It’s gonna be sad when my kids go to school. I won’t have them trailing along with me everywhere, all the time. Silver lining: I won’t be slowed down by their picking clovers, scratching itches, or my looking at what they can do. Wait, no. That’s the part I’ll miss most! My kidlets fuel the spontaneity. #kindergartensoon #growinglikeaweed #familylife #momandkids #metamorphicdress
This is what would see if you were a nosey house guest in 1907.
My little girl is 5 years old! It was a wonderful celebration at home with lots of friends! Piñata, cake, pizza and a bounce house. There will likely be an exact repeat of this in September for Woody. It was just too much fun! Thanks friends, for celebrating with us!
Inside I’m shrieking like a teenage girl at a Beatles concert. This amazing Norwegian low back Luna Chair designed by Odd Knutsen for IMG circa 1970 was only $20. MCM Furniture dealers charge $500-800 for these babies! Indigo leather and teak - does a more gorgeous paring exist?? It’s in perfect condition, so naturally my children are banned from using it. Go sit on your pilling ikea couch, sticky children!! #thriftstorefinds #thriftstorehaul #salvationarmyfinds #mcm #oddknutsen
This is military life. Saying goodbye to old friends and hello to new ones. We expedite our friendships and create family from friends. Life moves fast, and as military spouses, we rely on one another for support and guidance. The Ellis family is moving on from Arizona, here photographed is Captain Ellis’ Change of Command Ceremony. This is what change looks like; it’s an adventure!

I finished my reversible Metamorphic dress! It took me two days and I only made like three mistakes (progress!). It’s an avocado colored linen that reverses to a gauzy woven eggplant colored linen. Next time I’ll add bigger patch pockets, I’ll take better care on the rolled hems, and stay far away from gauzy textiles. I love the colors and how I’ve magically got two dresses in one! Thanks @sewliberated! #2018makenine
This kind of day. I’m trying to finish my metamorphic dress by Sew Liberated but it takes me forever to get projects done. I hoped to have it done on my birthday which was Saturday, but yknow, novice sewing problems. 🤷♀️
#TBT - baby wearing baby Woods. My Shibori ring sling by @lovesakurabloom fueled my interest in indigo dyeing and my house is now full of the stuff! Anyway, I wish I could sling Woody on my back to explore like the old days in Alaska, I think he’s too heavy and ninja-y to comply now. . . 📸: @jaxharmon
