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 …
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, […]
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.
saturday was the day we have been waiting for! perfect weather + time to do many of the things we love together.
“You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit”
Sushi Friday has been going on for a while in our nest, but it has become a habit upon calling Georgia home.
Self-care tip of the week: Enjoy a nice, long bath! …a detox bath to be sure. The formula below is one that is said to draws toxins out of the body while giving a deep sense of relaxation. Someone out there can explain the science to this, as it may sound redundant, a bath relaxing, […]
Happy Friday! I’m sharing a few thoughts on self-care today. When we get caught up in life’s responsibilities, be it work or family, friends or those in need, the importance of caring for ourselves can be easily lost in the shuffle—this is no secret! My own personal care checklist has been ever evolving since I […]
The addition of this joggling board to our porch has been a momentous one! I have a handful of vivid memories from growing up in Charleston, joggling with cousins + friends, so having one now on our porch to share with our family is a treasure + a treat! The gift arrived a few days […]
One of the things I love most about being in my thirties is knowing exactly what I like. Now, don’t let me fool you, there are a great many things I still do not know, in particular I still have trouble deciding what to cook/pickup tonight for dinner + which chore I should do first […]
We just celebrated our first Christmas in Georgia; it was enjoyable, relaxed + full of the magical wonder that children bring, along with a few surprises too. We wanted to keep things minimalist as possible simply because we are too blessed to want anything + are trying to teach the girls early + often about […]
Since moving in this past summer, our “rocking chair” (shallow) porch has been at the front of my mind, although at the bottom of the need to-do list. Slowly + patiently I have added elements to the porch while spending twice as much time dreaming up the look + feel of our cozy “rocking chair” […]
When I lived with my parents, there was a neighbor of ours who loved to start the BOO’s going in the neighborhood, except these were always welcome and festive boos. A simple poem / ghost would turn up on our front door or somewhere on the porch with a spooky fun Halloween treat. The […]
This morning we have a book review! We recently picked up a handful of Halloween reads from the stacks…I have learned in my few short years of mothering that if it is seasonal books you want, the early bird gets the worm. My favorite from this most recent haul is “Room on the Broom”, by […]
