minimalist shared nursery

minimalist shared nursery

 After our son was born, we wanted to create a space that would be functional. We never considered having an exclusive nursery as functional. I wanted a comfy place to rest my head on those sleepless nights of cluster feeding and a place where my toddler can rest her head in the late afternoons too. Being a stay at home mother means that most of your time is spent making sure your children are comfortable. If that's serving them lunch of their favorite plate or their drink their favorite sippy cup. For us, it's about our humble abode being inviting...

farmhouse tour - morgan ford

farmhouse tour - morgan ford

We bought my husband's grandparents farmhouse 5 years ago. I remember when we were dating he talked about wanting to buy their home and I looked at him and laughed.  I put my foot down and said "nooo wayyyy," but it's funny how your heart can change, and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. You see, I married my next door neighbor and his grandparents farmhouse is smack dab between the two farms.  His father is a cattle farmer and so are mine.  I still remember the moment I reconsidered the thought of raising a family here. My grandfather gave...

Minimalism & The Playroom by Autumn from @autumnsjoys

Minimalism & The Playroom by Autumn from @autumnsjoys

Fewer, better toys are actually better for our children. Let me explain why. Minimalism, defined as a style or technique that is characterized by sparseness or simplicity. Between two kids, birthdays, holidays and four sets of grandparents, my playroom was anything but simple. In fact, it was so full of clutter and toys that my children simply wouldn’t play with anything. They would dump things out of baskets, but not take the time to play with what they’d just scattered on the floor! Something had to change. I began doing some research, with the aim to bring the concept of...

lucid memory foam mattress review

lucid memory foam mattress review

We've had a huge, soft pillow top mattress ever since we've been married. After I started looking into the memory foam mattress-craze, I wondered if our mattress had been contributing to my husband and I's back problems. After a lot of research I came across Lucid Mattresses. My favorite part about this company (besides the prices) is that they make it super easy to choose the right one. It's stressful choosing a mattress online without testing it out first. My husband is a back sleeper so, in theory, he needs a firmer mattress compared to me (a stomach and side...
