When I embarked on my vision of a vintage train station in our entryway, with our restored Depot Bench taking center stage, I knew I had to have some appropriate signs to adorn the wall above as well.  I have some family photos on the train tracks, but to create a little more interest to the eye, I wanted some signs.  …

I am so excited to finally welcome you into the entryway of our new home.  We’ve been here about two months now and made it seem like home.  The entryway is a work in progress.  As you will see, it is a huge space to fill (no complaints here) so I have plans, but the reveal is for phase one. It …

Happy Weekend friends!  Thanks for joining me once again.  Today, I am sharing another original apron I created about a year and a half ago.  This pattern is hands down, my favorite.  I need to make myself one in blue and white of course! Last Christmas, I made my mom three different aprons.  They all had a common theme, they were …

My camera is still on the brink, and I have new projects coming along, but until I get a new lens, I am reaching into the archives.  As I was going through some old photos, I came along some mustache birthday party pictures that I thought would be worth sharing as some inspiration. It was a birthday party for my …

For those that know me, there is a word that I rarely embrace.  That word is spontaneous.  I like things in my life to be planned, prepared, predictable and thought about ahead of time.  Yes, I’m the one who starts packing for trips a week or two ahead of times, and researches purchases for weeks to years before diving in. …

(A modern day paraphrase of Jeremiah 29) Dear children, living in uncertain times, this is what the Father God, the One who created the universe and put the world into motion, the one who wove you together in your mother’s whom has to say to you. I know the world looks like a trifling mess. There are uprisings and terror …

Our first year of marriage, like so many newly weds we were poor. I mean really poor, like we only could claim $8,000 worth of income on our first year’s taxes. Obviously, we experienced God’s supernatural provision day after day. And as stressful as it was at times, it also was foundational in our first years to know beyond a …

We’ve been in our new house about a month now and it is quickly becoming home.  I’m still working on little things, and there are larger projects that await, but we are very pleased with the rate and progress we’ve made in settling in. In this post, I shared the photos of our new living room.  I absolutely love it!  And …

With a family on the larger side (we have four boys), my husband started implementing an activity into his schedule on a weekly basis. We call it “special time with Daddy”, and each of the boys get a date, one-on-one with their dad once a month. Each month, each boy looks forward to their special time, they dream about a …

Let me take this opportunity to give a great big welcome to our new home!  I would say we are 85% settled.  Things still need to be hung on the wall, some light fixtures need to be replaced, a few more boxes and organization need to take place, and we are still waiting on the cabinet doors to our kitchen …
