What We’re Sowing

by Edie Wadsworth on May 15, 2014


I married a biology major who loves and studies birds and trees.  In the house before this one,  he planted 90—yes you read that right—90! trees.  His middle name is Martin so maybe he comes by it honestly.  In this house, I lost count at around 40.  He was planning the trees before the foundation […]


The 3 Secrets to Radical Hospitality

by Edie Wadsworth on April 15, 2014


My love for hospitality began when I was ten years old and a giant ornate bar was delivered to our dining room complete with a crystal whiskey decanter and a set of brandy sniffers.  I don’t think we had ever owned anything quite so nice and I was completely awestruck at the possibilities.  My sister […]

Love. On Purpose {A Link-Up}

by Edie Wadsworth on February 27, 2013

This year, I made a goal to live with more intention-—to find ways to spend my time, my money, and my gifts more wisely. It’s so easy for us to fill our lives with so much stuff that we leave little room to serve others, to dream our dreams,  to make art, to love well. This […]


Working Hard, Making Margin {on purpose}

by Edie Wadsworth on January 28, 2013

January is always a frenzy for me. I reevaluate everything. What am I doing and why am I doing what I’m doing?
