office primping

We are notorious for moving things around in our house. Even switching entire rooms around. Like this room in the front of our home. When we first moved in, it was my office. Then it became my husband’s when we built out an office for me off the playroom. Then our friends came to live […]

my favorite spot

I have a favorite little spot in my house. It is probably the most unexpected place for me to call my favorite, but there is just something about it that I love.  It really is just the half wall that separates the stairway from the living room – basically a wall with barely enough space […]

it makes a mess to organize

You should have seen my house today. It was a DISASTER. Which is what happens when you start cleaning out closets, taking on projects and not picking up after the family. But I’m making progress on a few of the things I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time. Like organize my fabrics. And […]

the nursery

My heart is happy every time I walk past Audrey’s nursery. The colors, the patterns, the fact that it is the girliest place in our house.  At first, when my husband saw the color I was asking him to paint, he questioned me. Why blue? It was my one chance to go pink, and I […]

the nursery {part two}

I’m really excited about this post. If you’ve looked around at my blog {or if you know me}, you’ve undoubtedly noticed that I am a lover of neutral, muted non-colors. You would also know that I have three boys. And am expecting a baby girl in just a few weeks. And you may have gathered […]

kitchen reorganized

After Christmas, I {we} had an urge to freshen things up. I’m sure part of it for me is that little thing called ‘nesting’, but it really is not that uncommon for us to move things around. Our friends joke that when they come to our house things are always different. There is much truth […]

the nursery {part one of many I’m sure}

Just to recap: I have three boys. Our house is full of legos and trucks and blue.  And now, I am expecting a baby girl. Pink? Flowers? Baby dolls? Hair bows? All so exciting and yet so foreign to me! As I’ve shopped and looked at pictures, I’m realizing that I really don’t love pink. […]
