Perhaps that is because, let's face it, you probably don't want to see a big pile of stuffed animals or a photo of me sprawled out on the floor after I've stepped on a rogue Lego. And I've realized recently that while our … [Read more...]

It was amazing and sentimental and sweet and a total miracle of a surprise. After being blindfolded for 45 minutes, I opened my eyes in a church filled with mason jar candles. A white dress and bouquet were … [Read more...]

Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint…NOEL Sign

Whatever the reason may be, I just love the meaning and like to incorporate it in my Christmas decorating. You might haven seen my NOEL sign in my pantry, and I felt like the … [Read more...]
