Our New Neighbor

Plaid scarf, pompom beanie and layers of sweaters!

Our new neighbor, Bob, has the best photography backdrop. It’s old. It’s real. It’s alive with business. It’s down right cool. Now Bob and his sons might think we are complete nutso but we don’t care. Because when you can open up your side door, step into another world and snaps some amazing pics… you just have to take advantage of it, right? Right? So, Bob, …

Cheers to this Crazy Life

Batwing sweater, booties & textured tights

Life is catching up with me and I’m feelin it.  Running non-stop lately is taking it’s toll. I’m exhausted. Last week, a few school parents and I took a group of forty 5th graders to the Eagle Bluff Environmental Center for three days of outdoor education.  While it was well worth the months of planning and organization, I am happy the trip went off without a hitch and it’s …

What I Wore To Sparkle

Tammy Hiveley - October 8, 2014
Cutest black jumpsuit EVER!

Last weekend I attended a Christian Women’s Conference called Sparkle.  Well that is, after we so gracefully endured a flat tire, lost keys and a ripped top… we finally made it! Sparkle was full of inspiring and thought provoking sessions. Keeping my mind and spirit alive, which is always extremely emotional for me. But I do love emotions. I actually enjoy crying, laughing, yelling, etc. Life would …

Cozy Tee

Cate Mezyk - September 30, 2014

I have such a hard time dressing for this season. Our weather here is chilly in the morning, as hot as 80 midday, and cools back down in the evening. When you’re out and about all day, (or busy opening a retail shop!!!) there’s no time to change. My solution is the t-shirt dress and some layers. I can start the day with some tights, …

Hello, September!

Cate Mezyk - September 2, 2014

How is it that every year this month sneaks up on me? It’s funny how I both dread this month and yet yearn for it. The kids have to head back to school, and our summer fun comes to an end. But the weather is amazing, the skies are usually bright and sunny, and schedules – oh, how they are a good thing for us. …

Downtown Doors and Me

Work is fun when you get to stroll around a downtown that looks like this one! Prior Lake is as it suggests ~ a lake town. A quaint, lovely, little lake town. Great shops of all kind tucked away into historical buildings giving each store instant character and class.  As I walk mainstreet, I realize how lucky I am to be living in a small …

Flooded With Emotions

Tammy Hiveley - July 9, 2014
Bold stripes with white

My life has been flooded.  Literally.  With both water and emotions. Last week we were busily sandbagging instead of packing up our old house.  Then after we handed over the house keys to the new owners, we moved into my parents’ house on the lake {waiting for our new construction to be constructed}. Normally, I’d be ecstatic to live on the lake for the summer.  Lounging carelessly in …
