…a day in the life

Onto my depression. Just kidding. Not really, but third week in February and I'm just about ready to laugh through the worst month of the year that can tear me down to tears. In this spirit, I thought it would be kinda funny to post pictures of my daily life in the house that you usually see only in an organized and clever light. I remember getting lovely comments after my first piece of press, but I also remember some comments about how obnoxiously pretty my house looks. I was more frustrated than anything because, hello mean-people, it was a photoshoot of course I put away the dirty laundry  and threw away the juice boxes lining the interior of the house!

Here's a peek at a day in the life in our nest. Feel free to laugh. Oh, and be aware that Ollie and Owen make a big showing here.

We try not to take ourselves too seriously around here.

…merry everything

In case things go off the rails and my children do not let me get near a computer this week, I wanted to wish you a very merry Christmas. Many of you I have not met, but I think about you everyday and am grateful for your friendship. May you feel peace and love in your home this Christmas. And if that is too hard, that's okay, may you find a few minutes alone to sit down and take a few deep breaths and know that no matter what happened this year you are just fine - more than fine - you are worthy just because you were born. You deserve good things and a safe and cozy space to call your own. We all do.

…Romantic Country Magazine!

I have been waiting a year to show you images of the holiday tea party I threw before Christmas last year. I was given the idea from a client of mine. I had such fun picking out all my mixed and matched vintage tea cups, saucers, plates and decor.

The photos were published in Romantic Homes Magazine and the issue is on shelves now!

Without further ado!
