Welcome to Noting Grace!
I am so glad you are here. My hope is to encourage, inspire and provide you with all the tools to help you create a home with intention that you love to live in.
It all started when I got the best gig ever!
Trent and I met at Belmont University while pursuing our music careers. We had stars in our eyes and were ready to share our gifts to the world.
Living in major music metropolises like Nashville, LA and Vegas, we went were the music took us. Until it all changed for me.
That moment was so distinctive that it has left an indelible mark on my heart. I had just finished singing with my all-time favorite singer. A true once in a lifetime event. I knew that I had reached my pinnacle and it couldn't get any better than this!
A new job was calling my name. So, I put my microphone in the stand and exited stage left to become musician turned momma. Leaving that performance world, I needed a way to funnel all that creativity into a new place.
Then we bought a new house and found ourselves with lots of empty rooms and equally empty pockets to fill them with.
Ever since I was a little girl, I loved playing house, setting up house, decorating houses and drawing houses. I think I rearranged my room at least once a month – and I still feel the itch to switch up a space today.
Realizing I wasn’t the only one struggling to create a beautiful home with intention, I created Noting Grace to encourage and inspire you - all within a tight budget like we lived on.
My husband Trent and I have always been thrifty, looking for ways to save a buck. While I dream of having high end decor, my budget has never allowed for it, so I found ways to recreate a look I love at a price I can afford.
This has stretched us to learn new things, like wood working, tiling, electricity and much more.
You know where this is going.
Through this learning process, we are eager to share our tips we find with you. We know that having the home of our dreams isn’t a reality for most of us, but you can create a home you love with a little bit of ingenuity.
When I share room reveals, or images of my home with you, know that the picture isn’t perfect.
Many hours, mess ups, and redos were done to get create that look. If you could look behind the lens, you would see all the papers, shoes, and junk pushed aside to get that shot.
You see, we’re just like you.
One question we often get asked is "How do you keep your house so clean all the time with 2 boys?" Well, we don't!
We live in our home and it’s certainly not perfect. I think that’s why we love finding items that are less than – items with character. Life is meant to be enjoyed despite this constant goal I battle to reach perfection. I hope to provide you with all the tools to help you create a home with intention that you love to live in while giving you grace when it's not perfect.
Not only do we hope to inspire you, but we want to connect with you. We are honored to read each and every comment you leave. You can always find behind the scene shenanigans over on our Instagram Page, or you can sign up for our emails so you don’t miss a post.
There is “Beauty in the Blemishes” and we hope to help you find it!
