Don’t be afraid of the dark! (paint color that is….)

Bedroom after

This is proof not to be afraid of dark colors in small rooms, especially bedrooms! The new color is Amazon Green by Benjamin Moore. Loved how it turned out, just feels warm and cozy and goes with our Target bedspread perfectly. I also like how it brings out the warmth of the wood floors. Happy painting!



Old and “new” table


Jeff made a great side table from his dad’s original boy scout chest. It’s perfect for right next to our sofa in our living room. So fun to make something new from something old!

Spring is here!

Spring has sprung in Nashville, the flowers and trees are blooming and the pollen is flying! If it wasn’t green before, it is now…. We had a great time spending Easter with my aunt, uncle, cousin and brother that live here in Nashville and their friends (who we have now claimed as family too). We’ve gone through some good  change- have moved into a rental apartment in East Nashville and have officially sold the Live Lightly RV to a great family in Florida (pics coming soon.) Feels great to be getting settled, exploring the town, and it’s been especially sweet to have my brother, Uncle Justin,  just minutes away. I’ve posted some Easter pics above and some pics of Parks enjoying Downtown Nashville below. Cheers to longer days and the warmth of the sun!
