I’m turning 30 in two weeks! I’ve made a few things on this list (roast chicken, cupcakes, salmon, risotto) but definitely have some work to do building out my kitchen skills and recipe repertoire! 10 Recipes to Cook Before 30  Guest post by Louisa from Living Lou I’m making my way through my twenties right…


Living Room Inspiration

This room is going to take a while to fully put together. It’s all in the details, of course, but most furniture just takes ~forever~ to deliver. I wanted to live in the house for a little bit before I tackled this room. We did the kitchen and family room first. Working on the master…

Diary No. 13

This has been a fun two weeks of travel and visitors! Some iPhone snaps: Mike’s family’s boathouse is dreamy. We spent most of the (extra long) weekend up there playing ping pong, reading, and looking out at the water. I have to say… why on earth is ping pong so fun?! Could have played for hours!…

My Favorite Lilly

I’ve “retired” nearly all of my Lilly dresses. I have a few that I keep up here with me but I just don’t have that many opportunities to wear them and I find myself reaching for different brands/styles even when I go on trips. I will still forever love Lilly, but I think my days of…

Trying to be More Consistent? Three things to Remember

I’ve always been a fairly regimented person, which lends itself well to being a consistent person. Although I’m not consistent with everything, if I put my mind to something more often than not I’ll stick with it for the duration of the goal (and longer). Maxie’s here to share some great things to keep in mind…
