When I woke up this morning I had a plan. Go to Lowes, take Jack for his 2 yr visit, go food shopping, go to Home Goods,……….Yup & there the day went. I had been looking to change my mantle probably since I moved in but other things seemed more important. Recently I decided what I […]
Over the weekend we celebrated our little Jack’s 2nd birthday! It’s hard not to reflect on the journey that brought us here. It still amazes me everyday when I look at each of my boys to see the miracle of who they are. So many little things that added up to them being brought into the […]

Another project that was also tackled recently was repainting the kitchen. It was a huge job so I wanted to be sure of the color. I bought sample after sample & nothing seemed right. Finally I decided I would take the risk & go dark. Sometimes we are afraid of paint, especially the dark colors but often they […]
I finished my half bath! It’s been hanging over my head since we moved in over a year ago. It’s a space I know our guests will usually visit before they leave yet it took me this long to decorate it. I am sure some of you can sympathize. You move into a home & there are […]
This project is super easy & fun and the finished product is sentimental & beautful! 1. I took a side profile photo of each child and knowing I was going to be filling an 8×10 space in my frame I made my head image slightly smaller than the 5×7 photo I printed. You can see […]
Lately I have been consumed with decorating. When I have this momentum I try to take full advantage because like most busy moms something more pressing is always around the corner. So this past week I have finally completed some unfinished projects, I tackled projects I have been trying to start & I finally committed to […]
So this week I received a few things in the mail. Most of us order things via internet, it’s easy and for me shopping with a toddler isn’t easy, so instead of getting myself crazy I shop often online. If anyone reads this blog, you know that I am in the mist of decorating my […]
Finally…..getting around to photographing my kitchen. I still need to paint but I wanted to take some shots before it got messy again,which will actually be in less than 1 hour when the boys come home:). In my dreams I created a kitchen like this, never thinking I would actually have it someday. I am so grateful […]
I wanted to keep our Christmas simple this year. I wanted it to be reflective of who were were as a family. We had a running theme through the season which was the Polar Express. No matter how many times we watch it, it’s inspiring every time. My son asked me a few days before Christmas […]
This Christmas was extra special because it was our first holiday in our new home. I can’t tell you how good it felt to walk down OUR stairs with OUR boys on Christmas day. Shane was so thrilled that Santa remembered that we moved & actually found our new home that every gift he opened was […]
Warmest wishes from our home to yours for a happy & healthy holiday season!
Enjoy The Small Things For Someday They Will Be The BIG Things.

Every year since I was a little girl my mother would give me an ornament on Christmas Eve. It was a tradition and it was something I looked forward to as it would always hold a special meaning for us. She would hand write in her beautiful penmanship a note along with the year. I didn’t […]
Every year since my son Shane was 2 he has had a very strong opinion about what he wanted to be for Halloween. This year he couldn’t make up his mind, but he knew he wanted to be something scary. Well, I didn’t think that was such a good idea for many reasons & keep in mind this […]
How is it that my little boy just started first grade this morning. It seems like just yesterday he was hugging on my leg, barely walking or talking. Yet today he goes out into the world all dressed up in his high tops, plaid shirt & “cool dude” hair, ready and eager to make new […]
