DIY Baby Gate

You guys. I got a chop saw! It was my Valentine’s Day present (ha!), & I LOVE IT. I used to saw my wood by hand (not fun) or go to Lowe’s with my meticulous cut list, hoping I wouldn’t need to make any adjustments along the way. Now that I have my own way to cut […]

Snow Days in March

Soooo. Apparently Mother Nature decided to grace us with some snow. In March. Mid March, actually. Can you sense my excitement? Haha. Now, I’m not one for mom shaming but come on lady, get it TOGETHER! You guys know I’m a Florida girl, so I’m just over here wishing for summer– but  it’s pretty much a life rule […]

How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets

Hi guys! I posted a before/after picture of our newly painted kitchen cabinets on Facebook & had some questions on how we did it, how long it took, etc. so here’s the post with all the details! I’ve done plenty of painting jobs before but considering this was in our kitchen & not a beat […]

FREE Valentine’s Day Printable

Happy Almost Valentine’s Day! We’ve had a crazy start to our year so I haven’t blogged at ALL but I’m hoping that will change soon– things are fiiiiinally starting to settle down. Sort of. Haha. (Does life ever really slow down?) With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I wanted to create a free printable […]

REINDEER BROWNIES

A lot of you know we just closed on a new house last week. We’ve been soooo busy unpacking & trying to make this house a home that we haven’t had much time to do holiday projects– we don’t even have a tree, haha. I remembered seeing these adorable reindeer brownies on Pinterest (where else?) […]

MASON JAR GIFT IDEAS

I can’t believe it’s that time of year again! It snowed for the first time here in North Chicago & it’s officially feeling like Christmas time. It inspired me to put together a post with some holiday gift ideas– this time it’s in the form of Mason Jar Gifts. How CUTE are these?!? Seriously, you guys. […]

Gabriella’s Baptism!

This past weekend we celebrated Gabriella’s baptism! We had an intimate ceremony at the same church that Giovanni was baptized, & where Tom & I also got married. As a Catholic parent, it’s so special to watch your child officially become “a child of God” & part of the church. This poor girl fussed & cried basically […]

BALSAMIC-DIJON GLAZED SALMON RECIPE

This has become a regular in our dinner rotation– it’s a quick, easy & healthy meal. You can’t go wrong with that! I found the original recipe from Well Plated on Pinterest (where else?!) & we’ve tried a few others, but none are as good as this one! I mentioned on Snapchat (@thelovenotes) that I’d share […]

LIVING BIGGER IN MY DAD’S HONOR

As most of you know, I lost my dad in an accident 8 years ago, in 2008. I still, to this day, have never shared the details of what happened to anyone out loud– maybe someday I will get the strength for that, & maybe how it happened doesn’t matter– but regardless, that’s not what this […]
