DIY wall tree for our First Christmas! 

A little bamboo, some left over lights, homemade ornaments, lots of mini instax and you’ve got a memorable baby’s first Christmas!   At least I won’t ever forget it.  It’s our first Christmas with Baby Kai and I cannot emphasize how big this is for us, how grateful & blessed we are for all the love…

Well-Dressed Distress

My brother’s wedding is this week and that means last minute touch-ups and finalizing are in order. My soon-to-be sister-in-law had a wonderful idea to use a bird cage.

House Dressing
