Gather | A Holiday Tea

  I am loving sharing fall inspiration this past week and we will keep sharing through Thanksgiving. I am peeking ahead for today because I have been fortunate to be included in the Farmhouse Holiday Series and today we are sharing our kitchens dressed up for the holidays and also sharing a favorite recipe. Leading up to Thanksgiving and into Christmas the house just FEELS cozier. I love the extra textures, the smells, the baking and preparing. I love the …

A Brand New E-Course {and a giveaway too}

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED Last fall I launched Creatively Made Home {creating a home that reflects your heart in everyday living}.   I wanted to create a course that celebrated what really matters in your home…..you, family and friends.   I also wanted to celebrate making life beautiful in the everyday.   My heart was to create a course that encouraged women to open the doors of their home because of what was inside of them…not just what was …

Introvert {extrovert}

{all photos from a recent trip with friends to wine country} I used to think I was an extrovert. What I am discovering is that I am an introvert (AKA hermit) and an occasional extrovert (AKA party animal). Every 2-4 months or so I will get together with friends here in the US. Sometimes it is for business (teaching a class etc) and sometimes just for fun. If you read my blog you might think I am extremely social, travel …

My Cup Runneth Over {the perfect break at the perfect time}

My Grandma Jeanne would look around the room at her large family, raise her glass, smile and then say, “My cup runneth over”. That is all she needed to say.

I find myself saying my grandma’s sweet words more and more. We have been working so …

I threw out the invitation to some of my favorite gals that lived all over the US and hoped that someone would be …

I don’t care that there is snow on the ground {I am showing you this post anyways}

Snow is covering my town, rooftops and weighing down our tree branches right now. I live in Colorado so it will be fall again in two days I am most positive! There are so many things that we do that I don’t take the time to show you. I can get pretty behind in sharing photos for the grandparents (you didn’t think this blog was just for you?:-)). So, even though I can barely type right now because of the …

Laughter and tears {girl’s trip}

I got home on Wednesday night really late. I had just gotten home from a four day getaway with friends. My friend Christy had put a little group of her closest friends together. Lucky for me…some of her closest friends are girls I love too! We all rented a house in the mountains of Utah. We didn’t have a plan. That is good because all we really did was sit around in our pajamas and laugh, cry and then laugh …
