Titus' MN barnwood round kitchen table-9

Titus has done it again. Remember when Cate got her table last fall? So beautiful, right? I knew I had to have one! The idea of gathering my family ’round a table built especially for us sounded so amazing. I knew as soon as we moved into our new house, we needed Titus to come to our dining rescue. Our informal dining area is a walk-through. People walk from our kitchen …

Punta Cana 2015-WIW

I’ve been procrastinating. I just couldn’t get myself to edit our vacation photos due to the fact that I have one billion snapshots to go through. It’s daunting to say the least. I packed my good DSLR and between the 5 of us, 5 iphotos are full of pics. Now that’s ridiculous. I finally spent some time today sorting through my Lightroom folders. I don’t even want to admit …

I’m so sorry for these pics! Seriously. I’m sad you aren’t seeing photos of white powdery sand and ocean blown palm trees. Instead you’re about to see What I Wore smack dab in the middle of Minnesota. Not that I don’t adore my state but I enjoy it the most during the summer months, that’s for sure.After returning from the Dominican Republic, I’ve been dealing with re-entry back into REAL life. …

I’m Not Any Different

I wish I could say I was different than the norm, but I’m not. While I realize most people try to fit in, I’ve spend a considerable amount of time trying to stand out. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not crazy. I don’t push the envelope too drastically. I mean I still buy random clothes from Target so I can’t get too upset when I run into someone …

Room For the Littlest Princess

Tammy Hiveley - March 19, 2015

We are slowly adding bits and pieces to our new house. The downside: my walls are still bare and echo-y. The upside to this snail pace: it’s allowing me to really ponder what I want for each room. My latest project has been the girls’ rooms. Here’s a sneak peak into my Littlest Princess’s bedroom {the other 2 rooms are still a work in progress… we are debating wall details… …
