Valentine’s Day Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Who doesn’t like chocolate covered strawberries, especially on Valentine’s Day? Last year, I made several orders of these but just the traditional chocolate and white chocolate ones.

Hi! My name is Carrie. A Hoosier native. I was born and raised in the country. I had a humble upbringing raised by my grandparents who adopted me as their own at a very young age. My mom was a painter, gardener, seamstress, baker. A maker. A creator. I remember watching her simultaneously baking fresh bread and canning tomatoes that she grew in her garden. I learned so much from her and I am so grateful. Well, except gardening. I can’t keep anything green alive for more than a couple weeks. 😭😂 I believe I got my creativity and resourcefulness from her and I thank her for that often.

I am a boy mom. ❤️

I enjoy decorating and restyling our house to make it ours. My goal is to inspire you to make the most of what you have and finding YOUR style that fits YOUR budget.

I find beauty in all things. My style is clean, simple, and elegant with a touch a modern farmhouse. When I have free time you’ll find me baking, building, crafting, or painting. Chances are, if I’m painting furniture the color is white. I love fresh flowers. The smell of fresh cut grass. The scent of lilac. I am a country girl at heart ❤️. I believe in rolling up your sleeves and getting things done. I’m a doer. A hard worker.

On my blog you will find all the things I am passionate about. I hope you enjoy my tutorials and find inspiration in my posts. Thank you for stopping by. Xo
