    Christmas Tree 2016

    Christmas trees are my thing. My thang, y’all! I’ve had some favorites over the years, my Scandinavian tree, the Woodland theme that got featured on RealSimple.com, and last year’s cheery Vintage Tinsel tree.

    This year I went a different way. And it has a lot of meaning to me. Every bit telling my story.

    Little white birds floating somewhere between heaven and earth. Free. Resting in the fact they’re taken care of.

    Red berries and bare winter branches.

    Tiny white lights and tiny silver ornaments that reflect that light. Read more

    Welcome December

    You’re one of my favorite months. You’d be my favorite but you’re gone too fast. That’s why November beats you, because I still have you to look forward to when it’s only November.

    I love the cold. Cheeks red from it. Cuddles to get warm. Coffee and cider to fight the chill. Kitties warming my lap, fuzzy socks, blankets made by people I love.

    I love how people want to be nice. They want to give, to remember those who don’t have enough and make sure they do. We call and visit our family and friends. We even send them real-life, actual post-office-delivered mail! Read more

    So Very Thankful

    So much to be thankful for. So very much.

    You guys. For supporting an artist. For saying, yes, art does have value! For supporting me.

    I have such beautiful people in my life. My family. My friends. Seriously amazing friends.

    I have basic necessities that so often get taken for granted. And I have so much more.

    I’m a creator. Not everyone gets to be one. Not everyone wants to, haha! But I’m so glad I do on both counts.

    Thank you, Lord. For blessing me. For your faithfulness. For loving me, even when I don’t love myself. For renewing my dreams and nourishing my soul. For being everything you promised you would be.

    Sunflower Sisters

    My BFF came to visit and ohmygosh did we ever live it up. Pumpkin spice lattes, sushi, laughing so hard we got bellyaches, clearance sales, thrift store shopping. And then there were the sunflowers. Talk about great timing! The most Kansas experience she could ever have.
