This originally posted in November of 2017. As I come upon a year post-surgery and in the spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness month, I wanted to take the opportunity to share it again before I write an update. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment or reach out to me […]

I tripped up the stairs.  I was headed to our bedroom to finish working for the day, holding an open laptop, a fresh cup of warm coffee, and my phone. My daughter, Faith, was following me, and as I took the first step, I turned to my head to tell her to stay put. I […]

Happy Friday! Welcome to this week’s Favorite Five – a short and sweet post where I share five things I love. Here’s what I’m crushing on this week… Aerie + Abercrombie – Yes, it’s like I’m seventeen again. For real, though, I am LOVING revisiting these stores lately.

My mom is incredible in the kitchen. She can cook and bake and create all the things and is constantly trying new recipes. Growing up, it was always a treat to find her pulling something warm out of the oven, and my sisters and I were always eager to get ahold The Bowl to test out […]

A few weeks ago, Brandon and I decided to start baking our way through an old recipe box that we purchased from a local antique mall. (If you haven’t read all about that, start here!) I named the former recipe box owner Barb, mostly because it seems fitting for the era in which many of […]

I realize that we’re well into the age of digital planners and shared calendar apps (Brandon and I totally use one), but I still find a lot of value in a good ol’ fashioned pen-and-paper list. Typically, I sit down every Monday and plan out my week on paper, just so I can visualize it […]

It’s officially fall, though I’m not quite sure the weather is on board yet. Cloudy and moody? Yes. Rainy and humid with temps in the mid 70s? Also yes. Let’s shoot for sunny and crisp, Mmmmmmmkay, Mother Nature? Anyway, here’s what I’m crushin’ on this week… Roman Apple Cake – Omiword, it’s actually like a mouthful of autumn, […]

Several years ago, Brandon and I were at a local antique mall and happened upon an old, wooden box, stuffed with recipes that dated back into the early 1970s. There were those lovingly typed onto recipes cards, some written in scrolling cursive onto looseleaf, while others were neatly trimmed out of the newspaper or shared […]

Hey, hey and happy Wednesday! Though I’m sipping on a warm cup of coffee flavored with pumpkin spice creamer, it’s a chilly NINETY DEGREES in Kentucky today. What even. Fall is four days away and I’m all maybe I need to buy more sunscreen and host a barbecue this weekend???  Thankfully, Mother Nature is supposedly arriving […]

Gals. I am 100% loving the plain tee trend. It’s so good. Easy, classic and stylish. You can dress it up, dress it down, wear it to school, church, date night, the gym. All the things. Also, CHEAP. I have approximately zero experience as a fashion blogger, as evidenced by the amazingly awkward pics snapped […]
