Lake. Life. Love.
Between appointments and new listings this weekend, I managed to have an amazing time with my family. Balance is tough. I'm a mother of two, a wife, a full time+ real estate agent, a musician, a community volunteer. Every single one of these things is so important to me (some more than others). It is so easy to let my career slip ahead of my valued time with family. After all, how can I be there for them in all the ways that I want to if I can't provide for them? So when I share these photos, the happy faces and the fun, Im not sharing the struggle that happens between the lines. That's the stuff that isn't so important, it's the stuff I have to shake off. It's the stuff that makes these smiles even sweeter!
Tip of the week
The Best Indoor Trees for Your Home
Artificial plants may never die, but having live plants in your home will make your home look and feel better. Nothing brings life into a home better than well-maintained greenery. Most indoor trees are easy to take care of and only need adequate water and a spot where they'll get enough light. You can fill your home with trees or just add enough to a room to beautify empty space. Here are the best indoor plants to add life and coziness to your home.
1. Fiddle Leaf Fig
You probably have a friend who has a Fiddle Leaf Fig tree in their home right now, and for good reason. They only need regular watering and indirect light, and are the perfect size to add a touch of greenery to a room. Be sure not to overwater this tree, as it will drop leaves quickly.
2. Weeping Fig
This tree is one of the most popular indoor trees. It has slightly arching branches and can fill out quite well if taken care of. Like the Fiddle Leaf, it prefers indirect light but it doesn't like cold drafts or hot, dry air. This tree is best kept away from doors and A/C vents. The Weeping Fig is known to shed less than a quarter of its leaves in the fall and sprout them again in the spring, so keep that in mind when buying one.
3. Areca Palm
If you want to add a beachy vibe to your home, this feathery palm will do just that. It thrives in bright spaces and can grow up to 10 inches in a year, reaching 6-7 feet indoors. In the spring and summer, the Areca Palm likes light, constant moisture. During the winter months, it works best to let it dry out a bit between waterings.
4. Rubber Tree
The Rubber Tree is one of the easiest to grow indoors. If you want a darker-colored plant, consider this tree that only requires moderate light. Occasional pruning will help the tree look its best, but be sure to wear gardening gloves to keep the sap off of your fingers.
5. Ponytail Palm
If remembering to water plants isn't your forte, this is the plant for you. The Ponytail Palm stores moisture in its base so it will be just fine if you forget a week or two of watering. The plant has long, strappy leaves that add the perfect touch to a contemporary room. It prefers indirect, bright light and is slow-growing.
6. Lacy Leaf Philodendron
If you're looking for an easy plant that will live long, this is the one for you. With massive glossy leaves, this philodendron can grow up to 6 feet wide, so keep this one in mind if you have a large space to fill. This plant only needs watered when the soil becomes dry and requires moderate light.
