As we move toward moving, I'm thinking a lot about what I want our new space to look & feel like. We're cutting our square footage in half...and we're so excited about that. Downsizing our living space translates to upsizing... Continue reading

It was a whirlwind week. We put the house back on the market on Friday the 6th. We were under contract by Wednesday the 11th. Like, woah. I think that I spent most of the week in shock. I have... Continue reading

I find that the longer I'm "away" from the blog, the harder it is to return. That has to be some kind of first world problem, right? If I was blogging with any regular cadence, here's what I'd likely be... Continue reading

January is all about clean slates, fresh starts, new lists. I'm craving white space right now...uncluttered margins & gutters. We still have our Christmas tree up, per the request of one girl who returned to university today. I'm so ready... Continue reading

A birthday confession - when I realized that I was turning 44 on the 4th, I was pretty excited. 44 is already a pretty powerful angel number, and 444 simply amplifies the positive vibe. I had a Birth Chart Reading... Continue reading

Hi Louise! Thank you - he IS pretty fun. :) Yes, I'm planning on documenting 2015. The only thing that I know for sure right now is that this 6x8 size does NOT work for me. So...definitely sizing up.
