Well Designed Hallway

I love living in our old farmhouse. Sometimes I find myself marveling at some of the little details that you don’t find in modern houses. Some are for practical reasons, like the wall cutout that goes up the stairs for heating. Others are just decorative, though, like the well-designed hallway that joins the kitchen to the dining room.

Year of Intentional Living

It’s already a week into the new year, and I hope you’ve had a quiet moment to plan out 2019.  Whether you have resolutions, goals, or just hopes and dreams, remember that “a dream without a plan is just a wish.”  I heard that recently and thought it was so true!  In order to make our goals achievable, we have to plan for them.  Why not make 2019 the year of intentional living? I’m going to make a list of all my goals for the year and then list steps…
