My handy husband and I live in a fixer upper with European Country interiors we’re slowly but surely renovating and transforming entirely ourselves DIY style with a sense of humor firmly in place! Our sons are all grown up and still my world.

Our white, serene, minimal kitchen…see it here.

My happy place? Faith and family.

When not pondering beautiful home decor and interiors (my fondness for European-inspired white interiors, timeless and tranquil beautiful home decor, and magazines is hard to miss!), you’ll find me creating: a painting, an essay, homemade cinnamon bread, or new music at the piano.

p.s.

Significance of the ballerina slippers you’ll often glimpse on Hello Lovely? This photo is one of my favorites I snapped of a ballerina I styled. I collect dead pointe shoes and danced as a sugar plum fairy in 6th grade…ballet was NEVER my strong point (I have hips and am not flexible!). Yet for me, pointe shoes represent feminine strength and a fierce work ethic–qualities I admire.
