I got tired of trying to guess what drawer of the 60 would contain what I was looking for, so I started labeling this morning… My glue-gun adventure was short-lived, so I gave up on it. But not before Mustard chewed up an entire glue stick while I wasn’t looking. Good times.

Might seem obvious, but I haven’t been posting much here lately. For the first time in a very long time, I actually haven’t wanted to. That’s an odd feeling to have, because I love writing and sharing pictures with all of you, and I’ve come to the realization that I simply haven’t been in the [...]

holy moments

We had a weekend of holy moments, and I’m not talkin’ about Easter. Here’s the run-down, complete with blurry iphone pictures… The washer and dryer that have been sitting amid the upstairs construction (for two years now) were installed.

After taking these [...]

I spent three afternoons [...]

hello july

Happy July! I’ve always loved the month of July. I think that growing up in the Finger Lakes makes you love the warm summer months because the lakes are warm enough to swim in by the holiday weekend. We’re not headed to the lakes this year, but I am turning 30 on Sunday (woohoo!) and [...]

studio fun and house blog

I’m excited to finally be to the point of figuring out what I want the studio to look like. Admittedly, I’m a bit hesitant: completely renovating a house and starting over on every single inch of it is not only stressful but starting completely from scratch is overwhelming. It’s one thing to renovate a room; [...]
