Girls Bedroom Makeover | Part 01

We have so many home projects that are either in the middle and not finished or ideas that we want to get done. Let’s just say I have been in full nesting mode since the last month and the list is long. It seems like it started pretty early this pregnancy, but I am just […]

Dear Blake

My dearest Blake, I find myself trying to catch my breath as we watch you turn 9 years old today. Your last year as a single digit and before you know it you and I will be navigating the teen years together. I am completely and totally not ready for that, by the way. Please […]

Father’s Day 2017

To the man who works late hours, comes home when everyone is already asleep and still wakes up the next day ready to play. To the man who ties shoes, wipes faces and finds matching socks for little feet. To the man who wipes tears, bandages scraped knees and gets little ones laughing again. To […]

Since April I have made it a point to start sharing more of my favorite things and latest finds with you. This started coming about in my Weekend Favorites series, but recently has turned into more of a monthly thing instead.

A Servant’s Heart

Before the kids and even before the beard, our romance began in a whirlwind. We locked eyes from across the room. He was just back from being in Alabama for two years and had a five year plan of doing life on his own before looking for a future spouse. I was just 19 and […]

DIY Laundry Detergent

I have to begin this post with the truth. This whole DIY laundry detergent thing? Never my idea. And actually when it was brought up I groaned and possibly rolled my eyes at the thought of making it ourselves. I mean, we are a busy family and sometimes it really is nice to just pay […]

Dear Blair

My dearest Blair,  These past four years have flown by and I find myself standing here watching you celebrate another birthday while trying to catch my breath. It has been a true joy and honor to watch you grow into the little young lady that you are. You are sugar and spice and your father […]

Bump Update at Twenty One Weeks

Unbelievable that we are already over half way through this pregnancy. Depending on the day, how I’m feeling and how hot it is outside it’s been both really quick and really long. Haha. I thought I would spend a little time today giving you a bump update at twenty one weeks as well as sharing […]

Kids Printable for Summer Goals

Let’s be honest. While I absolutely adore summer – the much needed break from schedules and early mornings – it can quickly become a cesspool of laziness and boredom. My husband and I both run our businesses from home which means we have to work even harder to keep some structure and boundaries in place to ensure […]

Documenting Magic in the Mundane

A little while ago I received a message from a follower friend on social media and she expressed how difficult she found taking pictures of her everyday was. She felt that their daily routine was the same without much change from day to day and it all centered around their home. She felt that taking pictures […]
