Hope it encourages you as well! 💕
We went and got ourselves a postbox today! There was an awkward moment at the post office when we realized the deed to the house is so old it’s described as “Beginning at a stake set in the ground...as the fence ran on or about the year 1884” instead of, you know, the *actual* street address 😄But we got it straightened out and you can now mail us at P.O. Box 604 Middleburgh NY 12122. We also did a house tour today so you can see the ‘before’ of River Street Social in our stories/highlights 😀 We’ve got some FAQs coming up in the next few days too!

Coffee and go kind of day. It’s the last week of school before they have two weeks off, so I’m trying to do as much as possible now while I still can!
My girls really love chilling at home and hanging out in the garden, so doing grocery runs and trips to grab things are gruelling to get them to agree to.
Tonight is going to be full on. Four trips to dance plus baking cupcakes for Sydney to take to school. Since I make cakes for a living the bar is set high, but this time I’m getting her to make them herself. I’ll try my hardest to not be a helicopter parent and controlling freak 😕
Any chilled out parents got any good advice 😜

The woman who sold us the house lived here alone for 30 years. She put so much time and energy into preserving and renovating it, and it was truly her baby. She had such an emotional time selling it that it was off and on the market for 10 years. When we first toured the house, we could clearly see how much it meant to her and she obviously saw me tearing up every time I walked into a different room(I was v pregnant and emotions were aplenty) and I think we both knew that this house chose us.
She told us there was a beautiful parquet floor under the wall to wall carpet but it was too echoey so she covered it up...but part of the reason it was so loud is because she covered every other surface in 1” tongue and groove bead-board...🤷🏼♀️
We tore out the carpet IMMEDIATELY after closing, and this pic was right after we drywalled and sanded the floors.
I appreciate Kathy so much and the love that she put into her home still radiates through these creaky floors. This house truly wouldn’t have survived without her, and we’re honored to continue her project.

Been very quiet on here recently - in the last two weeks we’ve had a hen do (not mine), a wedding (again, not mine) and a birthday (mine!)
We’ve not done a lot around the house recently but my parents have been busy - my parents have been busy fitting this #fireplace though. The bedroom is SO NEARLY finished!
P A T I E N C E ! ☺️ Patience always pays.......
Never did I think I would own something so beautiful.
When I was a little girl, in the box room😏
I used to change the colour on the walls, almost weekly (driving my parents crazy). This is no box room ☺️, it’s taken some time and a lot of hard work, but iam so happy that I persevered.
Sheer determination for always wanting better for yourself, not relying on no other to give that to you.
I cant explain how happy walking into this space makes me!
Executing goals you set for yourself is so important, it’s one of the most satisfying feelings, helping self growth.
I keep setting my goals and I keep smashing them! 👊🏼 Sometimes you got to be proud of yourself! 💗

Get ready for wardrobe spam because I’m still in love with these doors 😍 they were so easy to do - amazing what a difference a bit of upcycling makes ☺️💙💗💙💗💙☺️.
Also, totally aside, final episode of Bodyguard- yay or nay I thought it was a bit vanilla. 😂😂
