A Year In Review = A Place To Take Pictures

A big lesson I’ve learned in life the past year is how important it is to lead yourself well.  It’s self sabotage to be too busy, disorganized, or to wait on others to point you in the right direction.  That classic quote “if you fail to plan then you plan to fail” rings absolutely true!  […]

Time To Lead Self…

Long ago when I began this little blog I documented spaces in our home I was being intentional with. I‘d share my efforts in creating haven or I’d share what we were consuming simply to document some of the things I felt were worth noting and/or remembering.

Utilized Well

No matter how many times I leave home for new adventures I seem to be drawn back to find what I was looking for. Of course both literal and metaphorically speaking… We seem to set out to find something, only to discover it’s within us along. I’ve felt at a different place in my life […]

The Road Home

Remember that song by the Judd’s “grandpa, tell me bout the good old days?” The lyrics went something like… life’s about changes, nothing ever stays the same. Every family faces transitions throughout their lifetime together. I’ve lived through enough of them now to have a bit of an understanding about how to cope. I remember […]

Baby Leif’s Home Birth Story

I shared in a recent social media post that I diffuse essential oils to keep the air hydrated and purified around our home. We have a wood burning fireplace so a diffuser/air purifier is a must to keep the air from getting too dry. I discovered some amazing oils from Huckberry a few years back […]

Autumn Aroma

I’ve been slow to type this post because there is so much I’ve thought about sharing from our girls getaway, it’s hard to narrow it down or know where to begin. This trip was in the making for months. I started noticing changes in my little girl over the past year, and as things developed […]

Cedar Creek Spa And A Girl Coming Of Age

It’s been so long since my last pregnancy I came to realize how much I’ve changed in my ways over the years… My taste and style hasn’t shifted much, but more the way I approach it has. With our first baby I remember Jared taking me shopping at the maternity store and helping me pick […]
