Ikea Shelves Solve an 11 Year Decorating Dilemma

Hi there!! I’m so excited to be back at this computer typing a new blog post for you! We’re starting to get into the groove of the new school year (though it’s been a bit of a rollercoaster!), and after a summer of not doing much to this house or on here, I’m feeling super […]

Faith Over Fear: Lessons From a Morning on the Sand

Off to Haven!

Summer Dinner Ideas

June 2017 Roundup!

Wow, feels like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve done a round-up post…not sure why?! When I realized it’s the last day of June today, I thought maybe I should bring the round-up posts back. I mean, we’re all busy people living our busy lives and I’m sure you don’t check this page every day…or every week…or […]
