Grab a latte, come take a virtual tour of my home decorated for Spring, and then make sure to pop down to the bottom of this post to see all of the other home tours happening this week.

My 5 Best and Worst Memories from 10 Years of Acreage Living (+ Enter to Win $500 from Esurance!)

September 30th, 2016 marked 10 years of acreage living for my husband and me. Both of us grew up living out in the country for a good majority of our lives, but the land we currently have was the first property we purchased together. If you also live on acreage, you’ll know that it has its ups and downs. For us, I feel like the pros outweigh the cons, but on this 10th anniversary of acreage living, I thought I’d take a stroll down memory lane and share a few best and worst personal memories of acreage life so far. Let’s get nostalgic and real for a few minutes and talk all about the nitty gritty of land and home ownership out in the country. Are you a homeowner too?

My home decor style has certainly evolved over the last few years as we’ve settled into the new home that we built and I’ve become better at sorting out what works for my family and for me. Today, I’m sharing with you the key elements of my “modern boho country” living room style, how it’s evolved, and how you too can sort out what your decor style is too!

Country Farmhouse Porch Decor Ideas (with a Boho Twist!)

Ah, summer evenings on the porch. I always look forward to the special time of day in the warmer months when the kids finally fall asleep, my husband and I finish up our work, and then we sit on the porch to talk and relax together. That cooler evening air is always so refreshing and it’s such a great way to end a busy day. These past couple of weeks, I was able to give our porch a little makeover so that I was even more cozy and relaxing for everyone in our family – kids and puppies included! I made our porch our own using a comfy country farmhouse theme with a little bit of my own colourful, boho inspired pops. Let me give you a tour of our boho country farmhouse porch decor and some DIY ideas for your own porch decor this Spring!Continue reading
