The sad state of my office.

Today I am sharing one side of my office, the wall used to be the spot where our bird lived, with her cage, her ladders and toys, and of course, her happy little self. When she passed away suddenly in June, my heart broke. Removing her things was hard, but had to be done, and of course I needed to fill the space with something so it wouldn’t just sit empty. Here’s the result.


I grabbed a few things from other spots in the house and basically plopped them against the wall and haven’t touched it since. You see, coming up with a plan for that space wasn’t something I was supposed to think about yet (at least for ten years or more). And in all honesty it was a space that I still hadn’t given much thought to until I went to a fun blogger breakfast at IKEA.

Seeing some amazing office and craft spaces at was just what my mind needed to get past the sad part and start seeing possibilities for my office again. I have a plan, and am just working towards making it a reality. But I wanted to share the photo now, because maybe you feel blogger houses are always magazine ready. They aren’t. We are just really good at taking photos that look like they are.

Strawberry Fudge

Fall is just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean we can’t hold onto summer a little bit longer. This strawberry fudge is incredibly easy to make, and is totally decadent.


You will need:

  • 1 Tbs butter
  • 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package milk chocolate chips
  • 1 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 tsp of LorAnn strawberry oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Prepare a 9 inch square pan by greasing it with butter. In a large microwave safe bowl melt the chocolate chips and butter. Start at one minute, then check and stir in 30 second intervals until it’s completely melted. Stir condensed milk, vanilla, and strawberry oil into the chocolate. Pour into the pan.

Refrigerate until the fudge is firm. Remove from the pan, and cut into inch squares. Store it in the refrigerator (if you have any leftover to store, this is pretty delicious)!

Disclosure: I received free oils from LorAnn to try in recipes in exchange for posting about it.

Welcome fall, so nice to see you again.

Fall has officially arrived. Today I helped welcome fall in the best way I could think of. A nice fall hike in one of my favorite places.

fall hike

I must admit, it felt much more like summer today than fall. I was surprised when I didn’t see much change in color up the canyon, as I have been seeing a lot of reds on the mountainside.

Do you do anything to welcome new seasons?
