I decorate our home with things that make me feel good.
Most of our belongings are not fancy at all,
having been handed down from my
Grandparents or my Mom and Dad.
These the pieces that help weave together
the history and story of our family.

Within These Walls

When we decided to put our home up here in the attic space of our business, we knew it would be tight quarters...and the boys’ room was the smallest of them all. But we’re big fans of sharing rooms in our family; in fact, even if we lived in Buckingham palace, I’d still have them share a room.

There’s safety in numbers, and I believe the time they spend in their little room together is where the friendships and ties that bind are made. The hours they spend talking each night will be some of their most precious memories, I’m sure of it. And while they don’t have a lot in here, I truly believe they have everything they need.

We have very few toys- we don’t have electronics that they can lock themselves up with behind closed doors, yet- they are happy. They have a cozy bed for sleeping, a few good books for reading, and they have each other. They don’t need a lot, friends...just love really. And I hope they always know there’s plenty of that to go around within these little walls.

The Most Coziest Time Of Year

This morning we woke to a dark autumn day:
pouring rain, chilly floors beneath our fresh-outta-bed-feet,
thuds of chestnuts falling from our big ol’ tree out back...this is it!
It’s the mooooost coziest time of year.

The Things That Stay With You

Looking at outtakes, just trying to get a photo with my babies. While one is shoving my hair into my mouth, I find the gem of my other snuggled up, taking comfort in the smell that could only be "mama".

It’s these sort of things that stay with you forever. The kind of things that I’ll revisit in my mind years from now, and miss so very much.

After School Snack

But the days I have time to, it brings me great joy to love them this way. To take time to delight in being their mother. It’s as much a treat for me as it is for them.
One of my favorite fall treats to make: apple nachos. I don’t always make the boys an after school snack, and, in fact, most days I’m scrambling to the bus stop after my alarm goes off to tell me not to forget my child. But the days I have time to, it brings me great joy to love them this way. To take time to delight in being their mother. It’s as much a treat for me as it is for them.
