What I'm Up To Lately #12

  The last time I have shared the more personal details of my life in these "What I'm Up To Lately" posts was back in October.  Nearly 4 months ago. I wish I can say that we did a lot in 4 months, but, we didn't.  Instead we are living life daily and our projects have been slow.  We're okay with that.  But here's what we've been able to get done. Crafts I worked on a craft project, or two.  Actually a few.  I created two letters to decorate our front door and our gallery wall from our freshly painted hallway.  The girls and I also painted and decorated some ornaments over the Chris ... read more

November Favorite Things

Things I Currently Love

Lately I've noticed that my style is changing.  I'm starting to listen to more of the things I love, vs. the things that everyone else loves.  I've incorporated my style in my business and home, and in turn, others have loved it too!  If you follow me on pinterest, you can see some of the things I'm currently loving that have my own style.  I don't pin just cool things, I pin things that I absolutely love and adore.  But I thought it would be neat to share some of the pins right here on blog with my own personal thoughts of why these pins are so special to me.   1.  My favorite w ... read more
