He has Risen – Happy Easter

Easter is so much more than cute bunnies, easter baskets, pastel colors, colored eggs, baby chicks, and lots of candy. Easter is about new life. Life that’s been given to us that we don’t deserve and that came at a great cost. There is no way I could live with out sin. I go to(…)

House Decor {Final Reveal}

House Decor {Final Reveal}

So this is it!!! I’m finished! Finally! I’m so tickled and so pleased with each corner! I’m also happy that it’s still kid friendly. There isn’t anything (except my grandmother’s quilt on the corner of the couch) that isn’t off limits for them! And it was done on the cheap so I’m not attached to(…)

House Decor {Design} I’m going to attempt a mini series as I work on redoing our living room. It was originally designed when I moved in to this house before I was married and definitely before kids. It had more of a modern feel with red, gray, black and white being the main colors. It(…)

Many of my friends know of our Sunday tradition… it’s a day of rest and I really LOVE how the pioneers really took that literally and didn’t cook, wash, or do any work of any kind! Now I do think it kinda went to the extreme, but I also think we do not take it(…)
