The Lively Cottage is a mommy lifestyle blog. I am a happy wife and a full-time mom to two sweet (and busy!) little boys…and there is rarely a dull moment in our little house! This blog is my creative outlet so you will see lots of pretty pictures and lots of crafty things. My hope is that the ideas I share (which are both my own and my favorite Pinterest finds) will inspire you and enhance your everyday life. The ideas are simple, fun, and don’t require perfection. So grab a cup of coffee and have a look around. Thanks for stopping by!
