{my dream}

I am starting to live a dream that I have had all my life!

I remember in college touring the Design Department and my heart would pound with excitement....and that was just walking in a classroom!
I went on with my life... marrying the man of my dreams, having our first son Tristan, graduating college, becoming a teacher, and having our second son Deacon. I have been teaching for 5 years {2 years in 2nd & 3 years in 1st} and this was my last year teaching. I am looking forward to what God has in store for me...on my new adventure!

As I is so hard to believe it has been 5 years...
In the 9 1/2 years I've been married my decorating styles have changed.
One thing that has not changed is adding color! I do not think I have ever had a white wall...or I should say for long. Right when we got married we lived in an apartment {remember you can't paint} and I could only stand cream walls for so long. So, I bought red and pink fabric and striped my focal wall my bedroom....stapled it to the wall. I have had tons of art pictures all over the walls with bright colors and funky warm colors on the wall and that warm inviting "Southern Living" feel in our home.

I have enjoyed looking back in the past and looking at what I "used" to do to what I "do" now.
Some things I look at...I think "what on earth was I thinking" how come no one told me.... while others I still do today.
Here are some things that can give you inspiration when you decorate:
-look at magazines & cut out your favorite pictures {make a decorating binder}
or online: create a folder and copy the pictures in the file
- watch HGTV...they have some really great ideas
-search for all those amazing decorating blogs out there...& Bookmark them!
-go to show homes...they have some great ideas
-i love looking at Southern Living Magazine and BH & Gardens
-i also love taking pictures of ideas
My Dream of owning a small business is beginning to come true.

Another side of Just Simply Southern is my precious frames.
My frames are an opportunity for me to create something just for you! If I can't come to your home and decorate with you than I can personalize a frame just for you!
I am adding more items in the shop as soon as I get back from vacation.
