A few months ago, I found a dusty blush velvet chair to fill the empty space in our bedroom where the glider had been since we moved in. I had always envisioned hanging a beautiful piece of artwork in that corner, and as that became the final step toward completing our bedroom, I grew all […]


I hope you had a lovely Easter! Ours was wonderful and we are so grateful. We headed to 6:30 AM Mass (our barely-in-time arrival was captured by the news, ha!), enjoyed a big brunch at home, and then soaked in the sunshine at our friends’ house all afternoon. We have spent almost every Easter since […]


For all of the many, many beautiful Easter tables I’ve admired online over the years, I don’t recall ever seeing one that was specifically faith-inspired. That is why I knew I not only wanted to share a Catholic Easter table for this month’s For This Feast post, I also wanted to round up some friends […]

Do you feel like the way you dress right now, on a day-to-day basis, is a true reflection of your personal style? 2. If not, why do you think that is? As […]


Laduree-inspired first birthday party

After Charlie’s second birthday party, Dave and I started talking about the rhythm of birthday parties we wanted to establish in our family. When Charlie was the only one, it wasn’t a big deal to throw a huge party every year…but knowing we wanted more kids, we suspected we would eventually want to scale that […]
