• 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]

  • Dressed and Ready with PinkBlush + a Giveaway!

    Growing up with two brothers, I hated wearing dresses. All I wanted to do was climb trees, build forts and dig to China. But my sweet mama wouldn’t have any of it. As much as I fought to be a tomboy, she had a rule that I wore a dress to school at least two times a week. I dreaded those days.… [Continue Reading]

  • Harvest Apple Cider Mules

    Usually I’m all wrapped up in pumpkin this time of year — but as we head into November, I think I out-pumpkined myself so I decided to switch it up. Now, I’m all wrapped up in anything and everything apple. Between my new Maple Apple Bourbon candle, my overflowing apple basket and this yummy drink, I think it’s safe to… [Continue Reading]

Simplicity

There is something so special about leaving behind the daily duties of life, the endless to-do lists, the heavy weight of responsibility…and trading it all in for the freedom that a few days of simplicity can bring. I am an adventurer by nature, an explorer of sorts, a restless heart always trying to grab onto more of life. Yet I…

The Joy of Struggle

Disclaimer: First off…this morning I woke up at 4am, travelled 1000 miles home to Washington state and now here I am trying to edit a blog post…so I hope my delirious and tired writing will be interesting for someone. Secondly friends, I’m writing about surfing, which well I am so NOT good at surfing. Of the 15 times I’ve ever…

Taking the long way…

Life has a tendency to just get so busy sometimes. With this rush of go-go-go I know I tend to lose sight of the beauty in each moment. It’s way too easy to get sucked into the 9-5 doldrum of life and just wander aimlessly from place to place. After spending some time thinking about this and seeing my own…

Welcome Spring.

The only thing that separates us from the dark, cold, blustery winter and the bright, warm, glorious summer has arrived…spring is here. Thank goodness for the cheer and happiness that spring brings forth. Gone are the dreary days of sweaters, heavy jackets, scarves, and the dullness that hangs in the air as we all eagerly await the brighter days to…

Adventure

ad·ven·ture: an unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity. Maybe it’s the childlike spirit of hoping for something great around each corner, or the excitement of being somewhere unfamiliar, but there is so much joy to be had in exploring, wandering, and discovering. Something about the unfamiliar puts us on the edge of our seats and keeps us in…
