Everything In It’s Place

Everything In It’s Place I have a confession to make–I’m a neat freak and get totally stressed out by clutter.  It seems like I’m constantly going through “stuff” to see if I can get rid of anything else.  I admit I have a problem.  When my kids were young, I used to go through their rooms while they were at school to get rid of things I thought were trash.  They eventually caught onto this and would go through the trash when they got home.  As bad as that is,…

Home Is Not A Building

Home Is Not A Building I recently figured out that I’ve lived in 16 homes in my life, averaging a move every 2.6 years.  That’s a lot of moving and a lot of homes!  I’m sure you’re wondering why I even figured that out, but I was curious.  Thinking back, I can’t really remember any of them not feeling like home.  That sounds kind of odd because you would think it would take a lot of time for someplace to feel like home.  Maybe it’s because I’ve moved around so…

Vintage Farmhouse I love most things vintage,…

Eerie Fall Mountains

“And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.”–Unknown Eerie Fall Mountains Andy and I have been spending a lot of time in the mountains lately getting firewood.  At the end of Summer and beginning of Autumn, we go up to the Park City area and scout for wood.  One of my favorite parts of Autumn is the eerie Fall mountains when the fog starts creeping in and the clouds are low-lying.  It’s really spooky to look at, and even scarier to be in it…
