It is officially summer and this summer is better than ever! I have wanted to tackle our dock project for the longest time and now I can say it was worth the wait. The original dock was over thirty years old and it had stories to tell but it was more than time for a new book to be written.

At long last, I am actually sitting and so happy to be able to share with you the Tour of Gardens that we were fortunate to be a part of in our beautiful hometown. I say at long last because I do not think I actually sat down for the weeks leading up to the Tour and then I was forced to catch up with realities after such a long escape into our gardens. Now it is a bit bittersweet to have such a massive project come to a close but the tried and true thing about gardening is that it really never ends!

It’s that time of year …. The Kentucky Derby is here! As you can imagine, I as well as so many of you, love pulling out the hats, decor, and toasting ware. The combination of beauty and elegance from the horses, to the people, to the decor is perfection!

Sports … such a simple word but it is truly larger than life in our family’s world. Thankfully, in this day and age there is never a moment that there is not some sort of sports action to watch, cheer, scream, or sometimes just chill and enjoy. My husband’s game room has become the center hub for all things sports and I am excited to share it with you. Thankfully my husband (Tim) knew from the starting gate that his room was going to not be one that we have all seen depicted in movies of complete debauchery but rather one that exemplifies the respect of the “game.”

Mardi Gras truly tops as one of my favorite celebrations of all! The explosion of colors within masks, beads and celebrations all add up to the epitome of grandeur decorating! While participating in a Mardi Gras parade this weekend, I complimented a woman on her over-the-top festive attire and she so perfectly stated that it is the one time a year you can pull out all of your insane and quite possibly borderline tacky boxes of treasures and wear them proudly … it is so true! While adorning ourselves in the outrageous to entertain parade watchers, it is a completely different story within Home with Sparkle.

Well, hello everyone! We had a bit of a breather to deeply clean after the Christmas holidays and we had so much fun pulling out the first new decorations for 2017. To have everything in the house popping with red, pink, and love all over is just perfect on these chilly winter days!
