A Lesson in Worldliness

The other day I was attempting to clean up Juniper’s room. Well, actually, I was attempting to do as little work in there as possible. Sometimes I can get her to clean it all up mostly by herself. This day though, she was just not cooperating. To make a long story short, I was sick…

March Wrap Up

March was sure a busy month, and a sick month… Not really the best combination for mental well-being. We are all in recovery mode around here, it just seems to be taking FOREVER. We are all just so done with whatever bug this is. It stinks being sick when it’s so beautiful outside! I didn’t…

365 Days Outside

365 Days Outside > 72-77

Day 72 We went to the park today to play with our cousins, and it was a FANTASTIC afternoon. The weather was perfect, the park was lots of fun, we got to see a bunch of hot air balloons, and Shaun and Ehren had an entertaining match of Daddy-Daughter frisbee. (Also, Flynn went rock climbing…

Toms

I’ve always thought Toms were super cute shoes. And I like their mission to give shoes to children in need. (And One Day Without Shoes? Sounds like my kind of day! Whose joining me?) But it wasn’t until last night when I tried on Lindsay’s Toms while we were making mini shoes for her sock…

Hipster Monkey

Yesterday was pretty great. I got to spend lots of time in my craft room with a good friend, talking about all sorts of random stuff and making mini hipster clothes for a sock monkey. Skinny jeans, a slouchy beanie, and a pair of mini Toms, that is going to be one well-dressed monkey! And…

The Bleubird Family

Sometimes I see a photograph and I automatically think, ‘I need to draw that!’. That was definitely the case when I saw this beautiful family picture on the Bleubird Vintage blog. All of the photos from their wedding are beautiful, but this one of them all together is just so lovely. I just had to…

Budget Woes

We’ve been talking a lot about budgets around here lately. For pretty obvious reasons. Who doesn’t want to save a little money? Well, with my not-so-awesome-but-totally-awesome job, and Shaun delivering pizza at night, money definitely isn’t growing on trees. We have been EXTREMELY blessed wherein we have always had enough money for all necessities. We…

One Year!

Today is my sweet little man’s first birthday! I can’t even begin to describe how much I love this guy. I’ve been trying to come up with something special to write for his birthday post, you know, because someday he might get to read this. But all I can think about is how much I…

365 Days Outside

365 Days Outside > 65-71

Day 65 Today was a perfect day for watermelon. (Followed by bath time of course.) Day 66 After church today we spent some time playing in the front yard. Now that the trees in front are starting to get leaves, there is lots of lovely shade. Day 67 We stuck a piece of wood on…

Clay

I can’t remember the last time I had some free time to sit down and make something. Oh, there was that little embroidery project, but I can’t really say that I HAD time to do that one. I just blew off all my work that night! (And ended up staying up until 7am the next…
