at home with Desenio

at home with Desenio

Since moving into our little house 6 months ago, this wall in the living room has been in limbo. We've changed it up so much and just couldn't decide what to do with it. So when I stumbled upon Desenio, I knew exactly what we should do. I've always loved photo ledges, and this ended up turning out just like I hoped. We originally planned to do two shelves, but decided that it would be too much for the wall and stuck with one shelf displaying our favorite artwork. We got a few other pieces from Desenio that we'll be hanging around the house, including Ever's room, but I haven't gotten them framed yet, and these were the winners for this wall.

Utah in October | a vacation

Utah in October | a vacation

Utahhhhhhhh. How many blogs can I write about Utah? We usually visit my family in southern Utah, but this time we did a little family vacation in Park City area for the weekend, then spent another 3 days with our friend in SLC. I love northern Utah, and was not so secretly hoping Jesse would fall as in love with it as I am and beg me to move there. But, yeah, that didn't happen... 

As always, we took millions of pictures. I don't have the energy to write down every little thing we did, ate, and saw, so here's just a big old photo dump.

ba-ba-barbara, santa barbara

So we were planning to go to Santa Barbara to celebrate Jesse's mom's birthday. It's about 2.5 hours from us, so we thought we could leave early and get there to explore for the whole day. Well, being the procrastinators we are, we didn't get there till 5:30pm... So, we got to explore a little but I was super bummed we didn't get to do more. So we'll definitely be going back. Ever was in the worst mood, and screamed her head off anytime we said "picture" or brought the camera out. But I might too if someone was trying to force me to hold still when my gums hurt like crazy and all I want to do is run wild and free like my older cousins.
