things around here

A few photos from today: Sometimes yellow is just what you need to add some sunshine to your home. I’m so inspired by this spread from Holiday with Matthew Mead {I know it is a holiday publication, but I want my house to reflect this… Continue Reading…things around here

these hands

I took these photos one afternoon a few weeks ago.  It was a moment when I was truly cherishing my little ones. With their sweet hands that clean. And build. And craft. And draw. But I’m afraid I don’t always cherish these moments. Too often,… Continue Reading…these hands
