Farmhouse Goals for 2016

2015 was a big year! I graduated with my master’s degree, got married, and visited some truly amazing places. It was also the first full year we spent in our farmhouse! Unfortunately, we didn’t get as much done on the house as we had hoped because we had to deal with some unexpected situations and honestly, after the stress of grad school was over I just wanted to relax for a while.

I think I’m fully recovered from grad school, our wedding, and the holidays, so let’s make stuff happen!! These are our goals for 2016 along with some beautiful interiors we’re drawing inspiration from.

Welcoming Autumn

Autumn used to be my favorite season. That changed a few years back when I began associating it with the arrival of winter, the time of year I’m least fond of. Instead of being able to enjoy what the season had to offer, I dreaded the falling leaves and cooler temperatures because they signaled that winter was just around the corner. I’m still working on finding beauty and enjoyment in winter, but fall… you’re not so bad. You’re actually quite lovely!

This year, we grew our first pumpkin (the bigger orange one below) and decorated our porches for fall for the first time.Autumn at the farmhouse Continue reading →
