• 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]

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]

MONTANA!

Nearly 4,000 miles, 13 states & 7 days later….we’ve made it to Montana. I have been here barely over a week and I’ve already fallen in love with the magnificent beauty that I wake up to each morning. Whether it’s the bright morning sun that peaks through my curtains in the early morning hours, the gentle pitter-patter of rain drops…

A New Adventure, Part One

For the last year, there has been a quiet rumbling in my life that I couldn’t quite get a grip on. Between different jobs, different relationships, different apartments, different churches, God has uprooted a lot of the certainty in my life this past year. He took me from a place of misaligned identity and brought me to a place where…

25

Today is my last day as a 24-year-old. This past year was significant. Not in any ways I would have ever been prepared for or expected, but in a beautiful, messy, painful, glorious and unique way. As soon as I turned 24, I had a distinct feeling that this would be a year of major changes in my life.  Oh…

Confessions of a Recovering Perfectionist

There are so many problems with the word perfect, the standard of perfectionism, and the life of a perfectionist. To reach for perfectionism is one of the most unattainable, disappointing, and heart breaking standards out there. It leaves us empty handed and let down.
