Happy Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving, we’re keeping it simple. One small turkey (the smallest we could find). Three sides, and a single pie. For our family of three, it’s really all we need- and then some. I grew up quite differently – with three siblings, my parents, and occasionally a relative or two, we had quite a few […]

Sometimes, I Suck at Minimalism

Why is minimalism impossible

It’s not really a secret that I consider myself a minimalist. I’m notorious for bagging up things to send to thrift stores and more likely then not I always have some bag to send away in my car. There’s close to nothing on our walls, and often you’ll find me going through out household items […]

Home - A Full Time Traveller's Reflection

Today, we move. No, we’re not going far away (literally two miles down the road), just to a bigger apartment in a slightly closer area to where we want to be. But it’s strange and surreal to be moving away from a place that has been ‘home’ the longest.

Second-hand Favorite

I love home decor. For me, an ideal weekend activity is browsing unique shops and seeing gorgeous, custom pieces and envisioning them in my home. From hand-painted pallets to old dining room sets, I love it all. I want it all. If you’ve been around for a while, you know that it’s extremely out of character for […]

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 […]
