Summertime Sprucing

ALLEGRA HICKS book // BEAUTIFUL book // BY THE LIGHT OF THE SEA book // HOUSES THAT WE DREAMT OF book // MARIPOSA bowl // WOODEN BEADS (similar) 

We have been house hunting for close to a year now but really started getting serious about it when we found out we were expecting #4. A few weeks ago we thought we found our next house. We had an accepted offer, had our inspection, had countless builders in to make sure we could do what we needed to do to the house to make it work for our family, signed our part of the contract all within a few days. And then the sellers went radio silent for two days and hadn't signed their part of the contract. We obviously knew something was up. Another offer came through and we ended up matching it. The sellers still went with the other buyers, no clue why, and now we are back at square one. It's such a frustrating process but I'm a big believer in things happening for a reason and know our house is out there. We might be squeezing another tiny human into our sweet home we've lived in for the last 5 years and that's ok! We are going to keep looking (we have a really good realtor- my MIL) and know we will find something soon.

In the meantime I've be cleaning out closets and shelves like crazy, reorganizing, and rearranging my bookcases and tables. I stacked the above books together and added my Mariposa bowl and wooden beads on my console in our living room for a fresh, summer feel. I had a friend ask me to put up some more home inspired posts and I've rounded up a ton of favorite items below that are perfect for summertime sprucing!

PS:: for all my friends looking for some coastal/resort living inspiration, my new favorite site is Dear Keaton- love these baskets and obsessed with these little vases. They would look so pretty with one peony in each scattered down a table.
