those were the sweet controlled little closeups that capture the very first, super temporary phase one of bringing in all my pretty and sitting it around knowing that all most all if it will change because some of the furniture won’t even be in this room and anyway, I never leave it the way I first put it but who cares if I need to change it again because this is fun!

Now, let’s look at the full room views (you’ll see why I started with the closeups) this room still needs work and has big gaps and isn’t cohesive yet but it’s nice to see some far away shots too…

My Friends Wrote Books & I Want You To Have Them, The Books, Not the Friends, But That Would Be Fun Too (A Giveaway)


THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED I think it’s time for some intention, encouragement and best of all laughter. How about a giveaway of three fresh new books that I really think you will love?! Before I start do you know that I think of my friends in two groups? Not ‘online friends’ and ‘in real life […]

  My husband’s grandfather died and we are celebrating his long, fully-lived life yesterday and today–my husband and his cousin are giving the eulogy. This man had SO. MANY. FRIENDS. And taught just about the entire town at their local church. His children (my husband’s mom and her sister and brother) had a flower arrangement […]

The Almost Extinction of the Drop-In


    It had been years. I’ve become so accustomed to emailing and texting and long pre-planned get-togethers on the calendar that the drop-in had become almost obsolete in my life. Until that day when I was gifted with a drop-in visit. Last winter I had the biggest deadline of my life. I quarantined myself, […]

Laundry Room Must-Haves

laundry room

30 Minute Guest Room Makeover

guest room ideas

The guest room, formerly known as a 15-year-old boy’s room was seriously lacking in style, furniture and general put-togetherness. I wasn’t ready to invest in a bed or anything for that matter but I did have a mattress, rug, thrifted chair, dresser and fun streamers. And a guest on the way. I wanted a quick, […]

cottage weekend

Every time I say yes to doing something socially, I freak out a little bit before said social event. Last weekend was no different. Angela invited a few friends to her cottage and I wanted to go so badly, but also, there’s a part of me that always feels dread the closer that a social […]
