I'm a Michigan girl and was raised on our big beautiful lake. I live with my husband Aaron in a small beachy town (that feels "up north" but technically isn't)... My favorite times are spent on the water, with my nose in an old book, laughing with my sisters, or celebrating holidays with friends and my big family. I love last-minute road trips that end at the ocean, and old-person things (sewing, gardening, thrifting, tea, old movies, etc ;) I'm a part-time florist. My favorite color is blue. I want a dog and lots of babies someday, and to be like my mom.
I'm inspired by the earth around me. The beautifully organized chaos of nature; all the perfect rhythms woven into the messiness of life. I'm inspired by the little moments that make up my story, and all of our stories. The feeling of the sun and the sound of waves. A warm rain and the smell of dirt. Slow mornings, good coffee, collecting my favorite flowers at the market. The wallpaper at my grandma's house. Long talks with a dear friend, sharing our hearts.
I believe in the goodness in every person, and that relationships are one of life's most precious gifts. I believe in the beauty and art of slowing down, and not being afraid of the quiet things. In taking the time to write a note on pretty paper to tell someone what they mean to you, and why they are wonderful. In being thankful and letting someone know. In writing your thoughts, because they matter.
Welcome to my little shop! Thanks for stopping by.
