Travel Post – Door County Wisconsin

Door County

We just visited Door County, Wisconsin for the first time and LOVED it.  I wish we had more time to explore this area but our flight was canceled and we were forced to change airlines and routes – a total nightmare! We finally arrived in Sturgeon Bay at 11pm, instead of our originally scheduled 1pm arrival.  We lost a full day to explore, however, what we did see was awesome. Why Door County??? Every summer,…

Travel Post – Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

We just got back from a trip to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan and it was amazing.  I thought I’d write a post to share our experience.  (Why am I doing a handstand in the above pic?  Keep reading to find out.) To be honest, I had never heard of Pictured Rocks.  Maybe you’ve never heard of it either?   Whatever the case may be, it was EPIC (to quote my boys!).  Every summer,…

Boho Style Decor

When I think of Boho Style Decor, I think about casual, carefree, comfy living and cool, worldly vibes. I think about natural elements like leather, bamboo, sisal, burlap or macrame. It also conjures up thoughts of neutrals with pops of bright color, and maybe a few vintage pieces or personal treasures bought from exotic travels. Boho Chic design has no ‘rules’. You can mix patterns and textures in a fun way for an exotic and…

Lighthouse Gallery Wall and Tips on How to Install One (or any gallery wall)

How to Install a Gallery Wall

I love lighthouses and I realized recently that I have taken A LOT of pictures of them over the years.  This summer alone, we saw a bunch of amazing lighthouses while in Pictured Rocks Lakeshore in Michigan, and Door County, Wisconsin.  Heck, I even got married at a place that has a famous lighthouse on it’s property.  Castle Hill Inn in Newport, RI, which houses Castle Hill Light.  Lighthouses are full of history and I…
