the last 4 months...

Gosh! 4 months. That went quickly. Let’s see if I remember how to do this…. Life got busy (doesn’t it always) and, to be completely honest, I gave up a little on blogging. I enjoyed it. But I felt a lot of pressure (self inflicted) to have perfect projects, perfect photos, perfect home tours… perfect. [continue…]

5 years

Tristan and I celebrate our 5th anniversary on Friday. 5 years! That’s hard to believe. But at the same time, it’s not. It’s weird to think about life before Tristan (even before Gabe). But has it really been 5 whole years since that evening in June? We have some really fun festivities this week, that [continue…]

sneak peak {my parent's house}

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a fun weekend. We spent ours with my Mom and Dad (lovingly called Bada and Boom), at their house. Their amazing house. They built it the year I got married. Moved in a couple months before the wedding. 5 years ago. In and out, it is so them and I [continue…]

May 202013

My poor little Canon dslr camera got wet. We had a really fun weekend with our dear friends at an outdoor festival. (Well, fun minus 15 stitches!) But my camera was a victim of the torrential downpour that caught us. It was in my backpack, in another bag, and it was pretty much the only [continue…]

a letter to my husband.

Dear Tristan, You’re so tolerant of my decorating and redecorating and rearranging and painting and repainting and crafting and creating and selling things on Craig’s List to buy different things on Craig’s List and bringing home junk and making it less like junk. In our nearly 5 years of marriage you’ve gotten so used to [continue…]

back again.

Oh, I was doing so good with regular posts and then… well… not so good. Oops! I don’t have much time to write today. I’m in the middle of spring cleaning. On Tuesday evening I got the urge to switch the living room and the dining room. And then while everything was chaotic anyway, I [continue…]

diy {alphabet fridge}

When you have a preschooler, your entire life is a learning experience. Your home is a classroom whether you intend to homeschool or not! I’ve been trying to find and incorporate some intentional learning into our routine. Gabriel is an active and energetic three year old boy, so I’m trying to find hands on learning, [continue…]

diy {road trip with a kid}

I’m here! I’m alive! Sorry for the silence! We’re getting ready for vacation (yay!) and blogging has been pushed to the back burner. I want to share some things I’ve done to get ready for our road trip. Gabe does quite well in the car, but even I can get antsy siting for consecutive hours. [continue…]

fall fun

Last year, when autumn, Thanksgiving and Christmas snuck up on me, I wished I had spent a little time thinking about how I wanted to decorate and things I wanted to do and make. By the time I thought about an advent calendar, it was already a good week into December! It was then that [continue…]
