  • 2018: A Year to Simplify

    Hopes, dreams, wishes, plans, resolutions; whatever you call them, the start of the new year is always the sweetest time to write these desires of our hearts down. For me?

  • 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.

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…
