Our son has had a lot of health issues and sickness since he was young and we’ve battled back and forth with it being contributed to his diet.  Since nutrition and wellness is such an overwhelming topic to face we’ve tried to pace ourselves and cast a vision of better overall health and more mindfulness […]

A Tip That Minds Mealtime

Summer is on us and the bugs are breaking out!  It’s all fun and games when you’re catching fireflies in your mason jar, but what about those pesky mosquitos that won’t let you enjoy your play?  Well I’ve learned to invest in insect repellent.  It makes those summer night’s in the backyard so much better!

Citronella Summer… Keep The Bugs Away From Your Backyard

This weekend one of my sweet friends brought me over an aloe vera plant while I was away from home and when I returned there it was sitting on the back porch… nothing attached.  Just a plastic pot with gorgeous greenery growing from it.  You know what made it so special?  I had mentioned to […]

5 Quotes That Keep You Caring

My husband and I built our home a few years ago and we didn’t think about having our “own” spaces…  Neither of us necessarily work from home so it just didn’t cross our minds.  However, as we’ve learned through this season of our life…(wild ones running everywhere) it’s important to have a place of our […]

How to own your day…3 things your work space needs to get with it!

For the last year Jared and I have been focusing a lot on our finances and stewarding our money better.  It’s been on our hearts to be good managers of our money and not have any debt.  That being said I have had to learn to budget.  It’s been a long process and I’m still […]

Gifts..

Gathering Life + Love

Lately I’ve been enjoying a great book called “The Hidden Art of Homemaking” by Edith Shaeffer.  It is a lovely book about how to be creative in your home and make the everyday “mundane” things beautiful and purposeful.  It has inspired me greatly in an area I already knew was important.  It’s about the little […]

“Hidden Art” In The Home

It seems every little boys dream is to have a bunk bed… of course they need to have something to climb and jump from indoors too right?  Our boys definitely do. 😉  For some reason it took me forever to get inspired with how to style their room.  Sometimes that happens.  I think I just […]

Bunks + Blue… The Boys’ Room

I’m so lucky to be part of an Irish brood and its fun to make the little things special for them… I’m preparing an Irish celebration for our family and making some traditional Irish food.  One of my favorite things is dessert, so I had to share this pistachio cake!  I don’t know for sure […]

A Bit Of Irish Luck …

When a new season approaches I look forward to the change of scenery.  The change outdoors usually ushers a change indoors too!   Each month of the year I choose a specific design project or room to work on, but during the transitional  months (March, June, Sept, and Dec), I focus on seasonal updating.
