Two summers ago, our not-so-very-big house grew a little tighter and a whole lot more fun when my sister-in-law, Jourdan, and her husband, Andrew, came to stay with us for a month. Andrew was completing hospital rotations in his fourth year of medical school, and our family was fortunate that he got to do one at UVA.

I have a front entry table that I like to keep dressed for the season. A few weeks ago I chalk painted a rustic tree slice I was hanging onto after using it for my children's fifth birthday party.
