Mel Deanna with bonus Owl!

I have to start today with a photo I didn’t take myself. We went hiking at Mel Deanna on Friday and found a great horned owl nest. Craig is geared up to take photos of birds with his little powershot, whereas I stick to flowers and children. Anyway, this is one of his shots. It […]

Spring 30 for 30: Part 1

I’m halfway through my capsule wardrobe experiment! I’ve taken photos of every outfit except for the one day where I worked from home all day in yoga pants. I’m not actually taking photos everyday, I do them in batches. But I’m posting on instagram daily. It’s actually not a bad thing as it makes me […]

My Spring 30 for 30 Capsule Wardrobe

Hey guys, here are the clothes I’ve picked for the 30 for 30 challenge. You may note that there are only 26 items. I don’t actually like the rest of my clothes, so I’m leaving some room for shopping or sewing. Or shorts if the weather gets warm!  To be fair, I don’t actually love […]

30 for 30 (a minimalist wardrobe experiment)

Am I the only one who looks at posts about seasonal capsule wardrobes, or cutting your closet down to just 40 hangers and tries not to roll her eyes a little? When I first started going through my possessions with a minimalist’s desire to cut down to the things I actually use and love (and […]

Hoppy Easter

Last week we were down on my parent’s farm for Spring Break and had a little Easter celebration with my family. Apparently it was my idea, so I was in charge of food and we had a Greek Potluck. Greek food is Eastery, right? It was amazing. And we can never resist a little egg […]

Happy Birthday Sunny!

Earlier this month Sunny turned four. She had her three besties over for a very fancy tea party. They all wanted to help decorate. This ended with sprinkles eeeeverywhere and small children licking my table. And I am better at making cakes that are delicious than cakes that are gorgeous. You’ll have to take my […]

Early Gardening

It was a gorgeous morning and there are hardly any bits of snow in the yard left so clearly it was a gardening day! The bears did a number on our strawberry plants last fall so I was glad to see some green in their patch. The girls thought we should plant everything. Sadly it […]
