Thanks for joining me! If you asked my friends they’d say I’m about two years too late in making this leap into blogging (Hi, Brooke! Hi, Whitney!). While it’s been something I’ve always wanted to do, I’ve never had the confidence to push publish until now. I have each of you to thank for that! Every comment, like, and message with questions or suggestions as I’ve been making our new house a home has made me certain this is the right path for my life right now. With my Instagram slowly (very, very slowly) growing it just seems right to start a blog to track all of our fun projects and adventures.

The best part of this journey so far has been hearing how my ideas have inspired friends in their homes. While I’ve gotten a lot of feedback on different projects that I’ve done (which I’ll be sharing on the blog later!), the most frequently asked question is “Where did you get your rug!”
I love being able to share that this beautiful rug is from Amazon! At an already affordable price, Prime offers free shipping right to your doorstep. Who could complain about that? It’s made settling in to a house with a hard floor so much easier on the little babe and our dog. The polypropylene is easy to clean and the thickness is just soft enough for on the floor play. I did pair the family room rug with a thick rug pad because I knew we’d spend more time playing in there.
I actually did a “crazy” thing because I loved this rug so much. I ordered several different sizes and have it all throughout our house. I honestly couldn’t find another rug (that I could afford) that spoke to me the way this one did. Even with the distressed print and beautiful blue and gray colors, it becomes almost a neutral backdrop for the other furniture and decor. I also know tons of friends have the same print in a different color. It’s a very friendly rug for all different styles.
Have you ever ordered a rug on Amazon? While I love supporting small businesses, it definitely makes small town mom life much easier. Let me know if you’ve ordered this one. I’d love to see it in your home!
