Random thoughts on the most beautiful Saturday morning with extra sunshine:

1. If you are reading this in the morning? Just know I’m out yard sailing with coffee following every multi-yard sale sign I can find.

Wish me luck.

2. Everyone came home this week for spring break and our house was bursting.

I never knew how much I loved bursting until it left.

3. I have the cutest idea to decorate a dough bowl for spring. Line up a row of topiaries in burlap-covered pots.

4. It was an amazing week on the blog. We discussed:

6. The twins are going to a fun sorority event next week and the boys are traveling.

Everyone is living their best life.

    You're all ready for spring, aren't you? I need to get the winter wreath off my front door before the birds build a nest in it. 😮 The Rochester project and the mountain cottage are my favorites, but maybe you've already guessed that. Oh, and I love the soft green front door. So springlike.

    So many great ideas here! In all seriousness I have 5 pairs of those leggings. Love the before and after of the home in Rochester. Oh and dough bowls are always in style. Happy weekend!

    Another great blog!! I am definitely making the cinnamon bunnies on Easter morning. And I loved the Mountain Cottage! Might it be for rent…this summer? I’m desperately looking for a getaway from the low country summer heat and storms. ☺️

    Such great inspiration! Hope you had successful yard sale time. Saw where many of your family were in town celebrating that new Eagle Scout. I’d love to see you when you are “home” again.
