We spend a lot of time in our kitchens and think they should be beautiful! This kitchen features antique white cabinets with brown and black granite, and copper lanterns (the lanterns are actually outdoor lanterns, but their scale works well over this eat-in breakfast bar). We hit HomeGoods for canisters, cutting boards, and other storage and decor pieces to finish off the space. {Sponsored by HomeGoods} by Mgauna

Picture PerfectThe talented family and newborn photographer, Emily Sara, shares her three tips on taking great family photos. 1.) Add an unexpected touch to any group photo with lollipops, chairs, blankets, wagons, or balloons.  2.) The location should have meaning. A few ideas to get you started: playrooms, favorite backyard hiking trails, or the front porch. 3.) Let kids be kids. Instead of overly posed photos, give the kids toys to play with, make them laugh, let them fuss, and then capture those moments. Life is never perfect! by lora

The question, "What are we having for dinner?" is quite often followed closely by, "What are we having with dinner?" Roasted vegetables are one of our favorite answers to the question of the quick weeknight side dish, and my latest pick for roasted goodness is broccoli. This recipe takes just a few minutes to throw into the oven and it emerges toasty around the edges and garlicky and a little spicy, if you like. by rhoda

Stately antebellum mansion in Milledgeville Georgia.It seemed that the number of columns indicated the owners wealth. Aw, heck, why not have columns on all sides? (Milledgeville) There were inviting front porches everywhere we turned, and straight-backed rocking chairs adorned many of them. Even the simplest historic homes that just had a few posts holding up the porch roof rather than a row of Grecian columns still had a row of rockers out front. And notice the windows - as big as the door... by tara

Window Cleaner:  ¼ cup vinegar,  ½ teaspoon natural liquid soap,  2 cups water.    Put all ingredients in a spray bottle and shake to blend. To use the cleaner, spray onto the glass, covering as much as you can finish wiping in a few minutes at a time, scrub as needed with the rough side of a kitchen sponge, and squeegee off. Use a cotton cleaning cloth to dry off the blade of the squeegee between swipes. by ericka
