vivre bien 2017

vivre bien.

January 1, 2017

I realized late last week that Ember Grey has been around since December of 2013. WOW. I mean, that’s kind of a long time to be dedicating each day or week to one space, in addition to, you know, also living life. Ember Grey has been my place to share some pretty private heart-of-the-soul matters with a bunch of people – most of whom I’ve never met in real life but some who have become real-life friends and important people…

BIGGER: 2016, A Year in Review.

December 30, 2016

Move over, Gilmore Girls, today I’m doing my own little A Year in the Life! ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you were an EG reader this time last year, you’ll remember that I chose a word for 2016. If you’ve been an EG reader since the beginning, you’ll know that I do this every year and what’s more, I write my word on a rock, the date on the back, and then at the year’s end I put the rock in a big…

Gilmore Girls Revival: Wait, a year in WHOSE life?

December 19, 2016

If you are looking for the Grateful Heart linkup, head back to last week’s post and continue to link up there – it will be open until Friday! This week I’ll be recapping the Gilmore Girls Revival in a series of posts (Tuesday: Winter, Wednesday: Spring, Thursday: Summer, Friday: Fall) as well as hosting a special daily GG linkup for anyone else who has written/wants to share their thoughts on the revival! I have some pretty strong feelings, as you…

This is not a post about Gilmore Girls.

December 16, 2016

I had planned on writing and sharing my Gilmore Girls recap for you all today, as well as adding a linkup so we all could read everyone’s thoughts on the GG Revival but then I caught some kind of bug this week, have had an energy level of about 2, and have been knee deep in all things life. But mostly, my heart has been so very heavy for Aleppo. I could write a novel in itself about all of…

Santa! I know him!

December 12, 2016

Ok Monday, LET’S DO THIS. (Sometimes you have to pump yourself up and up and up on a Monday morning, am I right?) Good morning, all! Honestly, this morning snuck up on me. As I got into bed last night (at 9pm, for real) and realized I didn’t have a Grateful Heart post written for today yet, I could have gotten out of bed and thrown something together quickly. But I chose sleep ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyone else’s next few weeks crazy…

2016 Christmas Home Tour

December 7, 2016

I had so much fun doing a Holiday Home Tour last year, I thought I’d do it again this year! Apparently this is the only time I get around to posting an actual tour of our house; I promise it doesn’t look like this year-round. (Although I kinda like the idea of twinkle lights 12 months of the year.) Obviously this post is photo-heavy… but it’s supposed to be, right? I love our home. We’ve been in it for two…
