Happy Friday and Happy New Year!

Did you have an amazing Christmas? It’s one of my favorite times of the year. Hubs and I have a tradition where we go to our church’s Christmas Eve service, out to dinner at our favorite restaurant, and then home to open presents. Our church has...Read More »


How I Started a Bullet Journal

If you happen to be on social media you have probably seen posts about something called a bullet journal. Their pages filled with pretty lettering and amazing drawings. Most likely you’ve seen it and kept scrolling after giving pause to admire them. Maybe you’ve looked them up on Instagram or...Read More »

Hello Sunday!

Not sure about you but this weekend has flown by! I’m sure it’s only because I had a full day yesterday spending time with the fam and hanging with Mom at the farmer’s market. We bought a ton of tomatoes to make salsa with using a recipe Mom got...Read More »

It’s Sunday Funday and I’m pretty stoked about it!

First reason is that in 8 weeks I will be arriving in Italy for the first time. Seemed like it would be forever when I first decided to go and started booking my travel. So much to do yet!

Next is that there...Read More »

Happy Sunday to you!

A favorite thing of mine is lavender. So when my bestie, Sunni, invited me to an event at a local lavender farm I had to say yes! We had a great time there checking out the vendors and cutting our own lavender from the field. This was a small...Read More »

An Ode to Mom

One of the most pivotal things to happen in my life was the day that I was placed in the home of my parents. See, they aren’t technically my “parents” but to me they always will be. These wonderful people opened their home to me and from nearly day one...Read More »

So it’s been a week. It seems that there was so much loss felt both iconically and personally. Times like these remind us to tell those we love that we do and not to take for granted any time spent with them. So hug your people!
