a day in the life

it’s a rare occasion that my husband gets to work from home, but i delight in it when he does. he creates this kind of buzz around the home that is energetic and motivating. he always has music playing (i usually work in silence) and a delicious french press brewing. we were working together last week letting bear play in between our stations and i looked up to this scene midday. i grabbed my camera quickly documented the happy moment. i love my boys so much.

3 pieces of art

3 pieces of art

now that we’ve been living in our home for a while (10 months to be exact) and things are beginning to settle down after having bear, i’m determined to finish some decorating. i’ve got several bare walls and have been planning to add some special artwork throughout the house. here are few of the pieces i’ve been eying- aren’t they so beautiful? they all have special meaning to me. some things take time- like having a family, following your dream and loving your job. i always need to remind myself to worry less (it’s a constant struggle). and living in the mountains is near and dear to my heart. it’s so cozy here.

have nothing print by kelly cummings

though i’ve lived by this philosophy for a long time,  i’ve never seen it so beautifully illustrated. when it comes to things in my home, if it’s not something i cherish then it’s out. each time we move and set up a new home, i like to take things slowly. i really try to feel out which spaces need what and try not to just start putting things away without giving each piece much consideration. it’s turns out to be a slow process, but one well worth the effort. this is also why i love to thrift and antique when we travel places. some of the most special pieces in our home have come from different places that we’ve been together. i love it when the things in my home have a story to tell.

Aug 12 // reflections

i’m sad to say our time away has come to an end, but i’m also happy to be back in the mountains. upon reflecting, the time we spent away was much needed. it rested our souls and nourished our spirits. however we’ve welcomed the cooler weather, afternoon showers and comforts of home with open arms. there’s just no place like home, you know?

the august break this month, i’m excited to be participating in the august break, where i’ll be sharing photos with you from my personal life each day and taking a break from writing “regular” content for going home to roost. meanwhile, i’ll be preparing our hearts and our home for baby roost’s arrival and taking some very special time to spend with my love before we welcome our first son into the world. find out more about the august break and how to join here.

lately, i’ve been all but obsessed with bringing a few trees inside. after adding this tree to our space, i just can’t get over how fresh and airy it makes the place feel! plus, they work  as incredibly good air filters. i’ve done quite a bit of research on which plants are best for indoor use, and i’ll be sharing them with you a little later this week, so stay tuned!

do you have any trees in your home? if so, what kind is your favorite?
