you don’t have to have a traditional porch at your dwelling to enjoy a peaceful porch view; it can often be found in nature.
now for more than one reason, i can’t wait to get back on a plane!
after i return home from a little time away, i really look forward to taking a moment to savor that first breakfast back at home on the porch— here everything seems brighter, a bit fresher + somehow…different.
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, […]
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.
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 […]
saturday was the day we have been waiting for! perfect weather + time to do many of the things we love together.
