The story of 11 Magnolia Lane

framed couch marked

Today we are sharing the story of 11 Magnolia Lane. I have been thinking about writing a post on the “story” behind our little blog for awhile now. I figured at some point our readers have wondered our connection or maybe the meaning behind the “11 Magnolia Lane’ title and the backstory on how we … [Read more...]

A new baby and a new house!

new baby

Here is a bit of what's been going on with the other two of us while Christy's been covering 11 Magnolia Lane over the last two weeks!

I took some pictures in my daughter's room this weekend and thought I would share them. She is three years old so I still, luckily, have complete control of the decor. I am enjoying it while I can.

Things I have learned from building a house…

Back Camera

I admit that I am a bit house-obsessed. I am not afraid to say it. I like things in my house to be neat, and look how I want them to. I have often said, I want visitors to feel welcome and comfortable and my children to grow up in a home with a sense of peace and security. {As I write this, I … [Read more...]

Moving On…

house construction

I have been absent from blogging for awhile. I forgot (or blocked out!) how difficult it is to move. This time just about pushed me to the brink, between packing, finding a new house, the school year ending and working on a major project all in about a month.  I think I am still mentally recovering … [Read more...]
