O+H with Better Homes & Gardens!

I am pinching myself as I sit here looking at photos of my home from last Christmas on the Better Homes and Gardens website! A few months ago I received surprising news that BHG wanted to feature O+H on their Christmas website collection. After the initial jaw dropping shock, I immediately said yes and began waiting in anticipation to see it for myself (thinking I was totally being played). But, indeed it is real life! See for yourself here and here. Such a dream come true!

plaid and lace


This new addition has been a long time coming, my friends. For a while I've had the itch to express my style through outfit posts but continued shying away from the scary vulnerability of it all. But those days are gone thanks to the sweet and talented Violet Short! She brought me out of the shakes and made it feel like a walk in the park in front of her lens. She's amazing and so his her blog!

for the love of letters + a treat for you


I am delighted to share with you my darling friend, Erin Barrett, and her darling shop - For The Love Of Letters! 

I first met this southern beauty when she designed chalkboard signs for my salon. She exudes so much love and light,  it's contagious.  And she constantly blesses me with her sweet friendship and amazing talent.  You are going to fall head over heels for Erin and her designs! 


i'm a midwest gal with southern roots. graduated college in texas with a degree in communications & snagged myself a minnesoooota gentleman shortly after. dutch keeps my fire lit even though his career is putting them out. momma to liv & finn. lover of lip gloss, sharpie pens & glitter. i've loved to "letter" since i was old enough to hold crayolas. i always stick my tongue out when i write & still to this day, you can tell i've been busy when my lips are chapped. go figure. my style of lettering is full of personality, a little whimsy & a lot of fun. i like to refer to it as "perfectly imperfect." motherhood has changed my "career path" & i feel so so blessed to do what i LOVE to do while balancing being a firefighter wife with 2 littles. i hope these designs make your heart as happy as they have made mine.


Oh happy day!
