Spring in Lancaster County is something to behold. We live in an area of rolling farmland that is emerald green and the landscape dotted with trees sprouting pink and white clouds of blooms . Although fall is my favorite time of year, spring’s showy display of new life almost takes my breath away! What a perfect time to celebrate Easter, or as I know it, Ressurrection Day.

We have lots to share today, and I’m starting us off…

1.) Do you wish you could reinvent Spaghetti night? I’ve got three great ideas that will help you do just that! First, think a little outside the box and make Spaghetti Soup. Second, make a casserole! This Baked Spaghetti recipe is a family favorite. Last, instead of cooking your spaghetti sauce on the stovetop, try a different method. This Homemade Spaghetti Sauce is made in the microwave, so it’s super quick and easy!

2.) I just updated my Amazon page with some of my favorite products and great finds. Take a look HERE.

3.) FAVORITE QUOTE: “Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must, but take a step.” ~Found HERE.

4.) If you wish you could transition to a simpler wardrobe, but think there are too many restrictions, take a look at this article. It will help you temper your expectations, and get you started in the right direction.


6.) If you have been wishing for some very special wrapping paper, I just found the most amazing site. It’s called JSH Home Essentials, and their wrapping paper selection is stunning. They also have things for the home, kitchen and baking essentials, a clearance page, and more.

7.) INSPIRING PLACES: this historic and sophisticated captain’s house in Sag Harbor, and a Connecticut cottage that’s rich with color, pattern, and personality. Both of these homes are on a site called Desire To Inspire, which has some lovely content. Check it out!

8.) I have to share one more home tour because my mouth dropped open when I saw the upstairs hallway. There is limitless inspiration in just this one space. There’s wallpaper, wall sconces, and beadboard, and although this is a high-end home, there are so many ideas that can be accomplished on a budget.

9.) We welcomed the first day of spring, and the weather here in Ohio has cooperated with the calendar. We’ve had some beautiful days. Millie and I walk every morning, and our time spent outside has been so enjoyable. It has definitely soothed my soul. So for the coming week, I wish you soul-soothing weather and enough time left at the end of the day to relax. 

May you have a happy and blessed Easter, Friends!
