Hello, new friends (and old)! So happy to have you here and following along. Here’s a little look at the dining nook in our mother-in-law apartment. The whole apartment is 650 sq ft done on a budget. I’m a firm believer that you can pack character and charm into any size space and even on a tight budget. You can shop this space via screenshot with the @liketoknow.it app and I’ll also be sharing details on my blog soon! http://liketk.it/2wFZF #liketkit @liketoknow.it.home #ltkhome#europeanorganicmodern photo taken by @travisj_photo

She started out life as a simple sketch but didn’t know when to stop: building layers, contrast, texture and interest as she went... metaphor for life or artistic process? Both are true. Swipe to zoom out and in 👉🏼
The little fluffs getting in on my #Nordstrom sale goodies. This throw is the softest! It comes in a bunch of colors and really reasonably priced. Also, this rope pillow is 👌🏼.

I’m still so surprised when a new STR (short-term rental) owner asks me what the “magic formula” is for a successful rental. Honestly, what took the Lodge from before to after was pure instinct. We created with the idea of what we would love in mind and not how many people were watching us on Instagram. Cuz once you start letting gimmicks and opinions take control, I think you lose the heart of what you tried to create away. And it’s that sincerity that we hope makes the Beach Lodge the home away from home that it is for our guests. But hey, if Coastal Living Magazine wants to throw “Rental Genius” out into the universe, who am I to argue; a girl can always use a little ego boost every now and then. 😉
Still obsessed with cactus 🌵 And totally obsessed with our workshops and private events! Have you read about them yet? Our creative classes (excited for the embroidery one!) and educational courses are so unique and inspiring! And our kids party packages are beyond adorable!

This weekend I surprised myself by discovering that I now LOVE working on paper! I think seeing my art in print form opened me up to this shift and pushed me to try something new. These studies are oil + cold wax on paper. Swipe through to see all of their textural goodness! 😍
These little’s will be released with a new collection towards the end of August.
One of my favorite shots of the new renovation. There used to be a wall here blocking all the natural light and making the kitchen area feel completely blocked off from the rest of the house. Open concept FTW🙌🏼🙌🏼 #quailcreek

Call me crazy, but I didn’t realize New York was a place that rains so much in the Summer. It has absolutely bucketed down here today! There is something nice though about rain on a warm evening though! Are you someone who likes the tropic humidity or do you hate it? I feel like you’re either a lover or hater of this kind of weather 🤷🏼♀️ but you tell me 😉☺️ .
On a side note, my gf laughed at my uneven lavender haha but I think it looks good all crazy up there ☝🏼 thoughts? 😆
Happy Sunday everyone 😘

some things I want to remember about our time in this cottage: my ongoing peppermint tea phase, reading this book by anne lamott again and really needing it this time, and the way the world looks from the porch in late july 🍵🌙🌿
A little #abellsabode update - our guest room will be ready for visitors post wedding! And you better believe one of our tourist stops will be Madison’s famous farmers market 🙌🏼 Dave and I can’t wait to have our weekends together again 💛 where else should we put on our Madtown bucket list?
Kitchen duty with my littlest helper! ☺️ The other day on our live I shared my quick, healthy, and OH-SO-EASY dinner meal I’ve made four times this week already. 🤗 I’ve been getting a lot of questions about it so I thought I’d share it here. And it really is sooo easy (and delicious) that I think many of you thought you must be missing something. You’re not. 😆 It’s just that easy. I’m going to share below, and I’d love to hear some of your quick and healthy meals as well!
Get out your old DutchOven. (If you don’t have one you can find them almost anywhere; try amazon) you can also make this in almost anything but the Dutch oven gives it a specific flavor I love. I digress;
1. Get out your DutchOven
2. Pour in avocado oil to cover the pot. (Not olive- when heated olive oil emits toxic smoke)
3. Salt and pepper (or season however you’d like) boneless skinless chicken thighs. (Putting these on the bottom will make them crispy. 😋) we also love a good barbecue sauce on it.
4. Then cut up potatoes, carrots, onions, green beans, summer squash, zucchini ... any veggies you’d like; season, and place them on top of your chicken.
5. Bake in your oven (lid on) for 45-50 mins at 375*. That’s it! Serve with watermelon, corn on the cob, or salad.
Easy-peasy, healthy, delish. ☺️ I’d love to hear some of your favorite quick, easy, and healthy dinner ideas- Let’s share below! Also, tag a mama that could use some easy in her life and let’s all share then wealth. We mamas need all the help we can get. 😆🙌🏻 Food for the belly:👆🏻 Food for the soul: 👇🏻 “We are responsible for the home we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.” -Thomas S. Monson
Happy Sunday sweet Friends. ✨ *photo by my dear friend @roxanabphotography
