Holiday & New Year Greetings

When I saw this Holiday card design from Tiny Prints, I knew right away that I wanted to use it. The focal word couldn’t have been more perfect for what I want to call into 2018. After such a year of ups and downs, I want to cultivate a sense of PEACE in my heart and home.


PEACE… when I have a million and one things on my to-do list and ideas swirling around in my head BUT I’m too tired at the end of the day to do anything about it! This sometimes draining season of busy little ones will pass quickly. And, then I’ll miss it. Stay present, mama!

PEACE… when James and I are short with each other at the end of a long day. I know that he loves me. 

PEACE… when I know I’ve fallen short of my own expectations. Perfection isn’t the goal. I’m doing my best and that’s good enough.

PEACE… in the joyful moments and messes of daily life with littles. I’m so grateful for this time and that they need me right now. And, their smiles? Pure magic for the soul.

PEACE… when sleepless nights have become the norm and I’ve just warmed my coffee up for the 37th time. What I’m doing MATTERS. Being present for them is the greatest gift.

PEACE… when I’m building my business or working on a creative project. I’ve got this!

Wishing you PEACE, joy, health, and happiness in 2018! Happy New Year!

One Decoration that I’m Keeping Up…

It’s the end of January and I wanted to share one Christmas decoration that I couldn’t bare to take down right away: my 2013 Holiday Card Display. Christmas Card Display

I LOVE love love receiving these greetings in the mail.  Normally, I would have hung them on a decorative frame in the hallway leading to the kitchen.  With our entire first floor in disarray due to our kitchen renovation, I had to find a new spot.  Sick of leaving them in a pile, I randomly started pinning greetings to our bannister garland.

Christmas Cards 2013

Turns out, the entryway stairs are a great spot for showcasing notes from friends and family!  I will definitely be recreating this display next year!

These pins are also full of great ideas: HERE, HERE, & HERE.  I especially love the idea of hanging cards on a blank wall and arranging them in a fun shape.  How about you?
