Hello Sunshine: A Guide for Your Bright & Happy Home


It’s officially Summer as of yesterday, and we have SO many changes happening as this new Season is upon us. If you’ve been following along on social media, you may have caught on that we’ve been looking to sell our home and bought a new one. It’s quite the process, and we’re smack dab in the middle of it all right now with our twins constantly in tow, being total troopers about spending some time in the car and going into houses with us. Before all of this started, however, we worked on a super fun project with Leon’s and the boys got to be a part of that, too!

How cuuuuuuute are they? If you follow along on Snapchat, you probably saw some behind the scenes shots of what was happening here. So what exactly was happening here?

As a member of the Hello Yellow blogging team, I made over our living room with Leon’s and they came over to shoot the room one sunny Friday. The day was nothing short of amazing because watching Melissa, Autumn and Maya work their magic is really something special! We got to include the boys in some of the shots, and Luther even got in there once or twice!

Can you tell that’s a Snapchat screenshot up there! Ha! Honestly, my whole life is on Snapchat, so if you’re there, come find me! My username is learnerobserver and I share tons of sneak peeks of projects, plus ALL of the baby videos! Now back to Hello Sunshine!


Have I mentioned that this is what this was all for? I shared a photo on Instagram yesterday where you can see Bethany’s deck (that she and her husband BUILT in the nick of time!) on the front cover of the lookbook. Isn’t it gorgeous?

I guess this is a good time to introduce you to the other bloggers that took part in creating this. They are all insanely talented and I count my lucky stars that I get to be in this with them!

Bethany is a supermom who runs her own business, cares for 3 gorgeous children, keeps chickens, and does it all while looking incredibly fabulous. I want to be like her when I grow up. You can find her blogging about her beautiful DIY life over at This Little Estate.

Lucy is an incredible artist (seriously, she is INSANELY talented!) and has this ability to make a space look so cozy and comfortable, all while being also beautifully decorated. Her pup, Brody, is a little superstar, and if you don’t already know about Lucy, please go see her beautiful work over at Craftberry Bush.


Julie is a complete fashionista and incredibly inspiring designer. She knows how to use vintage pieces in every room and make them look fresh every time. She’s also a total genius with fabric and patterns and her home is beyond beautiful. Go see more at Elliven Studio!

Kassandra is a total sweetheart mom to two beautiful boys who somehow manages to keep her home looking beautiful while working on DIY projects. Oh, and she’s basically a supermodel, too! How does she do it? Go find out at Little Dekonings.

Joanna is mom to two adorable little girls, and she honestly inspires me so much! She always has fun activities set up for them, cooks up the most fabulous looking meals, and is such a creative DIY’er to boot! You can quickly get lost in the awesomeness over at Lazy Mom’s Blog.

Being part of this team is an absolute dream come true, and you can look our for more about it over the next few weeks as I share details of the living room makeover, how I’m managing keeping the house clean with two babies and a crazy pup, and a few super fun DIY projects that honest-to-goodness anyone can make!

Now go grab an iced coffee, put your feet up and delight yourself in the eye candy that is Hello Sunshine!
