• 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]

A Ray of Light

There are certain people in this world who absolutely radiate light. After spending the last week feeling pretty low, yesterday I got to spend the afternoon with my dear friend, Brooke. This girl completely embodies the beauty and love of Christ in all that she does. Whether she is snapping pictures for her up and coming photography business, Poeima Photography, or…

Finding Joy…(even in hard times)

Life has been really hard lately. I’ve found myself in one of those lulls where all I want to do is curl up in a cozy blanket, eat cupcakes, and feel sorry for myself. YEP…I’ll be honest, it’s been on of those kinds of weeks. A few weeks ago, I started this blog with The Joy of Sharing, where I shared my…

Mondays…

5am is my least favorite part of Mondays. With my alarm buzzing away in my ears, I am forced to drag myself out of my warm, cozy bed and face the day in a permanently under heated apartment. Through halfway closed eyes I stumble to the kitchen in a sleepy daze repeating to myself…”need. coffee. now.” Glamourous, huh? Everyone thinks…

The Joy of Sharing

There is so much joy that can be found in sharing with others. I’m not talking the first grade version of sharing; “Here friend, you can have one of my Oreo’s today!’ I’m talking sharing of a deeper kind. One that comes out of a pure, selfless, and loving heart. Over the last few years, I have really come to…
