No matter how much changes in your life, there are things that stay undeniably the same. It seems that, in the end, we all have our own themes that define our actions, drive our passions, and fuel our soul. These ‘themes’ are evident when we look back at our life and find the similarities in […]

Polaroids and Special Things

I love my Polaroid camera. I know, I know- it’s a shameless plug, really, but really it’s been more then just a pretty thing I put on my dresser. So far, this single film beginners camera has decorated our home and documented our lives. It feels like I talk a lot about how special little […]

Oddly Enough

The past few weeks have been so much fun. We’ve been exploring gardening (just a little bit in our temporary residence), and now we’ve added a puppy to our small family. It’s been overwhelming, if we’re honest, but it’s also been a amazing experience. There’s something unexplainably intimate that happens when you are taking care […]

Safety, Fear and Boycotting

Normally, I stay out of political and religious conversation. In my observation, people’s comments online rarely change opinions, and are nearly guaranteed to create strife and build walls between us rather then opening minds and producing new thought.

After trying everything we […]

Bloom

I love having plants around the home. They bring a certain freshness to our space, and it’s something I can take care of that’s not so needy. I water it, I place it in sun, but it doesn’t take up all my time and effort. It’s a low-maintenance  hobby, really. Now I am sure there […]

Do Dreams Ever Really Die?

I’m moving forward. Life in our tiny house was amazing and beautiful. It had its challenges, of course, and it had its perfections. It’s where we fell in love with our baby girl. I tried to hold onto our tiny house, even after we moved. But the reality is that our tiny life was a […]

Easter

I’ve never been a huge fan of Easter. At least, not before. Christmas has always been pretty much my favorite, with holidays like the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving right behind. Even as a Christian, I would chalk Easter up to be a celebration mostly for children, with the overall good intention of sharing the […]
