Freedom

I love the stage of life I’m in with my kids.

Don’t get me wrong – part of me itches to have a baby every time I hold one in my arms (or spot one around town). But with a 7 year old, and two 3 1/2 year olds, life is so much easier than it used to be.

There’s a bit of freedom now. Everyone’s potty trained, everyone can at least partially dress themselves, they play independently (at times, anyway!)…

And I can now bring small handbags with me when I leave the house – no more diapers, wipes, toys, etc. to pack inside.

But they’re not allowed to get any older. I’m freezing time right now while my oldest still thinks it’s cool to hang out with me, and my youngest have yet to start school.

  • As you can imagine I’ve been obsessed with sites like Pinterest and Houzz, etc etc…  just dreaming about decorating my new house.  And now my latest obsession…rugs!  After being turned onto RugSuperCenter.com, it’s hard to stop. They have an exceptional selection of high quality rugs.  Seriously, you have to click and check it out.  You will… [Continue Reading]

  • What’s a girl on a budget to do when she wants a pretty table but doesn’t want to spend a penny to make it special? 1) Dig in the cabinet for anything and everything that feels like fall. 2) Head outside and bring nature indoors. Last year’s table decor was more streamlined, but we went… [Continue Reading]

    Harvest Tablescape
  • Well like I said here, I’m diggin’ the jumpsuit craze.  You? I’ve taken my three jumpers into fall by layering them up. Scarf, denim shirt and wrap sweater paired with my favorite new pumpkin tote bag {Hannah Shoulder Tote c/o Robert Matthew}.  Perfect. Done.  Easy.  And I can’t forget to mention… Wrinkle-proof! Which is exactly how my life… [Continue Reading]
