Always On with Havertys

July 15, 2014

  I’ve mentioned before the ever-present issues that Nate and I have had when it comes to decorating our home. The fact that we didn’t even think to talk colors or patterns or assess needs when we registered for our wedding gifts, the fact that we felt all the things had to be in place […]

Summer Market Soup + Garlicky Greek Yogurt

July 14, 2014

This past weekend was basically your quintessential summer weekend.

I don’t know about you guys, but I was one of the first people in line to buy the Naptime Diaries Abide Journal when it was released because summer is a time of (as Jessi says) deep, deep abiding for me. It’s also the time of year when sponsored content requests and brand partnerships start […]

Glamourous Camping = Glamping

July 7, 2014

One thing my dad always told us was that when he married my mom he made a promise to her father that he would show her as much of the world as possible. When my sister and I came along that promise then extended to us, and I have to say that he – both […]

Grilled Herbed Goat Cheese, Fresh Peach + Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich

July 4, 2014

  I don’t talk about it on here a lot, but my husband is an incredible cook. Seriously. I have kind of taken over our kitchen because of my job, but the days that Nate takes over are kind of amazing. When we first started dating we would cook together constantly, and while the kitchen […]
