I want to take a moment to share my love of chalk paint. I just really think this stuff is awesome. I realize that there are differing opinions on this type of paint, but as of now, I stand firm in saying that chalk paint is one of my favorite paints to use.
Once I realized how easy it was to make syrup, I never bought it from a store again. Really, it is so easy to just whip up while you are waiting for your pancakes to cook, and you are left with many more servings of it afterwards. So be sure to have a syrup bottle, to store extra syrup. It's a simple 2:1 ratio of sugar and water, so make as much or as little as you'd like. I have a feeling that you will be wanting to replace your usual syrup with this one from here on out.
It doesn't quite feel like a complete family to me without a go-to pancake family recipe that everyone looks forward to on special Saturday mornings. I like to imagine that one day, my babies will be coming back home to visit us as adults and they will still be requesting pancakes for breakfast. These are perfect pancakes...seriously.
Bringing real plants inside the home brings an entirely different aura that fake plants just cannot touch. It’s not even close—a fake plant simply can’t compete. They can literally be like a breath of fresh air. I’m a big believer that the most beautiful things in existence can be found within nature. Plants add an element of simplistic beauty to the home. Along with bringing natural aesthetics inside, they also add a ton of personality to their surrounding environment. Besides having an array of plant choices to pick from, you’ll also find a vast selection of different ways to display them: go for a bohemian macramé plant hanger, the basic terracotta pot (which I’m currently loving), jars and glass dishes, ornate or colorful planters, or place inside of baskets. Create varying levels of height with your selections or let it stand alone. Whatever you go with, let your unique style and sense of decor show. The only rule is: you have to show it some love to keep it happy and alive.
