Now that all of the Thanksgiving craziness is over, it’s time to start thinking about the most wonderful time of the year and I couldn’t be more excited. As much as I loved preparing Thanksgiving food for a month straight (thanks to the blog!), I’m looking forward to focusing more on the magic and joy […]

Valentine’s Day Box Inspiration

Nothing says I love you more than a heart-shaped box filled with goodies -am I right? Along with baking buttermilk pink donuts, I decided I’m going to start a tradition of giving my loves their own Valentine’s Day box each year. The idea came to me after giving Peyton her first box last year. I […]

Handwritten Christmas Wrapping

My husband is one of the greatest wrappers ever. No, not the freestyle type – although he would beg to argue on that one – I’m talking gift wrapping peeps. He’s so good that it actually bothers me. You want to know why? Because I don’t know how it’s humanly possible to be such a […]

Christmas Garland Tablescape

Does anyone else tend to get in arguments with their spouse when it comes to decorating? Asking for a friend… Yeah right, totally asking for myself.

We came across it after she […]

Two-tti Fruity Birthday Party

Our baby girl turned two yesterday and what a second year it’s been! While preparing a picture banner for her birthday party, my husband and I couldn’t help but think how much she’s grown inside and out over the past year, and we both agree that she’s at such a fun age. The difference was […]

DIY Fourth of July Craft

Anyone else feel like the patriotic decor selection is lacking this year? A few years ago, I hit the jackpot at Joann Fabrics so I have a┬ásome stuff stocked up, but this year, I’d like more to fill some space on our shelves or to place outside. Because it’s been difficult for me to find […]

DIY Children’s Crate Bookshelf

I’ve mentioned in posts before that we didn’t find out the sex of our daughter before she was born, which meant buying neutral everything leading up to her birth. We didn’t spend a lot of time thinking about nursery themes because we agreed early on “adventure” was the way to go. We’re huge fans of […]
