We Go Together

I am loving this first holiday season with our sweet baby Ezra. This weekend we were intentional about spending time together- less time at the cafe– and beginning new traditions that we’d like to incorporate for years to come.

When it comes to “baby’s first Christmas ornament” I went round and round with different ideas. Reed and I finally decided that we wanted to make Ezras 1st Christmas ornament together and there just so happens so be an amazing art studio just down the street from us. Reed is really creative when it comes to art…so this was a fun project to do together. He picked out the colors that we used for the ornament…and I can NOT wait to see how it looks after its fired and glazed. We get to pick it up later this week….

We also visited Santa at the Whitefish Lake Lodge! This place is gorgeous this time of year and we thought we would have a better experience there than waiting in line at the mall….and a great experience is exactly what we had! Ezra got to meet Cowboy Santa! He was skeptical at first, but quickly warmed up to that jolly man in the red suit!

Our weekend ended with lattes & chocolate…perfection!


I’d love to hear what traditions all you mommas have with your family for Christmas. Did you start something new this year? Feel free to share in the comment box below!

Little Brave Man // Baby Shower

Last month, my sweet-sweet friends here in Montana showered me the most AMAZING and ADORABLE baby shower! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I walked into my in-laws house, where the party took place. AMAZING and ADORABLE are the words that kept coming out of my mouth…..over and over.

Carrie and Jennie hosted the shower with the help from some very crafty elves…..and what little investigators they are! They came up with the theme “LITTLE BRAVE MAN” from a few of my Pinterest Boards! Love it! Im all about BOWS + ARROWS, TEEPEE’s, LITTLE INDIANS, TRIANGLES ect….these days! These girls captured this theme perfectly and left me so inspired.

I feel so loved by the ladies in my life. What a blessing they are to me…and my growing family. I’m still blown away by the richness of relationships that I have here in Montana….only being here less than 2 years! Words can’t describe my thankfulness for Gods provision.

Below are a few of my favorite images from my baby shower, but you can see the full gallery over on ON TO BABY! So excited to have this baby shower of mine featured today…..the girls did a fabulous job and I am so happy that their ideas, hard work and creativity are being recognized! Thank you so much, friends!

A House Warming Party

We had a few friends over [back in November] to cozy up our little house in the woods….with their presence and laughter over chili, corn bread, warm beverages and sweet treats. Such a fun evening. I truly enjoy small gatherings of people that I love. There’s nothing better.

I’ve posted a few images of our home here, but once I get our nursery set up….I’ll post an updated tour!

My friends here in Montana are so creative- there’s definitely not a lack of inspiration out here. So thankful! When I mentioned wanting to throw a House Warming Party, my friend Carrie of Cue The Confettiimmediately jumped on board to help plan the festivities! Her love for details runs deep and we had such a fun time dreaming up ideas for this.

The invitations were my most favorite element! We got crazy creative with the whole “moving” theme. We used small cardboard boxes, electric blue tape and sharpie markers to create “moving boxes” in which we placed the invitations into. We carried the “moving tape” element into the paper goods/decor.

My friend Ashley of Thorn + Sparrow illustrated the invitations for us, which I absolutely adore! She just opened up an etsy shop so be sure and check out her beautiful designs that she will be unveiling in the next few weeks!

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

Let Freedom Ring


I am so excited to share my latest collaboration with you. My friend Vanessa Warren and I decided to put our creative minds together and this is what came from it. Seriously, right? I think we surprised ourselves! This was such an amazing experience….another reason why I am a huge advocate of COLLABORATING! There’s just something about two or more minds coming together for one common purpose. I love how much bigger our DREAMS and VISIONS can get from sharing ideas with other creatives.

Vanessa is fabulous designer and stylist. You can keep up with her on Facebook and Twitter….she’s all over it!

There’s so much to be thankful for this weekend. Our freedom and independence is priceless. Enjoy your time with family & friends….a few of life’s beautiful treasures. Have FUN. Be SAFE.
