First let me say how is it September 1st already. Per my Blogiversary post, I stated  on September 1 I would be changing the name of this blog to better reflect where I am in life right now so Unlikely Martha has been born.  As I mentioned in that post I am very different person from who I was when I started this blog 5 years ago. From hating laundry to rushing to fold warm laundry fresh out of the…

This post is sponsored by Wayfair. All opinions are my own. Back to school shopping and getting back in to the routine has been exhausting to say the least. Getting back into a routine has been welcomed but also tiring and has required some adjustments. I’m so glad to finally have things running in order so that I can take the time to get my own schedule in place and have the time to do some things that I like…

{#OurProject52} Patterns

Patterns

When I hear the word “pattern” I see it as two ways, a design on clothing or decor items, or a way of doing things. This picture I captured on Instagram gave me a little of both. Running a house with two children a husband and working from home has really blurred the lines for me. I feel like I don’t get much separation of anything. In an effort to gain more balance I’ve been taking out the time to…

Two weeks ago Tia from The Chic SAHM and I revealed our before spaces for the start of our bi weekly organizational challenge where we encourage one another to get our homes organized and in order. With school starting it was only right that we did our children’s play and learning spaces. My children’s looked a little something like this. To see the rest of the before shots click here.

Just for me hair Milk colletion

“I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Just For Me. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” Growing up as an only child you learn to occupy your time in the most creative ways. I spent a ton of time as a child braiding and combing my doll’s hair. When I had Addison, I couldn’t wait for her hair to grow long enough so…

{#OurProject52} Leading Lines

When it comes to photography concepts one that I have down pat is the law of thirds. I favor this one, if you can’t tell. One that I have to really work on is leading lines, when done correctly they really do draw the eye to the edge of the photo almost making it seem as if it goes on forever. Leading lines give our photos depth, I find they come out very interesting when you get low, as in…

Step into Fall Style with Clarks Cloud Steppers

Cloudsteppers

I was provided product and compensation by Clarks for this post. All opinions are mine The lazy hazy days of Summer were more than likely not eagerly anticipated by children only, but longed for by busy mothers that needed a few weeks to relax and unwind without the worries of hurried schedules that are required to balance carpool duties, extracurricular activities and personal obligations. Summer not only relaxes the mind but encourages laid back clothing decisions that speak to comfort,…
