Google the phrase “Millennials and Plants” and you will find some interesting headlines, “The One Thing Millennials Haven’t Killed Is Houseplants”, “They don’t own homes. They don’t have kids. Why millennials are plant addicts”, and “Millennials are hiring consultants to raise their ‘plant babies’.”
I’ll be honest — I’m a rather typical millennial. I love traveling, avocado toast, fast casual food, instagram, online shopping, and of course — PLANTS. If a room in my house has a window, I have at least one plant in it. I counted, I have 10 plants and honestly… that’s not a lot compared to many other millennials out there.
Today I’m talking about the Pilea Sharing Plant. It’s one of the trendiest plants on social media and it’s a perfect plant to have in your home and share with others.
You can buy one of these plants at HOME DEPOT (that’s where mine came from). Home depot has a great assortment of houseplants an an AMAZING 1 year guarantee on their plants.

Although I found it very easy not knowing the gender of the baby, it did make planning for the baby and decorating for the nursery a little more difficult.
Our little baby GIRL, nicknamed “McFly”, arrived on May 27th and is more sweet and beautiful than I ever could have imagined.
Her nursery is a perfect fit for her. I’m so excited to share her room with you.Most of our home has a very bohemian look and feel and I wanted to carry that same theme into the nursery. I wanted plants, baskets, rugs, and natural fibers. Continue reading →
As many of you know, my husband and I purchased a home about a year and a half ago. Slowly we’ve been upgrading, remodeling, and decorating.
Although kids are going back to school, we still have about a month and a half of the real summer season left. I figured there was no better time than now to get some furniture for our back deck.
