Happy Friday — and happy holidays, friends! I’m so excited to share this post with all of you. I’ve written about our kitchen before and as our family has grown, the smaller size and limited storage have become more and more apparent. The kitchen is the hub of our home, and even more so during the holidays. As most families can relate, we constantly spend time together in the kitchen. Our open floor plan (kitchen, living room and dining room) is something I absolutely love about our home. It creates an easy flow for entertaining and allows me to cook while also keeping an eye on Morgan in the other room. But the downside? Limited storage.
Hello lovelies! My, what a week this has been. Am I right or am I right? (Insert eye roll and sigh here.) I am SO ready for this weekend — and for Thrive! I’m heading to the Woodlands early tomorrow afternoon for a little pre-conference pampering then it’s a busy few days of networking and learning. Cannot wait! And to put off packing just a little while longer, I’m kicking off a new series on L. Rose tonight which I’ve appropriately named Friday Eve Favorites. I’m super excited about this series, in which I’ll share some of my current favorites in various categories (think top fashion picks, baby buys, seasonal must-haves, gift ideas, etc.) and share them with you! And for this first Friday Eve Favorites, I’ve rounded up my favorite spring storage solutions.
I always struggle with finding the right gifts for men in my life, so this year I did a little digging to find some unique gift ideas. I must admit, I’m having a lot of fun shopping for loved ones this season… there are so many great finds! If you’re on the hunt for the perfect present for your husband, dad, brother, uncle, grandpa, friend, whoever, this guide has you covered. I’ve included 40 ideas… and all under $200! From the grill master and the coffee aficianado to the tech lover or the trendy, you’ll find everything you need from little trinkets for stocking stuffers and more substantial presents to place under the tree.
