Weekend Cheers

Surprise! Did you think I had disappeared? Left you for good? Some weeks are busier than others and the reality is, I can’t do it all in those situations. Sadly, that meant that you were left to yourselves this week, dear readers. But I wanted to pop in at the end to assure you that...
What Home Means

What Home Means

What home means to us… this is a subject that’s been jostling around in my mind for the past few weeks. I’m incredibly blessed to have a wide variety of friends and family from all paths and stages of life and each with a unique perspective on home life. Being within and around these homes...
Color Study... Ep. 13

Color Study… Ep. 13

Yesterday afternoon David and I took a walk around the neighborhood with Ives. It was shortly after a brief summer shower and all the colors were popping! This color scheme feels perfect right now… fresh, vibrant, slightly beach-y, and definitely on the cool side. Great start for the week!

This week’s happenings have all had a single theme in common – making good from bad and finding beauty despite hardship and distress. Here’s the short list: A guest post for my friend Jennifer about the imaginary life of a street style girl A fallen tree beautifying our home A special introduction to the women...
WORN for Peace Giveaway

WORN for Peace Giveaway

Did you know June is World Refugee Month? What better time to support and share the WORN story! (it’s as if i planned it this way or something!) After yesterday, I’m going to keep today’s post short and simple. “LIKE” the WORN Facebook page to be entered for a chance to win this lovely Nantucket knit...
WORN but not abandoned

WORN but not abandoned

Are you ready for something special, friends? Today’s post is a little wordier than usual but it’s so important! I hope you’ll take the time to read. The safety, comfort, and luxury of our lives is something most of us admittedly take for granted. It doesn’t require much digging to learn about places in the...
Lightening in a Vase

Lightening in a Vase

“Making lemonade out of lemons” is a cliche statement but undeniably appropriate in so many situations. I don’t have to dwell on the electrical difficulties David and I have been having this past week. (You may have seen me mention it HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.) Needless to say, our situational issues have thrown a...
More from Susan

More from Susan

I was truly blown away by the pure number of beautiful moments in Susan’s Dallas home. Every where I turned, I stumbled upon another shot that couldn’t be missed! This makes for the worst kind of editing process. It becomes painful to weed away the out-takes, which is why I’m cheating today and sharing an...

This week has been a little strange. I mentioned our tree catastrophe in yesterday’s post. It’s kept David, Ives, and me in the dark for the past 24 hours and improvements aren’t promising for at least another couple days. I won’t lie… it’s been irritating but the one upside has been my forced separation from...
Staying Flexible

Staying Flexible

Yesterday afternoon a tree fell over in our backyard during an especially ferocious thunderstorm and took out all of our electricity. I’m now writing this post from the bustling headquarters of my local Starbucks. Earlier in the week when David was taking these photographs, we had our darling but squirmy pup Ives with us. He...
Style Story... Susan Baten

Style Story… Susan Baten

Susan Baten is a woman of more actions than words. For that reason, rather than sharing the usual audio interview, today the photos will speak for themselves. To fully appreciate Susan and her home, you have to understand her line of work. She flips and decorates houses… really nice houses!! Think the grandchildren of Mark...
Color Study... Ep. 12

Color Study… Ep. 12

This past weekend really started to feel like Summer. I know, I know… Summer doesn’t actually begin until June 21st, but let me tell you, it might as well be here already! Perhaps it was our more relaxed schedule finally catching up with us or maybe it was simply the color of the clothes I...
Weekend Cheers

Weekend Cheers

This week I’ve watched my potted plants take off in the high heat and intense sunshine of our Texas Summer. Everyday there seems to be another neon green shoot popping up from the soil. In a similar fashion, I’m doing some “branching” out of my own with an exciting new endeavor. Poppy Magazine is an online publication focusing on...
