Happy New Year… three weeks ago! I didn’t intend to take quite such a long blogging break, but I’ve also decided to cut myself some slack and not apologize for it. Life is finally settling back into routine again, and I’m finding time for hobbies once more; even though blogging is one of the first… Continue reading Cheers to 2019!
Happy New Year! This is probably the last opportunity I have to sprinkle in some pictures from our Christmas card photo shoot, so I’m taking full advantage! All photographs are courtesy of Ashley Wilfong Photography (who I highly recommend!!). At the beginning of every year I usually make a few resolutions, and then I get… Continue reading Cheers to 2018!
Baby beluga in the deep blue sea Swim so wild and you swim so free Heaven above and the sea below And a little white whale on the go Baby beluga, baby beluga Is the water warm Is your mama home with you, so happy Way down yonder where the dolphins play Where you dive… Continue reading Baby Beluga in the Deep Blue Sea
It’s been about a year since my first tour of the new house, and a lot has changed since then! After living in apartments for the first six years of our marriage, the first year that we lived in this house was all about figuring out how to fill in the blank spaces. In year… Continue reading Home Sweet Home: In Progress Part 3
Happy New Year! Just checking in real quick to reflect a bit on one year ending and another one beginning. I know that if I don’t jot down some thoughts now, I’ll forget I even had them! 2016 was a huge year of firsts which required a lot of adjustment. We moved into our first… Continue reading Cheers to 2017!

It will be Amelia’s first road trip and nights away from home… wish us luck! It’s also our first holiday season in the new house and… Continue reading Deck the Halls
Now that 2016 is (more than) halfway over, how about we take a look at those optimistic new-year goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year? Always a good time to laugh at myself 🙂 Of course, I didn’t know I was pregnant yet, so my crafty priorities have shifted quite a lot… Continue reading 2016 Crafty Resolutions: Mid-Year Checkup!
It’s been a couple months since an update on the house, and lately there have been a few changes that are really making us feel at home. It’s no coincidence that all this productivity occurred the same month that my parents visited two weekends (and will be here again this weekend!) – they have so… Continue reading Home Sweet Home: In Progress Part 2
I haven’t shared an official “tour” of our new house, mostly because it still feels too unfinished. But after my parents visited last weekend I realized how much this new house feels like home after three months, whether it’s finished or not. So it seems like a good time for a few Before/During updates… and… Continue reading Home Sweet Home: In Progress
Let’s just pretend that the entire month of January is appropriate for talking about resolutions and goals, ok? It still counts as the start of the new year, even if there are only three days left in the month… Once again, I didn’t make a long list of resolutions for the new year, but I… Continue reading 2016 Crafty Resolutions
