Project Graduation

Want to know what I did this weekend?   I did what I do best.  I redecorranged—that’s a technical term for ‘redecorating by rearranging what you already have’.    I gave this room a makeover a few years ago for my daughter Caiti and we have both loved it so!  It has such a relaxing, artsy, […] Read more…

Friday Hikes

Today, I’m joining Melissa from The Inspired Room as we celebrate and cherish the beauty, right where we are and right where we live.  Click here for more weekend inspiration. We live 5 minutes from a beautiful state park.   For the past 2 or 3 months, we’ve taken the girls there every Friday afternoon […] Read more…

The Fall

I don’t know if I’ve ever told you about this place. A magical little sanctuary that Stevie labored countless months and years over. A quaint little cottage that he had built for us in the middle of beautiful mountainous country, with a spring fed pond he researched and designed and personally stocked with all kinds […] Read more…

Exhibit A: Honor’s Day

It’s a curious thing, this homeschooling. There are so many things I love about it. The closeness (can’t peel them off me–EVER) with the children, the control over their environment, the classical training, the ability to impart Lutheran doctrine and practice, and even learning to be IN my house 24/7, are all reasons I’m beginning […] Read more…
