swivel chairs under $500

Backstory on this space is in this post but to summarize — the living room layout was tricky because of the TV placement, the fireplace, and the width of the room. But I apparently I forgot chairs can swivel because when it was suggested it basically solved all my problems. A SWIVEL! I can create the conversational feel with the furniture layout, but if people want to watch TV they can easily do that, too. So the swivel chairs will have their backs facing the TV and the couch will end before the fireplace begins, keeping everything open but also anchored … Read more

on-the-go faves

Even though I am a planner at heart, Summer is full of spontaneous fun for us.

He’s gotten better with each day so I didn’t worry about getting an antibiotic but here’s what I used to help things move along! Children’s ACF (Acute Cold + Flu) by Buried Treasure. I’ve sworn by this stuff for years but only recently found the kid’s formula. It tastes so much better but still has all the immune support you need, like elderberry, echinacea, vitamin C etc. I put this in my kids smoothies all year round to build their immune system … Read more
