Mudroom Makeover

Hello friends, I’m back to blogging! Our summer was busy and fulfilling with many projects to check off our ever-growing list and lots of time spent playing with the sweetest bunch of children we know. The first project I’d like to share with you is one that has been mostly complete for quite a few […]

Homegrown Roses & Great Grandpa’s Music | LittleLoves

Between vacation, home improvement projects, a house flip project, and an even bigger project (that you will just have to patiently wait to hear about) I’m afraid blogging has slipped to a non-priority. I look forward to a day when writing is not one of the fist things that must be set aside during a […]

Plots Twists, Two Months, and a Birthday | #LittleLoves

Hot tea, spring rain, and a soft blanket are my companions as the little ones nap and I reflect. What fun our days and weeks are becoming as my children begin to take on personalities of their own. Our walls must be soaked with giggles! Read I really enjoyed this post from the blog Under the […]

Running Auntie, Grandma’s Jewelry, and Our Baby Barista | #LittleLoves

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a mommy blogger with four children must be in want of some quiet. Doesn’t the quote go something like that? Alright, all jokes aside, I really did slack on my review of last week’s little loves. I wasn’t planning on playing catch up, but I decided that for consistency sake, […]

Frilly Dresses and an Engagement | #LittleLoves

There have been so many sweet little things to love the past two weeks, so here’s another go at #LittleLoves with Coffee, Work, Sleep, Repeat. Read For those of you wondering I have yet to finish “Mansfield Park.” (Where once I would devour a book in a day, it now often takes me weeks – sometimes […]

The Joy in Taking Five

We were sitting on the floor of her bedroom, my little helper and I. She piled all of Judah’s clothes in another basket as I quickly folded the girl’s clothes and stuffed three separate drawers full of them. We were moving in something of a rhythm. With the drawers – *open, shut, open, shut.* And […]

Delighting in the Little Loves

While looking to other bloggers for inspiration and encouragement in my own online venture I stumbled across a blog by a woman from the UK who puts a weekly focus on delighting in the lovely little things in her life. Her idea is to highlight the small things she loved that week from what she’s read, watched, heard, […]

A New Character in Our Storybook

On the Eighth of March, with the clock’s hands just minutes away from midnight, the Author began a bright new chapter in our story. Three little pixies, asleep at the time, had become the big sisters of a darling baby boy with dark hair and long legs just like their daddy’s. We call our sweet little […]

2016: A Gallery of Broken Things

It was an imperfect photograph of a broken egg on a dusty kitchen floor. And I smiled.   That smile was far from reaching my face during the frustrating moment when an egg slipped through sleepy fingers and landed useless on the floor. I was rushing to fill the demanding tummies of three wiggling girls in their […]

Growing Again

  I know the signs well. That slight nauseousness just noticeable enough to be irritating, yet not debilitating. An intense craving for salt; only strange to me because of the way it manifests itself in an overwhelming desire for – of all things – Top Ramen. And of course a new layer of exhaustion, which […]
