Meet Kerri

Hi! Thank you for stopping by to visit! My name is Kerri and I started blogging in 2009 when my second daughter was born. Since then I have returned to teaching full time in the classroom but I still have a passion for blogging.
I love coffee, all things rustic, vintage, clean eating and simple living.

I was BOO'd at school! And fortunately my fellow teacher was not scaring or insulting me! She (even though it is a secret we have an all female faculty so it is safe to assume it is a she)left a wonderful Halloween bag filled with lots of treats for my students and my own little girls!

Have you heard of this tradition? I had never heard of this until my parents moved into their Retirement Community four years ago.

It is Secret Santa but for Halloween. You BOO someone in secret, leaving them a bag of treats. Once you have been BOO'd, you hang a BOO sign on your door and BOO someone else!

Morrocccan Inspiration

Ok, I am not ashamed to admit it. I am an HGTV junkie. It is the ONLY station I watch. And my favorite show is House Hunters. I have even convinced myself that it is educational. Aside from gathering great creative ideas and inspiration, I have learned so much about other cultures when House Hunters goes International.

One episode in particular features Maryam Montague, a human rights advocate who moved her family from the United States to Marrakech, Morroco. She and her husband have built a gorgeous guest retreat, Peacock Pavilions and developed an online shopping store, Red Thread Souk filled with beautiful Morroccan items for the home.

I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend!
