How I Mom

cozy mom

The Christmas tree is going up, the kids are making their Christmas lists, school papers are coming home, invitations are coming in, more decorations are coming out and suddenly instead of looking festive and inviting, our home feels overwhelming and I want to stretch out my arms and slide everything from every surface into the trash can and then rub my hands together with great satisfaction and a grinchy laugh.

It’s times like these when I don’t need “Ten tips on how to store Legos” I don’t need a better organizing system, but a fresh mindset on creating a warm inviting home–AS A MOM.

Today only, the Cozy Minimalist MOM online program (this is different from the decorating course!) is 50% off– only $19.50 with code: COZYMOM

We created this program back when my house was getting new ceilings and trim so we filmed it at a friend’s house–it’s all video! Come check it out!


And, of course, if you haven’t checked out the Cozy Minimalist (decorating program) yet, you can still get both courses for the price of one–more information here. Sale ends tonight!

But you know exactly what I’m talking about. You’ve probably counted too. And if you haven’t, you are adding […]

18 Summers. How Many Do You Have Left?

the days are long but the years are short

  It’s the backwards count down that I make myself do every year. We have to. It’s horrible and also a wonderful reminder. Our oldest has 3 summers (I started counting the one after the senior year, I’m fooling myself counting that one, I know). The middle son has 6 more summers. Our youngest has […]

DIY Frame Wallpaper

This is a sponsored post by ScotchBlueTM Painter’s Tape and Social Chorus, as always words, opinions and imperfect decorating are mine all mine. I absolutely love this project and I’ve wanted to try it forever! A few years ago I saw this beautiful Graham and Brown wallpaper in person. I knew right then that I wanted […]

Everything I Never Expected About Being A Mother


Ten years ago my sister stood outside our average dream home and snapped these pictures. My boys were little once too, even though I can’t prove on cute instagram photos much to my dismay. I’m one of those girls who always wanted to be a mom. I always knew I would be. However I always […]
