I'm Courtney Mitchell
Welcome to the Carolina Farmhouse!
I am a 33 year old wife and mother, who is way too sassy to be Betty Crocker but I’m trying my darndest to be domesticated and demure. Just kidding, I gave up on that a long time ago. I brake for squirrels, old houses and Mexican restaurants. I also love fresh flowers.
I love being a homemaker in our 1917’s farmhouse in the upstate of South Carolina. I am a trophy wife to Chris (KIDDING) and we have been married for 10 years. We have four beautiful children. Three Irish triplets…all born 12 months apart in the month of April and our little caboose, Hollis who was also born in April…just 5 years after her older siblings. That’s also why I have gray hairs and wrinkles.
Between feeding and homeschooling our children, wrangling our brood of 32 chickens, two crazy dogs, and our ungodly amount of cats, I try to find time to work on home projects. Transforming spaces gives me a high and I’m a sucker for a good before and after. I am passionate about historic preservation and making this ole house shine again is a big goal of mine.
I also am so in love with Jesus. Speaking of a good before and after…the work He has done in my heart is nothing short of amazing. So you will hear about the things He is teaching me and my heart for this hurting world here too.
I’m so glad you’ve come to my little corner of the internet! I truly do love the friends you meet through the world wide web. I will be honest and say I’m much better at responding and being more personal on Instagram, so feel free to give me a follow there and say hello! You can also follow me on YouTube for weekly videos from our little farmhouse!
