From the Front Porch

How’s it going for you guys this week? Are you feeling productive, empowered, tired? I’m feeling a little combination of all of those things because we’ve finally started on the kitchen. I’ve spent a good portion of my time sanding…with more sanding…and then sanding again. Thankfully, my dad is on board (such a blessing!) to help out with the cabinets and my bestie S is going to help with the kitchen island. I think it’s going to turn out really pretty.

If your all, “Slow your roll, CoCo, it’s 100 degrees outside and we don’t want to be hot!” Cool off with this beautiful Blue and White Living Room

while sipping on this as long as you’re of age

or this if you’re underage.

With all the gorgeous spaces we see on social media it can be really tough not to compare our spaces with others. Truly, comparison is the thief of joy and this post is a great reminder of what to do When Comparison is All Around
