America the Beautiful Free Printable

It's in the air, can you feel it?!  The smell of backyard barbecues and sunscreen, the taste of fresh pineapple, the feel of cool grass on your feet... guys, this is my favorite time of year!  The very beginning of summer when long lazy summer days stretch out in front of me and seem endless and I feel the anticipation of all the adventures we'll have!  Memorial day weekend is really when it hits me that summer is finally here!

Florida Room Style Board

I'm not a winter girl so in a perfect world I would live in a place that was never cold and was just a walk away from the ocean.  I'll probably never live in such a place but it is fun to decorate and bring a beachy feel to my Idaho home.   I was recently inspired by Douglas Elliman's Florida Real estate team to share my ideas for their Florida Room Style Board challenge.   A "Florida Room" is a room that is like a sunroom or screen room that is protected from the elements but feels like Florida all year long.

Free Printable Mother's Day Card

 If you're a mom, you know all about putting yourself last.  I worked really hard on this post but I didn't post when I wanted because I had other more important 'mom things' to get done and you know what, that's OK! Because my kids come first.  ALWAYS.  And that's what Mother's Day is all about isn't it?  Celebrating moms for the great sacrifices they make every day for their kids.
