Making a Home


This semester I am taking a surface design class. We spend most of our time dyeing fabric- something I had never done prior to this class. For our first project we had to make something (anything really) out of 6 or more square samples we had made in class based off our favorite place. I based mine off of home. Here are the photos from my project.










Map Love


I have been on a map kick lately. Since re-doing our bedroom, I went from zero to three maps in our bedroom. We have our corkboard map, illustrated map of Paris, and now a vintage globe. It makes me feel more traveled than I am.

Don’t they just make you want to travel?

Timothy and I are heading to Florida for spring break again. I would love to travel beyond our 50 states, but I will settle for Florida to escape these frigid days.

Valentine’s Day Lovin’

I find Valentine’s Day to be a very inspiring day. Today I gathered a few images from my “inspiration” board on Pinterest. Something about these photos just makes me smile and feel like sharing love.

I hope your day is full of love and joy and appreciation. xoxo

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. I hope you take time to cherish those you love and recognize the One who showed the ultimate sacrifice in love. 

Day One




New Addition

Over the weekend we ventured back to South Dakota to visit the families. While there we seemed to have attracted a ball of fur.  This ball of fur is cute, it bites, and pees on my carpet. However, it is mostly cute.



“Hi. My name was Molly but that is too close to my new mommy’s name, so now I need a new name.”

She enjoys cuddling, scratching on my pillows, gnawing on my coffee table, biting fingers, and eating snowballs.

Overall, she is adorable. For now, this is a two week test run to see how our busy schedules go with a little puppy (4 months old).

Hopefully we survive.

Frilly Skirt Land

I have been craving skirts and high heels lately. I have no where to wear them and it has been 2 degrees or colder, so my motivation for making my style cravings a reality is nearly non-existent. In the mean time I will just be in la-la land of frilly skirts.

Valentine’s Day Dress Up

I love a good excuse to dress up and wear my fanciest heels, and Valentine’s Day typically seems like the best excuse to convince my man to get dressed up with me.

I threw together several outfit combos with pieces from Modcloth. I love how playful and feminine their clothes are.

And remember to finish each look off with swipe of some red lipstick!
