Anna James is here! There are so many things to say about her birth, her sweet little self, and the adjustment of having a third baby... I could probably write ten blog posts on just those things. But instead, I wanted to share her nursery! Like always, I used a combination of new and old. … Continue reading Modern Lavender Nursery
Hey, yall! I hope your summers are going well.

I could go on and on with the sappy … Continue reading Natalie Emolyn.
Someone recently said "I feel like I'm waiting for something that isn't going to happen." Sheesh. You and me both, sister.

In all of my free time, I managed to overestimate my Walmart grocery pick-up and … Continue reading Muffins, Outfits, and The Wait.
