He turns 15 in two days. He’s 6’, wears a size 12 shoe, can cook for himself (and sometimes his brother & sister), takes out the trash, loves traveling and Top Gear, hates making his bed, works out every day and bends over to hug me goodnight every night. I think he’ll turn out okay. 😉❤️ @layne._m . . On a tangent, I strongly dislike our kitchen. It’s inherently dark (it faces north and there’s a screened-in porch off the French doors.) The layout is...”interesting.” It features an angled island, corner sink, pass-through and soffit. (...said no dream kitchen wish list EVER) 😬😬😬 But it’s fine for now while we focus our efforts elsewhere. The appliances work so...there’s that. . . . Last winter we spent <$500 to make it a bit more bearable. We removed swinging saloon-style doors from the doorway 😳, replaced three bulky upper cabinets with inexpensive shelving from IKEA, replaced an outdated grimy ceiling fan with a flush mount light fixture, painted the orange-y cabinets (using leftover paint from Mabrey’s bed several years back), removed an awkward laminate overhang on the island and replaced it with cut-to-fit butcher block, updated the sink faucet and added cabinet hardware. It’s not perfect, but it’s better. We’re hoping to get another 2-5 years out of it. In the meantime, I picked up a cute little lamp from Target for the countertop that pretty much stays on all day for a cozy, lived-in vibe. It’s my favorite thing in the kitchen! ✨ . . . All that to say, I’ll take the good kid in my bad kitchen. 😊 #goodkidsinbadkitchens #finefornowkitchen

Here’s to a weekday off while the kids were at school, a clean house, windows open & the A/C off, Friday night drink/game/karaoke plans with the neighbors, Van Morrison tunes spinning in the background and my girl pretending she has homework like her older brothers. 🙌🏻 🤓#gimmeallthefridaysoff #pretendhomework

Spent a gloriously long morning on the upstairs deck reading, drinking (hot!) coffee, watching a mama deer & her two babes in our back woods, listening to birds & breezes in the trees and cracking up over Mabrey (in cheetah shorts no less) & Hobbes playing fetch. Slow mornings are my jam... and few and far between. #muchneeded #mycatisadog #blackhouse 📖☕️🦌🕊🌿👧🏼🐈😂❤️

Dear previous #blackhouse owners: Thank you for planting and nurturing lilacs, hyacinth and peonies galore! Spring breezes never smelled so sweet!! I promise to pay it forward with annual pruning & mulching and pretty vases of cut flowers to share on IG and taunt my cats. Sincerely, Dana 🌸🌺🌿#peonies #lilacs #nevermovingagain

We’ve been in the #blackhouse for almost two years. Crazy! Since the house was livable (although verrrrry outdated) we decided to work on it from the outside in and live in it a while before making any drastic changes inside. The first year we tackled a bunch of outdoor projects (which I still need to share). Then this past year we spent the better part of winter ripping up carpet on the first floor, installing white cork flooring & new baseboards and painting, painting, PAINTING. We aren’t anywhere close to being done (will we ever be?!🤷🏼‍♀️) but it feels amazing to FINALLY breathe new life into this place!!Especially since we plan on being here for the long haul, like until the kids are gone. 👵🏼👨🏼‍🦳#nomorecarpet #foreverfornowhouse #paintingbreak
