• Fall Recipes to Keep You Cozy

    With snow on the ground & the leaves all long gone, it seems like we’ve made the abrupt transition to winter here in the upper Midwest. Of course, I’m mourning the fact that my favorite season is always so short lived, but I’m trying to make the most of it and take this time to get a head start on… [Continue Reading]

  • Why I Ditched My Capsule Wardrobe

    Remember that little “experiment” I did last fall? Yeah, so….it really didn’t go too well, let’s just say I didn’t exactly finish my challenge. But in all seriousness, over the last (almost) year since that wild-haired idea, I’ve found a much better way to do things. And thank the LORD because I’m pretty sure everyone is kind of tired of… [Continue Reading]

  • Coming Soon….

    Now that we’re almost halfway through this little babe cookin’ (seriously, how the heck has it already been 19 weeks?!) I figured it might just be time to hop back on the blogging game and give a little life update. So in case you didn’t know, the hubs & I are having a BABY. Yep, sweet little Baby Cristy will… [Continue Reading]

  • Never Say Never

    [No, this is not an ode to the Justin Bieber. (But really….what happened to the Biebs?) Anyway, honestly, when I first started writing this post….I thought I was going to be writing about all of the joys of the first year of marriage and life in North Dakota. Heck, I don’t even know if any of this makes sense or… [Continue Reading]

  • The Perfect Balance of Raw & Refined

    Husbands and dads are seriously so hard to shop for. Or maybe, it’s just my husband and my dad. Seriously though, I never know what to get them when it comes time to find a gift. When I was little, I was all about the DIY gifting….I mean, I think my dad might still have the makeshift glitter golfball “snow-globe” I made him when… [Continue Reading]

2014: A Cowboy, 19 States, and a Grand Adventure

Ok, so I’m a little late on the whole 2014 recap. But better late than never, right? At the beginning of last year, I made a big promise to myself; adventure more, worry less, and floss. Well here I am, in the front end of 2015 and I have successfully fulfilled two-thirds of my promise to myself. Apologies in advance to my…

Seize the Adventure

Carpe Diem is quite possibly one of the most overused phrases. It rings in our heads as more than just a life motto written in a lost language, but as a constant reminder to fully embrace each and every moment and to “seize the day.” “20,000 miles, 19 states, 4 cities, 3 time zones & I finally learned what adventure is…

10 Lessons Learned from North Dakota

“Who moves to North Dakota?!” My dad has asked me this question probably 10 times over the last month and a half that I’ve called this place home. Even locals give me a questionable glance and a furrowed brow when I tell them I moved here from California. I then get the “Wait, so have you ever experienced winter?” “Do…

The thing they forget to tell you about adventures…

Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned. Try and try as we may…we pray, we plan, we prepare, but still; our dreams fade, the road gets bumpy, and we end up in a mess on the floor crying over cookie butter ice cream. Luckily, that last part hasn’t quite happened yet, but I feel like it’s not too far off. The…

My Journey

I still can’t believe I’m here…in Montana. A place that I specifically told myself several years ago that I would NEVER live in, ever…under any circumstances. But, God changed my mind, He changed my heart & He changed all of my plans. The choice to move here was the biggest leap of faith I have ever taken in my whole 25 years of…
