This is just a little peek into some of my favorite spots/pieces in our Hawaii home! I have a constant, rolling list of things I want to do or add, but it’s also good to just sit in contentment every once in a while and share progress – so it felt like time for this […]
I haven’t been able to blog as much as I might’ve liked in the past week or so because I’ve been pretty busy with work and preparing for our first Hawaii guests! Christian’s family will be visiting us this week, and we really want to make sure we have everything we need to make their […]
Do you ever get super, nonsensically excited about really little things? Yeah, me too. I think it’s so much more interesting to love things than to hate them.

I don’t think I even once put on a […]
Once upon a time, there was a girl who thought all rainy days should mean a free pass from having to perform life; that they should be spent with good music, warm coffee and a little whimsy. She loved when the sky stayed dark after the sun should’ve already bathed everything in sepia light, and […]
