Blog : cozy

An oldie. I mean me, not the photo. Kidding, but only a little. I’m ready for some Ca sunshine after all of this rain!! But I’ll be the first to admit that rain on thanksgiving and while Christmas tree shopping was both magic & misery. Moody and cozy for the holiday but a wet tree, 3 kids & no umbrella sounds like the beginning of a bad joke! But bless these babes there were smiles all around and now warm baths while we wait for the tree to try a bit. I’m thankful it’s the weekend and for a warm home filled with the people I love so deeply! And a Christmas tree!!! .

Don’t be predictable with your style, add splashes of unexpected color and print, a hair scarf or pair of earrings a little outside of your comfort zone. Even if no one else notices, do it for you! (Chances are they will notice and they’ll feel inspired by your guts to give it a go!) Add something that you love but have been too nervous to try – most of the time you’ll feel more excited and confident the longer you wear it. Style isn’t about a certain shirt or accessory, it’s a representation of who you are! What words would you choose to describe your style? How about the words you would use to describe your personality? There is rarely just one word for either because we aren’t defined by one element, we are intricate and wonderfully complex! Just as our wardrobes should be! 📷 @kaleighdsimmonsphoto

I was swooning over this sweet little corner at last nights dinner party! @cvbecker hosted & spoiled us with some of the tastiest fall foods & sincere conversation. I was reminded how necessary it is to be present & aware, to slow down & invest in the special moments but also the mundane. The warm & delicious food, the soft lighting, the laughing between two friends in a separate conversation, the earthy smell of the hand soap, the sacred & vulnerable emotions – there was so much to embrace. My family recently endured the tragic loss of my spirited aunt & one of the girls at last nights dinner is coming up on 6 months since losing her twin brother. It was a whirlwind of things appreciated & treasured; each one of us contributing significance & offering a safe place to let our hair down. Find rest in the place you’re in, wander through your wilderness of uncertainty with grace & hope, treasure the people close to you & remind yourself that the very breath you breath is a gift.

This no jacket November weather in Michigan is awwwweeeesome! Heeyyyyo! The California in me is thankful for every warmer day we get! What about you?! Do you prefer warm weather or cold? I would take the snow however, I just don’t want the cold! •
If you’ve never purchased a scarf from @hm you should seriously consider it! They’re around $20/$25 and all of my favorite ones come from there, including this gray one. Soft, warm & always have great colors! Shopping for quality things doesn’t always mean spending more money, (I mean let’s be real, most times it does… but not always!) there are always treasures hiding in the ‘right price’ stores so keep an eye out for them! You might be surprised what some brands offer for the prices! Side note – I love cyber Monday, shopping + pjs and a mystery podcast all at once?! Sign me up!! I hope you guys found some killer deals! Happy Tuesday! 📷 by the amazing and wonderful (go follow her!!) @kelseyhettinga .

I am a country born city girl and my heart belongs to both of those worlds! Driving down a dirt road enveloped by a canopy of color splashed trees or taking a stroll surrounded by sky rise buildings and coffee shops filled with busy people both offer me fulfillment. I want to own chickens. I also want to own every Kate Spade backpack ever made. Siiiigggh… life goals.

Just sitting around, pondering this little thing called life. What a beautiful thing to share with so many lovely people! My world is my people – the ones so far in distance but so close in heart. The ones right around the corner who are a part of my every day, my celebrations and the moments of building character. The ones I have yet to meet. My husband and kids (oh man, I love those people! 😍) motivate me to be the best possible version of myself! For them, for me, for all of my people! I want to offer my heart to the world and watch it grow in countless ways; in love, wholeness, creativity, relationship, trust, confidence, sincerity… if not for my people, all of the people, then for what? We are called to be His hands and feet, it’s all about the people!
