Coffee Table Cookbooks

They say not to judge a book by its cover, but some books are just too pretty to keep tucked away in a book case. I’ve read a lot of books over the years, and recently I’ve been getting into cookbooks in a big way – and while I’d love to be that person with…

Minimalism?

I found myself deep in a YouTube rabbit hole recently. The kind where you’re watching a video and see something interesting pop up in the side bar… so you click it, and then click another link, and another, until you’re binge watching videos on a topic that didn’t exist in your world until three hours earlier. Maybe I’ve…

Winsome

W I N S O M E   I S   H E R E Winsome (the blog) has been a long time coming. From a hint of an idea, to a seasonal online magazine, and finally to a blog, Winsome has been unfolding and transforming for a long time. Yesterday, after much planning, designing, praying…

Huge Announcement

Friends! It has been quite a while between posts. Yes, this has partially been laziness (busyness might be a better description) but it’s also because I’ve been working towards something very close to my heart, that I’ve been waiting and waiting to share with you. In 2013, myself and two friends set out to start an…

Some Thoughts on Body Image

For me it was never the magazines, the TV shows or any of ‘the media’ – (ironically) I was never much into ‘the media’, whether by choice or by ignorance. For me it was always myself. Sure, I compared myself to my friends… “why can’t I have hair like…”, “why am I not as skinny as…”, “why is she…

The Best Kitchen Tea You Ever Did See!

There was everything from toilet paper wedding dresses, to a pre-recorded video from the groom to more sweet treats than 30 people could eat in a month. Almost everything was a surprise (except the date & time!) and I was completely blown away as we arrived at a close friend’s parents’ house, where they had strung…

Loving #2

I did a post like this a few weeks ago, & I had a lot of fun compiling a list of things I’ve been enjoying over recent weeks and months! I sometimes find myself appreciating things I never thought I’d enjoy, & I love having songs, books, verses, candles (etc. etc. etc.) recommended to me by others! I’m incredibly…

Wedding + Engagement Updates!

Peter took this picture of my ring earlier this year while we were in Munich, Germany. For me, pictures evoke feeling even more than words, and just seeing this photo fills me with so much excitement for the future and emotional memories about the night we got engaged (which now feels like a lifetime ago)!…

Loving

As a blogger, one of my favourite things to do is to read (and read and read and read…) other blogs. Naturally, I think that bloggers inspire each other with their thoughts, their creativity and their post ideas! I’ve been loving Erin James’s blog ‘It’s Erin James‘ (formerly ‘Sweetness Itself’) – especially her little ‘what I’m…

Food for Thought

It occurred to me tonight that I talk a fair bit about my faith here on this little corner of the internet, but I rarely happen to mention my church or the impact it’s had on my life and my growth in Christ. I’ve never known anything but church. My parents attended the church I go…
