Wild and Three Birthday

Noah celebrated his 3rd birthday in typical Noah style…wild. He didn’t really have any particular theme in mind so I got to pick. We ended up with a “Wild and Three” theme. It kind of was a mash up of camping/woodland creatures. I have to say that I kind of loved all of  ...

Family Wall Gallery Printables

If you follow me on instagram you know I recently replaced my gallery wall art. It was about time since it was all Christmas-themed. I still loved the black and white with the gold. I created this Fruit of the Spirit print. I’ve seen a lot of “Family Rules” artwork but I like  ...

The Trimmings

I shared our Christmas celebration but I here are some of my favorite pretty things from this past season. I realize this would have been more helpful if I’d posted it prior to the holiday but so much was done last minute thanks to all the major construction projects going on around  ...
