  3. Congrats to Kate, that is a great gift! Sarah, I LOVE your front door picture! That is beautiful!!!!! We are very blessed!

  4. I am so in love with your blog, your home and your family! You all are too, TOO adorable! I love the boys & girls bunk rooms you've done, and the kitchen is AWESOME (i have the white cabinets/black granite counters look, so we're in agreement there!!) i'm happy to be a new follower, because I can't wait to see more updates! :0)

  5. Congrats to Kate!! I had the first name, but not the last to be winner in the "Katie" giveaway! Just between you and me, though... I just need to get myself a print anyway... ;)

  6. Okay, love the picture of the flags in the white pitcher! So creative for the 4th of July! :) Also, I love the red geraniums in the pots on your front porch! Where did you buy / find those matching planter pots for your geraniums? I'd love to buy some and I'm hoping they are from a chain so I can find them here in Texas! Looks like you all had a great 4th of July! I can't wait for update posts on the kids bunk rooms now that you are moved in! Love that idea! Such a sweet family and such a beautiful blog! Love your style!

    Thanks! ~ Ali

  7. I forgot to mention that I am planning on homeschooling my oldest son (he'll be starting 1st) this fall! I'm excited and nervous! He did great in kindergarten at our local public school but, I missed him tons and I wished I could have exposed him to my favorite books vs the ones he was read! Hope that makes sense! I love classics like "The Boxcar Children" and such not a fan of books like "Junie B."! :) I'll be reading back through your old posts for tips on book / reading lists and curriculum! If you don't mind posting the nuts and bolts of what you plan to use this year for school I'd love it!
