Our family of 5 has grown. We recently added 11 chicks and 6000 bees!

Say chiiiiiiicks!!

6,000 honey bees loaded on the back of our truck










When my husband recovered from a major health scare,we decided to pursue our dream of a small farm: fresh multi-colored  eggs, raw local honey, simpler times, and unplugged kids.

Our own fresh eggs!



We are currently on the hunt!
So, Southern Living does not mean sacrificing style. Mama likes clean design and modern amenities. I love on-trend 12×24 tiles, quartz counters, tuxedo cabinets, herringbone back splashes, farmhouse sinks and of course beautiful, low-maintenance family friendly floors.



Farmhouse dreaming – talk about inspiration!

Barn doors.. yes!

My dream farmhouse tub










Nothing screams farmhouse more than a light-washed wood in hickory or white oak. The high color variation. The graining and character. The mineral streaks. The knot holes.

I’m currently crushing on Shaw’s Memorial Hickory and Kingston Oak hardwood for my farm dream home due to their longer and wider boards. Shaw Floors has so many looks from transitional to modern to my fave rustic…Yee-haw!

My current crush

So how are you chasing your dream? What are you waiting for? Go for it! Giddy up!

Thanks so much,
