My hope is that this space serves YOU and helps to make your life feel a bit more elevated and a lot more joyful. I will be sharing simple recipes, affordable finds (and what to do with them), tips and tricks, our home (wherever the Air Force and life takes us), and a lot of joyful life in between.

I wrote the words I’m about to share below nearly two months ago now but never mustered up the courage or time to finish my thoughts and hit ‘publish’. As I went to edit my drafts today, I noticed this post, opened it, and read through these words. I almost deleted them and then instead […]

Salmon Chowder

Nikita’s (Dad’s) Salmon Chowder Recipe

A couple of weeks ago a sweet friend of mine, Nikita, hosted a gathering in her home for our friends. Everyone brought a part of the meal while she made the main dish, salmon chowder. You guys… This. Salmon. Chowder. Stephen and I loved it so much we hadn’t stopped talking about it since. It […]

The Birth of Our Sophie James

Sophie James, You have been with us on this side of life for three months today and goodness has it flown. I remember the day you joined us so very vividly but I want to make sure to get it down “on paper” so that just like with your sister, you can always be reminded […]

Patterned Tile Bathroom
3/22/22

Considering Stephen and I started this in June 2021, it feels pretty surreal to finally be sharing the reveal of the primary bathroom in our Mississippi home. And to think that we thought it would take us two months max!!! Oh bless our precious hearts… Instead of two, it took us nine months to complete […]

Small but Mighty 2022 Garden Plans

We would love to have a homestead on a good sized chunk of land someday. I have no idea when that day will come but it most likely will be once Stephen is out of or close to the end of his Air Force career. Only God knows when that’ll be so something that I’ve […]

Kitchen Plans for our Mississippi Home

Call us crazy but we decided that we would do our best to tackle one more space in our Mississippi home before our newest Tupta Tot arrives – the center of the home, the kitchen! Although it can sound pretty daunting, it’s actually not going to be as intense as the primary bathroom was for […]

A couple of weeks ago we shared HERE that we are overjoyed to welcome another Tupta Tot to our crew in a few short months! We are just so grateful and excited to get the opportunity to parent another child and watch Ellie thrive as an older sister. Here are the questions you sent in […]

The Superfood Drink We Have Daily + February Challenge!

I know that some people don’t want to use essential oils (which makes me so sad… They are such a gift!) but aside from that, there are two Young Living products that I believe should be in everyone’s home: Thieves Household Cleaner and Ningxia Red. Ningxia Red is our superfood antioxidant drink that we drink […]

Christmas Decor that made me say, “OH MY LANTA Ellie, I love this!” in Target Today

Ellie and I had to drive to Tuscaloosa today to pick up the wood that we need for our master bedroom makeover since it wasn’t available in Columbus. It’s an hour and fifteen minutes away from us so anytime we’re there we must stop at Target (and Chipotle), right?! Target recently started putting their Christmas […]
