life & family


Follow me on Instagram to see these in real time. Come back here every Sunday for all the details.

piano practice keyboard

Since quitting jobs this month and prioritizing my life for fulfillment and meaning, I’ve had more time to practice my piano lessons and am now learning to play Bette Midler songs, which are a fun jump from Christmas songs. I love it. I can’t wait to just be able to sit down and actually play a song and have it sound like a real song.

lake at night

Just a dreamy photo of the lake at night while on a walk with the husband Friday evening.

french bulldog

My sweet little LeRoy… paces, stumbles, falls over, stares at the carpet, and gets stuck in small corners while he’s awake now. It’s sad, but I still love him up, I just have to whisper sweet nothings into his ear and he gives me little kisses.

hallway art bench

The hallway space between the living room and my office… I found this tufted linen and brass bench at Target of all places! Since taking this photo I’ve actually added a starburst mirror on the blank wall next to the William Wiley print {which you can see also in our old kitchen}.

black and metallic nails nike plus fuelband

Last week’s black and rose gold deco nails inspired by my Nike+ Fuelband, which I LOVE! {click the link for more details}

camo jacket

chalkboard wall

Our friends Chad and Alison visited last weekend… this is Al leaving her mark on the chalkboard wall in the stairwell.


I know I’ve been complaining a lot about not getting a fun Winter snow, but honestly, the West is facing drought and if we don’t get some water soon, it could result many fires in the coming months… So East coast, send us some of your water, would ya? 🙂

Happy Weekend Lovecats!

* Hope you’re having a lovely one.
