New Little Furniture and Desires of the Heart

Ever since we’ve moved to our new house last May, I have found myself pretty content with the furniture we have in our main living area.  Of course, it is always subject to change should a more perfect and reasonably priced piece present itself.  However, I feel the overall flow works in style, color, and family friendliness.  The one exception I …

2016 Favorites

Happy New Year everyone!  Can you believe it’s 2017?!  I’m dragging my feet a little as I do with every new year.  It’s change after all, I’m not overly fond of change.  And it’s January, which equates to total and complete utter darkness in our home by the mountains in Alaska (okay, so we get 2 hours of direct sunlight …

Christmas Breakfast Tablescape

I wasn’t planning on this post, so it’s a mini, bonus-post if you will.  Those of you who follow me on Instagram saw a sneak peak of today’s post last week.  I was playing around, experimenting thinking about how I wanted the table to look Christmas morning.  So then I thought, while I’m at it, I’ll snap a few photos.  …

I also took a different approach to decking my …

With him, he brought home some treasures from his family and past.  My siblings and I always love digging through the artifacts representing family and memories that were always at a distance from our Alaskan home.  On this particular occasion my dad brought a carefully preserved Harry and David’s …

Practicing Peace

I wasn’t planning on posting this week. Between life with a 3 month old, and overcoming multiple birthdays, and a dark Alaska that is tricky to photograph anything, I thought I had nothing to share.  But I as I sat alone nursing my baby in the mom’s room at church on Sunday, I had an opportunity to journal thoughts that I …
