Growing Trees Indoors


As a crazy plant lady, I have loved growing trees indoors for a few years now. I wanted to share some of my favorites with you for those who are looking to grow their plant collection and try their hand at a few larger friends.

Faith like a grain of mustard seed

"For truly I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you."

I have been reading though Corrie Ten Boom's book, I Stand at the Door and Knock, and it has been so refreshing and uplifting for my soul. I struggle with doubting God more often than I would like to admit. This book contains forty devotions by the author that were only recently discovered in the last few years. It has been so encouraging to my faith to read account after account of God answering prayer and coming through in miraculous ways for His children.

Essential Oils Summer Recipes


It has been a hot minute since I blogged! I am hoping to become more faithful at it again but being a full-time wife and mom, and booking more photo shoots, my time seems to be so full lately. I do miss it so much though and am trying to be better at it!

I wanted to share with you all a few essential oil summer recipes that I have collected from my favorite oil company, Vitruvi. I absolutely adore their stone diffusers, fabulous oils, and minimalist packaging.

Just today, I haven't been feeling very good so I decided while the babe naps to make me a nice glass of lemon water, lounge on my bed, blog for a bit, and diffuse some oils. It smells SO good in my bedroom right now. I decided to try the "summer night in" recipe and gosh, its amazing.

I'm posting some oil recipes below to try for yourself! These are all super simple concoctions and a great way to incorporate some natural products into your home and lifestyle.

Colette's First Easter & Turning Five Months


This Easter was the sweetest one I have ever remembered. It was a very slow and relaxing day, celebrating what Christ has done for us and His power over death. We enjoyed a quiet family afternoon after church, grabbing take-out and going home to put the baby down for a nap. After Josh and I were able to spend some sweet time together (quality time as a couple is far less frequent with our little addition ;), we watched Colette discover her first Easter basket. 

It was so much fun putting some sweet things together for my precious girl. We snapped some photos of the occasion and afterwards I began cooking a casserole for our family Easter dinner. We spent the rest of the day at my parents' house where my sister captured this precious photo of our little family.

Favorite Target finds


I have always been obsessed with Target but since being home with our little girl, it's truly become one of our favorite date spots and outings for this girl to get out of the house for awhile, browse the aisles, and soak up all the inspiration. :)

I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite finds that I have gathered over the past few weeks and months. I love discovering a good Target find and so I thought I would return the favor..... enjoy! (All items are linked underneath each photo).

Baby's First Easter Basket

I have had too much fun creating Colette her first Easter basket because, let's be honest, this basket is more for Mama than for baby at this stage. Even still, filling it with things she will enjoy and use has been such an enjoyable little project.

March // What I Read



Felicity 
by Mary Oliver 

This book had peaked my interest for quite some time because I had heard various people talking about it and the beautiful cover also drew me in. I must say that although a few of the poems were mildly entertaining, as a whole, I was quite disappointed. I also understand that this is a very unpopular opinion so we can agree to disagree. Maybe I don't have much of a poetic soul but I just found most of the poems to be hard to understand and wasn't touched deeply at all...if any.
