March Round-Up | Free Beauty Found on the Internet

Magnolia Branches | January Refresh

  Once the house is clear of Christmas and spring in Colorado is still months away…there is this in-between of seasons.   This is the time when I like to organize, still honor winter with textures and layers throughout the home, candles, pine branches from our land and each late January I splurge on Magnolia branches! They really do feel like a splurge but they are this sweet reminder that spring is coming (in about four months in Colorado) and …

Modern + Cozy Christmas Kitchen | Seasons of Home Holiday Decor Series

The older I get the more I just go more with the flow and I don’t stick to rules (and most of the time the rules I created for myself). Even a few years ago I made sure we didn’t decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving. I felt like it wasn’t honoring of Thanksgiving (like Thanksgiving was all upset about it or something). Instead, I am just diving into cozy and we will enjoy it even longer. We are still present …

Our New Home In Pictures

It has been 2 1/2 months since we have been in our new home and land.  In some ways it feels like we have been here forever and then we are reminded we don’t even know this land or home yet.  Before we moved in we had the whole interior painted white and all of the window frames painted black (except for the children’s bedroom window frames were painted white).  We have never done this before and it was the …
