Creamy Potato Bacon Cheddar Comfort soup-2

Leaving on my mission trip next week has got me spinning. Racing to check off my work ToDo’s, prepping for the trip itself, and organizing my families’ life while I’m away tends to be all-consuming. Not a spare moment. In amongst this whirlwind, I got the sweetest text message from a friend. …As part of my support for your upcoming mission trip, I’m putting together a meal sign …

Fall maxi & cowhide beltbag

As our lives fall back into the swing of things, I remember how it feels to be in a routine. It’s nice. I forgot how wonderfully calm a routine is. The joyful chaos of summer always confuses me into thinking that life without order would be fab-u-lous. But every year as the season changes, I’m reminded that order has it’s benefits. Early to bed ~ early to rise is …

Inches African Joggers

I was recently skimming through the Inkkas website (because, I mean, let’s be honest, I love love love shoes), and what pops up but these African Joggers? And oh my goodness – it’s like they were made for me. Because I’m going to Africa in a couple of months, and I have jogged before. 😉 Seriously, they are so comfy. You know me, I usually …

Pittsburgh Paints & Stains

It’s home decorating week for us at Wild Ruffle, thanks to Pittsburgh Paints & Stains! Back when we moved into our house less than a year ago, I wondered how long it would take for my crew to gum up the sides of our island.

Pittsburgh Paints-11

My oldest daughter, Avery, has had the same purple walls since we moved into this home 8 years ago. The good news is that she still loves the color.

Cut out shoulder sweater with shorts

Last week, I shared just how overwhelming my life has felt lately. There’s something scheduled every single day and night from dawn to dusk (and even later) for the next few weeks. I had made a promise to myself to take an afternoon off and spend some quiet time doing a whole lot of nothing. And then the awaited day came, and stuff came up. …
