Happy New Year! Just a quick post. The house is a mess, although I was planning on taking a break after Christmas – I’m already into planning out the rest of 2018 and I seem to be fighting a never ending sinus cold. I purchased some new additions for our our bedroom this year – new side table lamps and a gorgeous pillow that seem to add the perfect new layers to the room.

I’d buy exfoliators, tones, and skin care lines – and spent a ton because I would try one line, then try another later. Things were piling up in my linen closet and on my vanity. Continue Reading →
I’m all about creating a peaceful, quiet home this season. In part for self preservation, also because it’s a lovely feeling to have a calm home. The main thing I’m doing is going sloooow this Christmas and not putting too much pressure on myself. But I’m also upping my essential oil game in the house to bring peace and relaxation.

In the Summer we started the process of adding a new family member to our family – a Turkish Angora kitten, who we named Charlie Pickles. We drove to a town 4 hours away, stayed in a hotel over night as a family and the next morning picked up Charlie to bring home. Continue Reading →
