Patio Revamp

Summer is here and for me that means I want to be outside as much as possible.  We don’t have much of an outside living space, only a small back patio, but what I’ve got I want to be an enjoyable space to spend time in. Last year Andrew and I spruced up our little patio by building a succulent wall and put up a few strings of lights.  We loved it and surprisingly I was able to keep those little succulents alive! (I have the worst luck with plants!!) […] Read more…

2017 a year of travel

As I’m looking back at 2017 I realize it was definitely a year defined by travel and trusting to follow the Lords lead. As I’m sitting here realizing how many places Andrew and I were able to go I’m blown away by the sweetness of the Lord to know my heart.  For years I longed to travel and there were many times I made it known to Andrew, but back then there seemed to be a big fat “its never going to happen” sign slapped across my dream. Yet I […] Read more…

Vegas with the girls!

I’ve been so blessed to have these two ladies in my life.  I pretty much won the jackpot when my husband’s two best friends married such rad women that I love. I know that isn’t always the case for a lot of people , but I’m happy to say I’m one of the lucky ones. Vegas was so much fun! It’s the simple luxuries that mean so much, like sleeping in, taking your sweet time to get ready and spending all day shopping. Especially for Chloe and Anna who both […] Read more…

My turn as the client

I met Jamie through Instagram almost two years ago.  She’s one of the most passionate and hardworking hairdressers around owning her own salon “Pin and Plait Studio” and an incredibly successful online course “Oh Hot Gram” designed to help fellow hairdressers utilize their Instagram accounts in a way that turns into real life clients and business growth. And she’s only 25! If I was even half as focused and determined as her at that age… Heck, if I was even half that now!!… But lets not play the “what if” […] Read more…

Getaway with the besties

Life can get so busy that weeks can go by without being able to see your friends, even friends that live exactly 4 min away.  Its kind of a bummer, so when the opportunity came up for us to have an overnight getaway we all jumped on it.  We packed up the car, packed up the snacks and headed out to a place with barely there Wi-Fi, spotty cell service and a whole lot of space.  We spent almost all of our time outside running around getting sweaty and covered […] Read more…

Ireland Again?!

Ireland again? Yes this is our third time going to Ireland in one year but I will tell you the same thing we’ve told our family and friends and the same thing we told customs when they were questioning us pretty heavily before letting us out of the airport. No we are not planning on moving to Ireland, we just really really love it there! And one of the biggest reasons is because of all the friends we’ve made there.  I mean like real, honest to goodness friends.  And a […] Read more…

Our Last Day in Iceland

On our last day in Iceland we drove out to Fjadrarglijufur Canyon.  I was really looking forward to it because the pictures I had seen were amazing. It was raining pretty hard that morning but I was hopeful that by the time we got to the canyon, an hour and a half drive from our hotel, the skies would clear up.  No such luck.  It was raining pretty hard when we got there but that didn’t stop us.  We put on our ponchos and headed up the trail.  Even though […] Read more…

Waterfalls and Planes

I must say that our second day in Iceland was a pretty good one.  We woke up early and set out to hike down Solheimasandur beach to see the old abandoned DC-3 plane that crashed there in 1973. It took us just over an hour to walk all the way from the parking area to the actual plane which felt like an hour of walking through Mars. The ground was black sand and rock and there was nothing in the horizon as far as we could see, which had become […] Read more…

Iceland? Sure we’ll go!

People kept asking us why we were going to Iceland and we would joke that it was just a pit stop on the way to Ireland. Like, “oh yeah we’re just these big time travelers so we’re going to swing by Iceland real quick to check it out. No big deal.” Haha! I’m so sure.  The truth is it was all about the airfare.  We had heard about this Icelandic airline, Wow Airlines, that has really good deals on airfare to European countries.  The only catch is that every flight […] Read more…

A Carnival Themed 1st bday for my Niece

What’s more of a bummer then you’re oldest brother moving to Montana and you not being able to see him like you want to? Him meeting a lovely lady and having his 2 youngest babies in Montana and not being able to see them!! It had been 4 years since he moved up there and unfortunately neither of us were able to visit each other during that time. So when he was finally able to come down a few weeks ago I couldn’t wait to see him and finally meet […] Read more…
