If there is one thing I know, it’s living in small spaces.  My first home had super small (albeit charming) living spaces and was nothing less than quirky.  Though it taught me that the right decor can make a small house feel big. You’ll need a bit more time and patience with decorating a small […]


There are lots of thing that were affected with my big move to Montana, but I think it was my sleep habits that took the hardest hit. If there is one thing everyone can agree on, it’s that sleep is non negotiable.  However, it always seems to be the one thing I try to sneak by […]


Hurray! This post is my first ‘5 Good Things’ of 2018. I’m not sure if I’ve ever believed in January blues more than I have this year.  Those first few weeks of January were rough for me.  Nothing even went necessarily wrong, I just felt so ‘blah‘ and every idea I had seemed to just […]


This year I sort of let myself off the hook.  And rather than giving myself another word and driving every day towards it, I let myself dream a bit more.  Things that I’ve looking forward to or new things to try. (I’m thinking I’ll try fish tacos out in Charleston in March.) But there are […]

With the holiday right around the corner I figured I would check in and send off a simple Merry Christmas! I’ll be spending the weekend down in Colorado with family and check in next week once we are back from vacation.  Wishing you and yours all the best this time of year.
