Master Bathroom Rehab Pt. I

When we last “spoke,” I was describing our recent home drama. Now, two weeks later, the rehabilitation is finally under way. Our bathroom has been dried out, emptied, and gutted. After the initial “gut” process, it looked like this: I know, I know. It’s rough looking. The parts of the wall that are missing are from…

Waiting Game

A lot can happen in a week. Better yet… a lot can happen in a day, even an hour. It’s no short story, but Colt and I had a little surprise a couple weeks ago, that forced us to make some adjustments to our (otherwise) comfy lives.

Master Bedroom Refresh

Since Colt and I are about to become parents in the next month or so, I’ve officially begun making sure that our home is arranged accordingly. The main “arrangement” being that my office space has been relocated from what is now Baby C’s Nursery, to the bright little nook in our bedroom. I love this space for so…

When It’s Hard to “Get Your Greens”

Sometimes–actually, most times–I reach the end of my day, and my brain starts to do a little checklist of what I’ve had, nutrition-wise. “Breakfast, lunch, dinner, okay. I’ve had zero greens…again!”

The Nursery Tour //

Dude. It’s finished. One less thing to worry about on the ole’ “pre-baby checklist.” The nursery is kindof a biggie on that list, now that I think about it…

“Quick & Easy” Mobile for Baby C.

Happy Tuesday, friends! I thought I’d share a quick DIY project that I dreamed up this past weekend. As you know, the nursery is predominantly neutral, with touches of ocean and coastal colors and shapes. So finding a mobile was very difficult. Everything was just too darn complex. The colors were loud or they felt too…

The Definitive List of Cool Dresses for a Warm, Summer Pregnancy

The first thing people (mainly strangers who want to comment on the bump) like to state, after finding out that I’m due in September, is the ever-so-obvious: “Wow! So you’re gonna be pregnant through the hottest months of the year!” “Oh. Really? I hadn’t thought/cried about that yet. You’re the first person to inform me of my plight…” I’m being…

On the Value of Life

I woke up this morning, heavy-hearted. Despite my complete faith in the sovereignty of God in my own life and the life of my family, the still, small parts of my heart can’t help but feel a bit of dread at the prospect of bringing a child in to this world. And then each time I begin to…

Hello, 3rd Trimester.

28 weeks. What the WHAT??! I am almost a mom. There’s almost a literal, physical, baby in our home. …in our FAMILY! To quote every basic chick out there, “I literally can’t even.” *** I’m not the weekly bump shot type, but entering in to the third trimester seemed worth at least some documentation. I mean, there’s…

4 hours in Jekyll Island, GA

When you live on the First Coast, you get to take trips to awesome, AWESOME places, with travel times as little as and hour and a half. And for these two day-trip loving kids, that’s nothing! Colt’s day off landed on a Monday, this week, so we thought it could be a nice treat to…

A “Beachy Modern” Boy’s Room

In case you missed it, the decorating world has deemed “themes” as outdated, when approaching a room’s design. The new term is “feel,” and it’s oh-so-popular these days. Honestly, the entire concept gets a giant eye-roll from me, because who the heck cares what you call it? Just decorate your room. BUT, that said, there is a…

Impromptu Kitchen “Remodel”

It started on a whim, one Saturday, when my friend and I were thinking of a “rainy day house project” to do together. My eyes would drift over the kitchen’s yellow(wish) formica counters, the inside of me screaming “LET’S RIP THIS CRAP OUT!!!” Externally, of course, I just bit my tongue. The kitchen was a…

Recipe From a Friend

The art of good, clean, delicious cooking is just one of the many things that this friend of mine is skilled at. He and his wife are both fabulous human beings with a heart for people, travel and food: Organic, of-the-earth food. It was from them that I learned how communal cooking can actually be….
