Hello, darlings! I’m so glad you’re here!
I’m a wife and mom to six kids, including two sets of twins! Our home is busy and lively, as you can well imagine. We love to create and finish projects for our home and family, and I love sharing them with you.
Our most recent project, and biggest one to date, is Old Salt Farm, our farmhouse in upstate in New York., on nine wooded acres. We started building in spring of 2016, and moved in that same fall. We are busy with lots of projects here, making this house our home. I’ve been in love with farmhouse style since I was young, and it’s so fun to be able to design my home in that style. Here you’ll find lots of farmhouse style projects and inspiration!
In addition to farmhouse style, it’s also a place where I can post about all of my favorite things–and the list is long! I love to create, organize, make my home warm and inviting, enjoy the holidays to the fullest, do fun things with my kids, make old things new again, and add simple touches that make all the difference.
A few tidbits about me…
-I’m a runner, and in the two years since I’ve started long distance running, have completed three half marathons and a full marathon. I love it, and can’t wait to do more! My goal is to do a half Ironman, along with my husband.
-I’ve played the piano since I was 4 years old, have taught lessons for years, and love music in all forms.
-I could read all day if I had the time. I’ve been an avid reader since I was small, and the classics are my favorite. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas is in my top three! Many of Jane Austen’s works are also up there!
-Sports have always been a part of my life, and volleyball has been my favorite for them past 10 years. I’ve played on a league almost that long–I love the competition and the game!
-If I was going to watch a movie, it would be Pride & Prejudice, Persuasion, North & South, or the Bourne Identity series.
-I have a major sweet tooth. I’m pretty much always craving sugar! My favorites include Red Vines, anything lemon, English Toffee, and sugar cookies with LOTS of frosting.
-I like cooking, but I LOVE baking! It’s probably that darn sweet tooth, lol.
I hope you’ll stop by often and say hi–I’d love to have you!
