Little Bits of Love

Hi friends. Do you miss me? Because I’ve sure missed you!

It’s been a rather quiet summer on the blog, and I feel like this chat we’re about to have has been coming for awhile now. I just couldn’t find the words or the right time to sit down and open up my heart into a blog post until now. If you’ve been around Love Grows Wild for any amount of time, you probably know that I am always posting new makeovers and projects from our little farmhouse at least a few times a week. In the last 4 1/2 years of writing this blog, I have rarely taken any time off and usually work 6-7 days a week for more hours of the day than I’d like to admit. It’s just so easy to do when you run your own business out of your home.

Simple Patriotic Dining Room

Simple touches of red, white and blue give this farmhouse dining room the perfect patriotic feel.

A few months ago I was shopping for the perfect blue and white quilt to go in my armoire (which I still have yet to find), and I spotted an old flag hanging in the corner. It was in good condition, but you could tell it definitely had some years on it. Even though I had no specific place to put the flag at our farmhouse, I brought it home with me with the idea that I would find a spot for it this summer. As we head into 4th of July weekend, I … [Continue reading...]

Weekly home and design inspiration from LoveGrowsWild.com

Hi, sweet friends! I'm going to keep today's post short and sweet. The boys and I are headed to a baseball game tonight, so I'm trying to get a whole bunch of work done this afternoon so I can enjoy the game with them this evening. We were able to get tickets right behind home plate, so my little ball players are super excited for the game, and I guess the tickets also include unlimited food, drinks, and treats... Momma has a date with the … [Continue reading...]

Orange Lemon Shake-up

A refreshing orange twist on a classic summer drink. Fresh, sweet, and so simple to make!

This summer has been a busy one so far, with me finishing up final edits on my book and plenty of jobs up at the farm to be done. Thank goodness for our two eager little boys who love to help Daddy wash tractors. But in between all the long work days, we're having a lot of fun too with pool days, drive-in movies, bonfires, and occasionally an ice cream cone or two. Or three. Lately though, unless I'm able to be near a body of water, I try to … [Continue reading...]
