Kid’s Shoe Storage

Nothing spectacular today, but since it took me forever and a day to come up with this, I figured it was worth sharing.   May I present … what to do with your changing table when it’s no longer needed to change the babies.   Our back-up/second changing table fit perfectly into Jemma’s closet and […]

Welcome to Our Living Room

Let me start off by saying that my house does not always looks like this. Actually, quite rarely. Most days Rody is galloping in the middle of the living room and Noah’s Ark and the accompanying animals are waiting to trip you. Most mornings Max is busy building a tower in front of the slide […]

Lie — The Appearance of My Home is a Reflection of Who I Am

  Honored. That’s how I felt when Ashley asked me to contribute to the Overcome the Lie blog tour this month.

But that’s why I’m sharing, because overcoming lies is an ongoing journey and one […]

Word of the Year: Thrive

Last year I just wanted to feel settled. We had moved twice and Max was still a newbie. I was tired and worn and needed the year to be calm; restorative. Thankfully, it was. Here’s the best of 2013.
