2014 Resolutions

Yay, we are in a new year! I’m very excited to move into 2014 (even though 2013 had some awesome highlights!) and I am hoping to achieve some goals this year (I actually really like the idea of resolutions, I know some people really don’t, or feel like the word has a lot to do…

Christmas Open House {part 3, the last rooms}

I hope everyone’s holidays were lovely, our’s were some of the best we’ve ever had! They were quiet and just the 4 of us, which is my absolute ideal! I haven’t forgotten (for a change) to post the last of the house, although the pictures are terrible (which I only realized after the fact) and…

Christmas Open House {part 2}

Today I am sharing our Korean apartment part two, here’s part one in case you missed it. I’m starting in the entry way again,  BUT this time we are turning right (thrilling right? 🙂 ) To the right in our apartment, is the living/dining area, the family-room, and the kitchen. I decided that yesterday’s post…

Halloween 2013 {part 3}

Today I am sharing the Halloween costume that I might secretly like the most out of the 3 I worked on this year; (and not just because it took less work than any of the others,) but because of how *Isaac* it really is! Isaac decided that he wanted to be his musical hero Weird…

Halloween 2013 {part 2}

Hello! Today was a brilliant day here in Spain; I got to go to the Royal Tapestry Workshop and see the weavers in action, which was awesome (but alas no pictures allowed.) BUT I do have a rather picture intensive post today; in complete contrast to yesterday’s puppy costume, today I have Emmie’s Witch costume…
