Happy Monday, you all! It’s one of my favorite days of the week, and today included a brunch with friends then office time while the boys napped and the girls were at Monday School. It’s my at home day this week, and I love that – feeling like I can get organized for the week ahead. Especially when it’s a busy holiday week, and the next few days are extra busy! I’ve done a little bit of “fluffing the nest” for… Read more »

Merry Christmas, everyone! We are so enjoying being finished with the attic remodel and actually being able to enjoy the finished product now! It’s been a very busy autumn, and the feeling of having it completed is wonderful. I’m looking forward to showing some more pictures of the finished attic, but for now, here are a few pictures of the Cottage at Christmastime. The Christmas Tour of Homes was a little over a week ago, and so I snapped some… Read more »

    It’s the 2nd of December! Is anyone else in disbelief that this is the last month of the year?! I still feel stuck back in October, and it seems impossible that it’s nearly Christmas! However, next week is the Christmas Tour of Homes that we were asked to be part of, and the fluffy of activity around here shows the reality that this is actually NOT September at all. Things are moving right along with the attic remodel,… Read more »

Oh, that’s right. It was actually, let’s see, a week and a half ago? You’ve got to be kidding me. Someone has turned time on fast-speed and I cannot keep up with life these days. So we’ll just enjoy life twice, even if it’s 10 days late. :) Who all loved that July 4th fell on a Friday?? *RAISES BOTH HANDS* I mean, seriously. Not only was it a holiday, but it was also a 3-day weekend. How much better… Read more »

Hello all! I feel a bit shy coming back to this little white space. It’s been a month since I last wrote here? How can time pass so quickly! This blogging break was really not even intentional, but with traveling out-of-state over the holidays, and exhaustion catching up with us from the busyness it all, and a tree falling on our internet line, and the cold days of January… well, it all turned into a little break that was actually very needed….

“Rejoice, O sinners, everywhere for the restorer of the castaways, the Savior of the fallen is born. Join in the joy, ye saints, for he is the preserver of the saved ones, delivering them from innumerable perils, and he is the sure perfecter of such as he preserves. Jesus is no partial Savior, beginning a work and not concluding it; but, restoring and upholding, he also prefects and presents the saved ones without spot or wrinkle, or any such thing… Read more »

It’s the second of the Sister Christmas Tours today, and I’m enjoying this so much! After these two, there really is no reason in the world for me to do one ~ these two have done it so perfectly! One thing that has been so fun as sisters is our similarities as well as our differences in décor. We all enjoy creativity and beauty, and yet we vary in style from minimalistic to shabby chic to industrial to some other… Read more »
