Hello friends! Steve and I have been cooking a bit–nothing fancy–just yummy meals to try to bring our little family together. Yesterday morning we made bacon, eggs, sweet rolls and French press coffee. He makes a mean egg and perfect bacon. I set the table with chargers and runners and linen napkins and it makes it feel more official somehow. Bri McCoy’s book arrived at the perfect time and I can’t wait to read it. Today is the LAST day to preorder the book and get some extra goodies! Click here for more info.

How about some hellos for a new week? ❤️ 

Hello setting the table with pretty things–like a salt cellar, pepper grinder and salad tongs.

Hello using chargers and table runners and linen napkins. The texture makes my heart so happy. And a happy heart is a good thing. That gorgeous macrame runner is from this handmade shop.


Hello savoring the last couple bites of breakfast. Yum.

Hello trying to hydrate in the midst of this INSANE heat wave we’re having.

Hello thinking about Houston and praying for people who are beginning to put their lives back together.

Hello cleaning out closets and feeling embarrassed by the amount of stuff we accumulate.

Hello third week of high school. David is loving it. We are trying to encourage more independence for him. It’s hard for me–to be honest, I baby him too much. But I know it’s so important.

Hello second week of 8th grade. Matthias is loving it too. We are trying to encourage more responsibility for him. It’s hard for me–sometimes it’s easier to do it myself. But I know it’s so important.

Hello SALE in the shop–have you had your eye on something?

Hello feeling grateful for a day off.

Hello to you. It’s a brand new week with beauty to be found. What are you saying hello to this week?
