Deirdre Heekin's Vermont Cottage

Confession: I'm guilty of spending the majority of my down time pinning, looking at design websites, or reading magazines. Recently while scouring for inspiration, I came across a tour of Deirdre Heekin and Caleb Barber's cozy Vermont cottage. The husband-wife pair infused their Italian heritage into the home's design style. 

How cute is the bar in the bookcase? And the classic white couch? Just lovely. Where do you find design inspiration?

It is all about your attitude - you get to decide whether Monday is dreadful or delightful. Won't you make today a good start to the week?

Winner, Winner

A few weeks ago, I entered a bracelet giveaway over at Waiting on Martha. Since this lovely lady's blog is one of my daily reads (and it should be one of yours too!) I wanted to support her partnership with ML Pearl Designs. However, with numerous giveaways happening all over the blogging community, never in a million years did I expect to win. Much to my surprise, the unexpected happened and yours truly received this gorgeous pearl and chain bracelet.

Ever since it arrived in the mail, this piece has become a staple in my jewelry collection. With a touch of femininity paired with tough chain link design, the bracelet can be worn from day-to-night. Thanks Waiting on Martha and ML Pearl Designs!

Monday Musings

Fresh gardenias straight from a coworker's bush.

Another week is upon us and while motivation is usually hard to find on the first day back to work after a relaxing weekend, I seem to be kicking today's to-do list out of the park. Pretty proud of this accomplishment if I do say so myself! {It is Monday, after all.}

I honestly make lists for anything and everything because if I don't write it down, I will probably forget it. So, last night before getting some beauty sleep, I created a list of goals for this week. And what better way to hold myself accountable than to share my goals with y'all?
  • Eat breakfast daily. 
  • Drink eight glasses of water daily. 
  • Mail two handwritten notes. 
  • Workout three times. 
  • Clean out my email inbox. 
  • Try three new recipes. 
Do any of you lovelies set small yet attainable goals at the start of the week?

Cheers! xx

Ever since I started Southern Grace, I've dreamed of creating this little blog of mine into something that represented all the things I love - faith, family, fashion, food, and entertaining. A combination of time and wanting everything to be perfect has kept my dream from becoming a reality. Until today.

After much thinking, I realized there will never be a perfect time to start making my dreams come true. I've got to strap in for a wild ride, work hard and enjoy every moment. And this applies to much more than just this blog. It applies to all aspects of life.

Stay tuned for new features to start Monday. Can't wait to share my ideas and personality with y'all. Any ideas and feedback are always welcome.

Cheers to the rest of the weekend!
