March Special

March has always been special, mostly because it’s my birthday month and I am a total present & cake HOG!

© AMANDA OCHOCKI + chalklegs little chalklegsBut this year is little different for me, I’m turning 40 ..dang at one time that seemed so old! I’ve been blissfully in love with the boy I met when I was just a girl and we’ve been together longer than we’ve been apart (aww I love you!) We created an unbelievable daughter who is our best parts gathered into one, who bravely left the familiar comfort of the Midwestern landscape, headed East to find what completes her and is becoming more and more absolutely incredible in every way (and I am handling it so much better with each passing day ..happily with much less woe!) I am in such a fantastic place and want to be even more grand from here out ♥

In other fantastic Marchy things, I’m excited to announce that I’m featured in the March volume of Knitsy Magazine (Knitsy issue18). I always thought my self-descriptive of “I live in a tiny little house, in a tiny little town, my life is calm and quiet ..I am perfectly content being a bore.” was really pretty accurate and that no one would ever be interested in me or my silly junk ..well, thank you so much guys xoxo

I think I love you!

Quite possibly the most kaleidoscopically beautiful and awful tasting watermelon we’ve ever had ..aww bye bye summer!

While it’s no secret Jason and I are by no means model groundskeepers, in fact we prefer to let everything be a bit more natural, a bit overgrown, a bit purposefully tousled. It’s that kind of unkempt magic we find irresistible apologies chemicals ..just a cozy love filled home all wrapped up in dreamy charm. I hope you are getting thoroughly lost in living and NOT in yardwork!
