Modern Minimal Christmas Tree

Our tree is up!  Every year I like to put it up before Thanksgiving since that gives me more time to enjoy this favorite tradition without mourning that our time together was too short once I’m putting everything away come the new year.  Per usual tradition as well, I go with a theme for our tree and this year I’m feeling white, silver, and red.  Going back to classics but it still feels fresh!  Initially I had different plans but quickly changed them when I found these gorgeous ornaments, which are all from Michaels (including the tree!) who I’m partnering with for the Dream Tree Challenge to share how I put together our modern, minimal tree.  Read More

DIY Patterned Pumpkins

I had no plans to make these pumpkins until I discovered very late that mini pie pumpkins exist and the next minute they came home with me.  Now if only they came in white!  I support keeping pumpkins the way they are, but opted instead to paint them in some favorite designs that would make them even more adorable.  It’s as simple as doodling and I’ll show you how I did it.   Read More

Friday Finds

Is it normal that I still don’t feel ready to come back to real life after our wedding and honeymoon??  It’s already been a couple weeks and I thought I’d be over it by now haha.  Some things that are probably contributing to the slump is that O has been out for town for work since we got back and I’ve hardly spent time with my new husband, and I’m dying to see our wedding photos/video but have to stay patient for a while.  Been struggling to get back on my rhythm, though still I’m happier than ever, really.  Read More
