It’s been 90 degrees, y’all. DREAMY!!!! We’ve been thrilled with these warmer days because we’ve been able to enjoy swimming.The spring weather has become more and more beautiful now that we’re seeing less rainy days. My kids are f.i.s.h.i.e.s. and could spend their entire days swimming and snacking on fruit.

I get asked a lot by fellow mamas how my house seems to always stay tidy. My secret?… It doesn’t!! When I shoot photos in my home to post on Instagram I love the artistic challenge of styling that space. As part of that I make sure the area where I’m styling my shot is beautiful and clean. I clear the clutter, I arrange the furniture an fluff the pillows. You guys, this is SO fun for my creative brain! It’s similar to those who love to decorate a beautiful cake or design a detailed scrapbook page. PLEASE don’t mistake my love for styling shoots to equate a perfect home. None of us on instagram have perfect homes, kids, or lives. We know this, right? It may be easy to forget when you’re neck-deep in laundry and dirty dishes. My house certainly isn’t picture-perfect sparkly all, or even most of the time! But I will say this…I do LOVE to keep my kitchen clean. Luckily, my hubby feels the same way. Especially the counters, if they’re cleared off and wiped down then I’m okay with the rest of my home being messy with toys and princess outfits tossed all over the floors. View Post
