The Month of Peaches

August. My birth month. Also the month that so many kids dread, because it means school is starting. Growing up, it seemed like school always started on my birthday. Now as an adult, August doesn’t seem so bad. My favorite part–it means FALL IS COMING! I love fall. So while I’ll try to keep this inspiration board in summertime vibe, it’s hard to not let some Fall creep in. 😉 It also means–Peaches! Peach everything in August! As always, I hope you enjoy!



“August feels like a hinge in the year. Swing backwards and summer is there, swing forward and fall is waiting. I’m in the swing forward camp. I’m never sorry to see the summer end, although I’ll miss the peaches. I’m ready for sweaters and socks and new suede shoes.”

Once Upon A Summer: A Mood Board

I’m not real sure what’s happened to the summer, it’s almost the end of July! It’s been a good, though hot, summer. I have found it a little hard to stay motivated and inspired lately. What can I say, I’m a cool weather girl, it’s what makes me feel creative and alive, and this heat just zaps me of any creative juices or motivation. About 11:30 at night I start to come alive! 🌙

I’m posting these things today in hopes of a kick of inspiration! Hope y’all enjoy!










Happy Saturday!

Hope you’ve enjoyed and found a little inspiration yourself! What would you like to see me post about here on A Spotted Heart?

Happy April!

Spring Mood Board

It’s March ya’ll!! How did that happen?! I must say, I’m really glad to see Spring this year for the pure fact that it means One Cute Cowboy is finally done with wheat pasture cattle. He’s been more or less gone all winter long taking care of cattle, so it’s nice to have him home more often. 

I’ve been thinking a lot about simplifying (read as: decluttering.) It’s hard because, let’s face it, I like stuff. I like knick -knacks and trinkets and sometimes I feel like Ariel in the Little Mermaid. But I truly look forward to making this happen, slowly but surely, this spring!  I think that’s reflected in this mood board. Simple, clean-cut spaces, and of course tons of gardening things coming to mind this month as I prep my flowerbeds and garden.  It’s my favorite part of spring! What’s yours? Enjoy!


Happy Spring Everyone!

February Mood Board

February’s felt like winter and spring. Isn’t that supposed to be March? I’ve enjoyed it none-the-less. Anyhow, these are the things that have inspired me this month. What are some of yours? 




Being Thankful: A November Mood Board

When November rolls around, everyone starts to remember and make lists of what they’re most thankful for. I love to see those, from the smallest things to the biggest things people are thankful for in their lives. This last week has made me long for those thankful posts on social media. It’s heart-breaking to see what’s been going on in our country in response to our new President-elect. One thing I keep at the forefront of my mind is, God is good, all the time. I’m holding that mantra especially close as we go into the next few months. I have great hope. This isn’t to be a political post, but a human post. I pray that each one of you keep your inspirations close, your eyes bright, and your hearts open. Remember we’re all in this together no matter which side you’re on. With that said, here are the things that are inspiring me, keeping me motivated, and keeping my mind creatively active. I’d love to know what all of you are inspired by! What are some of your daily mantras? 








I Put A Spell On You: An October Mood Board

I love the month of October! Fall is usually in full swing and I’ll just admit it, I love Halloween. Not in the “let’s go get costumes and scare people” type way, but in the pumpkins and black cats, and magic that can happen in October. I can’t tell you how many times I will watch Hocus Pocus until October 31st. Some things never change. But here are the things that are inspiring and making me smile this month. This was the month that OneCuteCowboy proposed, so it’s a special month to me regardless of all the rest. Hope you enjoy and will share some of your inspirations this month! 









Friday Favorites: All the Things 

Friday’s are for sharing favorites, and this Friday I want all the things!  My favorite season is underway and all kinds of cute things are popping up on my Instagram feed and emails! Can’t wait to get my hands on some of these fall goodies! You’ll recognize some of the shops/brands. Enjoy my Friday favorites that I’m seriously crushing on!

You guys! I am in love with this new top designed by the sweet gal, Geena, over at Fit On The Farm, one of my favorite instagramers! They’ll b sold through Redford Ranch Style, also a great insta to follow! This will be perfect for Fall!


I was so excited to see Pioneer Woman was adding to her line. I absolutely love these mugs! They’d be perfect for my morning tea and Riley’s morning coffee. Not to mention the beautiful Fall colors. 

I’m loving my new sign from OkieWild! Sam sent this to me for my birthday, and it’s been my motivation all week. She has some great ideas brewing! 


Anyone that knows me knows I’m a sucker for World Market and kitschy kitchen stuff. Also used to be purely a dog person, but marriage does weird things to you, and in short, I’m now a cat person too. I can’t get over how cute these measuring cups are and sponge holder are. They remind me of my sweet Bumpercat. 


Who wouldn’t love this Kate Spade “Dalmatian” tea pot. 🙂  I spotted this last spring and have been dreaming of it ever since. 

This wraps up my Friday favorites! What are some of your current favorites? 

August Birthday Moods

August is my birthday month! I’ll be 30 in a little over ten days. THIRTY! That used to seem so far away…there’s a lot in year 30 I want to do and be. I’m proud of where I’m at in life, and the person I’ve become. Here are some things that are inspiring me, keeping me inspired, and things that I’ve fallen for. August has always been a month I love because it’s on the verge of becoming Fall. Here’s to a beautiful birthday month!
