Stay Tuned. Articles Resume on June 11th

Between June 1st through June 11th, we will be visiting some national parks in Alaska. There won’t be any new articles coming out during those eleven days, but stay tuned for more great interviews and blog posts soon. One interview happens to be my favorite restaurant owner. There are, of course, more healthy recipes and home tours scheduled

Buttermilk Biscuits and Burlap Napkins

There is nothing more comforting than a warm buttermilk biscuit. If you don’t have a recipe of your own, try this recipe shared with us by Honestly Yum. They adapted their recipe by Bon Appetite. My family recipe is the simple, yet always satisfying, Crisco version. We also have a version with butter, sugar, and raisins. Perfect for drizzling with local wildflower honey.

Meet Ali of 31TwentyFive Boutique

One of my favorite places to visit during lunch break is 31Twenty Five. It is a friendly, cheerful boutique full of sunlight and southern hospitality. I love the occasional confetti on the welcome mat and daily inspiration from the window display. Ali was so much fun to chat with and interview. She shared her style staples for summer, the history of the building, and discusses her very popular window display.

Home Tours: Broviak Guest Bedroom

This serene guest bedroom at the Broviak house is actually the inspiration for my master bedroom. Her use of industrial stools as night stands inspired me to use a set of French style folding chairs as my night stands. It is very likely my head board will be given a coat of black chalk paint as well. Her use of a coat rack is a genius idea for hanging a bathrobe and sleep shirt.

Meet Eileen and James of Little Seed Farm

It is always inspiring to read about a couple that took a risk and started over to pursue their dream business. Eileen and James Ray left New York City and a flourishing fashion career to buy a farm and raise their family in Lebanon, Tennessee. They operate the Little Seed Farm caring for goats and orchestrating a delightful line of skin care products. Below, they tell us about how long they planned their move, beauty benefits of goat’s milk, and a typical day on the farm.

Good Times Ahead in these Last Weeks of Spring

“The beautiful spring came; and when nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.”
-Harriet Ann Jacobs
There are only a few more weeks of spring. With the joys of summer approaching, it is easy to skip over these last weeks and jump to the good times ahead. But there is still time to get done all of the items on the Spring to-do list. Tackle the spring-cleaning projects. Plant flowers. Change out the front door wreath. Eat plenty of fresh strawberries.
