It’s officially only 9 days until Christmas (how did that happen!!). This season has gone by so fast but I wanted to share my holiday decor with you all. It is my favorite time of year because it just feels … Continue reading
As winter hits in Minnesota, I’ve struggled with getting my outdoor runs in— especially long runs! The sunrise is so much later now than it is in the summer, so it’s not as easy to get out for a run … Continue reading
This year, I was so excited to decorate for Christmas and started decorating right after I took down my Halloween decorations. I ended up purchasing a lot of decorations on clearance after Christmas last year and its always a fun … Continue reading
Chicago is only a quick hour flight from my home in Minneapolis and is a great city for inspiration, shopping, and eating. I recently spent a few days there to do some fall shopping and to enjoy the beautiful city.
After owning my home for a few years, I’ve finally created the best yard on the block. It’s taken a lot of work to clean out overgrown gardens, plant new flowers, update landscaping, and rid the lawn of weeds. Maintenance … Continue reading

I don’t have a way to describe my decor other than trying to stick to a freshened midcentury look without getting too modern. When I first bought my house, I didn’t have a lot of money for decor (I was 23 years old okay!). I inherited a lot of beautiful antique items from my grandma and did what I can to decorate with them.

I feel like post-Christmas is the most awkward time of year for home decor. Its always sad (yet refreshing) to take down all of the holiday decor, but I never know what to replace it with. It feels to early for spring decor, but who decorates for valentines day?
This year I went for a minimal look with a few hints of spring as a refresh after all of the holiday decor. I may have gone a little overboard on the fake flowers, but there is still snow outside so its all I can do for now!
Last weekend I toured the historic Burwell House in Minnetonka, Minnesota. The house was built in the late 1800’s and has been preserved and restored to be historically accurate. The workmanship and interior of the house are stunning. It was … Continue reading
