Spring is finally here and there is nothing I want more than to open my windows, doors, and let in some FRESH air! These spaces scream spring and everything spring entails: Light, bright, airy and serene.
The old me, from 2011, believed that a wall unpainted, or left stark white was more boring than ordering pepperoni pizza at a gourmet pizza parlor. (sorry Clay, but it’s true.) Since then, my mind has done a complete 180 and the vast white wall is looking enticing for some reason. I love these spring spaces with their clean lines and touches of the outdoors here and there. I’m inspired to bring the outside in this spring!

I was once told that it impossible to kill succulents. False. This is way false. I have killed many. I am an overbearing, over-nurturing mother who will not quit watering. So I found this list on Pinterest that may turn some things around for me… and maybe give me the upper hand in plant ownership.
Find the whole list here!

I have always wanted to be Martha Stewart. I remember writing about her in my 5th grade journal on “the best way to make a bed.” It seems strange now that a 12 year old was longing to be a 40-something domestic goddess. But just take out the Martha scandal and prison time, and to me, she is just about perfect. So here, she has done it again, (most likely it was someone on the Martha team, but of course, she still gets all the credit. Can I please be on the Martha team? PLEASE?!) Okay, so anyway, on her website she gives step by step directions on how to grow in-home herbs and “micro-greens”. I love this idea. I have grown wheatgrass and sprouts in my kitchen before and have loved watching them grow. This also solves the mega-problem of the molding cilantro in my fridge after I used the 12 leaves for my tacos. I hate wasting the rest of the bunch! This way, you cut it when you need it. BRILLIANT! And it looks beautiful, giving me the sense that I am oh so domesticated, growing my own herbs in my own kitchen. BRAVO MARTHA!
