Two Oaks on Rockledge It was a spur of the moment decision but the best memories are usually made accident anyway. I’d wanted to do a front porch session with my grandparents, Bob and Peg (or as we call them, Mimi and Papa), since the beginning of this year, and I just happened to be […]

Lovingly Looking Back on 2020 A Photographic Recap of My Favorite Personal Memories of 2020 This year had challenges, as very year does. Of course 2020 was more of an uphill climb than most, but there was still so much beauty and joy, and I wanted to take a moment to look back on all […]

Lovingly Looking Back on 2020

This year I’ve found new ways to relish in self care that all center around being at home. I’ve always loved home dearly, and with all the extra time in the house this year that hasn’t changed, but it has forced me to be a little more creative with the ways I choose to “treat” […]

Simple Self Care Rituals at Home

December 4, 2020

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what gives my life purpose. I work from home, I’ve been isolated for months (due to COVID), my interactions with friends and family have decreased and I’ve been left with my work related to-do list, laundry, and grocery shopping. And please don’t get me wrong, grateful […]

My First Encounter with God

September 16, 2020

Nothing fancy! Just family time in the mountains. When all your people are gathered close it seems nothing else is really necessary. Simple is sacred. Scrambled eggs at the picnic table, scripture on the porch, chippies on the patio, sunshine behind the trees. A slow, sunny morning at the cabin in the mountains!

Bowie’s Fifth Birthday Recently our Golden Doodle, Bowie, turned five years old! Bowie has contributed only highlights to our lives (well, maybe aside from the time he somehow got second hand skunked) and celebrating another year with him following us at our heels was very easy!  If you haven’t met Bowie, he hasn’t met a […]

Sometimes rainy days can be such a drag. But not this week! This week our big rainy day got a dose of happy because my brother and sister in law and my nephew Caleb made a spontaneous trip to Austin. And as luck would have it, my sister Sara just happened to be in Austin, […]

Even being an introvert who loves to be at home, I’m feeling how hard being quarantined is. Some moments I’m feeling super productive and some moments I’m feeling like all I want to do is watch The Office. It’s hard not to feel sad when all I want to do is hop out there and […]

Five Things to Make Your Quarantine Happier

Night Stand

March 23, 2020

The Frio makes me ache in that beautiful, longing kind of way. After the long hot drive, after lugging all our belongings into the quaint cabins, after greeting nearby family members, I face the river. Standing at the top, looking down on the crystal clear aqua colored water, a flush of emotions and memories flood […]
