School's here and ready or not those sweet kids (sometimes crazy) will be heading down the halls and off to face their little worlds. This weekend in the shop we had a fun little keychain craft in hopes to send them off with something a little special. Moms and dads and grandmas and friends [...]
This summer has been so good for my momma soul. It took me a while to get there--I really like having a clean house and some sort of form or order. I spent a few nights losing my mind after the kids went to bed because…EVERY room. Once I gave in, lowered my expectations and [...]
There's a lot to say about this 50 square foot room and it's hard to figure out where to start. I've always disliked this bathroom. When we purchased our 130 year old home a few years ago, I was smitten and willing to deal with any of the inconveniences that would come our way. The [...]
Over vacation I read a book about chasing your dreams. I loved the book but when I finished, I was left with this frustrated feeling I couldn’t put my finger on. Then I realized, I haven’t met my goals and my dreams are too big....let me explain.

I always joke with my husband that I was the first to ask him out. We met in college and I immediately fell hard for him and while waiting for him to finally tell me his feelings, I worked up the guts up to ask him to a service sorority formal (where the girls ask the guys).

Fast forward 11ish years and 3 kids later, we still love to date each other. I’ve learned that it doesn’t always have to be planned out or anything fancy, our main goal is to reconnect and come back together. We have a few favorite date night places but when it comes down to it our purpose is to spend time talking and knowing what’s happening in each of our lives and hearts.

Here's how the night usually goes: We walk from house to house, starting at appetizers. We move on the hour and head to the main course. This [...]
