5 YEARS

*All photography by Amanda and team at Front Room Photography. I wanted to respect peoples privacy, which is why I didn’t include bridal party, group portraits, and reception portraits.   It’s honestly wild to think we’ve been married for 5 years. A lot has happened since that day. It has been an incredible adventure to have this…

Stretched: Postpartum Depression and Anxiety

Motherhood stretches you in ways you cannot imagine. I don’t just mean in the physical sense, that’s obvious. But in every way possible emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. And sometimes, when stretched too thin, you crack. The amount of love your heart grows to know and the joy this new chapter brings cannot prepare you for…

#HausofMeier: Baby Girls Nursery

This post has been a long time coming. I left off here 9 months pregnant and ready to pop. Well, Siena Noelle finally made her debut (5 days late) and our lives have never been the same since. Motherhood has been the most rewarding, most challenging journey and job to date, but we are truly…

Becoming mom and dad…

We are at week 39 and what a journey this has been. Emotions are running high now with the anticipated arrival of our daughter so near (next week, fingers crossed) and the end of life as we know it. I often stroll through our home, baby stuff sprinkled throughout, and can’t help but start thinking…

Black. It is one of my favorite colors (or is it a non-color?!) The mood it sets, the contrast it creates… it just gives me all the feels, okay!? Inspiration Images Upon moving into our home, I knew the minute I laid eyes on our dining room with its bland walls, brass chandelier, white marble…

#HausofMeier: Home Gym

This room was originally a sitting room off the Orangerie, but quite frankly, we didn’t need another room to sit in. So after some convincing from my husband, we decided to transform the space into a home gym. And I am so happy we did! It is hard enough to get motivated at times, but…

#HausofMeier: Welcome

HOME DESIGN, WHAT THE ______?! The excitement of no longer renting four walls but owning a home we can call our very own triggers that childlike excitement I possess for all new, exciting life chapters. What may appear to be off–brand to you, feels more so right to me. I have an array of interests, home…

A Weekend in Bayfield: The Apostle Islands

The Apostle Islands. A holy name for a heavenly place. My first discovery of the Apostle Islands was on Pinterest of all places. Images of the infamous ice caves made an appearance on my search which led me into a deep dive to learning more about this destination. It was at that moment, years before…

Why I am not just a travel blogger anymore…

I fought it for a long while. I didn’t want to be an all-encompassing blog. I wanted to focus merely on travel, mostly pertaining to my home state of Wisconsin. But life happens and travel is a lot easier when you aren’t a new homeowner with a lot of projects and expenses. Tack on the…

One Year Without You

Today was not what I had thought it would be. I anticipated feeling low, hollow, and having the unpleasant reminders of what it felt like to see my mom take her last breath. And maybe it would have played out like this had I not absentmindedly scheduled our anatomy ultra-sound for this morning. Maybe it…
