Simple Seasonal Decorating


For me, holiday decorating has always been more about the overall feeling a space can invoke than loading our small apartment with decorative accents.

This post has been a long time coming! I have done versions of it here and here, but I wanted to sit down to write how I am changing my outlook on spending and my relationship with stuff. Within the last six months I have implemented a lot of changes in my life in order […]

Ah, Yountville! This little town nestled in the heart of the Napa Valley is a must see if you are visiting the area.

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays! It is really hard to believe we are already in full prep mode, which is why I am not yet in a Christmas state of mind. I really do like to enjoy each holiday and season as they are happening or they kind of seem overshadowed […]
