Korea

Happy Birthday Katy! {and my Lille Dress}

I know I have been insanely quiet around here, so much has been going on, I just haven’t had time to post (and frankly my computer has pretty much not been unpacked in weeks.) We have left Korea, fit in a Hawaiian vacation as a stop over on our way to the US, and spending…

2014’s Resolutions, How Did I Do?

    Hello! Are you so excited about it being 2015? I am looking forward to so much of what’s ahead, but before I get too far ahead of myself, I thought I would look back at my resolutions from last year and give myself a grade for how well I did! Since there is…

Emmie’s 11th Birthday {flashback post}

The other day I shared a post about Emmie’s small and understated 12th birthday party, and today I am back with her 11th birthday (I am so behind on posts….) Emmie decided that she wanted to have a circus theme for her party, and we tried really hard to thread the theme throughout within the…

Family Photos 2014

We just had our family photos taken, by a family friend (and awesome photographer) Christa Elza and it has been so fun to see the kids through someone else’s lens (I take so many pictures of them for clothing posts, but the pictures are rarely OF them so much as the clothes.) I just love the pictures, 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…

Christmas Open House {part 1}

Our apartment building recently had a Christmas Open House, where 9 apartments in the building decorated for Christmas, and then opened their home to be toured by other members of the community; it was a really fun event, and it was really cool to see how different each of our homes are, even though we…

The Fireplace Decked Out For Christmas

 So Paul reminded me that I never posted pictures of the finished Christmas Stockings, so I decided I would quickly add a picture showing the whole fireplace area. If you remember this is the fireplace that I built for, So You Think You’re Crafty, and it runs off of gel fuel. (although, I have no…
