I had such fun picking out quirky onesies for my friend’s baby boy. Zulily is my new favorite play to shop for baby gifts.

Happy weekend! I’ll see you next week with a barn update and a little fun announcement for locals!


  1. I love your blog SO MUCH! I love your book SO MUCH! You are so real and just what I needed to hear as I am constantly picking up dog fur, dust, hairballs and everything around my home while trying to keep it neat, driving myself crazy when things are all out of sorts, but also loving it and letting it go at the same time. Thank you for being so real! I’d love to do a post about you on my blog! Please let me know if you would. Thanks so much! Women like you, women like us, are the real Wonder Women. ;) Aly

  2. I love you. Enough said ❤️

  3. Oh goodness, I love that quote. It speaks volumes.

  4. The view from The Cottage is breathtaking. Reminds me of a secluded mountain top in Maui we went for our honeymoon. Have a wonderful weekend, Myquillyn.

  5. Love your cottage, chick!

  6. I really love that final quote! It speaks right to the heart of so many issues!

  7. Very Nice blog and pictures.These home decoration and accessories are very beautiful.

  8. What a view from your muse and I always love how Ellen phrases things. :) Hope you had a lovely weekend!

  9. Fabulous links. I had a funny story to tell you. I visited and commented on ‘The Inspired Room’ blog this morning. For some reason, I was thinking that it was your blog and I left the following compliment that was intended for you: “I wanted to let you know that I recently bought and read your wonderful book and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It is very inspirational and motivating. Love the ‘yes I can’ attitude it gave me!” I have since left her an additional comment trying to explain myself, but I’m sure she thinks that my porch lights are on, but no-one’s home. ☺ Anyway, I wanted to let you know that I loved your book!
