Colorful Record Shelf Makeover

Vinyl Storage

Rob was so excited to move into our new (bigger) house, because he finally has room to store all of his vinyl! At our tiny old house, he had to keep all of his records in the garage. Definitely not ideal. The shelf that he uses to store all of his records was pretty beat up, so he gave it to me to pretty up this weekend!

The weather was absolutely gorgeous, so I was able to hang out on the front porch and work on it all afternoon.

As you can see, it was pretty dingy and banged up. Continue reading

Moving Update & Clare’s New Farmhouse Room

We’ve been so busy I don’t even know where to begin! This is the first time I’ve had a chance to sit down with my laptop in almost a week. Moving went great! We’re starting to get settled in and unpacked. We also had our first day of work today. I was able to seed lettuce plants for a solid four hours while Clare went back and forth between Rob and I. I feel very lucky to have such an easygoing little girl because I’ll probably be able to bring her to work with me most days! Most moms know how hard it is to balance work and parenting, so the rarity of that opportunity is not lost on me. I feel very grateful.

Sunny Window Seat

I think the move was a little bit confusing and stressful for Clare, so my first priority upon moving into the house was to get her room completely set up so that she would have a little place where she feels safe and secure. Her little room was sort of unfinished when we moved in, with untreated wood paneling on the walls and cut carpet laying on the floor. The first thing on the list was Continue reading

Pinterest Roundup: 5 Pretty Window Seats

Moving is super stressful (you do not want to see my house right now), but my favorite part is getting to the new place and making it a home. Right now, I’m getting really excited about getting Clare’s room set up and pretty. Her room in the cabin is unfinished right now, so I’ll  have a blank slate to work with. My favorite feature of her new sunny little room is the built in chest right under a window that I plan to transform into a girly, cozy window seat. What little girl doesn’t want a window seat? I always did as a kid. What a perfect place to sit and read a book or daydream!

Here’s some of the inspiration I’ve been finding on Pinterest:

Looking forward to life on the farm.

Farm

We sure are a lucky trio of people. After making it through a “transitional” year, in which my partner and I both started new jobs that paid the bills (barely), but didn’t exactly inspire us, we were offered a very special opportunity. Our dear friends, Calvin and Bradi, moved to Southwest Colorado last year to work on an organic farm, called Chimney Rock Farms. I followed their journey on Facebook all year and felt so happy for our friends! They really seemed to love their new life. So of course, we felt very honored and surprised when they came to us in October and told us that the farm could use our help. Continue reading
