It’s summer birthday week at my house as I am celebrating yet another birthday later this week. But that’s ok because I am a grandma now.
It’s going to be a really fun few weeks as I will get to see all of my kids, my daughter-in-law, and my grandson. Plus we will be gearing up for a fun week at the beach house at the end of the month too!
Season 3 Volume 23
Thanks for joining me for Sunday Morning Coffee. This is a place to share, learn, explain, dream, and have fun. Let’s get started!
Yep. It’s that time of year again.
And I truly have lost count. So don’t think I am going to even tell you how old I am tuning later this week.
But that’s ok. We spent a fabulous time with lots of family in Atlanta last weekend and I just confirmed a quick trip to Northern California to visit my grandson!
I honestly cannot think of a better birthday gift, right?

My Latest Project
If you read my blog post last week about my new style at the beach house called Modern Coastal Vintage, then you might remember that I am busy at home in Pasadena thinning out things in our home.
After decorating the beach house in a simplified way, I came home and realized there was way too much stuff (aka clutter) in our farmhouse-style home.
I started with the living room and absolutely love how it turned out.
Next, I am working on the dining room. The first thing I did was repaint the dining room. When we filmed a commercial a while back they did some damage to the paint and offered to repaint the dining room.
I went with a slightly lighter version of the previous color and I love it!
Next up is our primary bedroom which also needs repainting! (And it’s painted grey which looks lavender 24/7. I hate it so it is definitely getting painted.)

My Biggest Challenge This Week
Lately, I have been reading too much.
For as long as I can remember I have loved to read. I have read every day for a few years, but usually, that means ten to fifteen minutes at bedtime. It helps me sleep.
Surprisingly, for the past month, I have been reading a few hours a day. As in every day.
So here is my problem.
I need some more good books to read!
Please help me by leaving your favorite books you have read recently in the comments below. Thank you!
I can’t believe it’s been almost one year since we were in Provence, France with Tracey of French Larkspur. The trip was absolutely magical. We shopped at vintage flea markets and brocante shops in quaint villages and ate our weight in croissants each day!
So many of you have asked about the twisting Liana vine that I have hanging on the wall at the beach house. Patrick at Through the Porthole has a few of these for sale. If you are interested, reach out quickly, they will go fast!
We kicked off the week by sharing my favorite homemade coffee ice cream, mud pie sundae recipe, yum! Next, we shared lots of ideas for summer entertaining and then how to add color to a bedroom. With the beach house finally completed, I shared what I have termed modern coastal vintage style and how you can style your home with it, how to make a faux magnolia wreath, and finally, my favorite mocktail recipes.
Did you know Martha Stewart has a podcast? She interviews fascinating people from all walks of life that have one have one thing in common: they inspire and intrigue her!
This week is going to be a fun one! I am sharing some fabulous summer faux flowers, backyard lighting ideas, and an up-close look at my newly painted and styled dining room. I also have four amazing salmon recipes to share, my succulent wreath DIY, and some fabulous ideas for Father’s Day. And sometime this week, I will squeeze in my birthday!
