  • Another sunny day here on the farm.. if a soul can sing.. mine is singing! I needed this. I’ve been reflecting a lot this week on the past seven years of our infertility and miscarriage journey. Lots of late night thoughts & even dreams about it all. I’ve come to realize that I once dreaded the thought of never “getting over” the loss & the years of infertility. I used to be scared that I would never fully heal from all the pain we endured because I would never forget what happened. I’m slowly realizing that it is not something to dread. The thought of never “getting over” those years and those losses now gives me strength & hope where it used to fill me with pain. Those years of struggling & those heartaches are a part of my story & have made me who I am today & brought me to this beautiful point in life. I will always choose to have my pain push me forward, my losses give me hope, & my fears give me strength & this infertility and miscarriage journey has taught me just that.  I’m not saying that I know how your journey looks or saying that I know how you feel.. but I hope if you aren’t there yet where you can embrace your journey & not dread the healing process or knowing that you might never “get over it” all... that you know it’s possible. It’s possible to always remember the loss and the pain,  but to be fully and completely happy at the same time. I hope I can be that proof & inspiration for you. Love you all & happy Friday!! #whitecottagefarm #lmbpresets #cozywhitecottage

  • This hutch is so gorgeous that it needed its own blog post... head on over to the blog to see more of this beautiful piece: LizMarieBlog.Com - link in my profile. Can you believe these pieces didn’t come together?! The bottom scallop table & the top hutch did not come together & I actually bought them separate & a few years apart, but I think it was meant to be! I hope this inspires you to think outside the box when you find antique pieces!! Head to the blog & let me know what you think!! #whitecottagefarm #lmbpresets #cozywhitecottage

  • This little corner of our house got a little happier this past weekend with this happy little arched window mirror. See where I scored this mirror & how affordable it is on the blog today: LizMarieBlog.Com - link in my profile. You may be shocked where I found it! After you go to the post, come back and let me know if you ever buy home decor from where I got these mirrors.. I would LOVE to hear!!

  • Sorry I’ve been A little MIA this week... we were having way too much fun with the @renewalbyandersen.llc team & filming something kind of cool! You guys know how awkward I am in front of my phone camera so imagine me with professional cameras & lights... lots of laughs!! Wish y’all could have been here. Our week is off to a good start here & I hope yours is too! My goal is to NEVER to be on television.. seriously. But I’m curious: if we had a TV show, what would you want it to be about? I’m thinking the only one on this farm that should be on TV is Winnie & Grace... they were made for the camera! Ps. Check out my stories to see our window progress! #whitecottagefarm #renewalbyandersen #lmbpresets

  • Sunshine and new windows in the house today?! Feels so good! I can’t wait to show you more of the window progress upstairs tomorrow, but we are finally also starting to make decisions for our dining room area here in the kitchen as well. Window treatments are ordered, a larger chandelier that fits the space is on it’s way, & we have been slowly collecting a few bigger pieces like this table & chairs from @arhaus.. I love that feeling when a space starts coming together like this! I hope your week is off to a fresh start like ours was. Oh, & on the blog today? The BEST dog items for all my dog moms out there: LizMarieBlog.Com - link in my profile. I hope you enjoy the post!! #whitecottagefarm #cozywhitecottage

  • Living in a historic farmhouse fixer upper is not for the weak hearted that’s for sure.. it’s a constant work in progress, constantly a mess somewhere, & constantly keeping you on your toes... but it is so much fun if you LOVE it! We happen to be obsessed with living this fixer upper life & so the constant work & constant problem solving is fun to us. In this weekends Farmhouse adventures: prepping the house for all new windows upstairs that starts tomorrow so it was a full shuffle of furniture throughout the whole house to make room for the crew... although it was a lot of work to prep for this big renovation project this week with @renewalbyandersen.llc, it was fun to play around & make the in-between temporary furniture shuffle pretty. I’ll be sharing the whole adventure of getting the new windows this week with your guys so stay tuned for that big adventure! Hope you all had a great weekend... did you do any home projects this weekend? I would love to hear about them!! Or do you have any planned? We have a bunch planned here so it’s about to get real exciting here on @whitecottagefarm 🙌🏼🤗🌿 #whitecottagefarm #cozywhitecottage

  • This week I have been so blessed by acts of kindness from friends and family & it has truly made my soul feel rested if that makes sense. It’s the only way I have to describe it.. maybe you are the same as me, but whenever I’m feeling down or have a bad day it helps lift my spirits to do random acts of kindness for strangers & loved ones. From a simple phone call to donating to a charity to sending Starbucks gift cards... do you do the same thing?! of course we try to do acts of kindness daily, but it seems to heal my heart during those hard times even more. I would LOVE to hear your ideas for acts of kindness below! I’m feeling all the feels tonight & want to pass on the kindness so leave a comment below saying your favorite way to spread kindness & I’ll pick two tomorrow and send you a Starbucks gift card on me. Coffee is my love language & I love you all! #whitecottagefarm #cozywhitecottage

  • I can’t believe that this time next week this view of our house will be looking VERY DIFFERENT! We finally decided to replace all of our upstairs windows after living here 3 years and dealing with them leaking and allowing the elements in due to them being old and rotten. @renewalbyandersen.llc will be here on the farm next week to replace the windows & I can’t wait to see how much more beautiful this view from the orchard will be. Today’s farm walk was very snowy and windy but I wanted to get one last shot of the house looking like this. I’ll be sure to share the whole process and the before and after of our window project with you guys so stay tuned! the exterior of our house has been slowly coming along & we have a lot to do yet, but it’s all worth the wait! Ps. If you live in a fixer upper or need new windows.. stay tuned for all the info I will be sharing about why we chose this process & why it works great for window replacement! Can’t wait! #whitecottagefarm #cozywhitecottage
