Hello sewing friends! I’m back today to share some more sewing makes and family photos, but instead of the ocean, this time we are focusing on the desert! There are so many amazing desert places to visit, and despite spending quite a bit of time in the Southwest, I feel like we’ve barely scratched…Read More
Hello again friends! Today I’m back with one of my favorite outfits of all time, because it’s all about my favorite place in the world: the ocean! We often get asked where our favorite place that we’ve been is, and anywhere with an ocean easily tops the list for me. I grew up in Southern…Read More

Sunset in the Palms…
One of my favorite parts about being in south Florida for the winter were the sunsets. We’ve seen desert sunsets, mountain sunsets, and ocean sunsets, but nothing beats a sunset when you’re on a small chain of islands, surrounded by nothing but water and views. It became a nightly tradition to walk out to the…Read More
