Our Place in the Evening

I realized the other day that I’ve never shown our house in the evening.  Usually I have my light boxes and we are shooting bright white interiors with loads of natural light filtering in.  There’s something pretty magical about light and shadow, especially in a room and [...]

25 Things

1.  I’m convinced I have sort of lost my mind. 2.  No, really. 3.  I seem to misplace my head these days, and that’s just the start. 4. My keys and my phone charger–well, they’re even worse off than my head. 5.  Is that an age thing?  I’m only 32 for [...]

Setting up Our School Room & Truths We’ve Learned

Three years ago, when we began homeschooling, I didn’t know how it would all turn out.  Didn’t know if we would always homeschool or if I’d go red with rage and lock myself in a closet somewhere. I still don’t. We will re-evaluate from year to year, and for [...]

Opportunity

Last week was tough. There have been big decisions weighing on my mind and my heart.  The last few months seem to have picked me up and whipped me around with the winds, and while there is certainty in my life, there has also been question. The most important things are not in [...]

What I Love About You…

To my littlest. I hope your birthday was so much fun, and was a time you’ll remember fondly. I love your quiet moments.  You can be so calm and reflective.  You were my lap baby, the one who likes to hold my hand when we walk into a store or into a crowded room.  I love how [...]

Our Week in Instagram

The last couple of weeks have been a happy blur, filled with parties and life and work and some stress, but I am so grateful for it all.  I wanted to share some snippets from our Instagram account to document them all here… Some reclaimed canvas bags we will be carrying in the [...]

Today…

Today I have the day to all to myself. I slept in until 9. I had breakfast in bed, boiled eggs and a whole grain waffle.  The kitchen is still gutted so quick, healthful food is the key.  I’ve been sick all week so today I gave myself permission to be ultra-lazy. I watched a [...]

Health/Weight Loss Update

Well you know how you feel when you get punched in the face? I’ve got a bit of that going on, in the way of a sinus infection disguised as a head/face bulldozer. I’ve used my essential oils and medicine and all the things, but I still feel like a woodpecker is attacking my [...]

Make Room: the 2014 Toyota Highlander

We had a blast last year on our May trip to the beach–it’s the perfect time of the year to go, and so when Southeastern Toyota asked if we wanted to “make room” by testing out the 2014 Highlander, I said sure thing! We were planning a little beach getaway for [...]

When Life Gets Hard

Someone forgot to tell me. That even when things are good, even when there’s so much to be grateful for, life gets hard.   It’s messy.  It’s overwhelming, unforgiving even.  Days float along and if we’re lucky, we see life for what it really is. [...]

Think Big

There’s so much on my mind. So much I want to say, and so much I need to work through.  I have this little dream, and it just won’t let me shake it off any longer. Well, I have lots of dreams, and sometimes I just make notes of them, jotting the wish down on paper so as [...]

South Africa, Part 4

Psst…first Read Part 1, Part 2, & Part 3 of our trip to South Africa…. *********************************** I had packed the night before, slowly wrapping up each piece of my clothing, my mind wandering. To say that Africa had moved me was an understatement, and I [...]

South Africa, Part 2

If you missed Part 1, Click Here! We ended our first night at Sabi Sabi with a delicious dinner around campfire and belly laughs with new friends from nearby and those far away (we miss you, Joffers!). Crawling in the slick sheets never felt so good, and I felt like the minute my head [...]

Crooked Photos & Jet Lag

Now before I begin, let me give you some background. Our trip to South Africa was amazing (and I promise I’m filling you in soon!), and it was busy, busy.  We landed in Johannesburg on the 1st of May (after leaving April 30th), had an hour to shower before the welcome dinner. [...]

Holiday Weekends

Around here, Easter holidays are slow. They are lazy and the sweet tea is paired with plenty of porch time.  We do egg hunts & prayer & ham & egg dyeing. Even when we only have 4 eggs left. #momfail We do bows and photos and sometimes we get haircuts ahead of time. [...]

The Only Story

I was in my freshman year of college, dreading speech class that day.  The class wasn’t boring or useless, because I recognize the value of speaking well, but it was just blah most days.  We spoke about widgets (what’s a widget anyway?!), and things that didn’t [...]

Painting & Room Makeovers

Last week was a blur.  We spent the seeking working on a special makeover for Julie.  It was a ton of fun, and we were so grateful to work on a space for one of our employees and best friends. We created such a fun space for her (I think!), and had all hands on deck to make it [...]

25 Things (Running a Creative Business)

It’s been a while!  I love these list-posts and random brain dumping is good for my soul. Truly. Since we’ve been talking creative business lately, I thought we’d bring back 25 Things with a creative bang… 1.  Business is thrilling. 2.  No, really. 3.  I [...]

Change is in the Air…More than Ever

It’s one of those days when I cannot focus on one thing at a time for anticipation of the next thing entering my brain. Behind the scenes today, we’re getting ready for a major blog/site update (more on that below).  But every single day the last few months, I’m [...]
