Seasonal Favourites

Welcome! I’m Elsie!

My blog explores what it means to live deeply in the everyday aspects of homemaking. I’ve been pouring my heart into it for over a decade, and it reflects all the stages and changes I’ve been through–living as a newlywed in Michigan, moving to a tiny cabin in Alabama and having our first baby, then putting down roots in the suburbs and adding more kids to our family! Over the years I’ve written on natural living, decluttering, and building a home with the people you love. I hope you will be encouraged and inspired as you read these posts!
