2020 Book Haul



So I'll be the first to admit, I'm not a huge book reader.   I know and see so many people get so much out of reading and are excited to share and talk about their favorites or current ones with others.   I've always felt some sort of disconnect in this area, as I feel like I miss a lot of references to literature or even

Our Home Story: Redesigning the Bedroom



This project is the last of the three major home decoration projects I set out on last fall, and this has been the biggest one to get nailed down, for sure.  Some of you may remember back last summer/ fall when I had an Insta story saga about carrying a green bookshelf 12+ blocks home from the vintage shop, and also one about painting a bedside table for Andrew.  So clearly it's been a while since those stories aired, but everything is finally in place, and we got the wall painted!  I'm so excited to share our finished bedroom design!

Gothic Vines


When I first envisioned this shoot, I definitely wasn't thinking it would come out looking so... dark and gothic.  Definitely victorian and castle-y, but gothic?  Not really!

But guys... I am loving it!!!  I've really wanted to go in a more fairytale-esque direction with these shoots and this one is definitely doing that.

So enjoy this winter gothic visual fairytale!

Just a Little Sweater Love




Oh sweaters, the soft warm hug of winter clothing!

There's something about a snuggly sweater that makes the winter days a little more comforting and enjoyable.  I wanted to come on here and talk about some of my favorite sweaters in my wardrobe and why I love them.   As with anything in fashion, there are so many different sizes, weights, silhouettes and styles for sweaters out there!

Hearts a Flutter



Here's to a little celebration that we finally got some flakes around these parts!  Not too much, and not too little, but just the perfect little blanket to softly cover the landscape in a fluffy layer of flakes!  So I was excited to get out to the woods and shoot this little valentine's vignette with my feather hearts!

The Wedding Story: Our Ceremony


Photographs by KMP © 2019


There is so much to plan in a wedding.  You have to make decisions on everything from the invitations to the flowers to the logistics of how it all gets set up, what food you'll serve, how to give directions on how to get places, and how you'll get places... the list is seemingly never ending, and everything feels so big, and so important.

Yet, when it came to putting together our ceremony, everything felt like it came into place in a very intuitive way.   It was like, everything came from the heart, and we knew in our hearts that the decisions we made were the right ones, because they came so intuitively from our hearts.

A Mindful of Miniatures and Ice Cream Hearts


A touch of whimsy for you on this first outfit post in February.  Despite cold temperatures, I'm having a ball playing with scale with this little mini-house today.  You never quite know how the scenes you dream up in your head will turn out when you actually get to go shoot — but I'd say this one got pretty close!  I saw these little baby conifers growing at one of our nearby parks and this idea of scale hit me, so I had to bring it to life!

The Blue - Green Wall



Some of you might remember our living room from posts I've written on our home decor for various holidays, but I don't believe I've ever shared on here the big update that we made a few months back.  When we first started decorating the house, we started with the living room first.  We probably spend the most amount of time in this room, as it's our tv room, and the room we gather in when we have guests.  We spent almost a year tracking down The Couch, and I spent the longest time debating how to hang our art in here that came with us from the old place and the old gallery wall.

What a Waterlogged Winter, My Deer



Sometimes I marvel at the irony of how hard I strive to make this blog feel as if I live in a much more rural setting than I actually do, while so many bloggers long for the urban feel.  Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but whenever I try to search for others in my area that have this same interest in life, I mainly discover people shooting at the Willis Tower Skydeck or Millenium Park/ the Museum Circuit.   And don't get me wrong, those places are awesome and fun, but I want my blog to feel quieter than all that.  I want my blog to feel like an escape to somewhere wild in a different sense... if that makes sense?

Soup's On!



Winter has me all bundled up and leaning into the comfort foods — diving into roasts and things baking in the oven, filling the house with all the comforting aromas of winter.   It's also got me wanting to dive into the world of soups and learn a few things about what it takes to make these scrumptious winter suppers!

Our Wedding: Fashion + Beauty


All of the gorgeous photos in this post are brought to you
by Kristen Marie Parker, our incredibly talented wedding photographer 


Full Disclosure— This is a long one, folks.

Far be it from me to write a short post when it comes to the fashion choices for the wedding, it was a detailed and well thought out approach when it came to choosing the attire for this event.

Lovin' the Wilderness



It's funny on these shorter days of the year, how it almost always feels like the day is ending and we're running out of time.  Even mid-day the sun hits a point in the sky where it streams through barren branches seemingly telling me, "make these last few beautiful hours count".

Oh, Those Flaky Flakes



My original vision for this outfit post was one with snow — something that seems very unpredictable these days!   I find it a little humorous that we ended up with a white Halloween this year, but yet the closer we draw into winter, there isn't a flake in sight!

Coats in My Cart


  


Let's talk about coats, baby!

Oh, coats.  So very necessary if you live anywhere that dips below 50 degrees, and so very frustrating for a myriad of reasons!

Winter Details





Today's post is just a little round up of minimalist winter details for you to enjoy, from monochrome winter knits to some winter foliage I gathered on my local wanderings one winter morning.

Sometimes the little things surrounding us can be simple yet beautiful.

Winter Fairy World



Today's post certainly marks a shift in the type of imagery that I hope to be creating.  I feel like over the years, I've found myself wondering, "how to I categorize myself?", or "how do I explain to others what I do?"

I have always been a consumer of imagery.  I feed off of it, really.

It quite literally is something I need a daily dose of.  Seeing what others create, and appreciating it, then going out into my world and dreaming up something I want to put out in the world.

I realized that I really do want to create more things that have a fantastical vibe— creating fairy tales as it were.

So here is my January Visual Fairy Tale for you ♥

2020 New Year's Resolutions



I find these end of year reflections to be so useful to me.  Instinctively, I like to be able to sum up and reflect on pockets of time, look back at what happened, how I handled things, and try to learn from life's events.  So often I worry that I may make a bunch of resolutions and then end up with zero follow through.  So making a point to look back and recognize what worked and didn't work is important to me.

January in the Lagoons

   


A favorite winter trend that I've been loving for a couple of years now is that of confetti knits.   Right around this time of year I tend to notice that fashion takes a bit of a nap.  We're all so distracted with the holidays and our holly leaves and such that after the new year, I tend to notice fashion taking a halt and sleeping for a bit.  We retreat into our homes and appreciate that hygge mood and sip some tea and maybe hit the gym.  I feel like winter fashion really
