Meet my WildCard, he is our full of life 19year old. He is one of those kids who loves whole heartedly, is passionate about what he finds focus in (family, Jesus, leading worship, music, and work) and is probably one of the funniest people I know. See that bear tattoo- that’s me- his momma bear- he picked this one because he felt she had loving eyes but a fierce face. Anyone who knows me - knows my boys are my life, and the one thing that you should do no harm to or you will meet the fierce side haha. This kid has always been my wildcard- and I wouldn’t have it any other way ❤️ #homemade#smother#myboy#boymom#family#home#sons#cozyhome#cottagestyle#saltlightcottagestyle
Homebody feels... ugh winter 🥶 you make me want to stay home!!
Well I can’t totally blame it on Winter!
1st I work from home. And we have an office in property for my husbands business that I help run = not much life outside of home!
2nd we live in the middle of nowhere = not much life outside of home!
3rd liking all the comforts of home = not much life outside of home!
So yup, that makes me an official homebody!!
It’s Friday night and you guessed at home🤣 oh the days when we were young and would go out on the town🤣🤣🤣!! Yeah our lil’ country town! But for real I’m happy to stay home these days and occasional dinners, drinks with friends and of course vaca’s.
If your a home body raise your hand 🙋🏻♀️?
And if you are you can get this cozy sweatshirt to wear while your being your homebody bad self!!, in the shop! Tap the photo to shop!
While thrifting in Antigonish, Nova Scotia my son-in-law Adam directed me to this vintage electric copper light. I fell in love with the detail and thought it would be lovely hung in the pantry. So I cut the wires and polished the copper with a lemon to refresh the patina. Being we don’t have a source of electricity in the pantry I finagled a string of twinkle lights to the innards and hung the light with a 1/2” jute twine 16” from a command hook attached to the ceiling. I suck a before photos. 🤪 Sorry, it was really grimy before I attacked it with the 🍋. Now it’s all shiny😁

Where we want to be during this weekend’s snowstorm. ⛄️🛏
Finished A Discovery of Witches this afternoon! I was supposed to go into work today but felt like my anxiety was really acting up and I needed a day to rest at home, so that’s what I did. Eventually picked this book up and flew through the last 150 pages.
The beginning hooked me immediately from the start, as I didn’t know much about what the book would be about. It is a little long in my opinion and one part in the middle felt a little slow, but honestly I loved the writing and it was very atmospheric so I still loved it. It definitely went directions I wasn’t anticipating, which I love when that happens in books, so I’m excited to pick up the next book!

Normal Saturday morning, sun streaming in through the blinds mum's hands combing my tangled hair.
Eyes open I say my morning salaam and biker back in forth with mum when dad enters and as usual heads for the chair with the big fluffy pillow by the window where he sees and judges the neighbors😂😂 #sorrynotsorry. Dad: "what's for breakfast", I just mumble triggering mum to tickle my 22yr old hippopotamus ass leaving my bed in mess.
Im up & in my happy place and my family's UMPTEENTH living room, this is where you'll find them & it drives me nuts because they leave pillows deflated and the throws books in wrong positions... My first year in Dunedin mum spent a lot of time here, dad said she'd go sleep in my room (seriously getting real teary eye atm!) everywhere they look they see a piece of me! that's because I've decorated and customized the SHIEET out of everything haha. but its the little trinkets like HP, LOTR, or medicine or the billion flowers in my room... (dad thinks im a flower addict) but he forgets that he is the one behind my obsession, he loved to garden, we'd spend Sundays going and buy roses and then coming home and planting them. Mum forgets that it's her who taught me that a room and house should always be tidy and presentable.... how your bed should always be made and how you can never have too many pillows.
Today i realised its the people that make the home even when im not here or maybe its because my closet is overflowing but for them im here because of this room <3 A proud, emotional and humbling thing to have relealised as lately all my brain does is work, study, and stress.
Anyway for anyone who actually read this... the hippopotamus says bye 😂😘💖
BTW im no writer just wrote everything I felt <3

Did a little refresh of a few spaces after the Christmas clutter was cleared out! Here’s a peek at our family room/living space. I always have touches of blush around the house, but I especially love soft pink accents leading up to Valentine’s Day. I’m slightly obsessed with the beautiful throw from @thecrossdecor it’s the perfect muted color! (Swipe to see a closer view) Are you an all out kinda Valentine or more reserved? If you’re starting to think about VDay I’ve put some pretty shoppable decor up on the blog(link in profile) 💕 📷:@brandingbytraceyjazmin

“Shame hates it when we reach out and tell our story. It hates having words wrapped around it—it can’t survive being shared. Shame loves secrecy. When we bury our story, the shame metastasizes.” – Brené Brown
Обожаю этого монстра!!❤️
Говорят, именно дети выбирают родителей, в какой семье появится, тема достаточно философская и местами спорная, но что-то в этом есть, а вот что животные выбирают хозяев/людей - это 100%
Так произошло и у меня)
Я хотела максимально спокойного и ленивого котёнка, боязливого и няшного, когда приехали выбирать котят, то конечно глаза разбежались🙈
Я присела и решила понаблюдать, все манюни держались в стороне и только эта девчонка сразу запрыгнула на колени, как к к себе домой, без лишней скромности и любезностей😅
Конечно я растаяла и поняла, что это моё! Выбор сделала она и не зря)
Мы с ней очень похожи, даже слишком!
Именно поэтому стычек и воспитательных процессов было немерено, а ещё разодранные до крови руки и ноги, обиды, примирения, в общем настоящая любовь, та которая «от любви до ненависти»😂
Этот комок шерсти без зазрения совести может напасть из-за угла (любит она гоняться за ногами, правда я сама научила🤪) и в тоже время каждую ночь приходит, залазит под одеяло, тулится, мурчит и ходит хвостиком из комнаты в комнату❤️
Животные учат, многому!
Моя Плюшка - часто зеркалит моё поведение и теперь-то я точно знаю, что я ещё та Зараза😅
Но люблю её, прям не могу, это же настоящий леняющий комок счастья😍
