Beach signs

Hi friends,
Thanks for joining me today. It's so unbelievably hot here in Virginia! It's making me think about my very favorite place in the world....the beach. Hopefully I'll find myself there sometime soon. Here are some of my favorite things that remind me of the coast.....

I just had to sneak in two pictures of my kids that I am missing while I am in Virginia supporting my mom while she's battling an illness. Here's Brayden, age 4:

Bryce, age 6, at a good friend's dress up tea birthday party:

I hope you have a wonderful weekend friends! Stay cool!
Happy decorating & living,

Organized for Summer

Hi friends,
Thanks for joining me today. I am still in Virginia hanging out with my parents and supporting my mom after her surgery this week. Keep those prayers coming for a speedy and healthy recovery. I really appreciate it! I wanted to share our updated hall closet with you. You might have seen last winter when I couldn't take all the kid stuff in our hallway anymore and cleaned out this closet to organize it with kid stuff.



Here's how I recently updated that hall closet that is mostly dedicated to our kids with bathing suits and pool towels for easy access:

Brayden's bathing suits:

Bryce's bathing suits and cover-ups:

Brayden's shoes:

Bryce's shoes:

The last day of school is this week (year round school) so we'll probably stop laying out clothes for the week in this closet until the start of school again (in 3 short weeks!):

Pool towels for the family next to the pool bag:

Let me share the other side of the closet with you. It holds, suprise!, more kids' stuff: Lego bin, art supply bin, playdough, etc.

The absolute best part of this hall closet that I can close it and all of the stuff goes away! Bye Bye!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Stay cool!
Thanks for joining me today.
