2019 Year in Review

This year has been A YEAR.

It has been a mixture of some of the best moments of my life as well as some of the hardest days I've experienced.

So much has happened this year.

Lights Above

One of my very favorite things about this time of the year is the magical quality of all the twinkling lights that adorn our streets and homes.

All over there are little pockets of beautiful lights up, making their own little magical scenes when the sun goes down.

DIY Christmas Banner

Every year I try to add something new to our holiday decor.  Often times, a bunch of new things!  But each year I want to create a new handmade craft that can be used for years to come, so that one day I will just have an endless assortment of holiday crafted items that I made decking all of our halls!

The Christmas Fairy

The year's end holidays are upon us, and as such I thought I'd share a little Christmas - inspired outfit post on the blog!

As I was shooting this one I encountered many more people than I thought I would on a cold winter's day out for a morning jog!  I got a couple "You look like a Christmas Fairy!" comments as people ran by, so I thought that might be a fitting title for today's post.

A Light In the Woods...

Nature really is a wonder.

We watch as it transitions through the year from sunny beaches and flowering branches to colorful leaves and finally to disparate trees and winter wonderlands blanketed with snow.

Our Home For the Holidays

It is that time of the year again when I share with you guys how we've decorated the house for the holiday season!  Transitioning seasons in the house is so much fun for me, and I enjoy bringing out some of our decor from over the years and mixing in new things to keep it ever-evolving!

DIY Tree Skirt


This year as I was gearing up for decorating our house for the holidays, we realized that this was the year we were going to take the plunge and get a legitimate sized Christmas Tree.   This was a big day!  What kind of tree should we pick out?  Pre-lit? Unlit? With or without snow?!

Well you can probably surmise from the first photo of this post that we went with a snow flocked tree, so no secrets there!  We ended up getting our tree online and lighting it ourselves incase the lights ever burned out.  Yay, we had bought our first 'real' tree (in the sense of size, not live!)!

A Holly Jolly Christmas


As the days grow shorter and the temperatures grow colder, I'm finding more and more reasons to wrap up in a blanket and stay indoors on my free days with a warm cup of tea or hot cocoa.  So I found it only fitting to make my first outfit post of the Christmas season one that emulated that cozy indoor mood — and I was pretty much all sold when I saw these adorable holiday pj's at Target during their first week of putting out Holiday merch!
