Toxin Free School Year

Grab the book bag and lunch box.

We even stock our pantry with snacks.

This is crazy because that’s one of the biggest stresses during school.

This post will help you take back your year!

DIY Staples + Pricing


One of the biggest issues I hear when it comes to living this toxin-free lifestyle are the upfront costs.

Simple DIY Headboard


There’s just something about a headboard that makes the entire space of a master bedroom look cozy. Complete. Put together.

The only problem we had was choosing one that fit our style.

A Line Lifted is a Line Loved

My middle school classroom needed a little extra color, but I didn’t want to fill my walls with the standard posters I’d been using in the past.

I really like how they turned out!

Fortunately, I was so very wrong.

The Wall of Us

When we remodeled our living room, I knew tackling this super-long wall was going to take some extra love and a whole lot of patience. It didn’t disappoint.

I’d been looking into galleries for a while, but nothing I saw matched what I wanted exactly. Finally, after a long time of frustrated searching, I realized why.
