Happy Half Birthday to Ty!

bekah Parenting Leave a Comment

So cliche’ to say ‘where has the time gone?’ but in 6 months you have melted my heart. I love you, my lil’ hedgehog. I love that you smile with your eyes, and when being playful, your lil’ side smirk squishes your lips off-center, and at other times, when beyond happy, your mouth opens to an oversized O and remains …

Pretty Snobby!

I had a Pretty Woman moment today… no, I didn’t sing Prince in the tub, or attend a Polo match and stomp on the divots {although I did do that recently and it’s quite fabulous}. Bryan did not save me from a life of prostitution. But, Julia, I feel ya! Today I was you in the Rodeo store. Okay, it …

NOTHING makes me happier than hanging out with my hubby, my boys, fabulous friends, decorating, planning events or eating dessert. The ideal day would encompass all! So in honor of all the dessert-eating I do, I’m giving a lil’ shout-out love to my favorite dessert spots… You can’t go wrong at Claim Jumper’s…. ever! Our first year of marriage, we …

Oh Sophie!

I woke up to a whack across the face from a giraffe! Yep, that silly Sophie giraffe that apparently all the stars have, the one that Ty received as a gift, and I mistook for a dog toy, and somehow Bruiser got the same memo and always managed to find Sophie and run around the house with the poor animal …

Come on in…

One of the most intimate decisions I make is to invite people into our home. Our home is where we love one another well (and sometimes not-so-well), raise our boys, have the deepest heart-conversations, and the hardest fights. Home is where we can be ourselves at the core. I love entertaining and having people over. I love helping Bryan cook …

Every once in a while I go into my bedroom upstairs and take alil spritz of perfume. My perfumes sit atop a sterling silver vintage plate that I found at a darling antique store inAtascadero, which I love for all my fabulous finds, but mostly the stores name, The Cottage. I have about 3 or 4 fragrances which are my …

Ode to Intentionality

I’m giddy! Beyond! Like I’m 5 and discovering Disneyland for the first time! My dear friend Annette came up yesterday to play, which really means we sat on the couch cupping warm drinks and talking in fast-forward, while our boys thoroughly enjoyed uprooting my freesia bulbs and covering themselves in black soil… and then the creativity began! Annette has an …

Blue

I’ve been blue. Not the fun, aqua-ish blue on my Anthropologie bedding. But deep in my gut blue. Lonely. And I’m not sure why. Probably because God is sifting through my heart and bringing parts of it to my attention. And it’s ugly. And I want to turn my head and ignore it. But it won’t go away. So I’m …

Kids say the darnest things!

I am constantly entertained by my 2 year old, Tanner, also known as “T”- aren’t we efficient? 🙂 Not only is he a compulsive door closer, but he now loves to do laundry, thanks to my mom! Yep, he takes all his dirty clothes out of the hamper, carries them downstairs and informs me that it is “time to do …
