    The PERFECT Cheeseboard

    This girl just LOVES a good cheeseboard. They’re perfect for casual get togethers, dinner parties and you can even turn them into an actual dinner too – done it! Cheese, meat, fruit, nuts and carbs? All of the essentials, if you ask me. I love to mix up my boards depending on what I’m in the mood for or what I have in stock. And I can get creative with the display which is my favorite part….I like for it to look pretty! Here are the basics I use to put one together. Play around with it and use what you like. Have a variety of cheeses. Most cheeses are…

    Rug Love

    In the midst of completing our bedroom makeover, I’ve been looking all over to find a rug that fits perfectly into our new space. I’m still on the lookout for something to pull our room all together – it’s out there somewhere! – but in the meantime, I’ve found some other cute ones and I thought I’d share some rug inspiration with you today. I personally have a special spot for moroccan ones after visiting the beautiful country in 2017 and I wanted to bring one home so bad! One day it will HAPPEN! Which one do you like?

    A Friday Night Playlist.

    Oh, man, I LOVE me a Friday night. It’s the end of the week and while there may be some weekend obligations, I always look forward to ending the week with my family and a little dance party. Everyday is the perfect day to dance but on a Friday night? PERFECT and such a fun way to usher in a weekend. We always have music playing in our home, but on TGIF nights, it’s extra special to me. Rob and I will make a cocktail and the family will gather in the kitchen and have dinner, turn the music up (and sometimes, turn on the disco ball) and enjoy catching…

    A Floral Pick Me Up.

    Guys. Who is OVER winter? The days are grey and cold and dark. And it seems like it’ll never end. On days like today, I need something happy to lift my mood. So, I hopped into the car after having lunch with my family and went straight to the local grocery store and beelined straight to the floral department. I NEEDED some bright color and flowers are always a sure fire way to help lift my mood. I try to have fresh flowers in my house every single week and today I did not hold back! I bought my favorites, a couple of bunches of bright, cheery yellow sunflowers. And…

    Snow Days.

    That photo up there is of our backyard. Snow snow snow.  We’ve been hit pretty hard the last 4 days with a snowstorm. It’s been crazy. We were supposed to get our fence repaired from the last wind storm from a couple of weeks ago, so that’s why there are missing slots. I hope once we are out from under all of this snow, we can get the backyard in good shape. Yes, I’m ready for warm weather after all of this. I’ve not been out of my house since last Friday. Well, I did go for a walk on Sunday afernoon but otherwise, very much house bound. Lots of…

    Oh, hey! It’s been a chorus of crickets over here as I’ve just been doing life and getting my soul back on the mend. Life is beautiful but also can be a shit show at times and as much as I try to be positive and look for the good, I couldn’t keep it up and needed to step away to work on some life stuff and take care of some things. And I can say, right now, I feel good. I feel really good about where I’m headed and I’m in a good place. I am looking forward to growing and loving and living and finding the joy that…

    My Terphaus Favorites.

    Hi guys! It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve launched my Terphaus Shop and I am having so much fun with it. I love that I am buidling something from the ground up and that I can take it in any direction I choose. I love that this is a dream that I’ve had for a while now and am finally moving forward with it even though I have NO clue what I’m doing (and I’m OK with that!). I am loving picking out fun items and sharing them with you all. And also that I’m learning along the way about business AND about myself. Life lessons are happening here,…
