It's Easier Than You Think...

DIY that is. I love it. I really find so much joy and fulfillment in having created something. Whether just for aesthetics or for practical use. You might wonder how I get it done without more hours in the day, right? I mean there's so much to do in raising Baby Boy, taking care of the house, cooking, and being there for Hun. I know many of you have the same issues, not enough time....more

2015 Word of the Year

I know I'm just a bit late in posting about my word of the year from 2014 and the new pick for 2015. Excuse my mess, that's all I ask. I've been busy with the hosting and the settling into our new place and Hun being off work for a little while over the holidays and the figuring out of goals and all sorts of things. You know, just life stuff.Either way, I'm finally ready to get to the word posting bit. Aren't you excited for me? No. Well, I'm excited for me and so I'm sharing....more

December's Review

December was really something for us. We tried to get most things done in the house before family arrived for Christmas. Unfortunately, we didn't finish, but at least I got the main spaces cleared of dust and random debris, literally as they pulled into the driveway....more

2014 Favorite Posts

This last year has certainly been a rough one for us in different ways. It's also been a very good year in other ways. Aren't all years pretty much like that? Well in my world, that's usually the case - some good, some not so good, maybe some bad, but usually good to have had either way.We started off the year unsure what exactly would be happening for us. A few short weeks later, my dad went in the ICU. Baby Boy and I left Hun at home and went down to care for him for a few months....more

Wellness Update #22 + 31 Days of Photography + A Giveaway

This week has been relatively quiet for us. We've done some packing and playing, but mostly just hanging out together at home. I've once again gotten back into a bit of a groove in taking my vitamins and probiotics every day. This is especially good since I've been pretty inconsistent over the last couple of months.
