Oh My Goodness

This is ridiculous, I want to be there right now! Not only is it a hammock bed, but it is by some sort of water...what more do you need?! Someday I will aspire to have one of these, someday.

Definitely Not a Bad Day

Yesterday my dear friend Elizabeth and I tried our hand at making fresh mozzarella using a cheese making kit I received for christmas (I's August). It was quite a fun process, and although our results weren't exactly what we had hoped, we did get some boccocini out of it. We added garlic, chives, rosemary, basil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to the jars with the cheese and covered them in olive out. They look so beautiful! Can't wait to try it again.

Pretty Neat

A while back, I found this wooden ring somewhere on the internet and instantly thought that my dad (a very skilled carpenter) could totally make one. So the other day, we combined forces and this ring was the outcome. I am so very excited to add this to the many amazing and beautiful things that my dad has made for me! 


I've always had a thing for hanging planters, but this is just fantastic! It looks like it would be pretty easy to make! How cool would it be with like 2 or 3 openings for plants? Love it.

New Place

Well, I think I've found my dream home. It's a little small, but it has a lot of natural lighting. We visited a ghost town in the hills of Montana and this was one of the few in-tact homes. It was so fun to imagine what it would have been like to live in this house 100 years ago.

DIY Nail Art

I've always loved nail polish, devoting far too much time to making just perfect (only to trash them the next day at work). This awesome post about doing your own nail is awesome! And it looks way easy. Check it out!

Happy Place

This week the fam and I are in Montana visiting my brother and enjoying lazy days by the lake. I'm loving the crisp mountain air, bike rides all over town and delicious beer :) So lovely!
