hello friends!

it’s my birthday today and i am so excited to celebrate with you.

each of you is such a gift and i love connecting with you through this little blog.


a friend of mine surprised me with birthday flowers

and i found that darling book above at a thrift store yesterday.

blue + green cover with yellow flowers. what a birthday treat!




and our living room was asking for a coffee table,

but sectionals can be tricky.

but i found the perfect (ugly) maple coffee table at my favorite thrift shop.

a lucky birthday find!




which i promptly painted cream

added a super soft rug from target

and a cream throw we already had.

i can’t believe how much it softens up the room.

i might spend a lot of my birthday in this room soaking it up!




a giveaway seems like the perfect way to celebrate!

don’t you think??

one lucky winner will get $100 to spend at lisa leonard designs

AND $100 to target {yay!!}
