Living Room Refresh

So here's the thing.
 
When you have dogs and a child who likes to practice her tumbling on the sectional...do yourself a favor and don't buy a cream colored sofa.
 
I know you think that you can keep it from getting dirty, but you can't.  I promise, you just can't.
And if you try, you're just gonna end up crazy.  I'm not even kidding.
 
Which is why I'm already refreshing our living room.  The relief is real not having to gasp every time the dogs dive onto the sofa or Kollyns decides with her dirty feet to turn the cushions into mini makeshift trampolines. 

Plus, the coffee table was a 10 year old hand-me-down and it didn't match...which had started to get on my nerves.  And we desperately needed a cozy rug to make the living warm and inviting so we would actually start hanging out in there.

Still, the last thing you want to do after buying land, building a house and paying closing costs...is buy more stuff. 

Which is why this is happening a year later.

If you're wondering where the original console table went...I moved it to the dining room and I love it!
 
 

Just like that, Summer faded into Fall...

I love September. 
Warm days and cool nights.  Flip flops or boots.  Tank tops or sleeves.  Coffee...iced or hot.
And of course...

Fall is my favorite.  You already know this.
 
But first, a little summer recap.  I only took 348973 photos.

So long, summer.  Hello F A L L.  I'm so ready for you.
