Our first year of homeschool was nothing like I imagined. I didn’t have the structure I wanted. Often times I felt inadequate, like I was failing them. I wondered if I had made a wrong decision in the beginning or if I was in over my head.  But then I realized maybe-just maybe, they needed […]

Embracing Your Role Inside The Home

Someone’s weed is someone else’s wildflower. Paintbrushes will always be mine. It’s been that way since I was a little girl. I’ve used them all throughout my branding and they have such a special meaning to me. I pick them daily and fill Mason jars up to decorate our home. They are only here for […]

Paintbrush Hope

I love recipes that take minimal effort and the grunt work of cooking gets done for me all day. One of my most used appliances is the slow cooker. I make these delicious, fall off the bone chicken thighs often in our house. Sometimes I’ll change them up with seasoning like lemon pepper or rosemary, […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs

We ran off to Wyoming + Montana to celebrate back in September to celebrate our 10 year anniversary early but 12-17-11 is the date we said I Do. We had the best trip and really got to just be present and reflect on the last decade. Our lows, our highs, what we’ve loved, what we’d […]

Enjoy these Cowboy Christmas tunes with some western swing. I love classics, especially Dolly + Kenny’s album. From our ranch to yours.

Holiday Mixtape

It’s our favorite time of year, especially around the house. I don’t do a ton of decorating because too much makes our small space feel so cluttered but I love adding festive touches here and there that gives our home a more cozy feel. I wanted to share a few areas I’ve styled for Christmas. […]

Barn House Christmas

Sharing @sammirobbins_ words because I think we all need to hear them. I know I did. ???????? “Did you lose your femininity? Is it hiding deep under layers of self protection, control, achieving success and being strong because no one else could be strong for you? You don’t want to be like that but don’t know how […]

FEMININITY

This lesson of AOH (Aperture of the Heart-my photography class) was a big one for me. I wanted to share a few random thoughts on it because like all of the other lessons so far, I felt it needed to be documented. Maybe no one else will ever read these words, maybe my daughters will […]
