over the past year, many people started to take a closer look at their homes, their families + their lives. one day a few months into the pandemic, ryan was working from home + outside walking around while talking. as i watched, i started to imagine a place for him to sit. when we bought […]
finally, a unique piece of art that reflects who you are + what you love at little to no cost to you. no one else will have the exact same piece as you + it can …
if you’ve been following us on social media this past month, you may have seen a few quick posts about our decorations for Christmas. what started as a way of pacing ourselves with -all- the decorations that are waiting to be unpacked from our holiday closet each year, has grown into an intentional family tradition […]
‘pressed to the sounds of my family…at play, at rest, happy + well in our blest nest This time of year is the best. Better known as the actual eleventh hour of the year, November brings such plentiful opportunities to pause + reflect. A time to observe the dramatic, changing leaves; the fall folding into […]
The way our two littles love books, setting up a loosely themed reading center is a no brainer every month, plus, it doubles as seasonal decor. Once the book nook is decked out, stocked with our favorite titles + a few new ones too, the house is basically decorated.
the season is officially upon us—! Though I really don’t visit Starbucks–for coffee–as much as I used to, there are still plenty of other reasons to stop by, like breakfast sandwiches + fun seasonal cake pops for a special treat after school. Since receiving an espresso machine as a Christmas gift, I simply can’t justify […]
last year my sweet crew surprised me with a bike ride along the beltline. It was a beautiful day spent in the sun + we enjoyed all the stops along the way from krog to ponce to piedmont park + back again for pinwheels + popsicles it was full of fun + treats. …it was […]
I have this thing…an appreciation for aesthetically pleasing combinations, with color, light, the way things are arranged + how they play off each other. So, when I try to explain how much I enjoy the endless combinations of wrapping paper + ribbon, well, forgive me if I write a book. For much of my youth, […]
There is not much else that makes me feel so “at home” as the comfort a little lamp can provide.
I looked forward to seeing the haul we would soon have spread across the kitchen countertops that magically made our vacation house our home away from home.
it seemed the weather had wrapped up further productions for the season, though we were not without loss. Severe weather in the wee hours of Good Friday morning left us with a mess on our hands; amidst the havoc of a few fallen trees, was our beloved tiny house laid out in a heap.
my days in these first three months of 2019 have been hit + miss for early (sane) mornings, so as long as I stick to getting at least one devotional read with/preferably before breakfast, I am set for a great day with spiritual priorities in order.
The most passion-filled moments were in the arrival + departure, as they always are. The journey of coming + going deeply stirs my soul.
Despite chilly winter weather, we have found porch time in these last three months. . . right here beside the family room fireplace! This spot may not offer a full retreat from the distractions of the household chores as our time spent on the porch, but when a moment is needed to unwind or refocus, […]
When I decided on a name for this blog, it just made sense to me to pair these two things I love, porches + pillowfights, to capture the nature of what I planned to ponder + share here. Articulating just why I love these two is kind of the purpose of my little corner on […]
