  • Flamingo, Flamingo, Flamingo

    For the past two years, Isabelle has dressed up as a pink flamingo for trick-or-trick (AKA: her “favorite game”). I thought it was only fitting to throw her a flamingo party for her birthday this year. I’ve had ideas swarming around my head for a few weeks and have finally began executing them this week […]

  • Paint Decisions

    white paint colors, light gray paint, swatches

    Choosing paint colors was on the top of my priority list for our new place, so as soon as we moved in, I got straight to work painting multiple samples on every wall. After weeks of deliberating (this one is too beige, but this one is too blue!), we settled on two paint colors for our […]

  • Charcuterie Table


    Have I ever admitted on here that I rarely pronounce words correctly? Words like apricot, pecan, Oregon, and wainscoting are a few that are debatable and even excusable.

Don’t worry though, your symptoms should decrease shortly. When I warned that it would get quiet over here, I never intended for it to be […]

    Baby Philip Featured

    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 […]
