2014 Instagram Favorites (Part 1: Life in Minnesota)

Many of you know our family moved from Minnesota to North Carolina this summer. It was a big move for our family, a good move. Life changing for all of us. In Minnesota my spare time was spent at estate and thrift stores, finding pieces for my vintage shop. Much has changed in the past several months and it feels only fitting to reflect back on where we were earlier this year though a few favorite photos. 

  We lived down the street from a beautiful lake and large Victorians. Though I never adjusted fully to the cold winters, snow on a sunny day is glorious.

After a lot of hustle and paint and mopping and sweeping and more sweeping. Our house went under contract in less than a week. A glimpse of grace!
