My friend’s cabin in Minnesota is just a little slice of heaven.  Every summer we pack up the car, put on an epic playlist & escape the insane Oklahoma heat.  11 hours later (and a quick trip to Trader Joe’s), we’re sitting bayside at the most awesome lake cabin on the face of the earth. […]

I met Frank back in high school…which, let’s be honest, was a looooong time ago.  He is a happy-go-lucky kind of guy with an off beat sense of humor and the biggest heart of anyone I know.  He’s also one of the most tech savvy guys I know & can whip up an AutoCAD design […]

When I was but a young little Meredith, one of the most magical places for me was my Grand Bob’s house.  Once a week, I would get to spend the day with him and his housekeeper, Nina, who was a beloved family friend.  Both of them are two my favorite people in the whole wide […]

springtime

Ah, Springtime.  It is my most favoritest season of all.  The weather is getting warmer but it is yet to be the oven that Oklahoma loves to be in the summer.  There are great thunderstorms (just beware of the tornados!) that are awesome to sit on the porch and watch.  Best of all though….the flowers finally […]
