Always Catching Up

Woof. I always look at my blog and wished I blogged so much more! My excuse? "I'm too busy." I need to get better!

What have we been up to lately? A whole lot and yet nothing really to report all at the same time.

Here's a few fun pictures from the past week:

For one, farmer's market zinnias. These flowers always make me think of the Riverwood home, Mamaw.

Summer parties. 

Iced coffee... because it's too hot for anything else.

And a picture of KT, because. If I were here, I'd be so hot in this heat. Thankful our a/c can semi-keep up!

House Progress: Grout Renew

Ever since we bought our house, our kitchen floors have not been my favorite. I've tried every trick possible to clean the grout - baking soda and vinegar, acid, swiffer mops - everything! Nothing seems to look like they were cleaning or lightening the grout like I wanted.


I remembered a post from Young House Love about a product called Grout Renew that is essentially painted on the grout line. I was willing to give it a try.

While it said to use a toothbrush, I found that a small paint brush worked best. It took two days and many hours - there were plenty of times I wanted to quit.


But, ahhh, it was so worth it in the end. Our kitchen (and tile) looks completely new.

Before and after:

I hope I don't have to do this for a long time, but it was worth it for a quick kitchen makeover!
