Philip Edward

Our baby boy made his arrival last Friday and we couldn't be more smitten. I don't think I will ever get over how beautiful God made this whole child-bearing process. Waking up one morning as if it was just any other day, then ending the day with a new baby in my arms.
Little Philip and I are spending lots of time snuggling, nursing, burping, and resting. Because of this, it may get a little quiet around here while we get into the groove of things. In case you are itching for baby pictures, I'm sure there will be a plethora of them on instagram.

Beeswax Candles

I've always wanted to try my hand at making candles, so when my friend Rebekah pointed out that beeswax candles aid in cleaning the air, I became slightly obsessed. After all, cleaning and I go hand in hand now.

The vintage Jell-O molds I thrifted made the perfect candle container. To save money, I thought I would attempt to make my own candle wicks. That completely failed. If you end up making your own candle, spend the few extra dollars to buy the pre-made candle wicks - you won't regret it.

I posted a full tutorial over on Live Simply. Check it out here.

Cleaning Frenzy

As a kid, I always thought dust bunnies and dust mites were the same; a harmless bundle of dust that collected under furniture. I recently just discovered that dust mites were not dust bunnies and they are not, in fact, necessarily harmless or lifeless. Seriously, I had no idea dust mites were actual real life living creatures.

As you can imagine, I went into a sort of dust panic. Within days I was dusting every surface of my house then promptly cleaning the floors. I spent one afternoon moving every piece of furniture to rid every crevice of any trace of dust. Two days later, the dust was back and the battle began again.

I have to say that I oddly enjoy this level of nesting. I am embracing this shift of focus from organizing to cleaning because, well... if we're being honest, it doesn't happen to this extent as often as it should. Albeit, my husband and children aren't sure what to think of this frantic cleaning lady that has moved in but I'm welcoming her with open arms.
