Thanksgiving 2016

by Jesse on November 25, 2016

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite holidays. A few years ago we opted to start staying home instead of running all over all day. It’s been such a wonderful change of pace and we’ve started a few traditions that we look forward to each year.

Starting with pie for breakfast! I would say the kids look forward to it, but I think I look forward to it just as much!

Next is getting to surprise the kids with a new ornament on their dessert plate right before dinner is served.

After we ate this year we crafted. Painting some unfinished nutcrackers and making salt dough ornaments. You may have seen a bit of this on my Instagram Story.

Later that afternoon we made a round around the park and grabbed a photo of us all via self timer and had a fight with the fallen leaves. I’m soaking up these simple yet special times.

“Amen” A New Print

by Jesse on October 23, 2016

Having words of wisdom and/or encouragement around the house is something important to me. Not only does it inspire me to be my best, I am hoping to influence my children as well. With more than just the spoken word, but the unspoken message in the frame.

Here is our latest print for the dining room.

“Bless the food before us,

the family beside us,

and the love between us.

Amen”

Dancing Mini

by Jesse on October 17, 2016

Hi friends,

This past weekend we kicked off another dance season. This year doing slightly more than the last, including adding a solo. One of the first events we attend is NUVO dance convention, where Blair takes classes from some of the top professionals in the dance industry. Then in the evening she gets to compete her solo in her age group. This is the first time for her to have a solo and to perform it in a competitive environment. We were excited for her to place with a High Gold status and win 3rd overall in her age group! It was certainly a confidence booster for her and a great way to start off the year!

Playing Photographer

by Jesse on October 9, 2016

I’m not a photographer. But I like to pretend every now and then. So when my best gal pal of more than 10 years asked me to take family photos for her I couldn’t resist. They are the best!

There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for this girl and her sweet family!

I have always had a love for design, be it interiors or graphic design. It’s all the same to me. I think my love of paper and pens and the way things were artfully arranged in magazines and things helped to develop of a love graphic design. So I’m always tickled to get to do […]

So Long Summer…

September 5, 2016
twins-summer16

Even though this summer has been particularly hot, I’m sad to see it go. Nothing makes me happier than weekends hiking. Windows down with the warm breeze blowing through the car, warming not only our skin, but our hearts. Melting ice cream, sticky and dripping down our hands. Until next year summer. < Pokemon > […]

The Twins are 10!

blair-10-2

Doesn’t seem possible that these two are already 10 years old. Blair loves everything dance related and still harbors a love of all music. Is crazy about her Daddy, but loves her mommy time. She has a healthy coffee addiction and fiercely loves her brothers. Jude is as ornery as the day is long. Has […]

A Study in Contrast

July 20, 2016

I think one of my very favorite things might be a hefty dose of contrast. Here you have partially black walls paired with a white table and warm wood! Old pieces mixed with new. Worn with sleek. Contrast at it’s finest and I love every inch of it. via
