I’m not totally finished putting together our summer mantel {which can apparently be spelled mantel or mantle and has me all bent out of shape trying to decide which way to go}, but I’ve shared a few bits and pieces including our summer tag banner and this little snapshot on Instagram the other day…

Summer Mantle


I wanted this summer to be about the sun and the Son, and these quotes and verses are keeping those two things at the forefront of my mind!

I put together that little chalkboard printable after hearing the song “I Can See Clearly Now” as we road-tripped back from my parents’ house a few weekends ago. It stuck in my head and made me smile, so it went up on the mantel!

And now I want to pass on this free printable to you! I hope it brings cheer and sunshine to your house as well! Just click on the image below to download the PDF!

Bright Day

And if you have a coffee table, you’re going to want to have this beautiful new gem of book on it share with everyone! {Get one even if you don’t have a coffee table. Trust me.}


My dear friend Beki from The Rusted Chain just released her first book, Sunflowers & Sweet Tea! YAY Beki!!! Everything about it is gorgeous and original, from her country photography to inspiring words. I’m just so super proud and I think you all need to go get one. The Pioneer Woman loved it, too. How’s that for an endorsement?!

Praying your weekend is filled with all things sunny and wonderful!
