The Way YOU Are- Once Upon a Farm

Today is especially special because we all get to peek in my big sisters house! You always hear me talking about my Mom and sister and how wonderful they are, but today you actually get to hear from one of them!

Rachel's favorite spot....


Thank you for asking me to be a part of this fun series, Leah! As your sister and friend I could not be any more proud of you! I love you dearly. I am a little out of my league with all the talent you have been showcasing, but here goes! :) My favorite room in our house is our living room. We live on a farm and have a spectacular view of the countryside and all the happenings of the farm from this room. The room is well loved as we start off the day here with our morning devotions and usually end the day here with more snuggling and reading. I love that it is a mostly neutral palette that I can easily and quickly update for the seasons or whatever mood I am in. The couch, side table, and ottoman are all light colors, so it makes it easy to change the pillows and add other accent colors. I have mostly blues and greens in the room right now as they are my favs. I still love my curtains from Ikea, blue lamp on my desk from Home Goods, zebra rug from Target, white baskets from the Container Store, cream bird cage from my sister, and the turquoise suitcase that holds my favorite books. Thanks again for having me, Leah!

Sisters are the best! I have an older and a younger and couldn't live without them. I always have a blast hanging out in each others living spaces...they really are an accurate reflection of each of us and our personalities. :)
