Slow down to see the lovely things in everyday life & seize every opportunity to make today lovely.

Hello, lovely!

I'm Abby. I'm a wife and mama to two little girls. My hands and heart are full, but I make time for discovering lovely things in everyday life and endeavor to make everyday life a little more lovely.

I invite you to join me in the journey of living and loving life to the fullest through a slow, minimal lifestyle with an emphasis on wellness and community. 



the slow journey to finding home

While expecting my second little one, my husband pitched the idea of selling our (forever) home in Raleigh, North Carolina to RV cross-country and resettle in a place we've never been.


He wanted to head west.

Nesting instincts at an all-time high. I said, in the nicest way possible, "Are you crazy?"

I felt much like Laura Ingalls of Little House on the Prairie. I paraphrase, "It's so comfortable here. Must we go?"

And then I said yes.

I said yes again to this man with the boyish grin (the one I can't resist).

Yes to new adventures, now with kiddos in tow. Yes! 

Now having sold our house and paired down our belongings, we're soon to set out on an adventure in our modern day version of a horse and buggy, to explore the west and find home.

I'm expecting the unexpected, and all the while, embracing the opportunity to explore a more minimal and slow approach to life and motherhood. I do hope you'll join the journey.
