Inspirational Farmhouse

Inspirational Farmhouse

My friend Lizzie sent me a link to the most amazing farmhouse renovation: http://gardenandgun.com/article/homeplace-new-life-tennessee-farm It’s from the magazine Garden & Gun, which has become one of my favorites recently.  I love the opening sentence of this article: When Bob Doyle and Alex von Hoffmann signed the deed on a century farm in middle Tennessee, they faced...
Starting Our Legacy

Starting Our Legacy

Every Thursday I share something on my blog that inspires me, and this Thursday is definitely the happiest post I have ever written or will probably ever write:   That’s right folks, we’re expecting our first baby!!!!!!!!!!   If you’ve seen our House Hunters episode, you know that a big part of our decision to...

Inspirational Blog

And we thought we were cool. There’s an Australian couple who is doing everything we’re doing, but to the nth degree cooler. “There are many reasons why you might start a blog, but documenting the revival of an 18th century neoclassical ruin seems like a pretty damn good reason if you ask me. In 2013,...
Bathroom Sinks

Bathroom Sinks

For this week’s inspiration post, I’m going to lift the hood and show you what I’ve been dreaming about for the bathroom we’re remodeling:   Is this not drool-worthy??  Houzz is the best resource for finding house inspiration.  I LOVE the yellow and green combo first of all.  But what really drew my eye to...
Inspiring Doors

Inspiring Doors

Last Thursday I didn’t post anything inspirational because right after work, David and I left town and went to Williamsburg for a nice long weekend!  Friends of ours, Mike and Julia, invited us to have a couples weekend getaway and it was seriously amazing.  Just the kind of TLC we needed. While we were there,...
What Inspired Us to Move to Charlottesville

What Inspired Us to Move to Charlottesville

For this Thursday’s post about what inspires me, I’m going to tell you what already inspired me… how we ended up choosing Charlottesville as our new home. Almost a year ago, when we started thinking of seriously leaving the DC area, a lot of our friends understood that sentiment and expressed a similar desire themselves....
I Dream of... Water

I Dream of… Water

My inspiration– what’s been keeping me going this past week– is the knowledge that soon, we will have new pipes, and therefore dependable running water. David has done so much this past week to get us water but he’s just no match for Mother Nature and her sub-freezing temperatures. People say to just leave the...

Inspirational Bloggers

This Thursday I decided to share with y’all some inspirational bloggers in my life.  I’ve only ever met (face-to-face) one of them before, Lesli from myoldcountryhouse.com, but these other bloggers inspired me to 1) start renovating a farmhouse with David despite neither of us knowing what the heck we’re doing, and 2) to share our...
Inspiring Garden: Monticello

Inspiring Garden: Monticello

If you’ve ever visited Charlottesville, chances are you’ve gone to the estate of President Thomas Jefferson: Monticello.  I had the pleasure of touring Monticello (for the first time ever– such a disgraceful Virginian I am!) last November with my family and fell in love with the beautiful restored gardens. Easy on the eyes, isn’t it?...
Inspiring Charlottesville Farmhouses

Inspiring Charlottesville Farmhouses

I decided I’m going to start posting once a week about something that inspires me… and since today is Thursday, I guess it will be every Thursday! This week I’m writing from Kansas City and wishing I were back in Charlottesville with warmer weather.  I thought I’d see what all was going on around Charlottesville...
