  • We Moved!

      Nearly two months ago, we packed up our small home of five years, handed our keys over, and after a dozen signatures, sold our home. Before we put our old house on the market, we already knew the next house we’d be buying (spoiler: it’s my childhood home!) We accepted an offer two weeks after our house […]

    Minimal Wood Lamp

    These lamps caught my eye several months ago on Pinterest and as I do with most things I see on Pinterest, I conspired to make my own. I acquired all the supplies and got right to work. I had the best intentions to finish it before Philip’s birth but things didn’t quite go as planned […]

    Because Babies

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 […]

    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 […]

  • Full Term


    Tomorrow I will be considered “full term” in my pregnancy, which means this baby boy can make his appearance safely at any time. Eliana was born on her due date and Isabelle came one week prior. I’m anticipating this baby to come earlier than 40 weeks but don’t mind if that turns out to be […]
