Blankets with a purpose: Sackcloth + Ashes

Stumbled upon this brilliant, beach/bundle, blanket, business…(Not sorry, I love my alliterations I just admire people like Bob Dalton who start businesses like this with a simple purpose, that carries out a great mission.  For every Sackcloth + Ashes blanket you buy, they give a second blanket to your local homeless shelter! These blankets have a heart for the homeless, and so do we.  Jeremy and I love what they are doing, and…

Scarlet & Gold #InspireMeMonday

I am so excited to be guest posting today for Scarlet and Gold’s #InspireMeMonday I had the honor of meeting Megan Small ey, the brilliance behind Scarlet and Gold, this past weekend!

Megan you…

Our 1st Christmas and a Happy New Year

We will forever remember the Christmas of 2014.  Our first married Christmas starting some family traditions of our own. We were not able to fly home to Oregon to be with our families for Christmas, but it was such a joy to spend Christmas as a new little family, just the two of us. We went to Lake Arrowhead which is just a few hours east of LA up in the…

Insecurities + Confidence

My fellow blogging friend Brooke Kupcho  (in my hair post a few weeks back) had the great, but challenging, idea of teaming up to create a post for our readers about insecurities.  She generated some real/hard questions, and myself and a few other  bloggers are sharing our answers over on her blog www.brookekupcho.com. Fun fact! Brooke and her husband are from the midwest, and the are co-founders of an amazingly beautiful magazine…

Pumpkin Mexican Pizza

One of my most request meals when I would come home from college was what my mom called Mexican Pizza.  You can make this delicious dish in so many different ways… but basically, it’s pizza made from cornbread, and stuffed/topped with Mexican goodness! Although being in LA has not caused me to miss Oregon’s relentless rain, I do miss the foods that it produces. Especially during harvest season.  Pumpkins, squash, pears, apples,…

Teaming up to talk about HAIR

From frizzy to silky locks and bedhead to viva la glam, this blog post will address all things hair.  I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my hair routine/products that I use, but I thought it would be more insightful an impact full to address these questions with a collaborative response. So I decided to reach out to a couple of my curly-haired blogging friendlies.  These women understand the…

Eva’s By Reclamation

Lauren Graebner. My college roommate, teammate, co-captain, co-creative, cooking bud, adventurer, and best friend. This woman has more creative juices flowing through her than she knows what to do with.  She won pretty much every award for her designs in the Oregon State fashion shows.  Lauren, and my other roommate, bridesmaid, and best friend – Thea – have a patent on one of their designs!   As I started dreaming about the floral,…

Wedding Q & A

What were you thinking when you woke up on your wedding day? It felt similar to waking up on race day, but 100 times more.  I was excited beyond measure but so at peace at the same time.  I went for a prayer walk alone on the morning of our wedding.  I walked down to the train bridge (where Jer proposed to me) and I took a video of my…

Little Flock Designs

Many of my wedding guests and blog readers have inquired about the signs that the groomsmen carried down the aisle during my wedding ceremony.  Well here is the answer! For the record, this was by far my favorite wedding idea….   In the beginning, when the wedding planning, preparing, and pondering had just begun, I was full of an “Auj Poj” of ideas. Look up the definition of the word “bricolage.” It perfectly…
