I'm Kelsey! The writer,  photographer and travel lover behind this lifestyle blog. Here we celebrate the beauty of  balance in everyday life, without the requirement of real pants.  And cheese plates. Always cheese plates.

These photos are from a couple weekends back, but with how much I’m looking forward to Christmas (and how festive our house is looking) I thought I would share our little Christmas tree hunt adventure. While I was proud we were grabbing our tree so early on and not saving our adventure last minute, I’m […]


These are the gifts I always think of when I think of my friends.  Sweet and special.  I may not always give them the most extravagant gifts out there, but I’d like to think that these are presents that make them smile all the same.    I made sure to include a bit of everything […]

I’ve toyed around with different home posts for my blog.  And I was  r e a l l y  struggling. Every post I wrote I felt as if I trying to pretend that my space was ‘perfect’ or ‘#housegoals.’  When in fact it’s anything but.  There are certainly things I love about our Montana apartment […]
